Last night, Bella Hadid proved her love for literature at a Bottega Veneta dinner held at The Strand. Well, sort of. She wasn’t holding any specific book, but rather she left the event at the iconic New York bookstore last night wearing a loose shredded denim dress, sturdy square-toe black boots, a bicep bracelet, and a leather tote that boasted The Strand’s logo. The supple piece is a collaboration between the Italian House and the downtown literary establishment and comes in both yellow and black.
Hadid has always had a love for all-things literary. A few years ago, the supermodel walked out with her reading material, the novel TheOutsider by Stephen King. She also showed the 560-page hardcover novel off while in-flight: a pair of lime green knit gloves with a cherry print Murakami Louis Vuitton duffle bag.
This isn’t Hadid’s first fling with The Strand either. Last year, she was spotted wearing a sweatshirt from The Strand, a simple gray piece of under-$35 merch with the logo on the chest.
As for this look, a shredded denim dress with the freshest leather tote that combines books and luxury? Let’s just call Bella the belle of belles lettres.
