Gigi Hadid Introduces Super Low-Rise Boyfriend Jeans to Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber

Gigi Hadid is getting low. And she may be on to something.

Madé Lapuerta, the creator behind Data but Make It Fashion, spent the weekend running a sentiment analysis through all the mentions of “low-rise jeans” on X (basically, she compiled tweets and did some math that I don’t quite understand in order to gauge the public’s opinion on low-slung denim). She discovered that the popularity of lowriders had increased by 36% in the past week alone.


But the research could have been biassed: Might Lapuerta also be acting as the invisible hand behind Gigi Hadid’s wardrobe? After all, the model did wear a pair of hip-huggers to dine at Giorgio Baldi (the only restaurant in LA) with Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber 24 hours prior to Lapuerta’s announcement. This is entirely skeptical—in fact, it is a joke!—but it’s a little fortuitous that Hadid chose this weekend to break from her baggier silhouettes.

Hailey Bieber wore a printed minidress and orange clutch bag to dinner.

Of course, these weren’t the bell-bottom jeans beloved by Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan in the ’00s.. Hadid’s were still wide-leg—and perhaps slashed at the waist with a pair of scissors—and she wore them with Miu Miu loafers as opposed to the spaghetti-strapped stilettos of the aughts. Since reentering the mainstream, these jeans continue to divide opinion, but as with all trends in the online age, that is where they will remain: frozen in amber with Uggs and Saddle bags.
