Hailey Bieber: Supermodel Stockings
Hailey Bieber is fashion royalty. And why wouldn't she be? From cradle to the catwalk, the supermodel and niece of Alec Baldwin has been steeped in all things couture. From learning to walk on the red carpet to strutting with confidence through fashion weeks worldwide – haute couture has formed the backdrop of Baldwin's life.
And need we even mention her band of supermodel, designer, and fashion industry friends that casually set the tone for new trends daily? We've all seen them – we've all thought, “I want to wear that!”
Hailey Bieber: A Fashion Industry Veteran
She has walked through her life in luxury designer brands, even being selected as Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana to wear and showcase the best of their newest collections. And just this year, Victoria's Secret snapped her up as part of their rebranding. So it's no surprise she regularly finds herself at the forefront of trends, sampling them and making her own mark.
And now, much to our delight, she has endorsed the sheer, black stockings trend!
Does this Mean Stockings are Trending in 2022?
Yes, it's officially official. While we know that Dua Lipa and Kourtney Kardashian have already relit the thigh high flame, Bieber set it ablaze.
And we have a good excuse for our prejudice. Dua Lipa and Kourtney Kardashian were undeniably gorgeous in thigh highs, calling on timeless, classic styles and exuding elegance at every turn.
But, there was a vintage edge to their ensembles, drawing inspiration from previous eras when stockings en vogue.
A Study in Stockings in 2022 by Hailey Bieber
For Hailey Bieber, the look was oh-so delightfully modern and entirely experimental, in what appears to be Bieber's attempt at mix & matching several current fashion trends.
Worn for a Malibu party celebrating Kendall Jenner's tequila brand, 818. It was thigh highs in the 21st century. Gen Z trends of edgy cutouts met millennial padded shoulders. The deconstructed blazer mini dress forms the best of Blumarine's fall 2022 presentation. Cutouts were clearly the theme of this outfit, giving the illusion of a two-piece set. This brings us to cutouts that only thigh highs can create. Wearing sheer, black thigh-high stockings, Bieber added flair by showing the garter band at the top – and we love it.

In fact, upon first glance, we thought it was REGINA! Our REGINA style is silky sheer with a chunky, solid black band, and she's entirely to die for.
Hailey Bieber: A Devoted Lifelong Fan of Stockings?
All things considered, Bieber looked almost like a female James Bond with smooth lines and striking black making up the entirely chic look. Her thigh highs show that the gorgeous garments can be worn under the sun, moon, and for all occasions while maintaining an undeniable authority and elegance.
But this isn't the first time Bieber has sported stay ups (another name for thigh highs), having been photographed wearing Fall 2022 Over The Knee Socks. As well, while doing her usual rounds during fashion week, she was spotted at the Saint Laurent show, dressed in Saint Laurent head to toe and in super sheer tights.
Does this lead us to believe that Hailey Bieber loves stockings? Of course! And why wouldn't she? Stockings are versatile, comfortable, high-fashion, and oh-so beautiful. At VienneMilano, we know this, because we watch our collection of luxury stockings be just that every day – why not take a peek at them for yourself?
