The Low-Key Cool Way Nicole Kidman and Bella Hadid Are Wearing Non-Skinny Jeans

I'll admit that I never thought the day would come that Nicole Kidman and Bella Hadid would be spotted just hours apart wearing almost the same outfit. Then again, I didn't expect the Big Little Lies star to make her runway debut at Balenciaga's fall 2022 Couture show either, so what do I know? 

It was the show that brought Kidman and Hadid together in Paris, where they seemed to coordinate outfits for the night-before fitting (Kidman) and the post-show exit (Hadid). The unexpected duo donned Balenciaga's now-iconic bug-eye sunglasses, basic tops—Kidman chose a long-sleeve black bodysuit, and Hadid wore a cropped white tee paired with a black track jacket—ultra-baggy denim, and point-toe heels. In other words, they set the stage for fashion's new favorite way to wear non-skinny jeans: with pumps and a simple basic. Groundbreaking, I know. 

Though simple, the three-piece outfit formula is also seriously cool. It is a Balenciaga creation, after all. Shop the uncomplicated recipe for success below.
