During the futuristic conclusion of Coperni’s show at Paris Fashion Week 2022 on Friday, Bella Hadid was spray-painted into a frock.
The 25-year-old model made her debut during the conclusion of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2023 runway show at the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris, France, wearing nothing but a pair of panties and kitten heels, as evidenced by photographs.
Hadid stood immobile on a white-lit stage as an audience observed a crew of specialists arrive with spray paint hoses and paint a basic white maxi dress.
After the skin-tight dress’s fabric had hardened, another member of the specialized team emerged and used scissors to make alterations, including adding a thigh-high slit and off-the-shoulder sleeves.
Bella Hadid stated that she would “never forget this moment.”

Fabrican, a firm that devised the material that can be sprayed straight onto skin to produce a wearable costume, created Hadid’s finale dress, according to Vogue.
According to Fabrican’s website, the procedure “creates new opportunities for personalized design by enabling the addition of individual touches to manufactured items or even impromptu alterations.”
Hadid, Coperni, and Fabrican spokespeople did not reply promptly to Insider’s request for comment.
The completed garment included a slit and sleeves that were worn off the shoulder.
