Where does one of the most revered style icons of our generation get her outfit inspiration from? While the rest of us are turning to her extensive wardrobe back catalogue for an inspo boost, it appears that Hailey Bieber is sourcing her sartorial ideas from 90s sci-fi cinematic hits – specifically The Matrix.

Party season was chock-a-block for the 26-year-old, but rest assured, Hailey rose to the occasion. From plunging teal Vivienne Westwood numbers to thong-style cut-out Mugler LBDs, the Rhode founder certainly raised the style stakes in December.
But since entering 2023, Hailey certainly hasn't dropped the ball – in fact she has kept the momentum going with a piece of outerwear that we can't get enough of.
Following a quick snowy getaway alongside husband Justin Bieber and pal Kendall Jenner, the supermodel touched down in Los Angeles and wasted no time in giving us yet another major winter style moment.

Hailey exuded new year radiance as she rocked a glossy black leather trench coat from Saint Laurent's AW22 collection. The statement piece, featuring broad lapels, a double-breasted button design and a buckle belt, would have turned The Matrix's Trinity wild with envy.

Matrix-inspired fashion looks are nothing new – the film’s costume designer Kym Barrett supercharged the cyberpunk aesthetic with glossy trenches, fierce corsets and more leather than you can shake a stick at. In recent years plenty of the industry’s top labels have referenced the 1999 hit, including Balenciaga’s SS19 and Tom Ford’s AW19 collections respectively.
The supermodel topped off her edgy outerwear with minimalist flared leggings by Set Active, padded Puma mules and, naturally, a Matrix must-have: a pair of ultra-skinny sunglasses - Hailey's weapon of choice was The Attico’s Thea design. Neo could never.
