This time the supermodel and wife of Justin Bieber rocked another iconic vintage look, namely the motorcycle jacket. She donned a 90s Vintage ‘Pink Panther U.S. President’ Leather Jacket from vintage specialists Starwear Status. The exact jacket set her back $695 from their website, and because of its archive origins it is a one of a kind piece. The boutique has garnered high-fashion fans such as Bella Hadid, who has also worn their wares.
Hailey paired the jacket with the HB trousers from her own collection with Wardrobe NYC and Saint Laurent’s 557 sunnies. Oversized gold doorknocker earrings only added to the elevated vintage aesthetic of her ensemble.

RELATED: The motorcycle jacket has come roaring back into fashion
Vintage motorcycle jackets have been having a moment since late 2022, “Padded shoulders, shiny hardware and a whole load of leather have been all the rage for some of our favourite celebrities recently, and we can’t wait to hop on the back of the outerwear trend,” explains Hello! Fashion’s Orin Carlin, “Motorcycle jackets are an excellent outerwear option on account of their versatility.”
Back in August 2022 at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony, Jorja Smith opted for a custom navy jacket featuring white piping. The Blue Lights singer’s outerwear and matching straight-leg trousers was created by emerging label Atelier Mundane. Kylie Jenner is also a fan of the trend, that same month the 24-year-old entrepreneur gave major Xtina vibes with a rare red-and-white motorcycle jacket (matching with her then-boyfriend Travis Scott, naturally), straight from the Thierry Mugler spring 1990 archive.
