Bella Hadid Had To Be Sewn Into Her Met Gala Catsuit

“I couldn’t pee because I was sewn in from the top”

The Rei Kawakubo theme at this year's Met Gala prompted many a wild wardrobe choice, but one which really turned heads was model Bella Hadid in an Alexander Wang bodysuit. It was skin-tight, sheer, beaded, off-the-shoulder, and with a plunging back. In other words, it was awesome, and the model shared the experience of wearing it with U.K. Harper's Bazaar.

Wearing the catsuit was not as easy as just throwing it on. "It was nerve-wracking," she said. "I couldn't pee because I was sewn in from the top. I put my foot in the wrong part of the leotard at one point, so I had to take it off and put it back on again." What's that about not being able to pee the whole evening? We will now be taking ourselves out of the running for wearing an Alexander Wang catsuit. 

Not peeing sounds like the worst of it though, because Hadid swears was comfy AF. "It was also really comfortable," she said. "When you watch videos from the night, I'm literally skipping on the red carpet—I was the one person who could actually sprint on the red carpet, so that was pretty ace."

Another thing that's ace? Having Alexander Wang make you a catsuit. "I was worried about wearing a catsuit when other people were wearing full gowns, but fashion is about taking risks and I wore a crystallised full bodysuit to the Met Ball, I guess that was the risk that I took and it was really fun," she said. Amen to that.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
