9 Times Celebs Dressed Like They Were in ‘The Matrix’

With ’90s style trends coming back full force in recent seasons, it’s no surprise the 1999 film “The Matrix” is influencing today’s fashion scene. Thanks to Neo (Keanu Reeves), Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) — small-framed sunglasses, patent leather and the long black coats have been spotted on the most influential style stars.

Just last night, for instance, Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o made an appearance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” looking like she came straight out of the ’90s sci-fi film. Wearing black patent pointed-toe slingback sandals by Christian Louboutin, the actress donned a long black trench coat and round black-out shades to complete her look.

If there’s going to be a reboot of the movie, we know who to call.

Model Bella Hadid is the queen of rocking all-leather looks and those tiny ’90s sunglasses. She’s been spotted on multiple occasions wearing all-black, dominatrix-like ensembles.

But it was her sister Gigi Hadid who really brought “The Matrix” style to life when she stepped out with boyfriend Zayn Malik to celebrate his 25th birthday last month.

Hadid wore a black coated-shell trench from Helmut Lang’s resort ’18 collection with black crocodile-patterned pants, sleek pointy black boots and a croc embossed Tod’s handbag. Meanwhile, Malik opted for round, white-rimmed sunglasses from Dior Homme, a long black coat from Dsquared2, Givenchy trousers and lug sole lace-ups by Prada.
