Hailey Baldwin re-created paparazzi images of Princess Diana for a new Vogue Paris shoot — complete with all the crew socks, crewneck sweaters and cowboy boots the deceased royal was known for.
In one stellar image, the 22-year-old model sports a red, oversize Boston University crewneck and shiny black bike shorts, with white crew socks and matching retro sneakers.

new story for @vogueparis shot by @gstyles styled by @virginiebenarroch 💕 all credit and inspo to the amazingly beautiful and iconically stylish Princess Diana who I’ve looked to for style inspiration for as long as I can remember. Thank you for leaving behind such an iconic fashion and style legacy.
In another re-creation, Baldwin wears a baseball cap, blazer, mom jeans and brown Western boots.
Known as the most-photographed woman in the world, Princess Diana was caught on camera in many an on-the-go look. Her thrown-together outfits were an ode to simple ’90s style — often featuring sweatshirts, mom jeans and shorts with crew socks. Like daughter-in-law Kate Middleton, Lady Di loved her Superga sneakers. Her other go-to casual shoe? The Western boot — effortlessly teamed with blazers or sweatpants for a distinctly Diana look.
The Princess Di-inspired looks won over netizens — and Twitter was buzzing with discussion of the shoot.
“What do we think of miss hailey bieber channeling princess diana for miss vogue? i personally think it’s works but that’s just me,” wrote @hautelemess, in a tweet that garnered over 500 retweets and 5,500-plus likes.
“Hailey Bieber’s Princess Diana themed photo shoot is everything,” @anniejdowney wrote.
“I was never a fan of Hailey Bieber until NOW. She is absolutely killing it in each and every photo, serve that Princess Diana vibe gal,” read another post from @ohmygaibrielle.
“This shoot was so sophisticated and spot on with the inspiring of Princess Diana,” read a tweet by@Dina921. “Best shoot I’ve seen Hailey on.“
Not everyone was impressed with the shoot, however, with one troll writing: “Princess Diana doesn’t deserve this.”
