As soon as I saw pics of Gigi Hadid wearing this outfit in the Spring 2016 Balmain show, I just knew I had to create an illustration featuring this look. I adore the “too glam to give a damn” vibe that Balmain exudes, and my goal was to capture that feeling in this drawing. Also, the Balmain aesthetic is all about embellishment and extravagant details (as evidenced by this graphic metal skirt), and I seem to have this odd obsession with rendering intricate details.
High quality prints of this illustration are currently available in my Etsy shop. Click here for details.
