Hailey Bieber and Karla Welch are a match made in heaven. The celebrity stylist shared one of her client’s recent looks on Instagram on Sept. 7, and it immediately made our jaws drop.

The 26-year-old model and entrepreneur donned a stunning brown houndstooth jacket and matching pencil skirt by YSL. In addition to serving a major shoulder pad moment, Bieber gave us the best inspiration for mixing up our workwear moving forward. Instead of wearing a stuffy blouse or button-up underneath the blazer, the Rhode founder opted for a plunging black leather top. She added some more edge to her ensemble in the form of dark red pointed-toe slingback heels.

“🖤 HAILEY 🖤,” Welch wrote simply in her caption, with no extra explanation necessary. The stylist dressed her client for a Women in Power event, hosted by Women’s Wear Daily, Footwear News and Beauty Inc. in New York City on Sept. 7.

For glam, hairstylist Amanda Lee pulled Bieber’s short chestnut locks into a slicked-back high bun with one face-framing section left loose. Makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes opted for tons of blush and shimmery highlighter on Bieber’s cheekbones and brow bone, as well as a dark nude lip.

Tons of fans hyped up Bieber’s look in the comments section of Welch’s post.

“Fire,” Lisa Rinna stated.

“SHE IS THE MOMENT,” someone else gushed.

“MOTHER IS MOTHERING,” another person applauded.

“She’s glowing,” an additional follower noted. “The colours complement her so well. Good work Karla! 😍.”
