She looks incredible though

While the Hailey Bieber white dress look has sparked some online controversy, we can't help but marvel at the sheer elegance of the backless, high-neck number. 

Taking to Instagram on Monday, June 26, 2023, the Rhode founder graced our feeds with close-up snaps of her white dress—the fabric of which was definitely giving 'glazed'. The look did, however, spark some discourse as Hailey seemingly wore it to a wedding, which is usually a big no-no. The color itself was also a subject of much debate in the comments though, with many claiming that it's actually a very pale, icy blue not white. 

Regardless of your dress stance though, the fit is still a serve and one we want to replicate in our own capsule wardrobes. So, here's where to shop her exact dress, plus some affordable swaps that still capture her ethereal vibe.

Where to shop the Hailey Bieber white dress

Hailey's exact dress is available at Fanci Club but be warned, it will set you back $420. Currently, it's also only available in red or black but thankfully, you can find dresses with similar elements to her dress elsewhere. 

Despite her recent love affair with all things 'Balletcore', like Hailey's pink slip dress outfit, the model traded pink for a very pale, pastel blue (almost white) dress, which featured long sleeves, a high neck and a low-cut back.

She accessorized the look with some diamond drop earrings—yet more proof that Hailey Bieber's earrings never miss—a fluffy blue shoulder bag and a Y2K beauty-inspired baby blue eyeshadow look. Hailey also wore her bob hairstyle down, creating the perfect contrast between her blunt bob and long, sleek dress.

The dress itself is minimalist and perfect for summer-time events or any formal event really (though perhaps not a wedding), thanks to its long sleeves and maxi length.

Simple, bodycon and maxi dresses like Hailey's are truly a staple in your wardrobe because they're low-effort and easy to dress up to achieve that sophisticated look. For fall and winter, we'd recommend pairing this dress with some gold hoops and a blazer—or perhaps one of Hailey's fave leather jackets
