Hailey Bieber has channeled Princess Diana in her latest photo shoot with Vogue Paris, as the model recreates iconic paparazzi images of the princess.
On Wednesday, the 22-year-old model revealed the photo shoot, and it was inspired by Princess Diana’s style specifically when she was off duty running daily errands around London.
‘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,’ Hailey wrote on Instagram while sharing a slew of images from the Vogue Paris shoot.

Fashion icon: The photo shoot sought inspiration from paparazzi pictures of Diana in the ’90s, including one of her attending the Guards Polo Club (pictured)
Killing it: People online commended the new photo shoot for Vogue Paris
Effortless: Some fans thought Hailey was able to easily mirror Princess Diana in the shoot
She added: ‘Thank you for leaving behind such an iconic fashion and style legacy.’
The photo shoot involved Princess Diana’s more causal moments from when she was snapped by the paparazzi in the ’90s, including one moment of her holding her car keys in her mouth while digging through her bag.
Hailey then mimicked this look for the photo shoto by also placing car keys in between her teeth.
The outfit was then made similar with biker shorts, which Diana was known to wear around town, and an oversized sweatshirt.
She then paired the look with ankle socks and tennis shoes, both of which Diana was pictured wearing. For hair, Hailey left her short blonde locks messy and pushed back to mirror that of Princess Diana during the time.
Another paparazzi picture Hailey was inspired by for her shoot with Vogue involved Princess Diana wearing blue jeans with cowboy boots and an oversized blazer to the Guards Polo Club in Berkshire.
Hailey mirrored the outfit with modern alterations but created an overall look similar to what Diana, even down to the baseball cap.
Staying with theme: Another image involved Hailey in a different oversized sweater to mirror Diana, but modern alterations were added to the look
Praise: The compliments kept pouring in for the model after the photo shoot was revealed
People online commended Hailey for posing in the photo shoot and honoring Princess Diana several decades after her death.
‘I was never a fan of Hailey Bieber until NOW,’ one person wrote after seeing the new shoot. ‘She is absolutely killing it in each and every photo, serve that Princess Diana vibe gal.’
Other people were in agreement, writing: ‘Hailey Bieber Inspired by Princess Diana for Vogue Paris. She’s flawless, it’s unfair.’
Another fan thought it was the ‘best shoot’ Hailey has participated in since the beginning of her career. ‘This shoot was so sophisticated and spot on with the inspiring of Princess Diana,’ the fan wrote.
There were some people who were not happy with the inspired photo shoot, though, specifically because it came the same week as the 22nd anniversary of Diana’s death.
Princess Diana died in Paris, France, on August 31, 1997 after sustaining injuries from a car crash.
Was this planned? One person was confused by the photo shoot after it was released the same week as the anniversary of Princess Diana’s death
Critic: There were people who criticized the photo shoot after it was unveiled
Not impressed: Some critics said Hailey was not the best person to impersonate Diana
Mad: People thought the photo shoot didn’t hit the same notes with them as it did with others
‘Vogue Paris styling Hailey Bieber as Princess Diana the week of her death sure is…something…’ one person wrote after viewing the images.
Other people expressed similar sentiments about Hailey attempting to channel the fashion icon.
‘It’s offensive because Diana is on a different level to be impersonated by a B- model,’ someone commented.
Another person wrote: ‘Lmao what was Vogue Paris thinking dressing Hailey Bieber as princess Diana no no no ew no princess Diana deserves better.’
Whether Hailey and Vogue Paris intended to release the photo shoot during the same week of Diana’s death remains unclear.
