Kendall Jenner & Hailey Bieber were on midriff-y trend last night for an LA party

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber stun as they arrive at Stassie’s Birthday party

Where were you when you realized that 2021 was going to be The Year of Tube Tops? For me, it was watching this year’s Oscars. So many celebrity women had complained about how they missed getting all dressed up for awards shows, and then at the first opportunity, several women chose two-piece dresses or gowns with major midriff vibes. Even I was able to trendspot the style energy for Pandemic Year #2: Abs, Midriffs, Barely Any Support For the Girls. It feels like a particular kind of flex from the slender women who stayed in shape during the pandemic.

Since the Oscars, the sartorial choice has continued. In Instagrams, street-style photos and parties, the ladies have been going Full Tube Top. This style really came out of left field for me! But here are Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber attending Anastasia ‘Stassie’ Karanikolaou’s 24th birthday party at Goya Studios last night in LA and both of them chose “two piece” looks. Kendall went with trousers and a tube top and Hailey went with a bikini/bra top and a matching skirt. I totally get this vibe if you’re on vacation and going out to dinner at a beach-front restaurant. But it just seems… I don’t know. Odd, I guess. I’m trying to figure out what Kendall’s ensemble is made out of. Is it leather? Pleather? Whatever, it genuinely is the trend this year and all of the (skinny) ladies are doing it.

Kendall’s lips have been weird for the better part of two years.

    I honestly think the two piece look is universally pretty ugly, and these two outfits are no exception. I’ve rarely seen this look good except in an editorial way on waif models that are 6 foot 5.

    • Robin says:

      I agree. With all that money and time and styling, I’d have gone in a different direction for the outfit.

  2. Krista says:

    Bell bottoms, tube tops, clips…the 90’s fashion of my high school days is making a comeback and it makes me feel soooo old

    • GG says:

      Yes! My (nearly) 20 year old niece told me that freaking low rise jeans are back and there’s a style trend called Y2K fashion… it’s so offensive.

    • Eleonor says:

      I was chatting about this trend with a friend, and we said “Thank God we are 40 now, we are out of this mess!”

    • teehee says:

      It doesn’t make me feel old. It makes me feel like these young kids are so silly trying to tell people what to wear. LIke don’t tell me abut scrunchies and puffy headbands, ok. I grew up when it was first invented- the biker shorts, the lace-edged leggings, the stirrups, …. I already know my styles thanks.

  3. MipMip says:

    Hailey looks bored and sad. Justin must have done something to bum her out.

  4. rainbowkitty says:

    I see blown-up lips and desperation.

  5. Lemon says:

    They both look miserable! Is it a party or a super casual funeral?

  6. Ann says:

    I will never wear a strapless bra or tube top again. I swear I am reliving my sophomore year of high school fashion wise this year. Tube tops had a moment back then and it was freaking nightmare trying to contain my huge floppy knockers in them. Lesson learned.

    Props to the small busted, and maybe the large busted ones too, who can rock a tube top. They function only as a torture devise for me.

    • rainbowkitty says:

      I’ve had a large bust my whole life. I can be thin or have a few extra pounds on and the boobs stay the same. I’d love to be able to go braless but that’s not an option for me.

      • Robin says:

        Exactly! Even when I’ve been thin, way too thin, my breasts have stayed the same.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      Other side of the coin. I’m a B and envy cleavage. And you still need help to get cleavage. I doubt those girls are stuffing tissues in there.

    • Courtney B says:

      @ann ‘huge floppy knockers’ 😂 😂 As a DD I feel your pain. Literally.

    • AmB says:

      Yeah, and sophomore year was back in the 70s which I *think* was the first time around for this, at least in public.

      It’s a look that has not aged well. I don’t care how “fit” (skinny) the wearer, nekkid = tacky.

      • Ann says:

        My sophomore year was 2002. I don’t have a problem with the naked. I love getting to a certain level of clad in appropriate settings, mainly concerts. I just need my boobs supported.

    • Robin says:

      Ann are you British? You must be, unless “knockers” is also used elsewhere. I love the word – it is so 70s/80s. Thanks for the memory lane with just one word.

  7. megs283 says:

    Ya know, I am not a skinny gal, but I am embracing the crop top life. I’ve wanted one, so I got one. It’s mainly an “at my house” style, but I’m hoping to hit the right point in how to wear it and wear it in public.

  8. Becks1 says:

    Well I am not wearing one, lol.

  9. Lululu says:

    Ugh, try raising teenage girls with this all going on. “That is not a shirt” is my new favorite thing to say when we are shopping together.

  10. Lucy says:

    Kendall truly has some talent to turn even the most interesting looks into basic and boring.

  11. Lucy says:

    How tall is Kendall? She looks like a giant, and towers over Hailey. I thought Hailey was tall? Is Kendall 6 feet tall?

    • Lyds says:

      Yes, I always forget how short Hailey is until she’s pictured next to her model friends. She and Justin are practically the same height.

      Also, Kendall is walking slightly ahead…is that always the case? Is it a Taylor swift situation where the most photographed person always walks ahead of her friends?

      • Humbugged says:

        Well Kendall now has security 24/7 so he goes first ,then Kenny ,then her friends because of her stalker problems

        If fact the only place she was unsafe was at the Staples last week when she was being harrased by pissed off Lakers fans because DBook knocked them out the playoffs

    • Laura says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Kendall looks so tall compared to her — so Hailey must just look tall compared to her husband. But it could be a little perspective going on in this photo, Kendall is taller and is positioned closer than Hailey, who is shorter.

  12. ReginaGeorge says:

    These are the kinds of outfits I was wearing out to the clubs in the late 90’s, early aughts. Everything old is new again. And while my 20 year old self could wear tube tops, 44 yr old me can’t. So I guess I will be missing this trend.

  13. Courtney B says:

    Seemingly every girl in our college town is wearing Jean shorts and bikini tops.

  14. SarahCS says:

    I’m no fan of the tube top but I find them less offensive than those square toed sandals that are suddenly everywhere. I have a vivid hate for those.

  15. Renee says:

    I can’t speak to the tube top, but I wonder if either one of these ladies have picked up a book recently? How about the last year or two? Yeah….I’m guessing no.

    • Hell Nah! says:

      @Renee: I’m going to guess no, too.

      Tube tops aside, for me, these two exemplify the heights of vapidity and boredom.

  16. Watson says:

    Good for these two young whipper snappers!

    I on the other hand will be comfortable in my homer simpson like mumu. This old lady likes comfort!

  17. serena says:

    I like the top trend, especially with jeans. Hailey Bieber’s is basically a bra though, not a top, but whatever makes them happy I guess.

  18. Midge says:

    It’s crazy how much werk these young women have had done. Hailey’s wearing a bra and her boob job is not great. And Kendell is wearing a bandeau top.

  19. timmywimmy says:

    Kendall is still with Lauren Perez; saw them together a few weeks ago. I wonder why they do not hang out with Camila Morrone, as they used to pal around in the same group.
