when tryna be cute goes wrong
Chlöe kicked off the holiday break with a little humor. The “Treat Me” singer took to Instagram to share a stunning photo shoot, wearing a plunging black dress and 6-inch stilettos. But TikTok is where she really let loose, revealing a behind-the-scenes moment where, in the midst of hitting several poses, she tripped and almost fell on set. Of course, like the consummate professional she is, the 24-year-old star recovered gracefully, laughing at herself while she fixed her dress. “When tryna be cute goes wrong,” she captioned the video clip.
Chlöe’s Christmas-themed shoot featured a micro minidress with a low neckline that plunged down to her navel. Feathers covered the bodice and low-rise skirt, while the back was left completely open save for a small string. Though her vertiginous heels were challenging to wear, Chlöe’s shoes complemented her dress perfectly. The 6-inch sandals boasted a metallic heel and platform, along with a toe and ankle strap adorned with matching feathers. To bring the look together, the Victoria’s Secret PINK spokesperson wore dangling earrings in each ear.
While her outfit was certainly a show stopper, most of the conversation on social media centered around her hair. Showing the versatility of locs, she wowed in a lace-front wig in a half-up, half-down style, replete with baby hairs laid on her forehead. “Whoever did chloe’s wig over the locs need a RAISE,” one Twitter user wrote. “Representation matters because until Chloe and Halle hit the streets I did not know you could be doing all this with locs,” posted another.
The songwriter is known for taking sartorial risks, whether stepping out in a double-slit gown, a cutout dress, or a fitted catsuit. In a previous interview with POPSUGAR, Halle Bailey revealed that Chlöe’s bold approach to fashion inspires her. “Chlöe’s always been so good at finding clothes that just show off her amazing figure,” she said. “So I find that as I’m getting older — I’m 22 now — I’m trying to figure out how to do the same kind of thing. I look up to her in that way. She’s my style inspiration. Because comfort is key, but you still want to look sexy. It’s just finding that balance.”
