On Saturday evening, Hailey Bieber made an appearance at the Barbara Berlanti Heroes Gala benefiting F*ck Cancer, held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The 25-year-old model wore a gorgeous coral pink form-fitting dress with a plunging halter neckline. The Vivienne Westwood dress featured a fun asymmetric frill down the front of Hailey’s body and a corseted bodice, and came down just below her knees.
She paired the dress with nude open-toe heels and had her hair swept up in a sleek bun. She was wearing large diamond cluster earrings, and fairly natural makeup except for a deep mauve lip color. She appeared to have a matching dark red manicure and pedicure.
Hailey posed with Yael Cohen, who is the co-founder of F*ck Cancer. Cohen wore an olive green maxi dress that trailed to the ground with one shoulder and a thigh high slit.
Justin Bieber and his wife have been seen out and about in Los Angeles lately as the pop star recovers from various health issues and exhaustion, which have kept him from fulfilling his 2022 tour plans. Recently, Hailey has been openly discussing her marriage and the specifics of how she and Justin came together just months after he split with his longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez.
The comments were made when Hailey appeared on Wednesday’s episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast. In the interview, Hailey insisted that everything between herself and Gomez was about “respect” and that they have spoken in private since the Bieber’s marriage.
She added, “It’s all love.”
“She doesn’t owe me anything,” Hailey continued. “Neither of us owe anybody anything except respect. I respect her a lot, and I think there are no expectations [between us]. I respect her… Everybody on our side knows what happened, and we’re good, and we can walk away from it with clarity and respect. [That] has brought me a lot of peace. We know what happened. It is what it is.”
Gomez eventually did a livestream on her TikTok account admonishing her fans who have criticized Hailey, encouraging people to speak “kind words.”
