Fresh off her internet-breaking moment hugging Selena Gomez at the Academy Museum Gala, Hailey Bieber went out again in Los Angeles, dressed to impress. Bieber attended ELLE’s 2022 Women in Hollywood event at the Getty Center wearing brown bodycon dress by Saint Laurent. She had her hair styled down in waves and accessorized with delicate hoop earrings, statement bracelets, and dark heels.
Bieber also attended ELLE’s Women in Hollywood event last year, where she wore Miu Miu.
A source explained to Entertainment Tonight over the weekend why Bieber and Gomez decided to pose together on Saturday. “Selena and Hailey were both super chill together at the Academy Museum Gala,” the source said. “They’ve both moved on and are happy in their own lives. They wanted to show the world that there’s no beef or bad feelings between them anymore.” Bieber, of course, is married to Gomez’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. Fans pitted the women against each other for years despite them privately being on good terms.
Bieber herself spoke about their relationship during her Call Her Daddy interview. “Yes, [we have spoken]. Yes [we have spoken after my marriage],” she said. “So that’s why I’m like, it’s all respect, it’s all love. It’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened, and we’re good and we could walk away with clarity and respect, then that’s fine. Which had brought me a lot of peace, and I’m like, ‘hey, we know what happened. It is what it is.’ You’re never going to be able to correct every narrative, and there’s going to be new ones that come [from this interview]. It’s never going to end, and that’s why I get to the point where like, that’s why I didn’t speak about a lot of this stuff because I’m like, there will be something new.”
