Hailey Gates is a woman who wears many hats -- formerly the director of advertising at The Paris Review, currently a model, an actress, a writer/producer and most recently, the host of Viceland's new series States of Undress. And here I am, wondering how I'm going to manage to get to yoga class after work...
The 26 year-old California native also has a very distinct style and look, which the fashion world has obviously taken note of -- she's been in numerous campaigns for brands like Derek Lam, Miu Miu and Wren. It would only make sense that she should host a show about fashion, but it's not what you might expect -- States of Undress has Hailey traveling to the far reaches of Pakistan, Congo and Russia, to name a few, exploring global fashion.
"The point of this show is to use fashion as an entry point to talk about identity issues and politics and sort of underreported cultural phenomenon and to be able to show both the light and the dark of these things."You can watch the full first episode of States of Undress here.
Here are some of my fave Hailey street style looks -- it's very sexy, yet demure in a vaguely French way, with all of the bows, braids and ruffles.
