Try to think of two hotter phrases in the current internet lexicon than “Gigi Hadid” and “millennial pink.” Time’s up: They don’t exist. Now just think about what happens when those two phenomena join forces. Can’t even fathom?

She was snapped by paparazzi wearing the coat and carrying a bajillion roses on the streets of Manhattan. She wore the coat on a helicopter. She Instagrammed a picture with Zayn while wearing the coat and holding a coordinating millennial pink birthday cake.
Then she paired the coat with a pink wig for the evening festivities.
The coat in question? The Angela duster from the Alice + Olivia spring 2017 collection.
According to the brand, the coat sold out online almost immediately. Before the beginning of May—that’s a span of seven days—the Angela coat was sold out at retailers across the country. And today, dear reader, have we got news for you. It’s back in stock.
The Alice + Olivia Angela coat retails for $495. Get one. And perhaps some matching Gucci loafers?
