Halsey worked with image architect Law Roach to source a custom couture outfit for the reveal of her If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power album art, which took place in video format at the Met. Daniel Roseberry of Schiaparelli delivered a regal dress with a sequined bodice and a silk saffron-peach wrap skirt for the occasion. It was the epitome of Halsey’s message that she posted alongside the cover on Instagram: “The idea that me as a sexual being and my body as a vessel and gift to my child are two concepts that can co-exist peacefully and powerfully.” Halsey’s look successfully symbolized the notion that women maintain full control of both the pride in their style and the strength in their presence while they embrace motherhood.
Halsey and Roach selected Loree Rodkin jewelry to play up the shimmer of this ensemble — the delicate drop earrings are particularly standout — and she walked through the rooms of the museum barefoot, revealing just a gold anklet on her left foot. The full 13-minute video is incredibly powerful to watch all by itself, but you can also click through to check out various angles of this Schiaparelli masterpiece that includes cutouts and textural clusters stitched onto the bodysuit. “This project is one of the most BEAUTIFUL things I’ve ever help create,” Roach posted underneath the official album lensed by Lucas Garrido, in which Halsey poses in a Corvus + Crux gown. But it’s safe to say Roseberry’s Schiaparelli dress brought this moment all the glamour, nobility, and movement it called for.
