From TikTok to world tours, the 'rockstar girlfriend' aesthetic is the latest micro trend to place the internet in a chokehold.

With over 33 million views on TikTok alone, both the runway and real life is being saturated by the resurgence of the debaucherous and hedonistic style of some of the most fashionable counterparts to the world's most famous musicians.

Of course, most modern day style icons from Kate Moss and Bianca Jagger to Alexa Chung and Anita Pallenberg have transcended from rockstar girlfriend to certified style star (or vice versa).

However a vanguard of celebrities are pioneering a new form of rockstar dressing, and there is no one who embodies this new wave of style better than Hailey Bieber.

But before we explore how the likes of Hailey Bieber, Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are shifting the needle on the 'rockstar girlfriend' style, we need to look back at the trends' roots and how the aesthetic came to be.

Below, behold everything you need to know about the 'rockstar aesthetic'.

What Is The Rockstar Girlfriend Aesthetic?

Through TikTok's eyes, the rockstar girlfriend aesthetic embodies the jet-setting, illicit-substance fuelled existence of a groupie-esque girlfriend, or 'band aid' as Peggy Lane from the iconic 2000s film Almost Famous prefers to call themselves.

Set to the tune of Hole, AM era Arctic Monkeys and Blondie, short-video montages sees aspirational images of Kate Moss draped in fur stumbling out of London pubs, stills from The 1975's 'Robbers' music videos and a romanticized view of 'being with the bands'.

However, each of these videos frame the 'rockstar girlfriend' as a passive accompaniment to the main act: the rockstar.

These TikTok's perpetuate the subservient, dutiful and misogynistic view of what a girlfriend should be—a woman to be controlled.

Sure, their Vivienne-Westwood punk-era ensembles and plethora of latex, leather and leopard prints may be a style to emulate, the 'rockstar girlfriend' aesthetic promotes an unrealistic and glamorized outlook of what life on the road is like.

Thanks to the pandemic, and trends like night luxe and indie sleaze, Gen-Z has never been more ready to shed the cookie-cutter styles of the early 2020's and embrace an unrestrained and epicurean lifestyle.

  Jestina Franklin leads celeb arrivals at Versace store opening Jestina Franklin lead Sydney's glamorous fashion set on Thursday as she sported a tiny blue mini-dress for the opening of a new Versace store in Sydney. The model, 29, looked every inch the yummy mummy as she showed off her toned pins in a pair of towering heels. Meanwhile, Liam Hemsworth's model girlfriend Gabriella Brooks, 25, showed off her washboard abs in a black crop top and maxi skirt - which she paired with leather boots and a red jacket.

Nevertheless, wearing smokey eye makeup and wearing ripped fishnet stockings à la Effy Stonem is more dangerous than meets the eye.

Jane Macfarlane, art director of the Digital Fairy, explained to The Face that the 'rockstar girlfriend' aesthetic is not only "hetronormative, typically glorifying white, cis and straight relationships" but also "usually promotes being super thin and a ​'cigarette for breakfast' lifestyle, which is pretty triggering for a lot of people".

Of course, in these videos, the 'rockstar girlfriend' has been reduced to a side character in the rockstar's lives. However the new wave of 21st century girlfriends are anything but.

They're businesswomen, entrepreneurs, style icons in their own right and even rock stars themselves.

Just look at Phoebe Bridgers, who's dark and mysterious sense of style is coveted for more than being Paul Mescals girlfriend.

The new range of bodycon pieces has been released and is available in large quantities now via yeezygap.com.

In a recent Instagram post, Hailey shared some shots of her enviable tour wardrobe, and no, skin-tight all black ensembles were nowhere in sight.

While joining her husband on his world tour, Hailey continued her signature classic, sporty, feminine and sexy sartorial reign, highlighting that the modern interpretation of the 'rockstar girlfriend' is one that's equally supportive but also independent and non-conformist.

It also showcases that even dating habits can also fall victim to the cyclical nature of the trend cycle.

While the toxic 2000s may have promoted an athlete, actor or even an heir as the partner to idolize, it seems that the rockstar is once again reigning supreme.

The rockstar has even found its way into popular culture, with Sam Levinson and The Weeknd's new show The Idol glamorizing the lifestyle of a young pop-princess, portrayed by Lily Rose Depp living in Los Angeles.

So, if there's anything to be learnt from the 'rockstar girlfriend' aesthetic, it's that dressing like a partner is less of a uniformed method, and something that encourages freedom.
