The super gave a fashionable teaser of what was to come by debuting long wavy locks on the front row - a far cry from her now-trademark bob.
Proving the new look is here to stay, she embarked upon her Miami-to-St-Barts expedition proudly sporting the aesthetic. Because when you've flocked to another city with your pals you may as well make a holiday of it, right?
Following the exclusive fashion show, she was joined by the rest of the world-famous Gen Z pack - we're talking Kendall Jenner and Joan Smalls - on what can only be described as a big girl's night out.
While her fellow model pals tried (and certainly succeeded) to bring millennial pink back for 2020, Hadid played on the '90s in an electric blue skirt suit.
That was just the first of many gram-worthy soirées to come of course, as the model squeezed a series of headline-worthy looks into her suitcase - designed to take her from front row to the beach in one outfit change.
First up: let's examine Hadid's take on yacht attire.
The model was photographed alongside Jenner taking in the city skyline from the sea in an effortlessly chic cable knit, super-chunky hairband and heaps-upon-heaps of gold jewellery.
If that wasn't enough to see in thousands of double-taps from fans across the globe, she continued the polaroid aesthetic over by the pool.
We're talking a waist-grazing two-piece, '90s bandana and the ultimate trophy accessory - a half-supped martini glass.
Next on the agenda: St Barts.
Further demonstrating how to pack for all manner of occasions, Hadid pulled off a slew of even more covetable looks in the Caribbean.
The model was in town to celebrate the opening of the brand new St Bart's Chrome Hearts store (she just launched a collaboration with the label) and made sure to represent the brand on the evening.
Barely-there halterneck? Check. Chic-but-most-probably-impractical shoulder bag? Check. Tinted sunnies? Erm, durr.
A sartorial love letter to the noughties, Hadid tackled all three trends in one fell swoop reminding us why she's one of this year's biggest style muses in the process.
Fast-forward 24 hours and she's back by the pool again. This time, in a flame-emblazoned cut-out swimsuit by Melissa Simone.
A walking-posing-strutting poster girl for Chrome Hearts, the suitably orange 'Hellz Bellz' sunglasses are available to shop in store.
Next up, we have the obligatory sunset snap.
Letting the already-social-media-perfect sky do the talking, Hadid kept things minimal in nothing but a seriously sheer halterneck and high-waisted jeans with dazzling pocket gems our teenage selves would sure approve of.
To round off the trip, she made sure to post yet another faux-candid bikini snap to the feed.
This time, the snap in question sees Hadid modelling a pair of the brand's baby blue sunglasses in keeping with her printed swimwear.
So that's micro sunnies, itsy-bitsy bikinis and old school bandanas on the shopping list so far.
