She added a pair of black and white Nike dunk sneakers and wore a black face mask over her nose and mouth.

The singer toted a pale pink compact suitcase that she rolled on wheels with an animal carrier set on top. 

Her sweatsuit featured a hoodie with a deep neckline and scrunched trimming at the sleeves and hem.

She flashed her flat stomach, revealing two bandaids crossed over each other on her abdomen.

Halle, who rose to fame performing as Chloe x Halle with her older sister, layered multiple necklaces ranging in length.

The pockets of her pants boasted large cargo-style pockets and she draped a black Tory Burch purse over her torso.

Her locked brown hair was pulled back into a neat bun and she showed off a metallic silver chrome manicure.

Bailey posed in the outfit in her most recent Instagram post, for which she turned off the comments.

She wrote in the caption to her 3.5 million fans: ‘sunkissed with @tiffanyandco #tiffanylock.’

Bailey admitted she felt ‘pressure’ to do the best possible job after taking on the role of Ariel in an upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

Her casting prompted outcry from some online critics, with them claiming she was unfit for the role because of her ethnicity.

In an interview with E! News she said: ‘I definitely think that because I love this movie so much, and I’ve treasured it since I was a little girl, I did put a bit of pressure on myself. 

‘Just because I want to deliver all of the feels that I saw when I was a little girl.’

Unfortunately, not everyone was keen on the beauty earning the starring role in the film.

One Twitter user wrote on the app, ‘Hey @disney, I actually think that @rachelzegler is a good choice for the role of Snow White because she looks just like her. But @hallebailey is #NotMyAriel.’

The West Side Story star actress lent her support to Halle, replying to the tweet with, ‘if you don’t support my girl Halle, who is the perfect ariel, you don’t support any of us.’

The upcoming movie, which also stars Jonah Hauer-King, Art Malik, Noma Dumezweni, Javier Bardem and Melissa McCarthy, will come out in spring 2023.

And the voice actress from the original Little Mermaid movie, Jodi Benson, showed her support as she reshared a cartoon image of two Ariels – one white and one Black.
