The model; Bella Hadid is looking very fierce on the cover of ELLE UK July 2016 issue. I am loving this cover so much. The pose, denim shirt, light makeup and messy hair looks amazing. I knew little or nothing about Bella Hadid, never heard of her until this cover, so I was very curious to read more about her. I guessed she was related to the famous Gigi Hadid, they are actually sisters, but that is all I knew, her face didn’t ring a bell.
However, after reading her interview with ELLE, I know quite a bit about her now. Her full name is Isabella “Bella” Khair Hadid. She is an American fashion model, signed to IMG Models. She was born in California in 1996 to Yolanda Hadid and Mohamed Hadid. She has a fantastic modelling career, and has recently appeared on the campaigns of Balmain x H&M, Marc Jacobs, and Topshop. Her mother Yolanda is actually a ‘Real Housewife’ on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and that is how the family got into the limelight.
When asked how she copes in the demanding world of modelling:
My mom always taught me to think about something happy when I’m working, because it kind of shows through your face. I used to think about my horses. But now I think about other things. I wonder what was going through her head during the shot when she was stand- ing outside in the freezing rain, wearing just a high-cut red swimsuit and leather jacket? Well, that’s more of an aggressive look. It depends on what the vibe is. I was probably thinking, “Get me the hell out of this bathing suit.’”
I love her sense of humour. A woman with a good sense of humour can survive anything. What are your thoughts on Bella Hadid? Have you heard of her?
