Celebrity Fashion: Beyoncé vs Bella Hadid in Givenchy

Who wore it better image

 

I featured Bella Hadid this month on the blog. She is the cover girl for Elle UK July issue, and that was my first time placing a name to the face. So I was happy to see her rocking the same outfit with Beyoncé. Both ladies are wearing the same black and silver-beaded Givenchy Fall 2015 Couture two-piece suit, but styled differently.

Beyoncé had hers on at the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, where she won the ‘Fashion Icon’ award. And she styled her suit with a black wide brim hat, a black ruffled high-neck lace top, black peep-toe platform pumps and finished the look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Bella Hadid wore her Givenchy suit a month ago at the De Grisogono Cannes party. She styled her suit with a sparkly top and a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Who do you think wore it better?

I am on the fence with both looks and I can’t seem to decide on which look I prefer. I think Beyoncé would have slayed this outfit if she didn’t have that massive hat on. I am not a fan of hat, I think it is a bit too much.

I love Bella’s look. I think she looks amazing, and those Giuseppe Zanotti sandals have my full attention. They finish up the look nicely. But I am not liking the choker necklace she has on. I think it ruined her look. I would have loved to see her neck bare because the top is so over the top and sparkly, it would have been perfect to have the attention on the top and the suit, but the choker necklace messes that up.

So I can’t decide. A Beyoncé without the hat would have been brilliant, and a Bella without the choker necklace would have been perfect!

Bella Hadid Covers ELLE UK July 2016 Issue

Bella_Hadid_COVER_MAIN_JULY1

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?
