Bella Hadid top model
Between the Tommy Hilfiger event in Los Angeles and the fashion week podiums in New York, Bella Hadid, just 20 years old, is showing eleven times in a week. The young woman of Palestinian origin is the top model of the moment!
Queen of ready-to-wear, the 1.75 m model is also in high demand in fashion show’s, in January, for Chanel, Givenchy and Alexandre Vauthier and many others.
Blue-green eyes, prominent cheekbones, brown hair, copper-colored skin, Isabella Khair Hadid, with her full name, is also on a multitude of advertising campaigns like DKNY, Moschino, Fendi, Zadig & Voltaire and The watchmaker Tag Heuer.
With her sister Gigi, who has 30 million subscribers on Instagram and has opened the way for her, but also Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid is part of this new generation of models whose presence on the networks multiplies the notoriety. His brief romance with Canadian singer The Weeknd, with his real name Abel Tesfaye, thus unleashed the passions. Some brands « want to take advantage of their subscribers (on social networks) to achieve their commercial goals, » said Jorge Ramos, director for the agency League International Model Management.
Bella Hadid turned to modeling only at the age of 18, a fairly advanced age in the community and considering that her sister had shown her the way. A good-looking rider, she owes her complexion to her father, Mohamed Hadid, a real estate developer who became a millionaire and the embodiment of the American dream. Palestinian born in Nazareth, he joined the United States after the creation of the State of Israel, after a passage through Syria.
Her sister has already declared herself « proud » of being « half Palestinian ». His brother, Anwar, has just started in modeling and is the flag bearer of the last campaign Zadig & Voltaire, next to Bella. As for her mother, Yolanda Hadid, a former model of Dutch origin and separated from her husband since 2000, was one of the protagonists of the reality show « The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ».
Beyond the pace, « a model becomes the one that everybody wants because it has a personality, a confidence in it and a charisma », which is the case of Bella Hadid, observes Jorge Ramos. « Model have pretty faces, that’s a prerequisite, » he said. « So you have to have a personality that stands out from the rest. » « She breathes something else, » says Sophie Roche Conti, for whom the young woman is the embodiment of « cool », « a bit nonchalant, very free spirit » but also « funny ». She assures that despite the number of collaborations that she accepts, « she is enthusiastic », « cool » and « not embittered ».
