International supermodel, style icon, and most-loved millennial Bella Hadid is only 21 – can you believe it? It’s hard to fathom that someone with so much success, fame, and all round #blessedness could be so young. There’s really no denying that the (extremely long) list of achievements racked up by the youngest Hadid sister is nothing but admirable.
Bella first burst onto the modeling scene in 2014, when she signed to prestigious agency IMG. Little did she know that less than two years later, she’d be dominating her sector and taking home a Model of the Year award. Although no stranger to the public eye – her mother Yolanda is star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, whilst her sister Gigi signed to the same modeling agency a year earlier – it’s only the past 18 months that have seen her truly shine.
The model had her real high-fashion breakout moment in 2015, when the fall/winter edition of Fashion Month saw her walk for Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Missoni, Bottega Veneta, and Balmain to name a few. She has also built close relationships with several renowned designers, magazine editors, and makeup artists who have dubbed her the ultimate muse for 2017.
It’s because of such accomplishments that the supermodel has become the epitome of modern-day glamour, showcasing that red-carpet wow factor better than anyone else. Her sultry smile and cool-girl style is the perfect pairing for the floor-sweeping gowns of Dior and Giambattista Valli, providing the rest of us with endless eveningwear inspiration. In honor of Bella’s 21st birthday, today, Savoir Flair peruses her Instagram account to recall 21 times that she unequivocally ruled the red carpet.
