The true tell of a model is her ability to transform, contort, and – of course – inspire. Ever since her first runway in 2015, Bella Hadid has us convinced that there’s really nothing she can’t wear. She’s got legs made for the highest of thigh-high boots, come-hither-me eyes that captivate every photographer, and enough confidence to wear even the riskiest of bodysuits.
Like a true fashionable chameleon, the model is as comfortable in a pair of Victoria’s Secret Angel wings as she is in vintage Vivienne Westwood – is there anything she can’t make her own? Today, as Hadid blows out 22 candles, we’re celebrating some of her greatest hits.
She can rock monochrome like a pro. The contrast of this corporate shade of gray against her yellow sunglasses proves it’s not always “all work and no play” with Bella.
On the Maison Margiela runway? She’s there, with face jewelry, bold lips, and bleached locks transforming her into a fashionista of the future.
Head-to-toe in Dior – just another day for this model. As for adding an element of cool? The season’s “It” sneakers, of course.
For the 2017 Met Gala, Bella was paired with designer Alexander Wang, who didn’t shy away from showing off the model’s killer physique. Even in a bodysuit this fitted, she remained calm, cool, and collected.
Showcasing her ability to transform, Bella slayed the Fendi Spring/Summer 2019 runway in biker shorts and an oversized button-up – and it looked effortless to us.
Baring it all in a risqué, scarlet dress by Alexandre Vauthier at the 2016 Cannes film festival, this might just be her most iconic look to date.
Pairing vintage Vivienne Westwood like it’s straight off the runway (though it’s from 1991 and older than she is!) with the teensy shades of today, she serves up plenty of attitude to pull it all together.
Exuding girl-next-door vibes while still looking like a supermodel, Bella can make even a car-print polo look chic.
Vision in White
This all-white Max Mara ensemble is not for the clumsy. Bella accented the utilitarian suit with bold accessories and a statement bag, giving us major outfit envy and even more styling inspiration.
Combining power and femininity in this pink Off-White blazer dress alongside designer Virgil Abloh, Bella is all business. La vie en rose indeed!
