No longer Gigi’s little sister, Bella Hadid is a fashion a force in her own right. The IMG model has become a star in her own right, walking the runway for Balmain, Tom Ford , Givenchy and Chanel, and as the new face of Dior Parfums, Hadid has scored one of fashion’s most lucrative contracts thanks to her sphinx-like beauty. The model will star in a 10-part ‘behind the scenes’ web series on Dior.com and across the brand and her social media channels (she commands an Instagram following of 5.4 million).
In addition to her work for the Parisian house, she closed Fendi’s Haute Fourrere show on the Trevi fountain, shot the cover of three international editions of Vogue, walked for Atelier Versace alongside supers Caroline Murphy and Karen Elson at Atelier Versace and is part Riccardo Tisci ’s Givenchy “Gang” and the #BalmainArmy.
The daughter of former model and interior designer Yolanda Hadid and real estate mogul Mohamed Hadid was raised in California before moving to New York to study photography at Parsons. An avid equestrian, Hadid dreamed of competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics, but an ongoing battle with Lyme disease put her dreams on hold.
In 2014 Hadid signed with IMG models and made her runway debut at New York Fashion Week that Autumn. Magazine covers for Vogue Australia, Elle, Teen Vogue and Seventeen followed, as well as campaigns for Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Topshop. Hadid made her debut as an actress in June 2016, starring Tyler Ford’s short film, “Private.”
