Bella Hadid very much freed the nipple as she walked the Paris Fashion Week runway recently. The 23-year-old supermodel and sister to Gigi Hadid walked for designer Vivienne Westwood’s AW20 show in an unusual gown that made headlines for coming accessorized by a knife – Bella further proved a headline-maker by having been given the honor of closing the redheaded designer’s show.
Vivienne Westwood had pulled out all the stops with this look. Bella’s dress had a bridal feel, it was completely sheer, and it was seeing the model bravely expose her chest.
Bella shared both photos and videos of her runway moment to her Instagram. The beauty was seen strutting her stuff in a sheer, lace-fronted white dress that fell to the floor, with more opaque and embossed details further down offsetting the see-through finish up top. With a cinched waist, puff sleeves, and a statement belt, this gown was bound to be a headline-maker, with Bella also seen walking with a knife and sheath.
Bella also wore her long hair worn down and parted down the middle. Her pale-effect makeup accentuated her stunning facial features.
Bella took to her caption to mark the moment – and mention the dress.
“a @viviennewestwood @ndreaskronthaler bride ? thank you for this moment, my forever respect and love to the both of you radical human beings…I get so excited every season to watch you work … dagger instead of flowers….my kind of wedding dress?,” she wrote.
The update appeared a giant hit, bringing in over 684,000 likes. Celebrity likes were left by Billie Eilish, Gabrielle Union, and Ashley Graham, plus Vanessa Hudgens and sister Gigi.
Bella recently opened up about her career, speaking to LOVE magazine for its January 2020 cover. The feature saw the star admit that she felt she’d entered the industry too young.
“In my opinion I started modelling way too young. I was still growing and my confidence wasn’t fully matured. I didn’t love myself, or didn’t necessarily think I was worthy of all of the recognition I was getting,” Bella said, adding:
“When I was younger, I would see photos of myself that I hated and would be mortified that people wanted to work with me, because I was so self-conscious.”
Bella and Gigi now come as modeling’s biggest power duo. The sisters have walked for Victoria’s Secret together, but social media still sees Gigi as the front-runner on the popularity front – the 24-year-old has 52 million Instagram followers compared to Bella’s 29 million.
Nonetheless, Bella is fast-rising. The model is the face of French giant Dior Beauty, plus Tag Heuer watches. Fashion Week this year has also seen Bella walk for Fendi, Moschino, Versace, plus Boss and Missoni. She is also known for her high-proifle, on-off relationship with rapper The Weeknd.
