Bella Hadid's New Cover Is So Simple and So Pretty
It’s par for the course for models to completely transform their looks, and Bella Hadid is especially impressive at the task. Take for instance her ’80s pinup impression for Teen Vogue or her gothic, bleach-blond look for Paper. But for her latest cover, she’s transformed once again by toning it way down and going bare, simple, and very natural. The results are quite stunning.
Hadid covers Porter Magazine’s summer issue wearing a white Sonia Rykiel jacket and very little else. Her hair is swept up, makeup is undetectable, and there’s not a single accessory in sight. But that’s just the start of Hadid’s 23-page spread, which also features playful swimwear looks.
Along with the photos, the Porter feature includes a candid and very personal interview with the 20-year-old. She reveals some of the challenges of her very high-profile life: “It gets really overwhelming. You feel really overexposed and you don’t want to see anybody.” Plus, Hadid, who walked in the immigration march in New York with her sister Gigi, also speaks more about why she feels impassioned to become politically active. “My dad was a refugee when he first came to America, so it’s actually very close to home for my sister and brother and me,” she tells Porter. “He was always religious, and he always prayed with us. I am proud to be a Muslim.”
