Bella Hadid’s new fragrance line launches today

Bella Hadid’s new fragrance line launches today — and here’s everything we know so far about her latest venture.

Supplements, skincare, haircare… what’s Bella Hadid up to these days? Well, we finally have some answers. Following months of speculation surrounding the Palestinian-American model’s newest business endeavours, it’s time for customers to get properly introduced to Orebella, her brand-new fragrance line. Described on its website as the “first intentional skin parfum,” the first drop of the collection — available from May 2nd — introduces three scents: Blooming Fire, Window2Soul, and Salted Muse.

The formulas go beyond the already-expected cruelty-free, clean, and vegan promises, offering alcohol-free and hydrating solutions, elevated with essential oils. It’s an innovative move, promising a long-lasting effect by infusing the scent with your skin while amplifying the wearer’s aura. For a step even closer to Bella’s wellness commitment, the brand also bans 1,300 ingredients from its formulas to guarantee strict cleanliness and safety, responsibly sourcing all materials. And the perfume’s packaging, of course, is the cherry on top — a precious gem-like addition to your beauty counter.

Bella Hadid wears ‘absolutely nothing’ on first magazine cover since yearlong modeling break

Bella Hadid is a cover girl once again.

The supermodel draped herself in nothing but a poster on the cover of Perfect magazine Tuesday, channeling a 1978 image of Blondie’s Debbie Harry.

Hadid, 27, sits on a chair in the first of four spring/summer 2024 cover shots — her first magazine since taking a break from the business amid her health battle — covering herself up with a white poster reading “Absolutely nothing. Nothing at all.”

While the catwalk star, who took a modeling hiatus to undergo treatment for Lyme disease last year, went bare on top, she didn’t totally stick to the poster’s message, wearing a tiny pair of black briefs.

Hadid accessorized with a pair of huge gold hoop earrings, wearing a heavy amount of bright pink blush with an otherwise barely-there makeup look.

According to the magazine, the shoot was “inspired by an image of Debbie Harry performing in 1978, wearing as a dress a poster she had torn from the wall outside the venue.”

While this marks Hadid’s return to magazine covers, she’s starred in other campaigns since her 2023 modeling break, during which she also broke up with her boyfriend of two years, Marc Kalman.

In August, the sober supermodel shared a behind-the-scenes TikTok from her first job since her time off, and she looked unrecognizable in September 2023 as she posed in an extraterrestrial-themed Marc Jacobs shoot.

While the star has made some low-key appearances, including at niece Khai Malik’s birthday party and out and about with new love interest Adan Banuelos, she’s stayed mostly out of the spotlight until now.

Fans will have to wait and see if 2024 brings Bella back to the runway.

Gigi and Bella Hadid face death threats for supporting Palestine

The Hadids have openly condemned the oppression of Palestinians by the state of Israel for some time, clashing with the state’s official social media accounts on more than one occasion. Amid the current escalation of violence in Gaza, things are no different. In fact, Israel’s social media tactics – including twisting statements made by Gigi Hadid – has now been credited with influencing reported death threats against the entire Hadid family.

At the weekend Gigi Hadid, who is half-Palestinian, shared an infographic to her Instagram Stories that urged followers not to conflate support for the Palestinian people with antisemitism or support for Hamas. “There is nothing Jewish about the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians,” reads the original post. “Condemning the Israeli government is not antisemitic and supporting Palestinians is not supporting Hamas.”

Shortly after, the official Instagram account for the state of Israel weighed in on the statement, posting a different version of the infographic, edited to say that “there is nothing valiant about Hamas’ massacre of Israelis”. “Condemning Hamas for what it is (ISIS) is not anti-Palestine,” the statement continues, “and supporting Israelis in their fight against barbaric terrorists is the right thing to do.”

The post also called out Gigi directly, saying: “Have you been sleeping the past week? Or are you just fine turning a blind eye to Jewish babies being butchered in their homes? Your silence has been very clear about where you stand. We see you.”

The Israeli government’s public response is typical of its tactics so far, which have often included latching onto celebrities or popular memes to spread its message and misinformation, as well as the use of dehumanising language that minimises the devastation of Gaza and the deaths of Palestinian people. It also overlooks the fact that Hadid has condemned the October 7 attacks on civilians by Hamas. “While I have hopes and dreams for Palestinians, none of them include the harm of a Jewish person,” she writes in a statement shared via Instagram on October 10. “The terrorising of innocent people is not in alignment with and does not do any good for the ‘Free Palestine’ movement.”

According to TMZ, Gigi Hadid has received a wave of death threats (alongside Bella, Anwar, and their parents) since speaking out against the Israeli government’s violence in Gaza. These have reportedly come via email, social media, and their personal phones, with their numbers leaked online over the last week. The content apparently includes graphic descriptions of their executions. Mohamed Hadid is said to be considering a report to the FBI, which has already recorded a spike in violence against both Jewish and Muslim Americans.

Following a familiar pattern, the surprise attacks by Hamas were quickly met with a disproportionate response from Israel’s Netanyahu government, which has continued over the course of the last week. Its airstrikes have killed thousands of Palestinians, reportedly targeting hospitals and ambulances, with almost half of Gaza’s population displaced from their homes. Critical resources, like water, food, and electricity, have also been blocked due to the Israeli government’s “complete siege” of the region.
