How to become a model, according to Bella Hadid

At this point, Bella Hadid is one of the most well-known models in the world. From Vogue covers to major campaigns, runway shows and everything in between, it’s almost like she was born on the catwalk. But of course, that isn’t the case because that would be, well… really strange and we would have a lot of questions. Anyway, having been in the business for several years working her way up, Bella has figured out a trick or two for making it as a model and luckily for all of us, she’s willing to share it with the world.
After hitting the runway for Brandon Maxwell‘s stunning Texas-themed runway extravaganza with Kia, Bella shared her secret to success in modeling and TBH, it’s pretty simple. “100% it would be just to be yourself and to not try to be anybody else,” she tells Teen Vogue after the show. “And it sounds so cliché, but you see girl backstage sometimes that finally, now, after three years of being in the business, can be themselves and show who they really are, and it’s the best part about them. Sometimes people try to get put into a box, and there are no boxes here.” She also mentioned that perfection isn’t the key to success in this industry, it’s how you treat people. She says it doesn’t matter “if your walk is a little wobbly,” and she advises that it’s “about the relationships you make, about the kindness that you spread, and obviously working really hard you have to have a great mindset to be in this business.”

Though becoming a model can seem like an impossible career to break into Bella’s advice is to jump right in, be yourself and go for it. She does, however, want aspiring models to know that it’s hard work and you have to be willing to do it. “If anybody wants to try modeling, and if that’s their passion than do it 100%. There’s room for everybody in the business to succeed and I think that people try to pick and choose, but there’s enough room for everybody if you work hard enough, for sure.”

So you heard it straight from one of the high-earning models in the world: work hard, play nice, and never forget who you are!

Bella Hadid crashes high school senior prom in New York and poses with students on party bus

A group of students from Oceanside High in New York got a surprise guest at their senior prom this week. Bella Hadid took some time out of her busy schedule to crash the festivities as some of the students celebrated their prom on a party bus. In snaps shared to social media on Monday the model is pictured posing with the teens who are all sporting their glitzy formal wear.

The LA native apparently was on her way to the airport to catch a flight to Germany when she stumbled upon the busload of teens probably getting ready to sing along to “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” by Green Day in a school gymnasium.

BELLA HADID IS ON MY SCHOOLS PROM BUS I CANT STOP LAUGHING,’ wrote a user named Jackie. ‘For the people that don’t believe me bella hadid is on some of my friends party bus for prom‘ she added alongside photos of Bella mingling with the prom-goers.  ‘Why is Bella hadid in my town?and at prom?‘ came a tweet from another student.

During the day the catwalk beauty was seen on a photo shoot in Long Beach, New York which is near where Oceanside High is situated.

Bella Hadid talks about plastic surgery, depression and more for InStyle

Bella Hadid may look as if she’s got nothing to worry about, but the Instagram-loving supermodel, who is a face of Dior Beauty (she’s fronting the brand’s Backstage collection, out in July), has certainly had plenty of moments of self-doubt.

People think I’m very confident, but I really had to learn how to be,” says Hadid, who admits to having felt awkward about her “big hips” and “weird face” when she was younger. Now, at 21, not only has she learned to embrace her distinctive features but she also wants to offer hugs to the detractors who leave negative comments on her social media feeds. “People think I got all this surgery or did this or that. And you know what? We can do a scan of my face, darling. I’m scared of putting fillers into my lips. I wouldn’t want to mess up my face.

Here, Hadid talks about her beauty routine, that time she dyed her hair rainbow, and the one treatment she’d never try.

Did anyone teach you about beauty when you were growing up? I learned about beauty from my mom, though mostly in terms of skin care. She’s always said that good skin is so much more important than the stuff you put on top of it. My dad, meanwhile, never wanted us to wear makeup, so we didn’t. I rode horses, and my sister [fellow supermodel Gigi] played volleyball. In my family, it wasn’t about how you looked; it was about how you competed.

Did you consider yourself a tomboy? I was definitely more tomboy than girlie, but I had a girlie side too. I would wear Dr. Martens with my little plaid skirts and tights to school. I remember giving one of my friends a makeover because she was such a tomboy, even more than me. I would bring her clothes in the sixth grade, and that’s how we became best friends. I learned you can change people’s lives at school [laughs]! That’s where I found my love for fashion.

Did you have to overcome certain feelings of inadequacy as a teen?Yes. I had a small waist and big hips and was kind of chubby. I love them now, but I was always self-conscious of my hips—whereas my sister had a six-pack and was very athletic. And I thought I had such a weird face. I remember very distinctly getting bullied because of my features.

How do you handle it now when people make comments or say negative things? It’s taken me a long time to learn not to listen. I turn my phone off and remember that the people around me are the only ones whose opinions I really care about. Why would I read those comments? They are usually coming more for my character than for my face, which is more hurtful.

Do you ever respond? I don’t. I’ve learned that people are going to hate you and there’s nothing you can do about it except be yourself and love yourself. But I feel people’s energy very intensely. Often I think, “I just want to meet you and tell you I’m not a bad person. You don’t have to be mean to me.”

Right, because it’s about them, not you. I want to write them, “If you’re going through something, I want to be there for you.” There’s obviously something deeper going on. I know it’s not about me personally. We all have our stuff to overcome, and that’s what I want to preach to the kids these days. I went through a serious depression last year, and I think it stemmed from when I was younger and [being bullied by] the kids in school. And now, I guess I shouldn’t be as self-conscious—people tell me that every day—but it’s a personal thing. We all go through it because we’re human.
