Bella Hadid has been enjoying the holiday season, and revealed on Instagram that she’d been having “a very Dutch Christmas.”
As well as spending some much-needed downtime with her family, the Victoria’s Secret model also shared a seriously revealing Instagram vid, in which her midriff was fully on display.
Wearing a tight crop top with long sleeves, Hadid showed off her amazing physique in the mirror, and wrote, “sleepy girl , enjoying it.”
She also shared the sweetest family snap taken with sister Gigi Hadid, brother Anwar, and mom Yolanda. In a subsequent photo she revealed that it had been “another wild and crazy Xmas.”
2019 has been another busy year for Bella, who recently opened up to WWD about some of her positive and negative modelling experiences. The prolific model explained, “Rihanna’s amazing. For me, that was the first time on a runway that I felt really sexy. Because when I first did Fenty, I was doing other lingerie shows and I never felt powerful on a runway, like, in my underwear.”
She continued, “I like being another character. I think at this point I don’t necessarily love being myself sometimes… Sometimes on the runway you get either nervous or you forget how your legs move.”
An overture to the blazing heat of Miami’s Art Basel, the effervescence of Dior Men’s Pre-Fall 2020 Show certainly left spectators in awe of Kim Jones’ exceptional artistry.

At New York Fashion Week last September, Kith’s theatrical fashion show entitled “Kith Park” debuted an upcoming collaboration with Versace. The announcement marked the streetwear mega-retailer’s first-ever, large-scale collaboration with a luxury fashion house, and the partnership quickly garnered plenty of online buzz.
Designed by Kith, the collection boasts more than 100 styles across men’s and women’s apparel, footwear and accessories, which were fabricated and produced entirely in Italy by the Versace team. Plus, the Italian house’s iconic logo has been redesigned for the first time ever, featuring Kith’s signature box logo across the eyes of Versace’s Medusa.
On Friday, Feb. 15, the collection will finally hit all Kith stores, its website and select Versace flagship locations across the globe. To coincide with its release, the brands have joined forces yet again for a special campaign starring Versace house muse (and expert sneaker shopper) Bella Hadid, who opened the collaboration’s portion of “Kith Park” last season.
As seen on Hadid, Kith x Versace is filled with a mix of the logomania and Greek-meets-Baroque motifs, covering puffers, track suits, silk blouses, biker shorts and more. The two brands also worked on a ’90s-era sneaker together, bringing back Versace’s Amico Trainer from its archives and updated with a new silhouette and design variations. For women, the collection also offers a leather stiletto boot and mule with gold co-branded hardware.
When we met Bella Hadid last week, she had flown in from a whirlwind weekend in Dubai, and was flying off to Tokyo in 24 hours. A Tag Heuer party planned in her honour was 3 hours away, yet here she was, smiling, chipper and fresh as a daisy. Scores of fans congregated outside the Swiss watchmaker’s boutique in The Gardens Mall, hoping to catch another glimpse of the model, dressed in an all-silver ensemble and snake motif gogo boots. It was her first visit in Malaysia, and we had 5 precious minutes to catch up to her. Within that timespan, we discovered there’s more to Bella than meets the eye, that no amount of social media impressions can capture.
What are the fun privileges you enjoy most as the face of Tag Heuer?
“It’s probably travelling to great place like Kuala Lumpur. We went to the F1 Grand Prix race awhile ago in Monaco, and it was a great experience to be with the entire Tag Heuer team. To meet everybody, to really get to know the brand and the watches. I might be able to go to Switzerland to see how they’re made and that’s a big learning experience. With modelling, you go in and out of shoots, you see your pictures, and that’s it. With Tag Heuer I get to learn and experience things and it’s such a blessing to be able do so.”
What are the characteristics you share with the brand, as an individual?
“As a woman – I don’t know if you would say this about me – when I feel strong I feel like a part of Tag Heuer. I don’t feel strong all the time, but for sure. that’s our similarity. To me, Tag Heuer is super classic and I hope to be like that in the future. Tag Heuer has been around a long time, so I hope I will stay classic too.”
Let’s talk routines: are you more of a morning or night person?
“I’m a big, big night person. I just don’t like to wake up in the morning but once I’m up, I can go and I think a lot. I don’t like to go out as much as before; I like to be at home in bed at night.”
Your life is super busy. What do you wish you had more time for?
“More time for my friends and family. I try to give them as much time as I can when I’m home. Usually when I’m home, my girlfriends meet me at my house or come to the airport because when I’m home it’s to repack then leave. I have to make as much time as I can for my sister and best friends, make sure I see my mum and brother to remind them I love them, because when I’m gone, it’s for awhile.”
Can you share a favourite memory?
“This is my favourite memory! Probably just riding my horses when I was younger. Now we have a farm so we have our horses there. I’m just excited about continuing to make memories.”
Lastly, what advice would you give your 16-year-old self?
“It’s going to get better. Stay confident in who you are, don’t let people tell you what you are supposed to be and just to remember, to come back to your roots constantly and be yourself.”
