Bella Hadid on travel, beauty and what makes her happy

Getting off a plane and heading straight to a party looking rested and energised is more difficult than it sounds. But if there’s anyone who knows how to do it – because extreme practise, of course, makes perfect – it’s Bella Hadid.

I travel a lot and I often work directly after landing. I use my mom’s advice, keeping my skin as good as it can be. So on a plane I wash my face as soon as I get on, I have all my serums and my night cream. And then I fall asleep and do it again when I wake up,” she told us, in London for a party to launch the new Dior Backstage collection, which was debuted at the Dior Cruise show last week. “So by the time I get off the plane my face is well rested and moisturised. And I always have a concealer with me, especially when I’m super-tired to get those dark eye bags away.”

Hadid has experienced something of a packed summer so far, following trips to Cannes, Paris, New York and Monaco in the last month, as well as appearances on the Fashion For Relief runway and the Met Gala red carpet among them. Not events you can turn up in an old dress and some hastily-applied make-up for, then. And whilst the 21-year-old takes care never to complain – her manners are impeccable and she’s endlessly gracious – she is clear about the importance of taking care of herself when travelling and working as much as she does.

I always keep my essential oils with me, and my crystals. I make sure I have a good energy on the plane because sometimes I panic if I fly too much. I’m alone most of the time so I need to make sure I have all my homey things with me. I make the plane my home,” she says. “I have all my crystals on the farm at home and we make sure they’re all charged before I travel. My mom sticks little ones around my suitcase when I leave which is really sweet. One of my make-up artists in Korea knows how tired I get and she gave me this box of liquid ginseng in little packets. It tastes horrible but it gives you this burst of energy. I’ve kind of veered away from coffee recently so I’m just trying to find the most holistic ways I can sustain my energy throughout the day. But most of the time, that energy comes from deep down. I have to push myself really hard when I’m in the zone!”

Hadid remains incredibly close to her family, including sister Gigi, and peppers the conversation with references to her loved ones. In fact, it’s her mother – who she describes as “the most selfless person in the world” – who she credits with her fastidious skincare regime.

My first memories of beauty are from my mom, talking about keeping your skin amazing first, rather than about make-up. I rode horses my whole life so I wasn’t one to wear a lot of it,” she admits. “But I do remember going into my mom’s make-up cabinets when I was younger and finding the darkest eyeliner I could possible find and putting it on after I left for school, and then taking it off before I got home again. I was a very rebellious child with my make-up – I think because my parents didn’t really like it. But I would find little things that made me feel more like myself.

Now, of course, with a Dior beauty contract to her name, Hadid has plenty of room for experimentation when it comes to beauty – as well as thousands of products to play with.

Bella hadid has been confirmed for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show

When the ecstatic Instagram posts started rolling in earlier this week from models celebrating the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show casting announcements, a couple models were notably absent from the social media festivities. Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid were not among the women spotted entering and leaving the Manhattan offices where castings were held, leading many to assume they were not on this year’s lineup. But, as she announced in an Instagram post Saturday night, Bella Hadid, at least, is officially walking in the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The first hint appeared on her Instagram stories the previous day—Hadid, swathed in one of the lingerie brand’s trademark hot pink silk robes, mugged for the camera in a short video. Then, on Saturday, she arrived at the Victoria’s Secret casting offices for a fitting—after all the other models already had their go—wearing light-washed jeans, a white bustier and white button down, and white stilettos. Finally, that same evening, she posted another image of herself wearing a simple black bra with a slate-grey silk robe falling from her shoulders. In the caption, she announced the news in the same jubilant manner as her peers like Devon Windsor, Grace Elizabeth, Maria Borges, and others: “I feel so crazy humbled to get the opportunity to be a part of this show again…Walking into the offices this year I felt so happy, healthy, and honored,” she wrote. “I can’t wait for another incredible experience!!! Congrats to all of the beautiful ladies I will be walking beside.” The whole thing, apparently, took less than a day—apparently a foregone conclusion for the woman who had made the biggest news of the previous year’s show.

Last year, Hadid made her Victoria’s Secret debut, walking the same runway as her elder sister—and her ex-boyfriend, The Weeknd, who performed during the show. It was, in essence, the ultimate breakup fantasy: Hadid powered down the runway in luxurious lingerie while her ex boyfriend looked on. In one look, she wore a flinty grey corset and lace bra, a silk chiffon robe billowing behind her; in a second, she wore a blue, crystal-embellished long-sleeved top and underwear with feather details. All this is to say, Hadid’s second outing on the Victoria’s Secret runway—reportedly in Shanghai this year, in lieu of last year’s Paris—has a lot to live up to.

It’s good to know that, while Hadid is re-devoting herself to equestrianism and putting in substantial hours as the new face of Bulgari, she’s still making time for one of the glitziest fashion events of the year. And Hadid’s tardiness serves to show there’s still time for Gigi and Kendall to join in on the occasion, too.

Bella Hadid Lands Her First Fendi Campaign

If you were proud of yourself for hitting the gym yesterday, Bella Hadid is here to one-up your New Year’s resolution. The model rang in 2017 by landing her first Fendi campaign, shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld, of course.

The younger Hadid sister debuted the new ad on Instagram, writing, “what a dream come true to start off the new year!”

Featuring a muted color palette and romantic florals, the Spring 2017 ad is quite a contrast from Fendi’s previous campaign starring Kendall Jenner in bold colors and colorful furs.

After having an incredible year as one of 2016’s most in-demand models and closing Fendi’s 90th anniversary couture show last July, Hadid landing her first campaign for the fashion house hardly comes as a surprise. Looks like she has no signs of slowing down in 2017.
