There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it — Bella Hadid is without question, one of the world’s top models.
Along with sister Gigi, she’s always one to watch when fashion week rolls around.
She’s become famous for her
head-turning street style and ever-stunning red carpet looks, but the trendsetter also knows how to turn a runway look into a moment. (Remember that Coperni spray-on dress that went viral?!)
No matter the show, or what she’s modeling, Hadid always seems to hit that catwalk as if Cheetah Girls’
“Strut” is playing in her head (IYKYK). From New York to London to Paris, all of the most notable and influential luxury brands have tapped her to debut their designs. This includes iconic fashion houses like Vivienne Westwood, Fendi, and Givenchy, as well as buzzy brands founded in the 2010s like Off-White, Coperni, and Khaite.
Whether the model is decked out in luxe couture or a fierce ready-to-wear ‘fit, she wears the clothes,
not the other way around. The supermodel holds her own on the runway, making it her personal stage, walking it with total confidence.
Hadid has taken well-publicized spills in the past, she shows no signs of intimidation when she enters the room. She walks with a certain boldness — with undeniable nerve and spunk.
With fashion month well underway, I’ve rounded up some of the most memorable runway looks from Bella Hadid's career thus far. So, step into my fashion time machine and check out her best fashion week moments.
