At the end of 2022, the semi-Dutch top model Bella Hadid, who is 26 years old, will almost certainly have to compress herself. Within a span of only two weeks, she was awarded a total of four major prizes, including the title of “largest model of the year,” which was determined by the votes of hundreds of industry professionals. The shadow cast by Gigi’s sister has finally been completely extinguished.
I was always the uglier of the two sisters. I was not as chill as Gigi, nor did I have the same easygoing attitude. In the spring 2017 issue of Vogue, Bella Hadid detailed the various perspectives she frequently encounters on her appearance. “Unfortunately, when somebody say certain things to you very frequently, you are actually going to believe them,” said the man in the video.
The assertions lend an air of significance to the most significant year of Bella’s professional life. It would be something remarkable for everyone if the main character, who is currently in the fashion moment of 2022 by appearing topless on the catwalk and having your live outfit sprayed with paint, were to emerge. But this is especially true if you have always had the impression that you do not belong in the business world.
,,I often ask myself: I have an unbelievable number of fears, anxiety, depression, difficulties with my self-image, troubles with food, I hate to be touched, and I am deeply terrified of social situations… what did I think when I took this course? ” said Bella.
She felt the piercing eyes of those who believe that she is riding on Gigi’s success or who say that her models are the result of “cosmetic witchcraft,” which is how Vogue described it. She also felt the piercing eyes of people who believe that she is piggybacking on Gigi’s success. On the other hand, she struck a bargain with it.
I have worked hard over the years to improve my acting skills. I put on a brave face or a smiling face, depending on the situation. I never lost the feeling that I needed to demonstrate my worth. People are free to say whatever they want about my appearance, my manner of speech, and my actions. But in the seven years that have passed, I have never been late, and I have never missed or cancelled an assignment. Nobody will be able to claim that I don’t put in a lot of effort.
This year, she continued to do the same thing, appearing in advertising campaigns for a significant number of well-known brands and covering the most prominent magazines. It began in February when she posed alongside her sister Gigi for a campaign for the Italian brand Versace. The campaign, which made news due to the fact that the two stood naked with only a bag covering their crotches, was for the Italian company. However, the performance of these media chips is inadequate.
The more than 400 influential individuals from the fashion industry who serve as judges for the Model of the Year competition on Models.com say that Bella characterised the fashion year 2022 by taking only the most prestigious assignments, that she was much sought after, and that she was visible everywhere. After being crowned the Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards earlier this month, readers from the same site also earned her the audience award. This comes after she was also honoured with the title of Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. Gigi already received that final accolade, as well as the award bestowed by the general people. But Bella stands out.
She was awarded the Models.com public prize for “social mover” for the second year in a row, which recognises the model who has used the website’s platform to contribute the most to making the world a better place. This year, Bella, the daughter of a former model in the Netherlands named Yolanda van den Herik and a real estate billionaire in Palestine named Mohamed Hadid, did not merely share photographs with the 56.7 million people who follow her on Instagram. She also shown once more that she is an activist, particularly with issues pertaining to the rights of women, the Palestinian people, and Islamic culture.
This year, Gigi was also competing for the title of Model of the Year, however she was ultimately unsuccessful. It is not a competition between the sisters, but it does illustrate that the insecure woman who became a model against her will and without appreciation and who also heard so many negative remarks that she started to believe them is no longer referred to as ” the sister of.” Bella was only able to come up with one thing to say in response to being given the award: “It humbles me.”
