BACKSTAGE at the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show while three hair stylists fastened extensions into her glossy brown crop, Miss Vogue caught up with Bella Hadid to ask her how being a fully-fledged street-style pin-up feels, and where she looks to for wardrobe inspiration.
“I like to keep my style true to myself, but I look to magazines like British Vogue all the time. Not just modern issues, but vintage ones too,” she explained. “Of course, I like modern style, but more so things that are back in the day to keep things cool.”
“I’ve collected vintage pieces for the last eight years from all over the world, and I usually pair them with with new items,” the catwalk star continued. “To be able to put new and old things together, and designer pieces with completely random pieces, is a beautiful thing for me.”
How does the 21-year-old get dressed in the morning? “Sometimes I put something on and think this is the weirdest piece ever, but I love it and sometimes I don’t care what people think,” she said, before adding: “Sometimes I have a major piece that I want to wear that day and I’ll put my look together around that, but for work I might just throw on a big sweater and jeans. It really just depends on the day and if I’m in the mood to wear a ‘look’”.
On sharing clothes with Gigi, she laughed: “We’re sisters, so like everyone we share clothes. Growing up we used to share clothes a lot but now she gets really angry at me if I don’t bring things back. Now we have an agreement that I have to return things and she has to return things to keep borrowing from each other.”
