Bella Hadid's Style Evolution: From Sexy Grunge to Quirky Cool

Ciao, Bella.

As one of fashion’s most recognizable faces in fashion, Bella Hadid‘s sense of style has truly evolved throughout her short yet illustrious career.

With iconic supermodel Yolanda Hadid as her mother and of course fellow beauty Gigi as her sister, Bella has had the distinct privilege of growing up in a home where names like Versace and Chanel were commonplace. Despite her fashionable upbringing, the brunette has proven to be a style chameleon as her aesthetic has gotten decidedly quirkier and more bold over the years — and we love her for it. In a candid interview with the WSJ Magazine, Bella famously shut down her haters, saying, “In the last year, it was really important for me to learn that even if people talk about my style or if they like it or if they don’t, it doesn’t matter because it’s my style. When I leave the house in the morning, what I think about is: Does this make me happy? Do I feel good in this and do I feel comfortable?”

Like many young women, Bella proudly prioritizes feeling confident in what she’s wearing over adhering to trends and dressing how others may expect a supermodel to dress. Over the years, the Palestinian-Dutch beauty has paired cropped tops with parachute pants, piled on the colorful knits and even embraced the shaved eyebrow trend, demonstrating her sincere love for her industry, never shying away from experimenting with fashion. The It-girl is all over Pinterest boards precisely because of her carefree and unique approach to clothing.
