Following the footsteps of her older sister Gigi Hadid, 22, the 21-year-old Bella Hadid, managed to get herself in the spotlight – becoming one of the top models in the fashion business, and one of the designers’ most demanded models.The stunning dark-haired beauty who’s signed to IMG Models since 2014, has won a number of accolades for her work, including GQ’s Model of the Year in 2016. Nearly overshadowing her sister’s success, she was named as beauty ambassador of Dior Beauty in 2016, and in February 2017 she signed two new contracts with Bulgari and TAG Heuer.
There is absolutely no doubt this bombshell was destined to walk the catwalk. Besides having a supermodel sister, she also has an iconic model mother, Yolanda Foster, 53. However, it has been insinuated that Hadid has gone under the knife in order to keep her place on the runway.
The speculations arose immediately after Star magazine reported in March that Hadid got her perfect features with the help of her father, Mohamed Hadid’s credit card.
“Bella has always been hugely insecure,” a friend told the publication. “But it really ramped up when Gigi started modeling.”
The magazine suggested she went to see a doctor: “She really went to town with her dad’s credit card and is practically unrecognizable.”
Among those who believe the supermodel has had a cosmetic surgery makeover, is Dr. Matthew Schulman, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in New York.
“Bella’s face looks much different than it did two years ago,” he told Radar Online. “Her face [used to have] a round appearance and now appears more chiseled. This may be due to some normal maturing and also some weight loss. However, she has likely had some surgical help.”
The doctor, who has not treated Hadid, made a further claim: “her nose is more refined [now], suggesting a rhinoplasty.”
“Her jawline is more defined and her cheeks are less full. This can be achieved with buccal fat pad reduction, or removal of some fat from the cheeks. Her chin is more prominent and may be the result of a chin implant as well,” he revealed, adding that Bella may have gotten fillers like pal Kylie Jenner. “Bella’s cheekbones are also higher and more defined. This is often achieved using injectable filler like Juvederm or Radiesse. She has also likely had some plumping of her lips with filler like Juvederm or Restylane.”
According to Dr. Anthony Youn, one of the leading anti-aging experts in the USA operating out of Troy, Michigan, she may have also had injections to alter her appearance.
“It appears that she’s had a nose job (rhinoplasty) which has thinned her nose, making it look a bit more elegant,” Youn explained. “Her eyebrows are more arched and slightly lifted, which can often occur with well-performed injections of Botox.”
On the other hand, Bella opened up about the pressure she constantly feels as a result of her career. “It’s really tough,” she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, “You’re going to get scrutinized for anything that you do. So if you’re skinny and have a sick body and you don’t have a butt, people are going to say, ‘Why do you have no butt?’ And then you go and get a fake butt and they get mad at you because you have a fake butt. And then you don’t have boobs, and it’s just a whole circulating circle.”
