Backstage with Bella Hadid at Misha Collection.
In case you missed it, Ms Hadid caused minor mayhem during her recent 48-hour trip to Australia. BAZAAR’S cover star flew in for a runway exclusive in Misha Collection’s debut standalone show at Mercedes-benz Fashion Week Australia (styled by BAZAAR senior fashion editor Karla Clarke), prompting seasoned journos and the fashion-adoring public alike to queue for hours to catch a glimpse of Gigi’s little sister.the down-low from our time with her? She’s every bit as beautiful in real life, and twice as likeable. “Bella was great to work with,” Clarke says. “She’s super normal and genuine, with a great sense of humour and a strong work ethic.” Photographer Georges Antoni echoes Clarke’s sentiments: “Not only can this girl work the camera, but her approach to everyone she encounters is incredibly respectful and refreshing for this industry. What a lovely human being — who happens to look incredible on film.” – Alison Izzo
