What does it feel like to be in the presence of Dior-modeland-it-girl royalty? Quite sweaty, as it happens…
Bella Hadid is an angel. And I’m not talking about the Victoria’s Secret kind. She is simply not human. Packed in a sweltering room with around 100 beauty editors, influencers and celebrities, all desperately toppling over each other in their attempts to get that all-important ’gram, was Bella Hadid. Human angel. Was she all flustered and sweating up a storm like the rest of us? Nope.
Instead, Bella sat serenely, clad in a heavy-lined suede Dior coat, denim jumpsuit and patent red stilettos, as cool as a high-fashion cucumber. It was at that moment I realised Bella Hadid is no mere mortal. She’s not like the rest of us. Yes, she looked great (she is a model, after all), but she also gave off an air that only few can – the sort of air that makes entire crowds go silent the instant she glides into a room. The sort of skin that simply does not sweat. Poised and polite, Bella chatted to everyone she met, scattering compliments as she went (NB she said she liked my hair – life made!), proving herself to be the most courteous celeb we’ve long since come across. And I’ve interviewed a few. Sure, we’re not best friends just yet… But one day we will be – right, Bella?
