BELLA’S DESERT AD­VEN­TURE

THE SU­PER­MODEL LIVES HER BEST LIFE DUR­ING THE ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX AND WANTS US ALL TO KNOW ABOUT IT

Grazia Middle East - - THE HOT STORIES -

THERE ARE SOME LIVES THAT ARE MADE FOR IN­STA­GRAM. Bella Hadid’s is one of them. Af­ter flaunt­ing her ridicu­lously toned fig­ure at the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show in New York re­cently, the su­per­model flew into the United Arab Emi­rates’ cap­i­tal to en­joy an adren­a­line-fu­elled desert ad­ven­ture ex­pe­ri­ence.

While it wasn’t the star’s first visit to the re­gion – Bella is of Pales­tinian de­scent and has pre­vi­ously gushed that she is “proud to be a Mus­lim” – the model proved her love for

Abu Dhabi is as strong as ever. As she flew over Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, she gushed, “Magic ... Noth­ing in the world more beau­ti­ful to me”, be­fore adding that Abu Dhabi is one of her “favourite places in the world”.

Af­ter watch­ing The Weeknd – real name Abel Tes­faye – per­form dur­ing the Grand Prix week­end, Bella em­barked on an ex­trav­a­gant hol­i­day in the desert. She shared pho­tos from the trip, where she rode quad­bikes and camels across the sand. And be­fore you ask, yes, she man­aged to make all the ac­tiv­i­ties look glam­orous.

As Bella lit­er­ally drove off into the sun­set, on the Abu

Dhabi For­mula 1 track Geri Horner took a break from re­hears­ing for the Spice Girls’ re­u­nion tour to cosy up to Sam Smith, while rac­ing cham­pion Lewis Hamil­ton took self­ies with A-lis­ter Will Smith. Leg­endary rock­ers Guns N’ Roses also per­formed a mes­meris­ing two-hour set as they closed the 10th edi­tion of the af­ter-race con­certs at du Arena. Nicely done.

Bella has been en­joy­ing a well-earned break fol­low­ing her mem­o­rable walk in the world-fa­mous cat­walk show. Sub­se­quent to the ca­reer high­light – which also in­volved her sis­ter Gigi Hadid and their close friend Ken­dall Jenner

– the star thanked the Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret team for cre­at­ing a ‘mag­i­cal’ show. “Gets bet­ter ev­ery year,” she en­thused. “I’m still in shock that I’m able to walk next to some of the most in­cred­i­ble, pow­er­ful women in the world. I hope to im­prove ev­ery year I get the hon­our of walk­ing in this show.”

Don’t worry, Bella, nei­ther your walk nor In­sta­gram ac­count can im­prove, in our eyes.
