BELLA’S DESERT ADVENTURE
THE SUPERMODEL LIVES HER BEST LIFE DURING THE ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX AND WANTS US ALL TO KNOW ABOUT IT
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.
