Bella Hadid beguiles in a role that makes it clear she’s here to make her own mark “ Personal Best” by Inez & Vinoodh for Vogue Italia, June 2017. Coupling with Natalie Westling, these two models couldn’t be more opposite yet come together strangely well. Bella secures her spot on top with this compelling cover-story by Inez & Vinoodh.
We’re getting use to her affect, accepting that she is not one for real, emotive expression. Alex White takes advantage of Bella’s beautiful body type by showing styles with a revealing edge. She is both lithe & curvaceous with long limbs that lead to a bodacious upper form. A beguiling combination that promises both to bewitch and to but-kick. Preferring a high-waist, Bella Hadid is one of the few that has brought back that 70’s vibe. And she done it with a level of authenticity. Giving off a sometimes darker vibe, each image is alive with a kind of neo-kinetic drive that barrels toward a titillating end. This is a celebration of the female form. Not a salacious blend of sex and style, rather, a distinguished way to deliver high design. The craft of couture is artfully explored, as we see within the frame of each shot a story of change. As women we are used to being put in a box. Either we’re seen as being overt or subtly inclined, but, never has there been much room for that space in-between. A place where most of us live. As humans we are complex, as females we are fierce. A truth that tells us as we travel through the universe on our journey of discovery, we must keep in mind those who follow behind.
