Bella Hadid is auctioning off her own personalised clothes for charity.

The model took to Instagram to announce that she will be selling customised pieces from her Chrome Hearts collaboration to raise money for organisations including Know Your Rights Camp and Feeding America.

“I can’t wait to tell you about a project I started at the beginning of quarantine… I’ll be auctioning a whole bunch of limited edition @chromeheartsxbella pieces made by me @ home during my time alone,” she explained, referencing her self-isolation amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Previous Chrome Hearts x Bella collections, which began in 2017, have included sunglasses and T-shirts, as well as bags.

Bella said 100 per cent of proceeds from the auction will be going to the charitable organisations, which she hoped would “further the liberation of Black people worldwide.”

“Making these pieces meant and means so much to me and I’m grateful to @laurielynnstark @richardstarkchromehearts and @mattyboy90 for allowing me to send the profits to where they are most needed,” Bella continued. “So i hope you enjoy & love it all as much I enjoyed making it for you. can’t wait to show you.”

While the 23-year-old didn’t confirm what pieces would be, she shared a series of snaps which included a pair of customised fuzzy dice, and an embroidered bathrobe.

“Proud of you my love,” her mother Yolanda Hadid commented, while designer Marc Jacobs wrote: “Beautiful Bella.”

Know Your Rights Camp was founded by American football player Colin Kaepernick, who has tirelessly campaigned for racial equality, while Feeding America works to supply food banks across the country for those in need.

Bella Hadid blasts Instagram for removing Palestine reference

Bella Hadid has accused Instagram of bullying after the photo-sharing site removed a picture of her Palestinian-born father Mohamed Hadid’s passport.

Model Bella had added the snap to her Instagram Stories, with the words, “My baba and his birthplace of Palestine”.

Mohamed’s American passport states Palestine as his place of birth.

Later, she updated her 31.4 million followers that Instagram bosses had taken issue with the passport picture.

Sharing a screengrab of the post’s removal, which stated the reason for deleting was because it goes against community guidelines, Bella raged: “A message to me from @instagram… Instagram removed my story that only said ‘My baba And his birthplace of Palestine’ with a photograph of his American passport. @instagram exactly what part of me being proud of my fathers (sic) birth place of Palestine is ‘bullying, harassment , graphic, or sexual nudity?’ Are we not allowed to be Palestinian on Instagram? This, to me, is bullying. You can’t erase history by silencing people. It doesn’t work like that.”

She then reposted the original photo accompanied by a fresh declaration of pride, and asked if they wanted Mohamed to change his birthplace.

“I am proud to be Palestinian (red heart). Everyone should post where their mother and fathers were born today (sic)! Remind them how proud you are of where you come from!” the 23-year-old wrote.

Dua Lipa’s boyfriend Anwar Hadid has been dyeing her hair a new colour every week during lockdown.

The New Rules singer, who has been self-isolating with the model in London, debuted pink hair on social media back in April and has been changing it up ever since, with her showing off an orange and a red hue over the past few months.

In an interview with British Vogue magazine, the 24-year-old shared that Anwar, the brother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, has been heavily involved in the dyeing process.

“I’m with my boyfriend Anwar… Anwar has been dyeing my hair all kinds of colours – pink, orange, red – it has been a different colour every week,” she told the magazine.

For the new issue of the fashion bible, a range of stars including Ricky Martin and Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra sent in pictures depicting their life in lockdown. In Dua and Anwar’s photo, the couple can be seen posing on a sofa in the middle of playing an X-Box game. She is wearing multi-coloured crotchet shorts and a cropped black jumper bearing a white smiley face, while Anwar sports a Metallica T-shirt and sweatpants.

Elsewhere in the interview, Dua shared that they have also been spending time during lockdown learning new recipes.

“Yesterday we made lamb maeloubah – Anwar’s dad sent us the recipe,” she said. “It was fun to cook together, which is lucky because it was a three-hour activity; it’s the most ambitious thing I have ever set out to make.. It’s quite rewarding when it turns out like the picture. Today I’m making a leek stew my mum would cook, which really takes me back to my childhood.”

Kendall Jenner not only stars in Burberry’s new TB monogram campaign, but she shot the self-portraits herself.

Posing in a long-sleeved bodysuit featuring Burberry head Riccardo Tisci’s interlocking TB print in blue and orange, Jenner was forced to step up and direct the photoshoot herself, with Covid-19 restrictions still firmly in place.

“Riccardo wanted to collaborate closely with me to bring this collection to life in a number of ways. He encouraged me to interpret the campaign myself, which was such an exciting opportunity. I loved being able to add my own personal touch,” the model said.

“(The Burberry team pushed) into this dream-like digital world as I transformed into CGI versions of myself, embodying the four characters. The collection and campaign are also completely my vibe – that relaxed summer spirit really resonates with me as a California girl.”

Famed photographer Nick Knight oversaw the accompanying CGI video, while Peter Saville art directed the campaign and Katy England styled it. It’s the second year Tisci has called on the trio’s expertise.

It marks Jenner’s second campaign for the famous English heritage label – she modelled Burberry’s fall/winter 20 collection alongside Gigi Hadid, who was the star of the summer 19 adverts, and sister Bella Hadid earlier this year.

After taking over from long-serving creative officer Christopher Bailey in early 2018, Italian designer Tisci ushered in a new era at Burberry when he unveiled his revamped logo – a monogram honouring founder Thomas Burberry, which he created with Saville – in August 2018.

Bella Hadid has been tapped to front the latest swimwear campaign for Calvin Klein.

The model is the face of the American brand’s latest CK Spring 2020 Swim collection, and Bella can be seen channelling her inner mermaid in the ethereal images.

Shot by British fashion photographer Charlotte Wales, the 23-year-old poses underwater in a swimming pool while wearing a black, high leg all-in-one. In another image she rocks a hot pink swimsuit.

And in one black-and-white shot, Bella is seen wearing a stripy, flowing kaftan over a bikini, while resting against a wall.

The ‘90s-inspired pieces feature the classic Calvin Klein logo across the swimsuits, or a retro version on bikinis, and are available in colour ways such as bright yellow and pink, as well as classic black and white styles.

This isn’t the first time the model has fronted a swimwear ad for Calvin Klein. Last year, she was the face of the brand’s summer 2019 swimwear campaign alongside models Abby Champion and Matthew Noszka.

And the Calvin Klein brand ambassador featured in the star-studded #MyCalvins IRL ad campaign with Naomi Campbell, Diplo, Beth Ditto, and Cara Taylor.

Bella also serves as the face of the Jacquemus Spring 2020 campaign, which was shot entirely on the model’s iPhone over FaceTime amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Amandla Stenberg was inspired by a TikTok trend to shave off their eyebrows.

The Hate U Give star has been sharing skincare, hair and make-up tips in a beauty tutorial for Vogue. While explaining how experimenting with different hairstyles has kept them busy during the Covid-19 lockdown, Amandla revealed they are “loving” a new eyebrow look.

“I just did that thing that everyone is doing now where I shaved off the end of my eyebrows because of godda*n TikTok so I have a different eyebrow shape than usual,” Amandla shared while applying tinted gel to their eyebrow hairs. “But honestly… I’m absolutely loving it.”

Amandla’s brows still appeared well shaped and full, with just a subtle fade at the tips. Vogue reports The Hunger Games star is likely to have been inspired by the ‘fox eye’ trend circulating on social media recently, which has seen beauty fans shave sections of their brows in a bid to look like supermodels Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

Amandla made the brow revelation near the end of the tutorial. Earlier in the video the 21-year-old also demonstrated how to create the perfect box braid using curl styling cream and edge control gel, describing the look as “gender neutral, but still femme”.

Amandla went on to share their make-up regime, which can vary from subtle to full on smoky eyes.

“As I’ve gotten older, my relationship with make-up has shifted depending on how I”m feeling in my body, how often I’m having to wear it for work, so many things,” Amandla explained. “I feel like I have a relationship with it now that feels way less about covering up flaws and insecurities around myself, more about just having fun.”

Top models and designers have congratulated Matthew Williams on his new role at Givenchy.

On Monday, bosses at the Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH)-owned French luxury label announced that the 1017 Alyx 9SM designer would succeed Clare Waight Keller as creative director following her departure last month.

After the news was revealed, a number of top industry names were quick to take to social media to praise Williams.

On an Instagram post, Naomi Campbell wrote, “Congratulations” along with a heart and star emoji, while Adwoa Aboah commented, “Well done stunner,” and Coco Rocha stated, “So excited for this!”

Stylist Karla Welch posted, “Congratulations Matt!!!”, and designer Marc Jacobs added, “Congratulations to you Matthew.”

Elsewhere, fashion journalist Tim Blanks wrote, “Can’t wait to see what happens next,” and designer Gabriela Hearst noted, “So well deserved. Hyper Talented and Kind Human.”

Dior menswear designer Kim Jones, Bella Hadid, and hairstylist Jen Atkin also shared supportive messages.

Known for his ability to merge streetwear with sharp tailoring, Chicago-born, California-raised Williams founded his 1017 Alyx 9SM label in 2015 and has since expanded his offerings to include ready-to-wear, accessories, and shoe collections.

And in a statement, Sidney Toledano, chief executive officer and chairman of LVMH Fashion Group, shared his excitement over Williams’ appointment.

“I am very happy to see Matthew M. Williams join the LVMH Group. Since he took part in the LVMH Prize, we have had the pleasure of watching him develop into the great talent he is today,” he said. “I believe his singular vision of modernity will be a great opportunity for Givenchy to write its new chapter with strength and success.”

Gigi and Bella Hadid have helped raise $20,000 (£16,000) for charity by donating designer items to an auction.

The siblings, along with fellow models including Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, and Helena Christensen, teamed up with fashion bible British Vogue and the online retailer Hardly Ever Worn It for the star-studded The Way We Wore sale, which raised funds for the NHS (National Health Service) Charities Together and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) organisations.

The model sisters donated four items between them and the most popular pieces proved to be Gigi’s Dior saddle bag, which sold for $5,000 (£4,000), and Bella’s paint-splattered Miu Miu boots, which sold for a whopping $13,660 (£10,800).

“These Miu Miu boots mean so much to me. I wore them for the brand’s spring/summer ’20 campaign,” the 23-year-old said as she offered them up for the auction. “To begin with they were plain beige, but as I got messy with paints, I realised the boots were becoming an art piece in themselves. I asked if I could keep them to eventually auction for a cause that I felt passionately about, and this is the perfect opportunity.”

And her older sister Gigi, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, was keen to donate pieces from her wardrobe, including clothing from Rihanna’s Fenty collection, to benefit worthy causes.

“I appreciate the opportunity to give back in this way, and hope that whoever ends up with these pieces – The Fenty top and skirt, and Dior Saddle bag – really enjoys them, knowing that their contribution will help those struggling due to Covid-19. Zayn and I send our love and best wishes to everyone,” she wrote.

More than 30 items were donated by famous faces, including Adut Akech’s blue tweed Chanel bag, which was sold for $5,200 (£4,100).

The auction raised more than $67,000 (£53,000) in total.

Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Helena Christensen have all donated clothing from their personal collections in support of a charity auction.

The models have teamed up with bosses at British Vogue and the luxury resale retail site Hardly Ever Worn It to offer up designer items from their closets to benefit the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) Charities Together organisation as well as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Among the items up for grabs are Gigi’s Dior Saddle bag, Joan’s Givenchy carryall bag, and a Dior wrap dress from Helena, alongside other coveted items such as Bella Hadid’s paint-splattered Miu Miu boots, a cream Chanel jacket from Kendall Jenner, and Christian Siriano dresses donated by Ashley Graham and Karlie Kloss.

And Kate Moss has even offered up an Alexander McQueen jacket for The Way We Wore auction, which will launch on Tuesday and finish on Friday. Each item will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with proceeds directly benefitting the charities.

The models have also snapped a selfie of themselves posing with the item they’re donating, and the pictures were unveiled in British Vogue’s July 2020 edition, alongside news of the auction.

In Gigi’s black-and-white photo, she is seen standing alongside her boyfriend Zayn Malik, who wears her Dior Saddle bag on his back, while Joan is depicted sat on a stool wearing nothing but a pair of black bikini bottoms and the Givenchy slung over her shoulder.

The items are available to view on vogue.hardlyeverwornit.com.
