Bella Hadid is finding it hard having so much free time on her hands during the coronavirus lockdown because she likes having a non-stop work schedule.

As one of the most in-demand models working today, the 23-year-old is frequently tapped to front campaigns, walk in runway presentations, and grace the covers of magazines.

However, the coronavirus crisis, which has had a huge impact on the fashion industry, has forced Bella to slow down and she’s finding adjusting to the slower pace to be quite difficult.

“I’m not great at being alone, and I’m such a workaholic, so being isolated has been hard for me. Recently, I made a conscious effort to wake up in the morning and say my mantras to get myself into a happier state of mind,” she shared with Vogue.

The catwalk star has a project she is working on to keep herself busy and eventually raise funds for coronavirus relief efforts.

“I’ve also started tie-dyeing my Chrome Hearts T-shirts, which we eventually plan on selling to donate the profits to single mothers across America who are struggling right now. It’s a blessing that we get to wake up here on our farm, and I want to give back,” Bella stated.

The model has been self-isolating at her family’s farm in Pennsylvania with her mother Yolanda, sister Gigi, Gigi’s boyfriend Zayn Malik, and Gigi’s good friend Leah McCarthy, who has been serving as their photographer for at-home photoshoots.

To accompany the Vogue article, Bella and Gigi posed beside a cow on their farm.

In the snap, Bella leans against a golf cart with a bucket in her hand and wears wellington boots, blush pink trousers, a white blouse, and a high-fashion padded coat.

Gigi Hadid’s friend has become her fashion photographer during lockdown

Gigi Hadid’s friend Leah McCarthy has been serving as her fashion photographer during the coronavirus lockdown.

The 25-year-old model, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, has been self-isolating at her farm in Pennsylvania with the One Direction singer, her mother Yolanda, sister Bella, and her good friend Leah – who she turned to for help when editors from fashion magazines started asking if she could pose for photoshoots in her home.

“My friend Leah, who has been quarantined with us from the beginning because she was working in New York when it happened, she’s like the photographer,” Gigi said via videolink on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday. “So, she’s got a really easy fast route to photography stardom and now has two Vogue shoots under her belt.”

Jimmy then asked the model if Leah knows what she’s doing, and she replied, “No, but she’s like, ‘I don’t know what’s so hard about this.'”

The catwalk beauty revealed that magazine editors started reaching out to her for DIY photoshoots as soon as the lockdown began. She’s done one for Vogue Italia, in which she played video game Mario Kart while wearing a red Chanel ensemble they sent her, and another for U.S. Vogue’s Postcards From Home series in which she wore her own clothes and posed with Bella and some farm animals.

“It kind of started the first week we were in it, I was already getting calls like, ‘Hey, these magazines want you to shoot yourself at home,'” she explained. “I did one for Italian Vogue where they sent a Chanel look and I kind of made it a quarantine fantasy scene, but American Vogue wanted it to have clothes that were meaningful and told a story.”

Models Eva Herzigova and Imaan Hammam recently posed for home photoshoots for Vogue Arabia, while pregnant actress Chloe Sevigny staged a nude photoshoot over video conferencing site Zoom for The Cut.

Bella Hadid and Anna Wintour have urged followers to take social distancing measures seriously and stay at home to help curb the spread of coronavirus.

Residents of many countries around the world have been instructed to self-isolate and avoid social gatherings to help reduce the spread of Covid-19, which has now infected more than 341,000 people, resulting in the deaths of approximately 14,700.

However, some people have not been taking the social distancing advice seriously, with them getting scolded by celebrities and the general public online.

The 23-year-old helped encourage her followers to stay at home over the weekend by sharing a topless selfie in which she uses a half-eaten burrito to cover her modesty.

“Me and my burrito telling you to stay inside! not only for the sake of just yourself but also for literally the entire world and all of the people that you love,” she wrote in the Instagram caption. “Its (sic) crazy because all we have to do is work together to slow down this virus and people are still having trouble understanding that… don’t be selfish!”

After suggesting activities that people could do to pass the time, she concluded by instructing her followers to “wash those damn hands” and added, “To the people who are still working and the ones who can’t … I love you and I am thinking about you!”

Meanwhile, U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour posted a picture of herself relaxing in an armchair at home on the publication’s Instagram page and implored readers to join her and the rest of the magazine’s staff in pledging to stay at home.

“There is no more important rule for all of us to follow. We must, right this moment, pledge to stay in our homes as much as we possibly can,” she wrote. “There is no debate or discussion. We must stay in our homes. That is the only way to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and to protect those who are most vulnerable to it. So, join me in a pledge that all of us at @voguemagazine are making today: #stayhome. There is no more valuable action you can take.”

Storm Reid made her runway debut during Miu Miu’s Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday.

The Euphoria actress opened the Italian fashion house’s fall/winter 2020 presentation at the Palais d’Iena wearing a bronze crushed satin dress and a dark grey tweed overcoat, with her braids shaped into a ’40s updo.

The 16-year-old later took to Instagram to show pictures and video of her walking the runway and expressed her excitement in the caption.

“Wow. Wow. Wow. Today I walked in my first fashion show. Not only did I walk, but I opened the show. In Paris. For @MIUMIU. Insane right?!?” she gushed. “Thank you to the whole @miumiu team and (stylist) @kegrand for not only allowing but trusting me to do this. I always felt like I could walk in a show, and (creative director) @jasonbolden told me to be patient, and I’m so glad I was. We did it J! This is something that will be etched in my mind and heart forever. XO.”

Storm received praise from celebrities in the comments section, with her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Mindy Kaling writing, “Wow wow wow!! You are (fire) Storm!!” and Janelle Monae posting, “Gooooo stormie !!!!!” with a fire emoji.

The star was joined by the likes of models Adut Akech, Gigi Hadid, and Bella Hadid on the runway, while British singer Rita Ora made a surprise catwalk appearance wearing a floor-length military-inspired navy coat.

Rita shared images from her runway moment on Instagram too, and posted, “So your girl gave you a walk today Hunay on this fine Tuesday! Such an honour to walk for you #MucciaPrada @MiuMiu So amazing to work with such an amazing team thank you (sic).”

The 29-year-old is no stranger to strutting her stuff on the catwalk – she has previously appeared in shows for DKNY and Moschino.

Balenciaga has tackled the topic of climate change with its fall/winter 2020 show.

Creative director Demna Gvasalia unveiled his latest line for the luxury fashion label as part of Paris Fashion Week on Sunday, with the likes of Bella Hadid, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West all in attendance.

However, none of the celebrities were perched on the front row, as the Georgian designer looked to confront the climate crisis by having the show space transformed into a post-apocalyptic scene complete with flooded runway and LED screens on the roof depicting dramatic storms.

Merging a variety of references, the show opened with a parade of 14 models sporting head-to-toe black outfits, with many of them wearing long capes.

“The austerity of clerical garb and court robes are interpreted for casual wear. Classical traditions, hardcore aesthetics, and fetishised details are combined and rearranged, mixing business with pleasure,” Gvasalia explained in the show notes. “Neo-gothic dressing looks back and forward at the possibilities of menswear, layering floor-length skirts and caped coats.”

Elsewhere, the designer included deconstructed shirts and pleated skirts, leather trench coats, floral print dresses, PVC coat dresses, motocross suits, and dresses with exaggerated pagoda shoulders and upright collars.

Gvasalia also had fun with logos, introducing the fictional Balenciaga Football Club and a line-up of sportswear-inspired uniforms, with the outfits contrasting with the final looks, which included skin-tight bodysuits in red and purple, as well as slinky black gowns and a long-shoulder silver beaded dress.

“Gala dresses are all-inclusive: shoes, gloves, leggings, and gowns in one piece. Bodywear becomes a second skin, at once obscuring and revealing,” he added.

Yolanda Hadid made her runway return during the Off-White presentation on Thursday night.

The Netherlands-born reality TV star worked as a model for 15 years before moving to Los Angeles in the mid-1990s and starting a family with her then-husband Mohamed Hadid.

While Yolanda is now often spotted in attendance at the fashion shows her daughters Gigi and Bella Hadid appear in, she couldn’t refuse an invitation from Off-White creative director Virgil Abloh to take to the catwalk alongside her oldest children as part of his fall/winter 2020 show in Paris.

Abloh told Vogue reporters backstage that he was excited by the idea of having a family involved in the spectacle, which was titled Slightly Off.

“I think, ‘What better sort of muse than not just one woman, but a family unit, the three of them, a family of models?’ I wanted to have that be the anchor of the show,” he said.

Bella opened the show wearing a deconstructed black jacket, long pleated skirt, and chain link necklace, while Gigi closed the spectacle in an avant-garde number comprised of a blue raincoat merged with an enormous white dress.

Yolanda, 56, took to the catwalk right in the middle, wearing a pair of black pencil trousers, a white blazer with black graffiti print, and black sunglasses.

And Bella was thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside her mother.

“It was amazing to walk the runway with her. I think that the outfit he put her in was perfect. It was the most amazing feeling because she’s always been the one that kind of gave us tips, and I think today I was more nervous than her,” she added.

Elsewhere in the presentation, Abloh offered up slinky dresses with round cutouts, cow print fabric, utilitarian jumpsuits, and metallic gowns with off-the-shoulder necklines.

Bella Hadid has been tapped to star in Helmut Lang’s spring/summer 2020 campaign.

Of late, the American model has landed gigs for the likes of Versace, Missoni, and Michael Kors, as well as appeared in shows for Moschino, Max Mara, and Rodarte.

Now, Bella is appearing in the marketing imagery for fashion label Helmut Lang, with the images shot by photographer Ethan James Green and creative directed by Brian Phillips.

The black-and-white visuals stay true to the brand’s minimalist aesthetic, with the 23-year-old only modelling monochromatic clothing.

Styled by Patti Wilson, one snap shows Bella wearing an oversized black leather jacket with matching leather trousers, a classic crop top, statement sunglasses, while another depicts her in a white top with cutouts and black trousers.

For the photoshoot, hairstylist Jimmy Paul opted to style the model’s dark brunette into a straight style with heavy bangs.

And it appears all involved in the project were thrilled with the final result, with Bella writing on Instagram alongside one of the snaps: “Thank you x a billion @ethanjamesgreen @patti_wilson I love you both, pure passion and talent.”

And the post quickly garnered the attention of her celebrity pals, with Anna Dello Russo commenting, “Major”, Dua Lipa writing, “yes yes YES!!!!!” and Elsa Hosk adding: “Sooo sick.”

Ethan has previously shot campaigns for Calvin Klein, Fendi, and Marc Jacobs, and also helmed Helmut Lang’s fall/winter 2017 imagery featuring Dara and Alek Wek.

Jeremy Scott has channelled Marie Antoinette with his latest Moschino collection.

The creative director of the Italian label unveiled his fall/winter 2020 line as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, with the likes of Chiara Ferragni, Yolanda Hadid, and Saweetie all perched on the front row.

Titled Let Them Eat Moschino, Scott once again stuck to his signature camp aesthetic and scattered the range with references to portraits of the last Queen of France before the French Revolution in 1789, as well as to the famous phrase she was believed to have once uttered.

Regarding the concept, the designer told Vogue backstage that he had been influenced by the political divisions around the world occurring at present, especially in relation to protests in Hong Kong, Brexit in the U.K., and backlash over some of U.S. President Donald Trump’s more controversial policies. Yet, rather than offering up a very serious spectacle, he opted instead to spark a sense of delight within the audience.

“All I can do is offer respite,” he shared. “Even if you continue to fight, you need that moment of joy. We all need something uplifting. My role on this earth has only ever been to spread joy and bring happiness.”

To open, model Deirdre Firinne took to the catwalk in a gold embroidered denim dress with extremely wide skirt along with matching lace-up boots and an enormous wig courtesy of hairstylist Paul Hanlon.

A parade of similarly dramatic outfits followed, though Scott interspersed them with ladylike metallic suits, whimsical printed dresses, and candy-striped ballgowns.

Highlights included a black outfit with Moschino logo as worn by Irina Shayk, with the look topped off with layers of ’80s-style chain necklaces, and Bella Hadid in a white dress with wide skirt which was matched with a cropped black leather jacket.

And the fashion star saved his most couture creations till last, with Joan Smalls concluding the presentation by wearing a dress that resembled a tiered cake, and Gigi Hadid stepping out in a coat made entirely of faux red and pink roses.

Miley Cyrus made a surprise appearance on the catwalk during Marc Jacobs’ fashion show on Wednesday night.

The designer unveiled his latest fall/winter 2020 collection at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour, and top models including Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Kaia Gerber.

But instead of joining the audience as she usually does, Cyrus chose to get in on the action partway through the presentation, where she modelled a black bralet, matching trousers, and carried a zebra print coat.

Taking to Instagram after the show, Cyrus posted a video showing her seriously strutting her stuff, and the clip quickly attracted over five million views and comments from her celebrity pals.

Hailey Bieber wrote, “YUP. STOMP QUEEN,” Kloss posted, “Best of both worlds,” and Georgia Fowler penned, “Incredible.” Naomi Campbell simply posted a string of fire emojis.

Cyrus, 27, is a longtime friend of Jacobs and previously collaborated with him in 2013 for a charity T-shirt line, which featured the slogan “Protect the Skin You’re In.”

She also appeared in the designer’s spring 2014 campaign, and they reunited to co-design a pink hoodie to raise funds for Planned Parenthood last year.

Jacobs has long been one of Cyrus’s go-to designers – she wore an outfit from his fall/winter 2013 collection to the Met Gala a few months after he showcased the line.
