A surgeon using an ancient ratio has claimed Bella Hadid is the world’s most beautiful woman.

Top plastic surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva has scrutinised the world’s great beauties, using the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, and determined that the 23-year-old model is near perfection.

Dr. De Silva found Hadid’s face to be 94.35 per cent “accurate” to the Golden Ratio after measuring her eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw and facial shape, stating: “She is closest to the ancient Greeks’ idea of perfection.”

In an Instagram explanation, he added, “The list was compiled using the latest computerised mapping techniques, which allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what it is that makes someone physically beautiful. The technology is useful when planning patients’ surgery.

“To be deemed ‘beautiful’ according to the Golden Ratio, the length of the ear must be equal to the length of the nose and the width of an eye should be equal to the distance between the eyes.”

In a second post on Instagram, he revealed that the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi – which focuses on symmetry and proportion – dates back to the European Renaissance from the 14th and 17th centuries, when artists and architects used it to help with their work.

Beyonce was second on the list with 92.44 per cent, followed by Amber Heard with 91.85 per cent, Ariana Grande with 91.81 per cent and Taylor Swift with 91.64 per cent.

Bella Hadid has opened up about her mental health struggles in a candid post on Instagram.

During Mental Health Awareness Week, the 23-year-old model shone a light on the importance of being honest and open with each other and asking friends and family for help.

Sharing a quote from writer Hannah Blum about being hopeful when skies are grey, Bella went on to tell her 26 million followers that she too has battled mental health issues, and insisted that she is at a point in her life where she is finally feeling better.

“I still have bad days along with the good, but grateful and proud of myself to be in the place that I am today, going into my 23rd year of life,” she wrote, before issuing a warning about the illusions of happiness on social media. “With that being said, I would like to add that everything you see online or through social media is not always what it seems… the happiness we create online while being sad in real life makes no sense, but sometimes it just seems easier to live within your sadness rather than talk about it.”

Bella, who recently reportedly reunited with boyfriend The Weeknd, thanked her family and friends for pulling her out of a dark and sad place and highlighted the importance of self-care.

“Don’t feel pressured by things online… if you don’t want to get out of bed, don’t… When the world feels like it is collapsing around you, you are allowed to ask for help… you do not have to deal w/ your mental state alone,” Bella explained.

She ended her lengthy post by urging her fans and followers to be kind to each other.

“We all need love & support and if you can be the one to bring somebody happiness or a calmness that they can’t find in themselves, please be that person… You never know how much your words or just a smile can change someone’s day n even yours as well (sic),” she shared.

Bella Hadid gets stressed out if she has a day off work.

The 22-year-old model, who has walked the runway for the likes of Tom Ford, Dior, Chanel, Givenchy and Versace, has become so used to her fast-paced lifestyle that she becomes irritated when she isn’t working.

“I’m really never not working, so I don’t think downtime is a part of my life anymore. I’ve grown to understand everything in my life is fast-paced and that slowing things down kind of stresses me out,” she told Marie Claire magazine.

“If I have any spare time, I’m saying, ‘Where are all my jobs?’ Then I have to tell myself to calm down because it’s been only a day and a half. I actually fell asleep in the makeup chair once while (Dior make-up artist) Peter Philips was doing my makeup. I woke up with stars, stripes, and big eyeliner all over my face.”

The model, who credits Peter with transforming her make-up routine, also revealed that when she first began her career back in 2014, she didn’t even own an eyebrow pencil.

“I don’t even think I owned an eyebrow pencil when I started. I’ve brought (Peter’s) tricks into my everyday routine, mostly how to sculpt my face by accentuating little features. It’s pretty simple: just a good contour and a little rosy blush. It takes a lot for me to even put on mascara. My night look is pretty similar, but I may add a touch of gold highlighter,” she explained.

And while Bella has plenty of friends including Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and her sister Gigi Hadid, she confessed she very rarely goes out.

“I rarely go out anymore if it’s not for work. That means it’s usually me getting my glam done at my house before an event, and then my best friends will come listen to music and hang out,” Bella stated.

Off-White presents space-themed collection for spring 2020

Off-White has unveiled a space-themed collection for spring/summer 2020.

The Milan-based fashion house held a presentation at the Centre Pompidou on Thursday night as part of Paris Fashion Week, however, founder Virgil Abloh was not in attendance, having announced earlier this month that he was taking three months off to focus on his health.

Drawing in celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Olivia Culpo, Tyga, and Halsey, the show, titled Meteor Shower, kicked off with a recording of the voice of Dr. Mae Jemison, who became the first black woman to travel in space when she served as a mission specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

“The fundamental concept is to illustrate a woman’s power,” explained Abloh in the show notes. “To show that her spirit is indestructible by natural forces. She can withstand a ‘meteor shower’ both metaphorically and physically speaking.”

To open, Adut Akech walked the runway in a white shirtdress with heavy steel earrings. A number of outfits which merged Abloh’s interest in streetwear and sculptural silhouettes followed, with a white dress with parachute-esque skirt proving to be a highlight, as was a parka coat matched with sporty separates.

The designer had fun with the theme too, cutting round holes in tops and trouser legs, with the quirky motifs meant to resemble “craters formed by falling rock,” and also refer to the ‘cheesehead’ hat worn by fans at sports games in Wisconsin, where Abloh attended university.

He also cut holes into an updated version of Off-White’s Jitney handbag, with the design making it nearly impossible to store anything inside.

To end the spectacle, a line-up of models walked the runway in white ensembles topped with utilitarian accessories, while sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid modelled hot pink dresses at the conclusion.

Fendi serves up camping chic for spring 2020 collection

Fendi has unveiled a camping-inspired line for its spring/summer 2020 collection.

On Thursday, Silvia Venturini Fendi unveiled her debut ready-to-wear line for the Italian label as part of Milan Fashion Week, with the designer having expanded her duties at her family’s company following the death of womenswear creative director Karl Lagerfeld in February.

Katie Holmes, Diplo, and Sabrina Carpenter were among the celebrities perched on the front row, with a huge sunset motif installed as the backdrop to the runway.

“Impossible blooms and ethereal textures intertwine to trick the eye – shifting in weightless moments of Fendi craftsmanship, invoking the hidden decadence of the everyday,” a Fendi representative said of the inspiration for the collection. “Emerging from a waking dream, the Fendi woman delights in undone expressions of new Borghese energy.”

Silvia evidently wanted to symbolise a step into the future for Fendi, and the presentation opened with a model walking the catwalk in a white quilted jacket and miniskirt. The looked was matched with shimmery socks and pink loafers.

Influenced by camping adventures and the outdoors, a line of playful separates followed, with key pieces including printed shirts with leaf designs, shorts, and bucket hats.

References to late 1960s fashion were apparent too, with Silvia opting for a palette of dark yellow, ochre, and brown, along with touches of bright green and white.

Highlights included the cargo-style jumpsuit and trench coat modelled by Bella Hadid, and a coat with gauzy panels woven through the centre which was worn by the newly-blonde Kendall Jenner.

To close out the spectacle, Silvia unveiled a line-up of ensembles made with pastel or metallic fabrics, and concluded by having a model show off a long dress with wide sleeves that featured a very retro floral print in pink, green, and blue shades.

Milan Fashion Week continues on Friday with shows from Marni and Versace.

Jeremy Scott has paid tribute to Pablo Picasso for Moschino’s spring/summer 2020 collection.

The fashion designer unveiled his latest line for the Italian label as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday night, and true to form, offered up an extravagant spectacle.

Honouring the life and artwork of the Spanish painter and sculptor, the presentation opened with a model walking the runway in a brightly coloured dress which evoked Picasso’s early Fauvist-inspired art.

Brightly coloured printed suits and graphic coats with sharp shoulders followed, with dresses resembling the flowing curves and abstract shapes of the icon’s first Cubist pieces.

Referencing Picasso’s heritage, one model sported the red cape and black hat of a matador, along with blue leggings and shiny gold jewellery, while another carried a black purse with the words “Bull chic” splashed across the front.

Joan Smalls rocked a red and gold dress inspired by the embellished outfits worn by bullfighters, and another model showed off a red polka dot dress with ruffled sleeves, similar to the worn of flamenco dancers.

A highlight of the collection was a black gown dotted with sequin flower appliques, with the look worn by Stella Maxwell, as was a black velvet dress with architectural shoulders that was dotted with blue and green beads and had pink lining in the skirt.

Yet, somehow Scott managed to turn the theme up another notch towards the end of the presentation, having Kaia Gerber walk the catwalk in an outfit shaped into a guitar, as influenced by Picasso’s still life paintings, another model donned a sequin dress which referred to the artist’s groundbreaking 1907 work Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, and others sported pieces that looked like actual gold Baroque picture frames.

To conclude, Bella Hadid rocked a pink and blue sequin jumpsuit which alluded to Picasso’s paintings of harlequins, Irina Shayk dazzled in a gold and black dress with violin motif, and Gigi Hadid was Moschino’s “bride” in an over-the-top white dress with huge veil and dove motifs attached to the front.

Kendall Jenner debuts blonde hair on Burberry spring 2020 runway

Kendall Jenner showed off a new blonde look at Burberry’s London Fashion Week presentation on Monday.

The 23-year-old, who regularly takes breaks from the catwalk, skipped New York Fashion Week earlier this month and made her spring 2020 debut with a surprise appearance at Riccardo Tisci’s presentation, held at the Troubadour White City Theatre.

The reality TV star opened the show wearing a cream jacket emblazoned with a “Burberry England” logo and black skirt with fringed hemline, but it was her new bleached blonde locks that caught attention.

Kendall also showed off her new, lighter tresses, which were dyed by celebrity hairstylist Guido Palau, by filming a short Instagram Stories video in her car and posting a picture of her with Tisci and fellow Burberry models Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Agyness Deyn backstage at the show. She was also seen rocking her new look at a Tyler, the Creator gig later that night.

The model, who is known for her signature dark hair, has gone light before – she previously dyed her hair platinum blonde to walk the runway for Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show in March 2016.

Kendall’s inclusion in the Burberry spectacle comes shortly after she admitted to Vogue that she missed strutting her stuff on the runways while perched front row during New York Fashion Week.

“Today I was missing it. I was watching the girls and I was like, ‘Damn, I kind of want to walk,'” she said, before teasing that she would be returning soon.

Celebrities including Naomi Campbell, Dua Lipa, Anwar Hadid, and FKA Twigs looked on as models presented Tisci’s Evolution collection, inspired by the Victorian era in which Burberry was founded. The line featured fitted waists, elaborate sleeves and scarves, streetwear, and a new take on the classic trench coat.

Model-turned-actress Deyn, who returned to the runway for the first time since 2015, wore the classic beige trench adorned with jewelled embellishments, an oversized striped shirt, and pale pink tailored trousers, while Shayk sported pale purple trousers, a blouse, and a large printed silk scarf.

Agyness Deyn made her runway comeback at Burberry’s spring/summer 2020 show on Monday.

The British model, who is known for her platinum blonde crop and punk-inspired style, made a surprise appearance at creative director Riccardo Tisci’s latest presentation as part of London Fashion Week. Her last runway gig was in 2015.

Partway through the spectacle, Deyn walked the catwalk in white trousers, a striped shirt, and a classic Burberry trench which was dotted with crystal embellishments.

Speaking to Vogue about the gig, the 36-year-old explained that it felt natural to be back in the Burberry fold, especially as she had worked with former artistic head Christopher Bailey a number of times.

“It just made sense to me,” she told the fashion publication. “I had a very good relationship with the house when it was under Christopher and I feel honoured to walk for Riccardo. I love what he has done with it.”

Deyn had fronted advertisements for Burberry after launching her career in the early 2000s and was the face of the label’s fragrance, The Beat.

However, after many years at the top of the fashion industry, the model announced in 2012 that she was retiring and planned to embark on an acting career. She has since gone on to land roles in films such as 2016’s The White King and 2018’s Her Smell.

For the Burberry presentation, Tisci offered up a mix of outfits influenced by the label’s heritage pieces, sharp separates, tailored suits, and oversized striped hoodies.

Other models to feature in the presentation included Irina Shayk, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner, who had dyed her signature brunette locks blonde for the event.

Michael Kors unveils American Dream-inspired spring 2020 collection

Michael Kors explored the idea of the American Dream in his spring/summer 2020 presentation.

The fashion designer showcased his latest collection as part of New York Fashion Week at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Wednesday, with the event occurring on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Celebrities including Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Yalitza Aparicio were in attendance.

Although he didn’t mention 9/11 directly, Kors made a patriotic tribute to his homeland as he saluted classic American fashion while the Young People’s Chorus of New York City serenaded the crowd with songs including Don McLean’s American Pie and Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land.

Speaking to reporters, the 60-year-old explained that the inspiration for the collection came from a trip he made with his husband Lance LePere to Ellis Island where he learned about his immigrant great-grandmother’s arrival to the U.S. at the age of 14.

“I walked out feeling incredibly patriotic because I thought about the fact that she built a business, raised a family and her dream was to cross the river to Brooklyn,” he told The Associated Press.

The collection channelled themes of American pride as well as love and peace, which was best exemplified with a jumper emblazoned with the word ‘Hate’ crossed out, clothing featuring cherry patterns, and shoes dotted with holly and ivy, like the topping on a pie.

Nautical chic had a big presence, as evident in sailor hats, boat shoes, and stripes, while jumpers, trousers and a swimsuit were covered in small anchor motifs. The colour palette was heavy on reds, whites, and blues.

Polka dots and gingham were also big news, as well as power dressing, with Bella Hadid wearing a blazer dress. The show concluded with models such as Adut Akech and Gigi Hadid sporting sparkly evening gowns.

Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.
