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 has named bagels as her number one pregnancy craving.

After rumours began to circulate earlier this week, the model confirmed she and boyfriend Zayn Malik are expecting their first child together during a video interview with The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.

Opening up about her experience so far, Gigi admitted that she has been eating a lot of breakfast snacks, with her family even hiring Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro to make her a cake that resembled a bagel with cream cheese for her birthday last week.

“My craving has been everything bagels,” she shared. “I eat an everything bagel every day and so I was already, like, so excited that my birthday cake was the everything bagel.”

Gigi went on to note that it isn’t easy being pregnant in lockdown, but she’s making the most of the downtime with former One Direction star Zayn and the other members of her family on their farm in Pennsylvania.

“It’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it day by day,” the 25-year-old smiled.

Gigi is reportedly 20 weeks pregnant.

And elsewhere in the chat, the blonde beauty explained that while she would have preferred to have made her own pregnancy announcement, she is grateful for everyone’s support.

“Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she added.

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.

Gigi Hadid makes her own furniture during ‘healing’ retreats at family farm

Gigi Hadid makes her own furniture to wind down during “healing” retreats at her family farm in Pennsylvania.

In a new interview with U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, the model was asked a series of questions from her famous friends, including singer Taylor Swift, tennis ace Serena Williams, and Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh.

However, it was a query posed by fellow model Kendall Jenner that prompted Gigi to share her love for relaxation at her mother Yolanda Hadid’s luxurious country farm.

“It’s allowed me to fill my days off with the little things that make me happy, like art, gardening, yoga, cooking, being outside, and spending time with my loved ones and animals without having to worry about things like what I’m wearing or how my hair looks, or being photographed or seen that day,” she candidly stated. “Being away from the city and the public eye makes me feel like a kid again, and that freedom has been really healing for me.”

And it was a question from actress Blake Lively, who quizzed the 24-year-old over her newfound love of making her own chairs, that shed light on Gigi’s unusual hobby.

“When I’m spending time on the farm, I find it fun to try something new and see if I can pull it off,” the star explained. “It’s liberating to just create without the end goal of it being necessary to finish. The chair idea came from that.”

And while Gigi “failed miserably” in her first attempt, she has since successfully made her own chair.

“I like the ‘Try and fail and try again’ method. It keeps it fun and interesting for me, and even through failures you can learn so much,” she 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.

Lanvin has gone for full-on retro glamour for its fall/winter 2020 collection.

Creative director Bruno Sialelli, who was appointed to helm the French house in January 2019, presented his third line at La Galerie des Gobelins as part of Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, with the show attracting celebrities such as Isabelle Huppert, Yolanda Hadid, Tyga, Teyana Taylor, Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh, and British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.

Regarding his inspiration for the line, Sialelli looked through the archives of label founder Jeanne Lanvin and contemplated the peak of the couture brand during its 1920s heyday.

To begin, a model walked the runway in a burgundy leather wing coat with matching boots and teal leather gloves. A number of similar silhouettes followed, all accessorised with either gold bracelets, gloves, and calf-length boots.

Coats were a big focus, with Sialelli offering up leather, check, and belted wool versions with oversized shoulder detailing, with Bella Hadid stepping out in a luxurious white number with gold buttons and fluffy collar.

“LANVIN!!! My dream coat, music, show … thank you to my dears,” the model captioned a snap on Instagram following the spectacle.

Elsewhere, the designer included long printed dresses, sheer black outfits with lace trim, knitwear separates and chic suiting, with the choice of beige and mint green fabric for the two-pieces referencing the signature pastel hues of the house.

To conclude, Sialelli unveiled a range of flapper-esque dresses, with Adut Akech in a black and silver beaded ensemble and Gigi Hadid sporting a shorter style alongside a navy coat and red gloves.

“Kicked off Paris closing the beautiful @lanvinofficial show yesterday. Congrats & thank you @brunosialelli,” she posted.

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.

Marc Jacobs has celebrated the intersection of “chaos and form” with his fall/winter 2020 collection.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday night, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Naomi Campbell, Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour.

To kick off the presentation, Karole Armitage, known as the “punk ballerina”, took to the stage to perform a show-stopping abstract dance.

“Our fall/winter 2020 collection celebrates the intersection of chaos and form, the rituals of getting dressed and the power of storytelling through movement as a gesture into possibility,” a brand representation wrote on Instagram. “Marc Jacobs celebrates the power of storytelling through the movements of legendary and renowned choreographer and dancer, Karole Armitage. Karole’s talent and genius is in her ability to dismiss the discipline of her craft by challenging conventional gestures. Her abrupt, fierce and sometimes violent articulations brings the cultural influences of today into conversation with a past New York I will forever love, not for longing of time passed but for moments that are timeless in reference.”

A troupe of dancers continued to perform in the background as the show began, with a model opening in a lemon-yellow coat and matching leggings. A series of similar numbers in pale pink and white followed, with Kaia Gerber wearing a pale yellow faux fur coat and matching hat.

However, Jacobs then dropped in a variety of eclectic looks, such as a spotted coat, red dress with white Peter Pan collar, a light blue pea coat, a red tartan jumpsuit, and a grey tweed suit.

Other highlights included a black sequin evening gown as worn by Bella Hadid, a white suit and red beret as modelled by Gigi Hadid, singer Miley Cyrus in a black bralet and trouser combination, as well as Karlie Kloss in a white gown with a high-neck top and long silk skirt.

Bella Hadid: ‘I started modelling way too young’

Bella Hadid believes she started her modelling career “way too young” because she wasn’t prepared for the recognition she received.

The 23-year-old grew up a keen equestrian and had dreams of representing the U.S. at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil until she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, along with her mother Yolanda and brother Anwar, in 2012. Accordingly, she decided to follow in the footsteps of her sister Gigi and dropped out of school to pursue a modelling career, landing her first professional job at the age of 16.

In a candid new interview with LOVE magazine, Bella admitted she didn’t have a great deal of confidence in her appearance at that age and would often hate seeing photos of herself and feel “mortified” when brands wanted to work with her.

“In my opinion, I started modelling way too young,” she shared. “I was still growing, and my confidence wasn’t fully matured. I didn’t love myself or didn’t necessarily think I was worthy of all of the recognition I was getting.”

However, Bella has since developed a strong work ethic and is always determined to give her all during a job.

“Being a model is about being a team, working together and being creative,” the brunette beauty continued. “If I don’t go into a shoot every day and leave being incredibly proud of the work we made, then it doesn’t seem like a successful shoot to me.”

Bella, who has posed for fashion campaigns for brands such as Moschino, Versace, and DKNY, also insisted that models are not the most important person on the set of a photoshoot, even though they are the subject.

“One thing is always the same: everyone is equally important on set. Everyone is there for the same reason, to work hard and make art,” she stated.
