Bella Hadid has taken a not so subtle dig at Victoria’s Secret, saying that she never felt “really sexy” on the runway until walking in a show for rival Savage x Fenty.
Speaking at the Vogue Fashion Festival in Paris, the three-time Victoria’s Secret Angel said she never felt “powerful” until modelling for Rihanna‘s brand in September. She said:
“Rihanna’s amazing. For me, that was the first time on a runway that I felt really sexy. Because when I first did Fenty, I was doing other lingerie shows and I never felt powerful on a runway, like, in my underwear.”
In that New York Fashion Week show, Hadid wore an all-yellow ensemble that included thigh-high stockings, a lacy scarf and a whole lot of gold jewelry.
In other Bella Hadid news, there are rumours of some kind of bad blood between her and Selena Gomez, with a deleted Instagram post in the middle of it all.
A little under two weeks ago, Selena followed Bella on the ‘gram, notable because both have been romantically linked to The Weeknd and are not known to be on friendly terms.
Fans noticed that Selena liked one of Bella’s posts, commenting “Stunning” with a heart-eyes emoji on a photograph of her. Shortly after, though, Bella deleted the whole thing.
Fortunately, an eagle-eyed fan captured a screengrab for posterity.
What could it all mean? Did she just not like the pic? Is there some kind of behind-the-scenes drama going down? I’m figuratively dying to know.Image: Getty Images / Michael Stewart
