Who Is Bella Hadid
It would be easy to not know who Bella Hadid is if you don’t follow the fashion industry, but that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t have seen her all over billboards, TV, Instagram, and everywhere in between. Hadid is a model who rose to fame thanks to her older sister and fellow model, Gigi Hadid. The 23 year old quickly made a name for herself in the industry, proving she wasn’t living in her sister’s shadow, as in 2016 she was voted Model of the Year on models.com, which was voted on by industry professionals. Since that year, Hadid has gone on to win multiple awards, appear on the cover of magazines, star in music videos, and feature in the most famous fashion shows in the world.

It goes without saying that Hadid was born in to extreme wealth, but she has undoubtedly created an empire of her own. As early as 2016, when the model was just 19 years old, she was bringing in an hourly wage of $11,000 at the Australian Fashion Week, a figure that is more than a lot of 19 year olds’ annual salary! In 2018, Bella made $8.5 million from modelling and promoting brands, making her the eighth highest paid model in the world.
In 2017, it was announced that Hadid would become the ambassador for Dior Makeup, in which she would be promoting the brand’s products and host a web series called Dior Makeup live with Bella Hadid. The model would also film tutorials in which she would talk the viewer through how to apply the Dior makeup, which were uploaded to YouTube. The videos have received millions of views.

As Bella has signed over 14 endorsement deals, most of which are with designer brands such a Versace and Alexander Wang, these posts are sure to be a high income earner for the model. According to a research study done by Celebrity Intelligence in 2017, Hadid was the top celebrity endorser of that year, beating out Kendall Jenner and even her sister, Gigi.
Why Is She So Famous?
As Hadid grew up on a ranch in California, modelling wasn’t her first career choice. She became a competent equestrian and wished to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics, but being diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease kept her from accomplishing the dream. Luckily enough, Hadid had a pretty strong back up plan. The young model began he career modelling in 2013, when she was just 16 years old and she hit the floor running as she appeared in several fashion collections throughout the year, including collections by Hanna Hayes and Holly Copeland.
Her career catapulted in 2014 and received a ton of interest from a lot of fashion designers for her to model their collections. Then, in 2015, Hadid featured on the cover of Seventeen, and though it wasn’t her first cover shoot, it was the one that would get her the most exposure up to this point in her career. Her popularity would continue to rise, featuring on the cover of more celebrated fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle, V Magazine, and Editorialist to name a few. Besides being featured on seemingly every single magazine cover ever, the esteemed model has worked with huge designers for not only catwalks, but for red carpet events too. Some of the designers include Givenchy, Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander Wang, and Hadid even became a Victoria’s Secret Model, also known as an “angel”.
Hadid has gained a wider audience for her appearances in several reality shows such as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and most notably on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as she is a close friend of the Jenner and Kardashian family. The model has also starred in music videos for songs by The Weeknd as she was once romantically involved with the singer, infamously known for their very public on-again, off-again relationship.
What Makes Her So Successful?
As the name Hadid was all ready well established in the fashion industry years before Bella became well known thanks to her sister, it was easy for her to slide her way in to the industry. However, Hadid dyed her hair jet black, a look that has now become iconic, just to escape being tied to her sister and living in her shadow. Not only her hair, but What separates Bella from other models is her unique ethnicity, with her mother being Dutch and her father being Palestinian, her beauty is unrivaled in the fashion industry.
On top of that, the model is continuously working, being extremely goal oriented and having little down time to herself. Hadid has claimed that because she is so busy, she works as soon as she gets off flights, as she regularly flies between New York, Paris, Cannes, and other major cities known for their fashion. Thanks to her unique beauty and being such a workaholic, Bella became the youngest ever model to become an Angel, a Victoria’s Secret Model, which is one of the highest paying modelling roles in the industry. It is known that any model who features on the Forbes list of highest paid models are either Angels or former Angels.
The model has become one of the world’s highest earning social media influencers, signing endorsement deals thanks to her millions of Twitter and Instagram followers, and is the face of several high-class fashion brands. Bella Hadid might have been born in to extreme wealth and has led a lavish lifestyle long before she became a prominent figure in the fashion industry, but most of Bella Hadid’s success and wealth can be attributed to her sheer hard work and non-stop traveling. This is why Hadid is sitting on a comfortable estimated net worth of $25 million.
