Bella Hadid Is Bold and Vintage in ‘Elle’

The “It Girl“ chats about her high-profile love life and her secret for the perfect photo.

Today, Elle released images from their white-hot photo shoot with Bella Hadid, as well as some quotes from her interview. Here’s what she had to say…

The beautiful up-and-comer admitted that she bares a lot of middle-kid traits, namely being a total a people-pleaser.

“I am definitely the typical middle child. I love making sure everybody around me is happy, peaceful, and satisfied.”

Also, here’s a little trick she uses to make sure she’s at her best for photo shoots: “My mom always taught me to think about something happy when I’m working, because it kind of shows through your face. I used to think about my horses, but now I think about other things.”

As for her romance with Canadian crooner The Weeknd, Hadid talked about the experience of collaborating on his music video for “In the Night.”

“I love seeing him happy and passionate about his art. Being able to see how he works, and put both of our workplaces together, turned out to be really beautiful.”
