Bella Hadid Nails NYC Street Style

See all of her greatest style moments...

One half of modelling’s most famous sister act (and part of one of Hollywood’s most famous families), Bella Hadid is one stylish lady. Finding modelling fame when she was signed with IMG in 2014, Bella made her catwalk debut the same year at NYFW. She’s gone on to open shows in Paris, Milan and London and walk for designers including, deep breath, Diane von Fürstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs, Topshop Unique, Giles, Moschino, Missoni, Bottega Veneta, Balmain, Chanel and more.

Her fashion credentials don’t end there. She’s starred in editorials for ELLE, Teen Vogue and Harpers Bazaar to name a few, and big ad campaigns for Balmain, Topshop and Victoria’s Secret. It seems planet fashion can’t get enough of the younger Hadid sister.

When it comes to her own personal style, the 20 year old keeps getting better and better. Favouring a more edgy and experimental look to her sister, Bella is a big fan of all-black-everything and a more rock and roll aesthetic. Sportswear pieces take up a large part of her wardrobe but she is never afraid to up the glamour stakes when it comes to red carpet style.

Off-duty Bella never puts a sartorial foot wrong - even if she is just running errands or popping to a gym class. Queen of the luxe athleisure look, Bella is a big supporter of retro sportswear from Adidas trackies to Nike kicks and Tommy Hilfiger sweats . Much like her older sister, Bella is regularly photographed in the paparazzi beating combo of baseball cap and oversized sunnies. After all, you’ve always got to be prepared.

Her dressed up off-duty look is just as stylish. Bella is partial to an ‘I’m with the band look’ and s often spotted in on-trend denim pieces, leather and vintage tour t-shirts. As always accessorised with skyscraper heels or her favourite thigh high boots and a designer bag.

On the red carpet her style is more sultry than Gigi's girl- next-door look. Bella is not afraid to show off her amazing figure and is a big fan of plunging, leg-flashing gowns. Who can forget when she upstaged everyone in that scarlet gown at Cannes? And of course there was also her ELLE Style Awards leotard and thigh high boots combo.

Over the past year, Bella Hadid has expertly honed her impressive and unique sense of style - perhaps starting when she cut her long brunette locks into a bob. Each and every ensemble she steps out in surpasses her last, arguably even outdoing her sister Gigi’s unbeatable style (though we are sure this can be debated). She has redefined ‘model-off-duty’ style, and her latest New York City outfits prove this.

After hitting up London with best friend Kendall Jenner, Bella landed back on US turf. With her hair even shorter (often a dramatic hair transformation correlates with a style one) the gamine beauty has continued to flaunt her eclectic style and it is impossible to pigeonhole.

One thing Bella is great at is touching on trends but putting a spin on them. For example, polka dot wrap tea dresses are everywhere, but Bella wears hers with thigh splits, heeled Dr. Martens, a studded belt and a headband. The finished is genre-, gender- and decade-bending.

When out-and-about in NYC, she wore white ripped jeans and a simple white tank top with her hair messy and natural – the meaning of simple but effective. Not forgetting she is seldom seen without shades - mostly of the smaller size and often tinted.

More recently, Bella was seen wearing a deconstructed, backless, cropped shirt with bow detail, paired with baggy low rise jeans and trainers. She also had a hair piece in to give her a long pony tail. Every element of her outfit shouldn’t work, but it absolutely does.
