Bella Hadid is arguably one of the most famous models in the world. She was named ‘Model of the Year’ in 2016 for Models.com. Given her status as an in-demand model, Hadid has to do a lot of traveling.
Imagine if you had to go to Paris to walk the Balenciaga Runway and you lost your passport! That is what happened to Bella Hadid recently.
Bella Hadid shared her ordeal in an Instagram post. In the post, the supermodel is seen posing at the top of balcony rails with all-reflective pair of shades on. She played with her black windbreaker jacket as she lifted it over her head for the picture.
In the caption of the picture, Hadid shortly explained that she lost her passport just as she was about to fly out to Paris. She resides in a penthouse in New York City. After she could not trace her passport, which is essential if you are flying out of the country, she tried to get another one.
Although an expedited passport takes anywhere between 5 to 7 weeks to process int he USA, Hadid was able to pull some strings and got her passport in time.
She wrote in her caption that she “landed at 530 am”. From there, she went for a shoot at 7 am and then “show at 12”. Hadid ended the post by saying that she “made it by the skin of my teeth”.
Balenciaga Runway Walk
Bella Hadid is a professional and she did not let the ordeal upset or throw her off. She got right to work and fulfilled her commitments like a professional would.
Hadid was among the many famous faces at the Paris Couture Week. She was one of the celebrities tapped by Demna’s second couture show for Balenciaga.
She wore an elegant green satin strapless evening gown. It had a bow and a modern puffed bustle at the waist. Hadid also wore long black gloves that almost touched her shoulders. Her look was completed with winged eyeliner while the neatly tied hair bun complimented the look.
Familiar Faces On The Runway
Some of the other familiar faces on the runway included the likes of Kim Kardashian, Dua Lipa, Nicole Kidman, and Naomi Campbell.
Kidman wore a reflective silver dress with a long train, while singer and Grammy winner Dua Lipa wore a one-shoulder vibrant and bright yellow minidress featuring a long train.
Some of the familiar faces in the audience included Kris Jenner, and Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West. Offset, Alexa Demie and many others were also present.
Demna is known to make an impact with his runway collection and this time was no different. In his spring 2022 runway show, The Simpsons debuted in a 10-minute episode where they walked in his Balenciaga outfits.
An integral part of a successful fashion show is the models who carry the innovation to showcase it to the world. Bella Hadid almost missed being a part of Demna’s second couture show for Balenciaga, but all is well that ends well. We hope Bella Hadid will be keeping her passport safely from now on.
