Bella Hadid Causes Controversy At Cannes And Australia Fashion Week

Bella Hadid has been acting naughty at both the Cannes Film Festival and Australia Fashion Week. The aspiring model has been making headlines for what she’s been wearing or lack thereof.

The 19-year-old model was seen posing in a vibrant and daring number at the Martinez hotel in Cannes earlier this week. Bella Hadid put her bust on display in a bright green, yellow, baby blue, and black leotard with a plunging neckline. She paired her look with a baby blue ruffled skirt. Hadid risked nearly a wardrobe malfunction in Cannes, as she chose not to wear a bra.

The brunette beauty wasn’t the star of the show. It was a pair of brown hawks that landed near the photo shoot. The birds landed on the rooftop and flapped their wings at Bella and the crew. Bella covered her mouth and laughed along with her makeup artist and glam squad. It was a far cry from the reports that claimed Bella acted like a “brat” during her recent trip to Australia Fashion Week.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the model displayed a diva attitude once she touched down in the country. Hadid was reportedly not happy with her accommodations and asked to stay at the Old Flare, which costs a whopping $1,000 per night. The report claims that Hadid didn’t want to be disturbed by the preparations for the Sydney Morning Herald’s half marathon, which took place in Hyde Park on Sunday.

“Disruptions from the Half Marathon, booking it down the road to redeveloped hotel The Old Clare where she spent a night in the Penthouse – at a cost of over $1,000 for the night’s sleep.”

Additionally, Bella didn’t like the lack of security she was provided with since “it wasn’t as extensive” as her sister Gigi received on her last trip down under. Still, the $1,000-per-night price tag won’t hurt Bella’s wallet since the model was reportedly paid $400,000 to walk for the Misha Collective on Monday, May 16. Bella opened the show in a sexy black leotard and closed the show in a tan strapless dress paired with a matching trench coat.

The younger Hadid sister also stirred controversy on the runway when she walked to Beyonce’s song “Formation.” Despite receiving glowing reviews for her performance, Hadid caused social media outrage when she led a group of models down the runway as the song played.

The problem? There was not one woman of color in the show. Most fans took to IMG Models’ official Instagram page to exclaim their frustrations over the clip. “Formation” has become an empowering anthem for black women. The backlash also raised the important issue of diversity and equality that black women have been fighting for in the modeling industry for years.

According to the Fashion Spot, the models who walked the fall 2016 runways were 75.25 percent white, a slight improvement from the previous season when there were 77.6 percent white models.

Now back to Bella Hadid’s red carpet looks at Cannes. The model put on quite the display when she wore a pinstripe suit with a silver cleavage-baring fringe bustier at the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday. She complemented her sizzling look with dazzling jewelry, black strappy heels, and a slightly messy updo.

Then she faced another wardrobe malfunction when she slipped into a slinky red dress that featured a plunging neckline and dangerously high slit. The Daily Mail claims that Bella opted not to wear underwear for the event. When she made her red hot entrance at the La Fille Inconnue premiere, the slit revealed her matching pair of panties underneath. However, the panties were so high-cut that they exposed her crotch, making it look as if she wasn’t wearing any underwear at all.
