Bella Hadid has been turning heads during her time in Cannes this past week, and the model wore one of her most bold looks to the amfAR gala on Thursday. The 20-year-old stole the spotlight in a sheer gown that showcased her long legs and lithe figure — and fans loved it.
Hadid posted several photos to her Instagram account showing the daring look, and her followers expressed their support of the sheer dress. One red carpet post received over 790,000 likes in two days as people told Bella she’s “beautiful.” Fans also told the model they found the gown to be stunning.
“That dress is so stunning and gorgeous.”
The Daily Mail reported on Bella’s bold see-through dress as the site stated she “flashed far too much” while on the gala’s red carpet.
“Leading the way with the saucy ensembles was Bella Hadid who flashed slightly too much in a perilously slashed gown…”
The article also included a side view of Bella’s daring gown as it flaunted her bare legs as it stated the intricate details did little to cover her figure.
“The 20-year-old supermodel looked phenomenal in a sheer white number adorned with intricate jeweled adornments, yet the embellishment did nothing to protect her bare bust while the slashed leg gave a glimpse of her entire frame.”
Daily Mail continued on to say Hadid’s sheer gown isn’t the first time she showcased her figure at Cannes. In 2016, she won over fans with a notable red dress. However, the dress may have shown off more than Bella had bargained for as she once again flashed the audience.
“Last year, Bella stole the show at the Unknown Girl premiere on 18 May 2016 as she sported the red gown which showed off her endless legs, perky cleavage and ultimately her lingerie when she unwittingly flashed the world’s press.”
The site also stated Hadid found the daring gown to be a bit intimidating, but she loved hearing her fans rave over her 2016 Cannes look.
“She admitted after the appearance that wearing the gown was ‘a bit scary’ yet she was delighted to have ‘so much nice feedback which was exciting.'”
While Bella clearly has a history of wearing bold attire, some Daily Mail readers criticized her latest Cannes look as they commented on the article. Some commenters questioned why celebrities even feel the need to wear dresses as they show off more than a bit of skin.
“Why do they even bother to get dressed?!”
Another reader referred to Bella and other female stars, such as Nicki Minaj, attending the amfAR gala as “average.”
“They’re all overrated and average.”
However, one commenter didn’t hold back as they expressed their opinion (and fear) of the new fashion era as celebs continue to wear sheer styles.
“Are we back to the 80’s when people dressed horribly? The difference is that now they go nearly naked. I hope there won’t be an era where people go naked and send stupid messages like ’embrace your nature.'”
But Hadid has no reason to worry as it’s obvious her 13.2 million followers love her sense of style and don’t mind when she wears sheer looks. In fact, the young model followed her Thursday post with another sheer outfit as she posed in front of a helicopter.
This time, Bella flaunted her toned stomach as she wore mesh pants with a matching crop-top, and her fans once again came through with positive feedback. The post received over 715,000 likes in just 24 hours as Hadid’s supporters rallied around her “no filter” photo. Her fans echoed similar sentiments as they called her “beautiful” and left fire emojis in the comment section.
One fan even stated Bella is showing ex-boyfriend The Weeknd what he’s missing as she flaunts her fit model figure in Cannes and on Instagram.
“Showing The Weeknd what he’s missing!!”
