Bella Hadid probably can’t go one day without someone saying to her, “Bring yourself back online,” because they mistake her for a Westworld host in sleep mode. Bella told Paper that she knows people think that she makes Kristen Stewart look like a sparkling geyser of bubbly excitement. So Bella was excited about her Paper shoot, because she couldn’t wait to show the people that her face has the ability to contort out of the “comatose porcelain doll” position. Paper did Bella up like a malnourished Xtina crossed with a sugar-less Brooke Candy (Brooke Stevia?) and held on to the sturdies thing in the studio before she nearly knock them on their faces by delivering a high-powered roller coaster of emotions with her facial expressions.
Hadid has, perhaps unfairly, been cast by the media and fashion world as the mysterious, sullen sister, the Veronica to bubbly, blonde Gigi’s Betty. And although Hadid has perfected an intense gaze and pout that remind many of a young Carla Bruni, away from the camera she’s all smiles, laughter and kinetic energy. “People say that I don’t smile, or that I don’t have a personality,” she says, before expressing her excitement over getting to show a new side of herself in the photos that accompany this story.
Below are the NSFW-esque (but is a pierced nipple knob really NSFW?) pictures of Bella showing all seven hundred layers of her personality. These pictures will finally shut the haters up and what I mean by that is that they’ll be unable to talk shit after they pass out from all of the different kinds of facial expressions that Bella hits them with.
And really, Bella Hadid has never looked more glamorous, and I’m only saying that because she looks like Miss Fame as a new money Tank Girl.
