In Bella Hadid’s latest Instagram video, she strikes a pose in a racy one-piece. The short Boomerang clip, which she recorded herself in a mirror, seems like a response to Selena Gomez’s recent thong shot. The unusually revealing shot of Gomez was posted to Instagram by photographer Mert Alas, but has since been deleted.
In Hadid’s photo caption, she sends “love and light to you all,” but it seems unlikely that includes Gomez, who Hadid unfollowed on Instagram earlier this week. Hadid no doubt saw the paparazzi pics taken on Tuesday that caught her ex The Weeknd kissing Gomez outside an Italian restaurant. Hadid and The Weeknd broke up in November after dating for almost two years.
While some fans seem to think Gomez is breaking the “girl code” by dating The Weeknd because she’s friends with Hadid’s older sister, Gigi, that’s a matter of debate. It’s a debate that’s currently raging in the comments of Gomez’s Instagram photos, where some commenters are posting long strings of snake emojis and others are showering her in hearts.
Amid all the controversy, a new trend has emerged on Hadid’s Instagram. This new swimsuit shot is the third recent photo in which she has posed with her left arm raised to her head. It’s a beautiful arm, and if flaunting it makes her happy during this trying time, we hope she’ll continue to do so.
