    About Bella Hadid

    Model Isabella “Bella” Hadid was born October 6, 1996, the daughter of model and Real Housewife Yolanda Hadid Foster and real estate developer Mohammed Hadid. She has an older sister Gigi, who is also a model, and a younger brother Anwar. Her parents divorced when she was a child, and her mother got remarried to Grammy-winning music producer David Foster.

    Bella was an athletic child with a love of both surfing and horseback riding. She started competing in equestrian events at age three, won numerous competitions throughout her teens, and became nationally ranked. Still an active equestrian, she hopes to compete in the 2016 Olympics.

    “It taught me a lot about responsibility. You’re up at 5:30 a.m. caring for and riding a huge animal,” Bella told Teen Vogue. “I would be at horse shows by myself for weeks, and I had to make sure I was on my game at all times.”

    In addition to her equestrian pursuits, Bella has a love of photography, which started when she was seven. She moved to New York in the summer of 2014 to pursue a photography degree at The New School’s Parsons School of Design, and while working behind the camera she also got recruited to do more work in front of the camera.

    “There wasn’t really one time in my life where I was like, ’I want to be a model!’ It was more Gigi’s thing,” Bella told Teen Vogue. “I do like being in front of the camera more and more. Having experience behind it has taught me about lighting and angles, how to move, and what looks good and what doesn’t.”

    Bella signed a contract with IMG modeling in 2014. She quickly found success doing work for Tom Ford, Balmain, and Botkier as well as appearing in magazines like Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. She and sister Gigi did spreads together for 2015 issues of Love and V magazines.

    In addition to modeling, Bella enjoys documenting her adventures on social media and has gained a huge following there. She has more than 1 million followers on Instagram.
