    not disagreeing that these girls are pretty average (their potentiality is debatable at this point considering they are so inconsistent with diet, etc.), but definitely feel as though their industry/ personal connections are really what have controlled and defined their level of fame/ "celebrity" not their level of mediocrity. Their social media presence is just enough to pique people's interest due to who they are dating or what Kardashian they are hanging out with this week. Companies pay big money for that sort of marketing and anticipate at this point them drawing in people more as social "influencers" disguised as "supermodels" ( a term that is ridiculously thrown around these days btw) because they are on the massive payroll of IMG. I'm sure there are people that disagree, but the Hadid's have an understanding of this and have worked PR to their ultimate benefit in order for people to think that they randomly achieved their level of popularity.

    Ahh man I actually love the way Gigi looks here, so young and fresh and glowy. I mean not everyone HAS to look edgy and high fashion, why does she try so hard.

    Bella, well... just a regular girl, I'd probably not even think this is Bella Hadid if I hadn't seen other old photos of her

    I may be in the minority but Gigi doesn't bother me in the least, when shes in her lane. She is beautiful without a tremendous amount of work. And her interviews etc (I know people who have worked and/or interacted with her) are pretty spot on and genuine to her personality. She's smart and engaging and charismatic and she works. I think THAT is her appeal. But she also had the advantage from birth... so there's the nepotism. When she's proper catwalk ready I don't mind her at Versace or Chanel (but I also hate Chanel so...) but I think VS, Guess, Hilfiger, Moschino, and the like (plus the sports shit) are perfectly suited to her. She's relatable ... and very very fucking American princess dream.

    Bella I have different feelings about.

    Bella's never been as pretty as Gigi, I think she always grew up in the shadow of her more affable older sister. They've obviously both had work done, but I think only Bella's had so much as to make her completely unrecognisable.

    In almost every way I think Bella is jealous of Gigi- Gigi is a bit more successful, her (long) list of boyfriends have been more handsome/famous than any Bella's, and she's thrown Gigi under the bus plenty of times when things didn't go her way (take the Victoria's Secret fashion show in China).

    i know it’s been addressed a billion and one times already, but in case anyone’s still interested, bella’s legs look pretty tiny here. can’t say the same about those arms though :slinkout:

    I mean yes but also if she bends her back any more to get legs further from the camera, it might snap

    To alternatives: 1) the plastic in her face is dissolving, or 2) she's finally responding to the massive amounts of criticism voiced over the entirety of her career, and starting to show some emotion. Either way I don't hate it.

    She really looks so much older than she is. That being said, I've never really hated her face and I like a "mature" look but... a mature face is oftentimes atop the body of a mature woman. She is so young and I have a feeling that she's going to age quite poorly.

    I like the picture where she smiles...
    Another plus: we are spared from that horrendous body

    Not sure about you guys, but I find Gigi a lot more tolerable (as a person and as a model) when she's doing something good:

    Shit like this is why I like Gigi better. She just seems to be a better person, Bella comes off as very petty.

    Definitely like Gigi better as a person and even a model, which is a real shame for me personally because I think Bella's face is more high fashion (however plastic it may be). Even though neither of them is really my cup of tea, I saw on Instagram that Gigi made some statement (before the Kendall controversy) about the upper hand she has in modeling due to her privileged background which gives me a little respect for her. At least she acknowledges that she didn't have to work as hard as everyone else but wants to do better.

    Anyway, here's new Bella for Pop Magazine's September issue by Charlotte Wales.

    Gisele though :bow:
    Sorry Bella but when placed into comparison with Gisele, I can only see how far away you are from the real deal.

    I hate that editorial... and it's not even Bella. Except for the hair and makeup everything from set, to styling, and posing feels forced, and cheap... more like a photography student's project than a published ed.

    Agreed- bodywise and facewise Bella has the right look for the shoot (or at least she does when you contrast her with the average people in the photos, she looks dramatic and modelesque in a 90's supermodel kind of way) but her posing is NOT right for this at all. Her face doesn't look plastic or lifeless enough to pull off the "sculpture" look. It's completely wrong, it looks like she's posing for a magazine cover headshot or some kind of action shot in an editorial. Also, the spectators aren't plainly enough dressed, plus they all have different facial expressions so they sometimes take attention away from Bella. Just generally a bad shoot and it seemed like no one really knew what they were going for.

    Which is a shame, since with a better model this would be a very compelling spread.

    Thankfully, a better version with a better model already exists:)

    Oh, to clarify- I meant an updated version. I think the interest could come from the social commentary, specifically on gender or sexuality. I'd really love to see a trans model here, or a more gender ambiguous model (Madison Paige and Tamy Glauser come to mind).

    OMG! YES! This would've been so much more interesting and impactful with that sort of casting. Grace Oslo also comes to mind.

    Somebody tell Diet Prada! This is exactly the kind of gold that would be mocked for ages.

    Also, does anyone else feel that Bella's 'poses' have come straight from Coco Rocha's coffee table book? Bella just looks so lifeless that she looks like a static, plasticine model rather than an actual person who (should) be actively moving and alive? The difference between her and Gisele is astounding.
