Rising model Bella Hadid makes a vivid impression in 'It's Her Time' lensed by Nathaniel Goldberg for Glamour Magazine US September 2016. Glamour writes:
Models, once pretty girls who silently walked the runway, are now bona fide personalities driving the cultural zeitgeist forward, one social media post at a time. Hadid, a prime example, is making a name for herself in andout of the fashion industry. She’s walking runways (Chanel, Fendi), landing campaigns (Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs), and inking major ambassador deals (Dior Beauty). But she’s also making headlines at Cannes for her own personal style, showing up on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, starring in a music video with Grammy-winning boyfriend the Weeknd, and racking up 5.3 million Instagram followers who come for #TBT photos of Hadid with model sister Gigi, among other things.
Hadid has done all of it while battling chronic Lyme disease, a debilitating illness her mom, Yolanda Foster, and brother, Anwar, also have. But Hadid wants to be defined by a career she can control, not by an illness she can’t. At a lobster joint nearby, we discussed her epic ascent.
