Bella Hadid, who stepped into the modelling industry as Gigi Hadid's sister, carved her own niche as a model after taking up several assignments and walking the ramp for eminent designers like Versace and Ralph Lauren.
Hadid who has previously made several red carpet appearances, walked at the famous Palais des Festivals red carpet on Wednesday looking breathtakingly glamorous. She stole the show with her high-fashion sass and old-school Hollywood glamour.
The 20-year-old model sported a strapless, soft pink Alexandre Vauthier silk gown with a bold plunging sweetheart neckline and a risque thigh-high split. She teamed her outfit with a diamond Bulgari statement neckpiece and a ring and spot on Dior makeup, including a winged eyeliner, to complete the look. The design of the ensemble allowed the model to flash a tantalising amount of decolletage.
Hadid had no inhibitions in showing off her well-toned, sexy body and she did a great job at pulling off the outfit with a great deal of confidence and panache although, she suffered a minor wardrobe malfunction at the event when she mistakenly flashed her nude color underwear.
And although it took for her sometime to react, she moved on, brushing off the incident as if nothing had happened. Overall, Hadid's look was a huge thumbs up.
At the event, Hadid's fellow model Emily Ratajkowski turned heads as she showed up in slinky satin slip gown, courtesy Twin Set by Simona Barbieri. The backless outfit featured thigh-high slit and the model-turned-actress paired the stunning ensemble with matching heels and colourful jewels by Bulgari to finish off the look.
