Bella Hadid is the model of the moment.
The 18-year-old beauty appears on the cover of the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of Editorialist magazine, on newsstands Friday. E! News was given an exclusive first look at the model's photo shoot and cover story. Bella isn't the only model in her family, of course, as her sister, Gigi Hadid, 20, is also beloved in the fashion world. When the siblings get to work together, it's a bonus. "During one shoot, we literally sang Broadway songs the whole time," Bella recalls. Modeling can be fun, of course, but much like her mother, former model an current Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Yolanda Hadid, Bella takes work seriously. "I've always been really hard on myself," she says of facing rejection. "If I didn't book a job, I would cry."
Bella shifted her perspective with her sister's support.
"Gigi really helped me," she explains. "She would say, 'It's not about you.'"
Yolanda couldn't be prouder of what her daughters have achieved. "My mom and I were Facetiming the other day and she said, 'It's so crazy how much you've done in such a short time that others don't get to do in a lifetime.' It was a really gratifying moment because I look up to her so much and since I've started modeling, it hit me," Bella tells Editorialist. "I love this and I want to do it for a really long time."
Fashion designer Prabal Gurung is enamored by Bella's beauty and unique look, telling the magazine, "What I find so intoxicating about her look is her ability to balance utter femininity with a modern edge."
Part of being a successful model means having a large social media following. Bella, who is dating The Weeknd, says, "I used to post a lot of me and my friends but it got really personal. Now I just try to base it off of work." Having an online presence is "a big part" of her job. "Back in the day, you really had to hustle, but these days you don't need a portfolio. You can just look up someone's Instagram."
Fans aren't likely to find photos of Bella being wild and crazy, though. "People think because I say I'm the black sheep that I'm a rebel or this crazy person that does drugs. I promise I'm a good girl. I never do drugs. I literally order sushi, watch Law & Order and go to sleep at 9 o'clock every night," she reveals. "I'm a grandmother."
Editorialist is on newsstands nationwide Friday.
