Bella Hadid Proves That Fashion Can Be Used To Send A Message — PHOTOS
If their is one person who can turn a trend on its head, it’s Bella Hadid. From rocking a sports bra as a top to her latest fashion venture into monogrammed clothing, it seems as though there is nothing this Hadid can’t pull off. Bella Hadid’s monogrammed swimsuit that she wore in California on Apr. 23 for sister Gigi Hadid’s 21st birthday celebration, while super classic, definitely sent a message.
Instead of sporting her own monogrammed initials or name as is usual in namesake clothing and accessories, Hadid gave a shout-out to her sis with a golden emblazoned “Gigi” on her suit. In her 'gram of the look, she captioned an image of herself wearing the one-piece with "#1 Fan." Although this is not the monogram I am accustomed to seeing, I think Hadid's twist on old-fashioned embroidery might just become a trend for summer 2016.
Since most people wear monograms sporting their own name or initials, Hadid's act of sisterly love felt like a fun interpretation of the trend, and the fact that she monogrammed a swimsuit is even cooler. For a day at the beach, Hadid paired her black and gold monogrammed one-piece with a pair of black denim cut offs and simple hair. The 19-year-old model and music video vixen looked like a bathing beauty while she repped her family pride.
