Bella Hadid Covers 'Unconditional' In Minimal Makeup And Insanely Elegant Slicked Back Hair
The minimal makeup magazine cover trend continues. Model Bella Hadid covers Unconditional rocking a no-makeup look and wearing her hair slicked back and off her face. I almost didn't recognize her bare visage, even though Gigi's little sister often wears her dark hair pulled back tightly and center-parted. That's her signature, it seems.
Hadid's minimal makeup look for the black and white cover of the Spring/Summer 2015 issue was insanely elegant and the criss-crossed halter neck of her black dress elongated her swan-like neck. With her head tilted, notice how Hadid, who was a glamazon while walking for Tom Ford earlier this year, is pressing her fingers into her cheek. There's something so effortlessly elegant and irreverently imperfect about her pose.
I think the most striking thing about Bella's Unconditional cover is the soulfulness of her eyes. I can't help but wonder why she is so lost in thought. Her eyes are free of liner and shadow, so nothing gets in the way of (or even enhances) her expression. It's simple and unfettered.
Hadid is 18, turning 19 in October, but she's presented as a lovely, poised adult with this cover.
Unconditional aspires to be more than a fashion magazine. It focuses on artistic, creative, and passionate people. The cover image captures the simplicity of that goal.
