Bella Hadid Has to Practice Smiling Because She Struggles With It
Bella Hadid is a great model, but a casual scroll through her Instagram will show that smiling is not something she does often.
While we believe that women should never be forced to smile if they donâ€™t want to, when youâ€™re walking in the Victoriaâ€™s Secret fashion show, you donâ€™t really have a choice.
Thatâ€™s just what you do.
You smile, you blow kisses to the crowd and you look like youâ€™re having the time of your life dressed as a sexy shrub, or a sexy engineer, or whatever sexy thing you get dressed like.
But while smiling is a move that most of us have down by the time weâ€™re two, itâ€™s an act that Bella Hadid still struggles with.
â€œI am not a very good smiler on cue. I have to practice that a lot,â€ Bella told People. â€œI have to close my best friend and roommateâ€™s door and put a big mirror in front of it so she canâ€™t get out of her room so that I have a part of the apartment to walk and practice. Itâ€™s perfect for me, but she canâ€™t really get out of her room.â€
Details. She continues in Zoolander-esque fashion:
â€œOn the runway for high fashion you just donâ€™t really think. You just walk and itâ€™s an everyday thing. You do so many shows a day that itâ€™s kind of youâ€™re showing off the clothesâ€¦ [The Victoriaâ€™s Secret Fashion Show] is about personality. Itâ€™s about the lingerie, but you also have to keep a smile on your face. You have to interact. Itâ€™s a different experience than I am really used to.â€
Youâ€™re one in a million.
