Bella Hadid is the August cover girl, she was styled by Alex White and Véronique Hyland penned the interview, while Bella’s big sis Gigi Hadid took the images using her iPhone 11. Here are a couple of our favorite pull quotes from the story.


On the importance of using her platform for good:

“I have so much responsibility to use my platform for good, especially as I get older. I want young girls and boys to know that it is okay to use your voice and demand justice for what is important to you. Horrible tragedies happen worldwide on a daily basis, and I have a responsibility to speak up for the people who are not being heard or don’t have a platform. One post can educate a lot of people, and most of the time, what I write resonates with my followers and they realize that they are not alone. If I am passionate about something, I will talk about it, and talk and talk and talk. For me, it’s not about losing followers or gaining followers, it’s about educating people and giving a platform to the voices that need to be heard.”

It’s great to hear her talk about the importance of using her platform responsibly.


On where the fashion industry needs to change in terms of diversity and inclusion:

“Going into the next season, my fear is having to see another one of my Black girlfriends get her hair burned by a hair straightener, or do her own makeup because the makeup artist hasn’t been trained to work with all different skin types. I hate that some of my Black friends feel the way they do. Even if they’re sitting front row, they’re not feeling accepted. Our industry is supposed to be about expression and individuality, but the reality is that [many people] still discriminate because of exactly [those differences].”

Now THIS is how you know she actually has black friends — because these are some real examples. Keep using your voice Bella and keep pushing for inclusion.
