Clear up the confusion! While rumors and speculation about Bella Hadids plastic surgery has been whirling for years, the 25-year-old model has officially set the record straight.
In a Tuesday, March 15, interview with Vogue, the runway star confirmed that she had her nose done — at the age of 14 no less. “I wish I had kept my ancestors’ noses,” she told the publication. “I think I would have grown into it.”
Although Hadid fully acknowledges her nose job, she was keen to squash any rumors that she’s had an eye lift or lip filler. “People think I completely fucked my face because of a picture of me as a puffy teenager. I’m pretty sure you don’t look the same as you did when you were 13, ain’t- right?” the model explained.
She went on to say that she had “never” received filler either. Many people speculated that the star had her cheekbones filled in. “Let’s put an end to this. I don’t have a problem with it, but it’s not for me,” Hadid explained.
As for her eyes and eyebrows? She didn’t have any surgery either. Instead, her ripped-off appearance is the result of a good old-fashioned makeup hack. “Whoever thinks I’m looking up or whatever…it’s duct tape! Oldest trick in the book,” Hadid revealed.
The model, however, admitted that thinking about her looks was a big part of her childhood and affected her entry into the modeling industry, which was started by her older sister Gigi Hadid.
“I was the ugliest sister. I was the brunette. I wasn’t as cool as Gigi, not as outgoing,” she told the outlet. “That’s really what people were saying about me. And unfortunately, when you’re told things so many times, you just believe them.
The Dior Makeup ambassador, who has been open about her “insecurities, anxiety, depression, body image issues [and] eating disorders,” explained that she’s become a “good actress” to benefit her career.
“I put on a very smiling face, or a very strong face. I always felt like I had something to prove,” she said. “People can say anything about how I look, how I talk, how I act. But in seven years I’ve never missed a job, canceled a job, been late for work. No one will ever be able to say that I don’t work like crazy.
