It’s been an emotional Fashion Week for Bella Hadid. The 20-year-old supermodel told Fashionista that she’s cried not once, but twice on the runway this season.
First, there was Prabal Gurung’s political finale, where the designer and his models walked out wearing t-shirts printed with feminist and pro-immigrant slogans. “I went out and walked, and right before finale, when Prabal was about to go walk, I saw him tearing up and I just started crying because it was such a beautiful, moving show,” Hadid said. “Everybody in the audience was crying during the finale; it was really, really powerful and I’m really proud of him. It was incredible.”
The second time was Oscar de la Renta, which also included pro-immigration themes. Hadid closed the show wearing one of the design house’s classic black evening gowns. “I mean, literally, I also cried! I don’t know if it’s just a very emotional week, but that show has always been something really big to me,” she said. “It’s such an iconic brand and I’ve always looked up to the designers.”
