Bella Hadid is having a winning season—she’s starred in nearly every other ad campaign and walked in back-to-back shows during NYFW—but despite her accomplishments, she hasn’t let the success get to her head. The model got emotional when she recently walked the for two designers this season.
The first was Prabal Gurung on Sunday. The presentation was already emotional to begin with, as the finale served as a touching and much-needed feminist tribute. Models marched in tees with empowering political slogans, like “The Future is Female” (seen on Hadid), “I Am an Immigrant” and “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like” (worn by Gurung himself).
“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 told Fashionista. “Everybody in the audience was crying during the finale; it was really, really powerful and I’m really proud of him. It was incredible.”
“Thank you P for a beautiful collection and such an empowering show,” she shouted out to the designer on Instagram.
“I just started crying because it was such a beautiful, moving show.”
The following day, Hadid made another monumental runway appearance when she closed the Oscar de la Renta show. The model revealed that she got sentimental for this presentation, too.
“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. It’s such an iconic brand and I’ve always looked up to the designers. I cried when I got the show in general, and then when I heard I was closing, I was at a loss for words,” she said.
“[That dress] was so beautiful; when I first tried it on, it was so incredible,” the model added.
