When the modelling and social influencer world is not enough...what to do? Bella Hadid is the latest Insta-girl to turn her hand to photography
It seems for the youngest generation of millennials, it's not enough to master one skill. A few months ago, we noted how Kendall Jenner and Brooklyn Beckham were toying with amateur photography, with Brooklyn even shooting a fragrance campaign for Burberry. Unsurprisingly, they're not the only ones to express an interest in fashion photography - because now Bella Hadid is the latest It-kid to pick up a camera.
In a series of portraits for top fashion title W, Bella shoots a subject close to her heart: family friend Jesse Jo Stark and her mother Laurie Lynn. Best buds with Bella and Gigi since childhood, Jesse Jo is heir to the Richard Stark-founded label Chrome Hearts and circulates in that specific LA universe made up of reality TV stars (the Kardashian/Jenners), Real Housewives (the Hadids) models (Cindy Crawford's Gerber) and music legends (the Richies). Yep, she's exactly part of the young Hollywood kids that include Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Sofia Richie.
The LA clique, which provide the world with endlessly titillating tabloid fodder, is the inadvertent subject of this exclusive shoot, video and story. As Jesse Jo explains her lifestyle, fashion legacy and friendship circle, posing next to mother Laurie Lynn (a photographer herself), you can see where the family fit into the LA scene. As for Bella's new hobby? We guess when you're this well-connected, anything's possible.
