So THIS Is Why Bella Never Smiles

Bella Hadid's mirror selfie with no smile

If you’re like us and follow the Hadid sisters’ every move, you may have noticed this minor detail: Bella’s smile—or in better terms—lack thereof. We recently found out (via The Guardian) why the supermodel rarely flashes her pearly whites in pictures, and the reasoning is something that hits pretty close to home for all of us. “People meet me sometimes and say: ‘You’re so different to what I expected.’ People always tell me I seem mean or intimidating on social media. But I really like meeting new people,” she tells the British paper. “I feel uncomfortable sometimes smiling in front of the camera. It actually took me until probably this year to really understand my face.”

Seems like she’s in the same company as Victoria Beckham—who even poked fun at herself for not cheesin’ it up more in pictures—and quite frankly, ourselves. It’s somewhat comforting to know that Bella is just like the rest of us and experiences the same insecurities about her facial features. Here’s to hoping she’ll find some peace of mind in knowing that she’s beautiful no matter the angle.
