Most of the times that the famous American model has appeared on the red carpet of the Cannes Festival, she has done so with daring looks, such as her appearance at the 74th edition, which was the first to be held after the pandemic. For this occasion, Bella, who has paraded for Victoria’s Secret, used a long-sleeved black dress from the Schiaparelli brand, however, the special thing about the outfit is the neckline, since the only thing that covered her chest was a huge golden necklace that for some people simulated a tree and for others it was an allusion to the lungs of the human body.
Due to the attention she got with this accessory, Bella Hadid decided to style the dress with black strappy heels, her classic ‘clean look’, that is, makeup in neutral colors and a hairstyle completely collected in a bun, in addition to arts and discreet rings.
