NSFW Trash Watch — Bella Hadid Hates Bras


Looking like a high-priced Scandinavian escort on a revenge mission, “model” Bella Hadid made a splash at the Alexandre Vauthier show at Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris last week.

Apparently she forgot something. Or not.

The less appealing alternative to Gigi, 20, marched down the runway like a Nazi , showcasing her high cheekbones, thick makeup and very visible nipples and breasts.

I’m not complaining too much. Bella is turning out to be an attractive young lady in a Russian-whore-at-sugar-daddy’s-funeral type of way. But can someone please get her a bra? It won’t be long before those things hit her knees at this rate.
