Among the many great things that occur during the festive season – ‘sipping’ on your 5th glass of Processo with 10th mince pie the norm on a Wednesday evening high up there – it ‘tis the season to play dress up and embrace OTT beauty looks for party season.

J-Law is no longer sporting her signature lob. Emma Watson has turned to the dark side (dyeing her hair a deep brunette). But the latest celebrity to win in the hair transformation stakes this season has to be Bella Hadid.

Paper magazine revealed the youngest Hadid sister as their newest cover star, following in Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner’s footsteps.

And is anyone else getting serious Lady Gaga vibes?

For the magazine’s ‘Outspoken’ winter 2016 issue the 20-year-old VS model rocked a platinum blonde 'do, rainbow coloured lips (with rhinestones, naturally) and poison ivy-esque eye make-up.

While we’re used to Hadid sporting long, brunette locks and a bare-faced look, she revealed the special meaning behind her glam-gothover with her 8million Instagram followers...
