Bella Hadid has opened up about the plastic surgery she had as a teenager. In an interview with Vogue, the supermodel - now 25 - revealed that she had a nose job aged 14, but she now regrets the decision, saying: 'I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors. I think I would have grown into it.'
Now, many people are questioning whether Bella's mum, Yolanda, should have allowed her teenage daughter to have the procedure. Yolonda, a former model and start of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is known for being brutally honest with both Bella and her sister Gigi. In one clip of the reality show, Yolanda gives dieting advice to her young daughters (advising them to eat two almonds if they feel hungry) and discouraged a then 17-year-old Gigi from playing volleyball as it could make her 'bulky'.
Many people took to Twitter to air their views, accusing Yolanda of 'breeding insecurities' in her daughters and criticising her parenting.
In the interview, Bella also opened up about feeling she was in Gigi's shadow when they were growing up. 'I was the uglier sister. I was the brunette. I wasn’t as cool as Gigi, not as outgoing. That’s really what people said about me. And unfortunately, when you get told things so many times, you do just believe it.'
She also opened up about the insecurities that plagued her when she was younger. 'I always ask myself, how did a girl with incredible insecurities, anxiety, depression, body-image issues, eating issues, who hates to be touched, who has intense social anxiety - what was I doing getting into this business? But over the years I became a good actress.'
Yolanda has not yet commented on Bella's interview or responded to any of the online criticism about her.
