She may look superhuman, but Bella Hadid faces relatable obstacles when it comes to maintaining her ideal weight. The newly minted Victoria's Secret Angel recently opened up about getting in shape for the dream gig. And—surprise!—it took quite a bit of effort.
First, just imagine the pressure: Bella had to audition in her underwear. (It is a lingerie fashion show, after all. But still!) During her Victoria's Secret fitting, she told People: "I have lost and gained weight. My weight fluctuates so much."
Recently, Bella has committed to an intense regime that sees her working out three hours a day with Gotham Gym trainer Rob Piela. She's also stuck to a strict, protein-rich diet, and drinks as much water as she can. "I didn't mean to [lose weight]," she said. "Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault."
Bella's comments are especially interesting after the recent backlash against Nike for casting her in its latest campaign. Meryl Davis, a professional ice dancer, tweeted a remark that took aim at the sportswear giant for casting Bella and Kylie Jenner in its campaigns. "I'll take the [fashion] promoted by the athlete, please," she wrote.
As always, #proudmommy Yolanda Hadid has her daughter's back. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills activist posted a picture of her daughter expertly riding her horse Night Cap, underscoring her poing with the hashtag #athlete.
