If you're Bella Hadid, you don't have to look very far for a modeling mentor. Her mom, Yolanda Hadid, was, of course, a successful model back in the day. So, when she offers up some advice on what to do when the camera bulbs start flashing, you might want to take her advice.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

"My mom always taught me to think about something happy when I'm working, because it kind of shows through your face," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills daughter told Elle magazine. "I used to think about my horses, but now I think about other things."

What are you thinking about, Bella?

While those other things remain a bit of a mystery, she did offer some insight into her romantic relationship with The Weeknd, who she has worked with on a couple of his music videos. "I love seeing him happy and passionate about his art," she said. "Being able to see how he works, and put both of our workplaces together, turned out to be really beautiful."

Speaking of the famous people in Bella's life, she addressed what it was like growing up a middle child, between fellow models Gigi and Anwar. "I am definitely the typical middle child," she noted. "I love making sure everybody around me is happy, peaceful, and satisfied."

The Elle issue featuring Bella on the cover hits newsstands on May 17.
