PARIS, France – Supermodel Bella Hadid has confessed that she regrets having a nose job as a teenager.
Gracing the cover of American Vogue’s April issue, the supermodel said she wished she had not gone under the knife at 14.
‘I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors’, she said. ‘I think I would have grown into it’.
Hadid has been accused of having had numerous other procedures, the magazine wrote, but the 25 – year – old denies this.
‘People always have something to say, but what I have to say is, I’ve always been misunderstood in my industry and by the people around me’.
Hadid opened up about her mental health in an Instagram post in November last year. Alongside a series of tearful selfies, she wrote: ‘I’ve enough breakdowns and burnouts to known this: if you work hard enough on yourself, spending time alone to understand your traumas, triggers, joys, and routine, you will always be able to understand or learn mor about your own pain and how to handle it’.
The new Vogue interview details the ‘bournout’ Hadid says she experienced last year, which led her to a treatment program involving medication and talk therapy. ‘There were people online saying. ‘You ive this amazing life’, she said. ‘So then how can I complain? I always felt that I didn’t have the right to complain, which meant that I didn’t have the right to get help, which was my first problem’.
While she alludes to ‘multiple childhood traumas’, it is clear the pressures of working in the fashion industry have taken their toll.
