Less is more in this case, proves model Bella Hadid

The corps of photographers at the Cannes Film Festival is used to seeing a lot of skin. As far back as the 1960s, unknown starlets tried to shortcut their way to fame by frolicking topless before the army of shutters. But model Bella Hadid’s trip down the red carpet on was on a completely different level.

Hadid, a high-fashion model from a wealthy family, loosely draped a creation by French designer Alexandre Vauthier over her 19-year-old physique and struggled mightily to keep it from revealing what little was left to the imagination on her way into a film premiere.
