Arguably the more beautiful of the two Hadid sisters, Bella comes into her own with a new role with Dior makeup

It's a good thing Bella Hadid turned out drop dead gorgeous. With a name like Bella, there was quite a bit to live up to. The stunning 19-year old, younger sister of Gigi Hadid and current paramour of singer The Weeknd, steps firmly into the spotlight, with her exotic good looks put to perfect use as the face of a makeup brand.

Hadid most recently turned heads at the Cannes Film Festival in a revealing gown — still managing to look remarkably composed and elegant despite the winds threatening to cause a wardrobe malfunction. In her new role, she  will star in a series of videos, called "Dior Makeup Live with Bella Hadid" alongside Dior Make-Up's creative and image director Peter Philips. The first video, to be released on 6 June, promises to be a "fun and quirky" experience and will take place backstage at the Dior cruise runway show, to be held in England's Blenheim Palace later today. The combination of Philips' considerable skill and Hadid's arresting beauty is something we're definitely looking forward to.
