While the rest of us have been baking banana bread and watching the entirety of Netflix, it seems Bella Hadid has been putting her time to slightly better use.

The model, 23, revealed on Instagram that she will be holding a charity auction of items she has secretly made while alone in lockdown.

In a post to her 31.8 million followers, she announced that she had teamed up with fashion brand Chrome Hearts for a good cause.

She shared three selfies – which appeared to have been taken at home – of her sporting rollers in her hair as well as a distinctive yellow hair clip and a striking blue eyeshadow.

In one of the pictures she sported a pair of black dice round her neck, while in two of the shots she wore a white dressing gown branded with the Chrome Hearts logo.

Captioning the snaps, she wrote: “I can’t wait to tell you about a project I started at the beginning of quarantine...

“I’ll be auctioning a whole bunch of limited edition @chromeheartsxbella pieces made by me @ home during my time alone...

“Without too much detail...long story short....my family at @chromeheartsofficial and I are promising that 100% of proceeds are going to @yourrightscamp, @feedingamerica and a few smaller organisations (that I will name at a later time) all actively raising up and supporting the Black community, each in different and special ways to further the liberation of Black people worldwide...

“Making these pieces meant and means so much to me and I’m grateful to @laurielynnstark @richardstarkchromehearts and @mattyboy90 for allowing me to send the profits to where they are most needed...

“So I hope you enjoy and love it all as much I enjoyed making it for you. Can’t wait to show you.”

Despite not yet revealing details of what she will be auctioning off – or when – Hadid’s post was popular with fans who left more than a million ‘likes’.

Her mum, Yolanda Hadid, wrote: “Proud of you my love.”

Similarly, her cousin Joanna Van Der Herik said: “You are a real life angel.”

A third shared: “Omg I love this idea take my money.”

And a fourth added: “I’m so excited.”

Chrome Hearts, based in the US, specialises in handmade jewellery, furniture and clothing.

It comes as Bella starred in the first fashion campaign to be shot over FaceTime for French brand Jacquemus.
