Bella Hadid: 'I need to stand up for myself'

Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid considers her biggest failure to be not standing up for herself more.

The model answered a series of personal questions that were picked by Rihanna in a new interview for the Umbrella hitmaker's guest-edited issue of i-D magazine, and when asked what her biggest failure had been, Bella revealed it was when she didn't "trust and nurture" her intuition.

"I learned that in order for me to grow and know my personal strengths, I need to own my decisions and stand up for myself and what I believe in," she shared.

And the 23-year-old, who has walked for the likes of Chanel, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Versace, went on to reveal that the highlight of her career has been working with her idols.

"The biggest professional success for me has been being able to work alongside the men and women I have looked up to and watched since I was young," Bella explained. "It's been a blessing to watch these artists work and I feel lucky to be a small part of their big visions."

She also shared her New Year's resolutions and explained that she will be working towards being her "most authentic" self in the coming year.

"2020 is about leading with love and being the most authentic version of myself as possible ! I've seen myself and the people around me grow in so many different ways this year, and in so many aspects of life," she stated.

"I surprised myself with what I found and I feel confident that I will be entering 2020 with a new perspective on my own personal, and professional happiness."
