Bella Hadid is taking the summer heat up to even higher temperatures with a new Instagram photo that shows her taking a shower while wearing a racy bikini. The 20-year-old supermodel uploaded the image to social media on Wednesday.
Captioning the image, "Paradise Happy BB," the Victoria's Secret angel is seen sporting a white bikini that accents her tanned and toned beach bod. Photographed standing under a shower, Hadid runs her fingers through her hair, while hanging out on what appears to be a luxury yacht.
As you might imagine, Hadid's bikini snap was quite well-received with her 14 million followers. Her adoring fans showered the post with more than 525k likes in less than three hours.
While Hadid makes it look easy, she previously spoke out saying that she has had to work extremely hard to become one of the most sought-after models in the world. It is also important to her to be successful on her own, despite being born into a famous family.
"I'm not saying I don't love my job, but people think modeling is a bulls--t thing to become more famous," she said. "I was 100 percent independent by the time I was 18, and I paid for my own apartment. That wasn't because of my parents. I worked my a-- off for two years."
The younger sister of Gigi Hadid credits her parents with her work ethic.
"They've always been hard workers," she said. "I started working when I was about 14 at a juice place, making juices, acai bowls. I cashiered. I cleaned dishes – and like 100 blenders – for hours."
Bella says that being propelled into the spotlight hasn't changed how she perceives herself.
"I don't walk down the street like, 'I'm famous,'" she said during an interview with Glamour. "It's still weird to me when people ask for pictures. My close friends from high school keep me grounded — they don't care about what I do. I'm still the same person I was, and I try hard not to change."
