Gigi & Bella Hadid looked coordinated & kind of jacked at the 2019 VMAs

2019 MTV VMAs

The turnout for last night’s MTV VMAs was okay. I mean, I’m old enough to remember a time when the VMAs were wall-to-wall A-list celebrities and musical acts, but I have to give MTV some credit: this year, they really did a lot with live music and special, one-of-a-kind performances. The guest list was just kind of meh though. A lot of the “audience” cut-aways were to Bella and Gigi Hadid, who were seated front row with Halsey. Gigi wore Tom Ford and Bella wore Charlotte Knowles. Both outfits were bad for different reasons, and it’s weird to see them so coordinated? Also: Bella got fresh face work, right? In some of the cutaways (not to mention these photos) her face looked jacked to hell.

Lil’ Kim killed a Muppet, and I kind of think Bella Hadid went to Lil Kim’s plastic surgeon.

Cardi B wore Déviant La Vie. Is it just me or was Cardi kind of *scattered* at the VMAs? Was she on something?

    They’re trying to bring back 90s hair aren’t they? Sigh.

  2. Kebbie says:

    They both look straight outta 1998 with that makeup and styling

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Bella looks well into her 50s in that second pic (and NOT in a “good” way). Still don’t know why she is considered a “thing”. (But then, I STILL don’t know why the whole “dead eye model look” is a thing either; I’m old lol)

      Cardi should’ve saved the money she spent on implants if all she was going to do was squish “the girls” into oblivion. I’d be afraid they’d pop in such a tight top! lol

      Lenny… sigh.. Lenny… I’d still hit it sideways to Sunday (and twice a day, too!).

      • Eliza says:

        In one picture she looks exactly like my aunt’s face, and she’s turning 60. It’s jarring.

      • Jess says:

        Yea. Their face – their right to do as they please – but Bella looks old and that work was not flattering.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        How old is Bella…..and why is she getting face work at her age??????

        Why cannot these people age with class, grace & chic like Debbie Harry?

      • whatWHAT? says:

        I agree with your whole post.

        the Hadid sisters are SO overrated as models, IMO. they both almost always look like they need a nap when I see pics of them. and I think that Gigi has always been the “prettier” one, so Bella has sought surgery to “keep up”.

        Lenny is SO DAMN FINE.

        the rest of those pictured look ridic, the lot of them.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        I was going to give Bella the benefit of the doubt and say she looks 40,I actually kind of weirdly like Gigi’s outfit…

      • Jaded says:

        Any more surgery and Bella is going to look like Pete Burns. If you don’t know who he is, it’s worth googling

      • Ronaldinhio says:

        Gigi Hadid has been off to the land of Kylie Jenner fillers. She’s part of pillow land. It’s sad as I thought she was the most interesting looking of these ‘supermodels’
        Bella can look so angular that she looks like a Persian cat.

      • Mgsota says:

        Lenny has found the fountain of youth and looks sexier than ever. Give me Lenny, all day, everyday.

      • cloudy says:

        agree about LENNY. So hot. Just have a whole article about how hot he is!!!

    • pearlime says:

      90s Delia’s catalogue models.

      • Kebbie says:

        Delia’s! Omg that’s a blast from the past

      • Kimmie says:

        I just spit tea on my laptop. I needed this laugh so bad. delia*s was awesome!

      • C-No says:

        Hey now! I was a 90’s Delia’s catalogue model! … And you’re totally right.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh my god you were a 90s Delia model?!?! That’s amazing! I loved Delia’s and always thought the models were SOOOO pretty.

        My 14-yearold self feels like I just had a brush with someone famous LOL.

        This is a fun flashback for y’all:

      • N says:

        One of my best buds was a Delia’s model as well! Did you do the photos in Tokyo?!

      • Valois says:

        Ahaha thanks for the link, kitten! Some of the clothes look exactly like the stuff you can get at H&M atm. The current 90’s craze is truly bizarre 😀

      • C-No says:

        @N nope, my parents wouldn’t let me out of the country, so no Tokyo for me. I was in a couple shoots for a couple places and then lost interest. Or possibly I was very tall, very skinny and actually a terrible model, lol.

      • Star says:

        There is a blonde model who was in all the Delia’s catalogs in like, 1997-1998. When Yahoo chat rooms were in their prime, I used to send photos of her instead of photos of 11 year old me to guys I chatted with when my parents weren’t home. I feel bad for doing it – I’m sorry, nameless Delia’s model.

  3. DS9 says:

    Diplo could get it. I’d never tell a soul and take my shame to the grave but yes.

  4. CharliePenn says:

    Lenny must have a deal with the devil because dammmmmmmn. Wow. He looks as amazing as he did in the 90s!

    Bella… hmmmm. I really wonder why our society is so obsessed with a body type that does nothing for the clothing. She is very slender naturally, plus obviously feels the pressure to keep as much weight off as possible. And it does nothing for the clothes, nothing for her face which looks overdrawn and tired… I think this super-skinny obsession is yet another way of controlling women. I just don’t get the appeal in staying as thin as humanly possible. I would love to see her looking healthy and then see how great clothing would look on her, and how great her face would look then.

    Nice to see other women there showing varied and healthy women’s bodies.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      That was the great thing about the 90s “Super Models”. They were engaged with the camera, personality galore, slim, but they were athletically fit, with tone and muscle, not emaciated and dead-eyed.

      • MariaS says:

        Yep, and they knew how to WALK. The Hadid sisters clomp, with Gigi being the worst offender.

    • Savannah says:

      “I think this super-skinny obsession is yet another way of controlling women.”

      YES. 100%!

    • Paige says:

      What is a’hem, hanging between Lenny’s legs???

  5. Léna says:

    All these plastic surgeries look so bad in pictures, how bad does it look from up close in real life???

    Bella looks like she is a 35 years old (blow up) doll. And way too much fake tan. She does not look “fresh”, just plastic.

    Edit : or maybe she looks more like those new robots?

    • Kebbie says:

      I remember thinking last night on tv that she was much prettier than Gigi, but looking at these pictures all I can say is yikes. The lighting in the place must have been darker or something. She looks so harsh here.

    • AB says:

      Her eyes look odd. Having eye surgery at 22. Yikes.

    • Sarah says:

      My first reaction was ‘wow she looks like she’s in her 40’s’. Yikes.

    • Harryg says:

      Bella Hadid looks like Melania Trump. I’m sorry but Hadid really irritates me with her plastic surgery face. It’s like someone who wins a marathon by taking a short cut and then goes like “I won I won look at me party!” Did everyone in this family absolutely have to be a model?

  6. Coco says:

    I’ve always thought Bella was really beautiful but she’s almost unrecognizable.

    • SKF says:

      Yeah me too. I think both of these girls have gotten too skinny for starters. They have gorgeous curves that have basically disappeared. It’s sad. They both look emaciated. Bella… I don’t know what she’s done but she looks pulled way too tight and too angular in a pulling up and back kind of way. Maybe the eye makeup is exacerbating whatever it is too? Also, she’s had more work since the MTV awards. I just looked at her Instagram and since the show she’s had a TONNE of filler pumped into her top lip. It looks awful. The natural dip in the middle has almost disappeared they are so full. The top lip is twice the size of the bottom one. And she onbviousky thinks it looks good because she’s running her tongue all over it. It looks awful. She has full lips naturally, she doesn’t need to do that!! She must be so deeply insecure to do this stuff which just makes me sad.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “She has full lips naturally”

        actually, she doesn’t.

        if you google “Bella Hadid before” you’ll see that she looks NOTHING like she used to. nose job(s) is the most obvious, but her upper lip was quite thin before all the work.

  7. BasicBitch says:

    I love me some Lenny!

  8. Jen says:

    Wow, Bella Hadid. That picture of her trying to smile through…whatever she has done to her face…

    • Originaltessa says:

      She looks like Melania Trump… who is like 30 years her senior. Not good.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        totally thought of the Melania comparison. eyes pulled to a squint.

      • Lori says:

        I think Melania might actually look better and that is saying a lot considering she can barely open her eyes properly. I think the difference is in at what age someone starts with the surgeries and how much they get. Bella has gone the Kylie Jenner route and has gotten massive amounts of surgery for a 22 year old.

  9. Originaltessa says:

    I don’t get Bella Hadid. Can someone explain? I’m not saying she’s hideous or something, but a model? That makes money? How???

    • Sophia’s Sideye says:

      Photoshop and lies.

    • minx says:

      Not really to compare the two, although I guess am, but Gigi is naturally cute and has an expressive face. Bella got a nose job too young and since then she’s had other work done that hasn’t done her any favors.

    • Dee says:

      She’s a good model. Her and Gigi are actually very good at what they do. Bella looks great in photos and Gigi is great for VS kind of gigs.
      So while nepotism is very much involved, I think those two could have been successful models regardless.
      Plus, they are very liked in their industry. You will not hear stories about them being late or rude.

      On a side note, it’s really sad what Bella has done to her face. She also looks 100 times better with her new light hair when it’s not done in such a severe do.

      • N says:

        I really don’t think they would have been successful models if it were not for their mom being on Real Housewives, etc. Gigi’s walk as some said up thread is horrendous.

      • TrixC says:

        I don’t think they look great in photos at all, they both have dead eyes and never seem to connect with the camera. Same with Kendall Jenner – great figure but not photogenic at all. Cara Delevigne is the best of the nepotism models IMO, she’s not that beautiful in real life but takes an amazing photo.

      • @Backstage Bitchy says:

        sorry @Dee, but that is only true of one of them. I’ve never heard a bad word about Gigi, after my 20 years in and out of the industry.
        But Bella is a cow (english usage of the word). Surly, petulant, puts on airs, demands her own area backstage while all the other models are doing their jobs getting hair and makeup done. She signs on for promotional projects and then gives the lamest non-effort, (though not outright REFUSING to cooperate, because then she wouldn’t get paid) and makes it clear she’s being FORCED to do whatever it is she’s supposed to be doing. She has zero mirth or joy about her, and comes across as totally elitist and entitled, TOWARDS the other models, who earned their spot there. NOT a fan, and I wouldn’t be even if she were a great model, which she decidedly is not.
        It’s ok, though, because with this new face and styling, the only thing she’ll be modeling soon is Virginia Slims….

    • Michael says:


  10. Melissa says:

    I think Gigi’s cheeks look more jacked that Bella’s. Either way, messing with your face in your 20’s, seems a tad extra?

    • lana86 says:

      Gigi brings to mind alcoholic bloat

    • PleaseAndThankYou says:

      Um, Bella is the one who bought herself a new face in the first place. Gigi still looks like herself, even though she’s lost weight and needs to stop messing with fillers. Bella, though? I really would not be commenting about Gigi, knowing that Bella had to buy a new face to become a model in the first place.

  11. SamC says:

    If you didn’t identify Lil Kim I would have had no idea who it was, she is unrecognizable from even a few years ago, when you could still get a glimpse of her original face.

    Isn’t FKA Twigs with Shia LeBoeuf? Could explain why she looks so out of it, he’s a hot mess.

    • Rice says:

      I read that Lil Kim had plastic surgery to correct facial damage due to a physically abusive ex. He beat her again and she had to have surgery a second time. But doesn’t explain her skin bleaching.

  12. A says:

    Oh, wow. Whoever agreed to do that to Bella needs their licence taken away.

    • schmootc says:

      Yeah, she’s quickly veering into Jocelyn Wildenstein territory. And at this age, if she keeps on that route, she’s going to end up in a very bad place. I feel sorry for her.

  13. tw says:

    Re: the Hadid sisters – that’s a lot of “work” and they still don’t look great. The beige styling and makeup isn’t doing them any favors either.

    On a positive note – I think Christian Siriano always works FOR his clients and not the other way around like many designers. Bebe Rexha looked fantastic.

    • naheed says:

      Yes, Bebe looks incredible. I also love her face.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Bebe is gorgeous IMO

    • Dee Kay says:

      Yes I am a big Christian Siriano fan for working with clients of all body types and doing their bodies justice. He is not pushing his “style” on anyone, he takes clients on and does whatever style flatters them, makes them stand out on the RC, and makes them happy, and I applaud him for that. I wish other houses would learn from him but they won’t b/c they’re so devoted to the idea of putting their signature look-of-the-moment on their celebrity reps’ bodies, even if it’s all wrong fit-wise and vibe-wise.

  14. Leriel says:

    Gigi had already cute cheeks, like your grandma wants to squeeze, why all this fillers?

    • Deehunny says:

      Yes I think it is the fillers. She looks like Miranda Kerr to me here with the cheeks which is something that I have never noticed before

  15. Lizzie says:

    bella looks terrible. she needs to cool it with her face. she keeps screwing with that nose and it is gonna fall off by the time she’s 35.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I remember the very first time I saw her and was like “who gave her the budget/obvious nose job?”

      I mean, there was literally a LINE, like a demarcation, where her old nose ended and the new nose began.

  16. Laura says:

    Bella looks like a drag queen, but I think she’s interesting to look at.

  17. naheed says:

    Bella’s surgeon did her dirty. She looks like a cross between Melania Trump and that Trollface meme.

  18. Emily says:

    Gigi used to look so fresh and pretty, than she lost so much weight. It’s really affected her face (that, drugs, or she’s gotten some bad work done).

  19. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I actually feel sorry for Bella. It’s clear to me that she has some major insecurities. She is a naturally beautiful girl and still feels the need to tweak her face. She’s young and now looks older than me.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I do a bit, too.

      I really think that, in their family, Gigi was always “the pretty one”, as I said above, and it likely did a number on Bella’s self esteem, especially if Gigi got more attention and/or “praise” from the parents.

    • N says:

      This. Almost a decade of plastic surgery at 22 is devastating when you think of the mental anguish that led/leads to having this work.

  20. Eva says:

    Lenny Kravitz looks younger than Bella Hadid.

    • Léna says:

      Definitely healthier than her for sure and I’m sure he had a fare share of drug use a few decades ago lol

  21. Neners says:

    Bella looks very….feline.

  22. Biqa says:

    Bella looks like she went as Paris Hilton circa Simple Life for Halloween.

  23. PlaidSheets says:

    They kept cutting away to the same few celebrities. Is that all they can get now? As an old lady of 38, I actually enjoyed the performances. It’s nice to see live-ish music. Maybe they should just cut the reaction shots if the attendance is so bad. The kids losing their minds in the audience pit were much more enjoyable than awkward, self-aware celebrity dancing.

    • ME says:

      Most of the performers weren’t singing live and it was painfully obvious. I think only a few celebs showed up for the awards and that’s why they kept focusing on them in the audience. If the awards were in LA they might have had more celebs show up.

  24. Ash says:

    FKA Twigs can pull off any outfit. She always looks interesting and confident. I actually love Bella Hadid’s look as well. I know some tweaking might have been involved, but it’s not as gross and over-the-top as the Kardashian’s surgery. I think she’s gorgeous *runs and hides*

    • whatWHAT? says:

      not “over the top”?

      have you seen her “before” pictures? looks like a completely different person.

      you don’t have to run and hide; everyone is entitled to an opinion on who is gorgeous, but it’s NOT opinion to say she’s had extensive facial work. it’s more than “some tweaking”.

  25. Nev says:

    Diplo yes all day. I know….
    Lenny Forever

  26. Lori says:

    Bella Hadid seems to have fallen into the Kylie Jenner-trap of unnecessary and massive amounts of plastic surgery at a very young age that makes her look terrible. She’s only 22 and she looks decades older with a few too many bad facelifts.

    Lenny Kravitz however can get it.

    • Kebbie says:

      22?? I thought she was like 30 and even then I thought she looked old for her age. I can’t believe she’s 22.

      I had to google it, she was born in 1996! My mind is blown.

  27. usedtobe says:

    Ick!!! The Hadid sisters are pathetic. When someone tells me they think Bella Hadid is soooo gorgeous, I remind them that with enough money you too can look like that!! I absolutely hate this maximum plastic surgery culture that young girls are having to grow up around. My 11 year old niece was already talking about “fixing her face”. That scares the bejeezus out of me, that if you don’t like something you just alter it with a little nip and tuck instead of, say working with your positive attributes?!?! I mean, of course, if you’re disfigured or have something that is sort of freakishly out of place, I get it but not when you start out pretty and just have so much wrong inside your head, it’s therapy you need, not surgery.

  28. xflare says:

    They all look dreadful

  29. Dizzy says:

    The only one who looks good is Lenny Kravitz. Yes!! And he’s my age.
    Fillers and plastic surgery is awful. Bella looks like an old hag. Remember when people were saying she was too young for the Weeknd. Now she looks too old for him!!

  30. MC2 says:

    Bella & Gigi look like mother/daughter. Yikes. I do think that Gigi looked cute.

  31. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Lenny Kravitz can still have me every day of the week and twice on Sundays. *sigh*

  32. Zoya says:

    Diplo. Yes. I. Would still hit that. All day long 😫😫 I hate myself

  33. Veronica S says:

    If nothing else, this new crop of Instagram models is giving us explicit insight into how quickly you can wreck natural beauty with excessive plastic surgery.

    • salmah says:

      Looking back at photos from 2017 and even early 2018 it’s startling just how quick her surgery went from good to not. It’s honestly jarring.

  34. Lala11_7 says:

    I think FKA looks GLORIOUS!!! And so does Lenny….of course…

    • tw says:

      I don’t like the blow up doll lips pose a-la-Khloe Kardashian look. Yes, her lips are natural but that open mouth pose is a choice.

    • N says:

      Her hair looks really pretty. I just love her stunning and delicate face.

  35. Dee Kay says:

    Women of Celebitchy: DIPLO???!!!!!!!!!! REALLY??!?!?!?!?!!!

  36. JanetDR says:

    I don’t know anything about Bebe Rexha but: body goals! Kenny is magical, although I am confused about the scarf tail? Or I am seeing that wrong?

  37. Jen says:

    I have nothing against plastic surgery or enhancing one’s look at all but Bella looks like Jocelyn Wildenstein…I don’t get it. I’ve never thought either of these sisters were anything special but Bella now officially looks terrifying.

  38. maya8 says:

    Dead-eyed plastic barbie dolls.

  39. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I thought Bella was Gigi’s mom at first. I don’t know anything about most of these peeps, but Lenny is simply perpetual. Don’t know Twigs but I want her wrap lol.

  40. Daisy says:

    Bella’s nose job isn’t as amazing as it used to be. That’s why people shouldn’t get cosmetic surgery when they are so young (Bella was like only 15/16 when she got hers), it is gonna change the look of it as you grow older. Gigi also looks kinda weird, her cheeks mainly, but maybe it’s the awful makeup. The outfits are awfultoo, it’s like the worst part of the early 2000s fashion.

  41. Sour Patch says:

    I actually really liked Bella Hadid’s look when she first hit the modeling scene, but her current face is tragic. She looks like Carla Bruni and not a young Carla Bruni.

    I feel bad for both Gigi and Bella, but especially Bella. If you watch old clips on YouTube from when they were on Real Housewives with Yolanda, the way she treated them was terrible. It’s like they were never good enough, especially Bella. Yolanda only cares about looks. She is a hollow mother. She barely acknowledged Bella in any of the clips.

  42. lolalola3 says:

    Bella & Gigi look like Real Housewives from somewhere…so sad when women so young start tinkering with their faces. Don’t they realize it ends up making them look so much older? Exhibit #1 = Lindsay Lohan. Who now looks middle-aged. 🙁

  43. sammiches says:

    I always feel like Bella’s skull is about to burst through her skin, she’s pulled so freaking tight.

  44. Maxi Morrone says:

    With the Hadid Sisters – all the surgery is to make them not look like their dad, especially Bella. They should have made their brother get surgery, because when you see him you realize what they really should look like.

    To my knowledge they do not get paid much to model, which is why you see them so much. The trend today is to use people who already have money and just want media exposure.

    • salmah says:

      Before surgery Bella looked exactly like her brother and also similar to her half-sisters Alana and Marielle (although Marielle has also jumped on the surgery train recently). Only Gigi looked more like their mom instead of their dad. I think that’s why Yolanda favored her so much.

  45. Gingi says:

    Bella is getting too thin and starting to look like Celine Dion

  46. J ferber says:

    I believe that Bella and Gigi do get paid a lot. In their world, money = worth. Nepotism models must surely get the big money as the supermodels of today (though i believe they are pampered poseurs).

  47. Bee says:

    Keep the rest, I’ll take Lenny. He is showing them all how it’s done. His ageing process (and there basically isn’t one) is defying all logic. He’s so hot, I’m thrown.

    Got nothing to say about Bella’s face except GIRL STOP. Literally cannot look anymore.

  48. SURFCHICK says:

    I think they looked awesome!! I loved how they matched. I think her eyes look that way because of the way they did her hair.

  49. Parigo says:

    Bella always looks jacked, her whole face is fake. But it’s sad to see Gigi looking jacked. She’s always been naturally cute and the tweeks are not doing her any favors.

  50. grumpyterrier says:

    Bella usually looks stunning- even prettier than Gigi. But here she looks like Gigi’s mom. :/

  51. Sam says:

    1. I don’t know which Hadid is which but neither of them should smile….ever.
    2. Does FKA Twigs’ mouth close at all ever? Like is she capable of it because I’ve only ever seen this weird open mouthed stunned look from her.
    3. You’re right. Lenny Kravitz is sexy as hell and I will never think he’s too old to show up shirtless.
