Bella Hadid wears ‘absolutely nothing’ on first magazine cover since yearlong modeling break

Bella Hadid is a cover girl once again.

The supermodel draped herself in nothing but a poster on the cover of Perfect magazine Tuesday, channeling a 1978 image of Blondie’s Debbie Harry.

Hadid, 27, sits on a chair in the first of four spring/summer 2024 cover shots — her first magazine since taking a break from the business amid her health battle — covering herself up with a white poster reading “Absolutely nothing. nothing at all.”

While the catwalk star, who took a modeling hiatus to undergo treatment for Lyme disease last year, went bare on top, she didn’t totally stick to the poster’s message, wearing a tiny pair of black briefs.

Hadid accessorized with a pair of huge gold hoop earrings, wearing a heavy amount of bright pink blush with an otherwise barely-there makeup look.

According to the magazine, the shoot was “inspired by an image of Debbie Harry performing in 1978, wearing as a dress a poster she had torn from the wall outside the venue.”

The Blondie frontwoman wrapped a poster promoting the band’s show around herself in the photo, although, unlike Hadid, she wore a black top underneath.

Hadid also stars on three other cover pics for Perfect, wearing a simple hot pink tee in one shot as she poses with her hands above her head.

The third cover features the Palestinian and Dutch model in a groovy 1960s-inspired look by Ami Paris featuring a sleeveless black dress and tall metallic silver boots.

While this marks Hadid’s return to magazine covers, she’s starred in other campaigns since her 2023 modeling break, during which she also broke up with her boyfriend of two years, Marc Kalman.

In August, the sober supermodel shared a behind-the-scenes TikTok from her first job since her time off, and she looked unrecognizable in September 2023 as she posed in an extraterrestrial-themed Marc Jacobs shoot.

While the star has made some low-key appearances, including at niece Khai Malik’s birthday party and out and about with new love interest Adan Banuelos, she’s stayed mostly out of the spotlight until now.

Fans will have to wait and see if 2024 brings Bella back to the runway.
