Bella Hadid grew up in the spotlight–thanks to her Kardashian-adjacent family and reality TV star mother. Now, she’s one of today’s most successful supermodels, along with her sister Gigi. Unlike Gigi, Bella favors overtly sexy styles both on and off the red carpet, with plenty of edge, cut-outs, and studs. In honor of the model’s 20th birthday, here’s a recap of her best red carpet looks over the years.
