Today, we take a look into the deep follows of one Bella Hadid, 20-year-old jetsetting superdupermodel, former reality TV bit character and younger sister of Gigi. Let's see what Freud, Jung and Rogers have to say about the lass. Just kidding, let's dive headlong down the rabbit hole and bullshit this thing...

The Bell Curve
Fellow models, fellow Hadids, brands she models for, photographers, makeup artists. Very much what you'd expect, with a smattering of what we assume are non-famous IRL friends.
A lot of tattoo artists and parlors
Bella just got an oh-so-trendy micro tattoo (above, of a rose) at Bang Bang in NYC. It’s her second, after a pair of also-micro wings on her ankles, either commemorating the god Mercury or her status as an honorary Victoria’s Secret angel. The fact that she consumes so much tattoo ‘gramage tells us she’s considerate and methodical, fully aware of the permanence and significance of the choice of a tattoo. In the end though, she went with what is easily the current hippest and celebrity favored option.
Though she no longer follows Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, whom she dated for a year and a half, she continues to follow this incredibly fan-like fan page. Their breakup has seemed outwardly amicable, so perhaps this is an inside joke maintained by the two, or maybe a low-key way of keeping the flame. Or maybe an oversight. 257 followees isn't many. The fact that this account is among them says...something.
A leading Formula One driver (the sport that has the opposite reputation across the pond that Nascar does here) who’s more ripped than any race car driver needs or has a right to be and is, for our money, a way cooler option for favorite and best-dressed British athlete than @davidbeckham. Hamilton has a lot of followers in the fashion world. That Hadid is one, and doesn't follow Beckham speaks to a discerning eye.
Clarkson is a slightly-above-average player on a bad team in Hadid’s home town. He’s about to be made irrelevant by Lonzo Ball, but is a snazzy dresser and may be (though is not, in our Fashion Week experiences), among the growing class of middle-of-the-pack NBAers who are way into fashion (see: @kellyoubre and @bazz). Aside from Hamilton, he appears to be the only athlete on the followee list. Dating?
Is getting high and thumbing through National Geographic Instagrams a thing yet? If so, Bella, get at us.
She follows sister and fellow hyper-model @gigihadid, so we can safely assume they're doing just fine splitting dominion over the fashion world. No apparent issues there. She has undeniably good taste and loyalty to the brands that compensate her and appears to be the careful sort. No real kinks or quirks to speak of. No major PR controversies or racially insensitive posts. Dedicates a good number of grams to non-professional photos, which is charming. How about we write a prescription for 100mg of keep doing what you're doing.
