Bella Hadid goes TOPLESS behind massive LV bag for brand campaign collab with Yayoi Kusama


Bella Hadid went beguilingly topless in a new Louis Vuitton campaign done in collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

The 26-year-old sister of Gigi Hadid had a massive Louis Vuitton bag positioned in front of her bust, preventing her from violating Instagram’s Community Guidelines.

In the evocative images, which looked ripped from Kusama’s multimedia creations, Bella was sprawled across the floor painting splotches into the air.

Hello, gorgeous: Bella Hadid went beguilingly topless in a new Louis Vuitton campaign done in collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama

A couple of splashy videos showed her surrounded by multicolored blobs of paint all suspended in midair around her like bubbles.

Bella interspersed her modeling shots with a few quotes from Kusama, who has been frank about the way she leans on her art to cope with her mental health issues.

‘If it were not for art, I would have killed myself a long time ago,’ went one line by Kusama, who has lived in a Tokyo asylum by choice since 1977.

Another quote Bella cited from the artist declared: ‘Every time I have had a problem, I have confronted it with the ax of art.’

‘I have been struggling with mental illness and emptiness throughout my life. Now I want people to understand my glorious quest for the truth,’ went another.

‘Working on paintings is a process toward my artistic creation. It is a new spiritual theme of my whole philosophy for pursuing the truth. Each painting represents a process in all of my art,’ Kusama declared.

While plugging the new ad campaign on Instagram, Bella effervesced in her captions: ‘My first @louisvuitton campaign could not have been a better collaboration than @yayoikusama_ …’ 

The daughter of former Real Housewife Of Beverly Hills Yolanda Hadid gushed: ‘not only am I the biggest fan , so intrigued with her story and life….but I connect with her deeply on healing mental struggles through artistic freedom and creation.’

She spilled: ‘I am so proud to do this campaign , and hope that one day I will be able to embrace Miss Kusama , and tell her how she important she is to not only me, but so many people struggling. Proud is the only word I have. Proud.’

Bella, whose mother Yolanda was also a model, said last year that she suffered from ‘eating disorders’ when she was growing up. 

‘Growing up, I thought it was normal that I had this chronic anxiety and this disassociation, crying every day and not knowing who I was,’ she told i-D.

‘Whether it was eating disorders or smoking a pack of Marlboros since the age of 14, I’m like: “Oh, this is what all of the kids are doing.” I realized that maybe that was me trying to figure out why I felt that way. And in reality, all I needed was therapy.’

Bella shared that as a rising model she continued to suffer from body dysmorphia, which affected the way she reacted to her fame.

‘During that part of my life, I was so out of body, disassociating so much… I was so confused by what people saw of me,’ she said. 

‘I still, even now, see comments on Instagram when I’m sitting on the couch and am like: “Are they talking about me?” I don’t understand how I’ve gotten to this point where people either appreciate my work or know who I am.’

She told Vogue this year that as a teenager she suffered from anorexia, which she attributed partly to the Adderall she was prescribed for what was thought was ADHD.

The interview drew a storm of controversy when Bella revealed that she had a nose job when she was just 14 years old.

Social media erupted with anger at Yolanda for providing her daughter with cosmetic surgery at such a tender age.

Bella herself expressed regret about the procedure, saying: ‘I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors. I think I would have grown into it.’

Yolanda hails from the Netherlands, while Gigi and Bella’s father Mohamed Hadid is a Palestinian who was born in Nazareth just months after the foundation of Israel.
