Western stars often have a hard time breaking into the Chinese media market. Whether it’s Justin Bieber’s “bad behaviors” or Lady Gaga’s friendship with the Dalai Lama, China’s government has a big veto stamp ready and waiting when it comes to out-of-country celebs.
Bella Hadid might seem like a prime candidate for a China ban. The dark lady of Millennial fashion doesn’t have a history of bad behavior–unless you count smoking in a museum bathroom. But Bella has a great relationship with Vogue Magazine.
That must be why she’s one of several cover stars sharing duties on Vogue China’s September issue. With her hair slicked back and a dark red lip, Bella shows off in a sheer black top embellished with sequins.
Check out her new cover below.
