  • Bella Hadid posted an adorable childhood photo on Instagram, in which she's dressed as The Wizard of Oz's Dorothy Gale (and doesn't look particularly happy about it.)
  • While Hadid's known for her deep brunette hair, baby Bella was blonde.
  • In the photo, she looks exactly like mom Yolanda Hadid (with a little bit of sister Gigi in there too).

Observe: baby Bella, dressed as Dorothy Gale and glumly clasping a basket, looking exactly like her mom Yolanda Hadid. Cute, right?

    During New York Fashion Week in September 2019, Bella sported a sunkissed, honey blonde shade (see: her appearance on the Brandon Maxwell runway). For Burberry, she lost the length and let her roots grow out. Then, for an Alexander Wang campaign, there was a brief flirtation with bleach blonde (though she's back to brunette in other shots from the campaign, so it's likely the blonde was a wig):

    Oh, to be a supermodel, and to luxuriate in the knowledge that there isn't a hair color in existence that doesn't suit you!
