Hadid continued, writing, “It took me many years of undoing some bad choices I made for myself before I finally found the freedom to sustainable internal beauty and acceptance of what is the best version of myself by no standards but my own. It’s on us to learn to love our selves [sic] and celebrate our unique, one of a kind beauty at all ages as we move through this journey called ‘life.’ Beauty has no meaning without your health.”
Alongside her inspiring message, Hadid (a former model herself) shared a selfie of “the original 1964,” her body clad in a sheer lace bodysuit, the likes of which you’d imagine seeing her daughters Gigi, 23, and Bella, 22, wearing at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. In fact, Bella stepped out just last September in a strikingly similar ensemble.
Happy birthday, and keep on “smiling from the inside out,” Yolanda!
