AceShowbiz - Bella Hadid is usually easy to recognize thanks to her unique feature, but definitely not this time. Fans were left baffled when the Victoria's Secret model shared on Instagram a picture from her latest Versace Fall/Winter 2018 campaign. Many claimed that she looked so unrecognizable in the image that they barely recognized her.
The picture in question featured Bella standing between fellow models Stella Maxwell and Joao Knorr. She donned a black-and-white Versace logo T-shirt, a black belted corset and a ballgown skirt with sheer black stockings underneath. She paired her look with a printed scarf, a beret as well as a pair of leather gloves and a lot of jewelries.

While she still looked stunning as usual, her devoted followers were left scratching their heads as they struggled to identify which one was Bella. Even when they were finally able to recognize her, many commented that she looked totally different from her usual self.
"If that's you in the middle it looks nothing like you," one user said in the comment section, while another similarly wrote, "She doesn't look anything like herself!! Too much editing." There were also many similar comments such as, "Which one are you?" "Are you even in this pic?" and "Bella is in this photo? She is unrecognizable."
Some others, meanwhile, claimed that they originally thought it was a picture of her sister Gigi Hadid instead of her. "You're in the middle? I thought this was Gigi's post before I read your name," one commented. Someone else noted, "Why did they change her so much? She's so pretty as is."
Reps for Versace and Bella did not immediately respond to request for comment.
The Versace Fall/Winter 2018 campaign features the "longest-ever advertising image." In total, the campaign includes 54 models "symbolizing inclusivity and diversity" for director Donatella Versace and "her vision for the brand."
