Just Bella Hadid balancing on a horse's back for the cover of Italian Vogue

Bella Hadid has taken the runway to the rodeo for her latest modelling job – cover star of the April issue of Vogue Italia. The long-time horse lover has combined her two worlds and the result is seriously chic.

After taking time out from the spotlight to focus on her health and her continued battle with Lymes Disease for the majority of 2023, fans were worried the younger sister of Gigi Hadid may never make her return to the fashion forefront. Her Instagram now filled with photos on the farm and riding horses, replacing the fashion campaigns and photoshoot bts snapshots. Plus, throw in the fact she's ditched dating celebs for a relationship with IRL cowboy Adan Banuelos.

Bella quieted her sceptics by kicking off 2024 with a Perfect magazine cover, made even more major by the fact she wore an XL poster as a dress. And despite skipping fashion week (and sparking renewed concern), she's back again in the most iconic way: balancing on horseback in a figure-hugging nude dress.

The dress in question is an elegant Balenciaga design featuring a roll neck, long sleeves and flowing train that drapes over the horse as Bella stands on its back. Just one of many looks modelled atop the animal, with Bella revealing in the caption of a second post (below) that it's actually her own horse, Dallas, and the shoot took place at her farm.

Other ensembles accessorised with Dallas included a backless purple fringed dress, as well as a trench coat and jeans 'fit.

Bella also went topless in a second outfit, a ripped white jacket and jeans, with the addition of a streak of white paint down her chest. She also modelled a totally backless blue gown standing on a tree stump, and a bridal white satin and tulle dress.

A truly stunning and beautiful photoshoot. There's no doubt, Bella is our westerncore queen.
