Bella Hadid took a break from being a brand spokesmodel and all round catwalk queen to protest against Donald Trump in London.
Despite it being absolutely freezing in the capital, the 21-year-old decided to add her voice to a Palestinian demonstration while still wearing her slinky dress from a Tag Heuer event.
Bella had been on Oxford Street promoting the luxury watch brand, and looked equal parts festive and raunchy in a skintight, floor-length red gown with black trimmings.
Also donning a decadent white fur coat, Bella modelled a Tag Heuer watch as she played the guest of honour at the VIP party.
However, as she was being driven to her hotel, the model saw a protest outside the US embassy and decided to hop out and join the crowd.
Bella was seen protesting amidst hordes of people carrying signs reading ‘Free Palestine’, ‘End Israeli Occupation’ and ‘Dump Trump’, amid the US President’s pledge to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is the proclaimed capital of Palestine.
The protest was part of an international ‘Day of Rage’ against the move, which has proved highly controversial.
It’s no surprise Bella wanted to join the cause – her father, Mohamed Hadid, is Palestinian American.
The model, whose sister is Gigi Hadid, protested outside the embassy for several minutes before jumping back into her car and heading to her hotel.
Prior to this, Bella spoke about Trump’s decision to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying she ‘stands with Palestine’.
In an Instagram post, she wrote: ‘I’ve been waiting to put this into perfect words but I realized there is no perfect way to speak of something so unjust. A very very sad day.Watching the news and seeing the pain of the Palestinian people makes me cry for the many many generations of Palestine.
‘Seeing the sadness of my father, cousins, and Palestinian family that are feeling for our Palestinian ancestors makes this even harder to write. Jerusalem is home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take 5 steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace.
‘The TREATMENT of the Palestinian people is unfair, one-sided and should not be tolerated. I stand with Palestine.
‘There is no hate against anyone… There are no sides… All religions living side by side.. Now it is Just one man..it has always been a factor of trying to bring peace… Where is the hope..?’
