On April 26, Bella posted a series of photos and videos to her Instagram account where she is seen getting down and dirty in what appears to be a farm (or country backyard, or some outdoorsy spot that certainly does not resemble the runway she’s usually slaying for us).
In the photos, which show Bella and mom Yolanda Hadid replanting apparently 1500 (!!!) lavender pots, Bella sports simple black jeans, a camo-print shirt tucked in, a protective face mask (gotta stay safe!) and gloves. However, the true star of the outfit — that would have probably gone unnoticed if it weren’t for stan account Bella Hadid Closet on Instagram — is her vintage “Joe Exotic TV” trucker hat.
But, what exactly does it mean? Is Bella another Tiger King stan? Was the hat a gift from a close family member, maybe from soon-to-be-parents Gigi and Zayn? These questions, while all valid, shall remain unanswered for the time being (though “Bella Hadid: model, trendsetter, Joe Exotic fanatic” does have a nice ring to it).
Regardless of how Bella got her hands on the hat, what we do know is that she is serving a look, even as a farmer. And something tells us Joe Exotic is smiling in his prison cell because of it. And if he’s not, at least her fans are.
“Omfg the hat,” wrote one fan alongside multiple crying laughs emojis, understandably shook by Bella’s look. The hat, though no longer on sale officially from Joe Exotic’s former zoo, is available for purchase on Etsy for only $ 23.
Whether you’re heading to the farm like Bella, relaxing in your backyard, or getting ready to suit up for a safe visit to the grocery store, sporting this Joe Exotic will surely attract some looks — for better or for worse.
