Several videos and photos surfaced across social media on Thursday showing supermodel Bella Hadid walking through Cannes in a dress adorned with the traditional red and white keffiyeh pattern and tassels.

Hadid sporting this statement dress comes as no surprise due to her Palestinian heritage and being one of the most vocal pro-Palestinian celebrities.

The model also shared an open letter addressed to US President Joe Biden by Artists4Ceasefire, with a collective of celebrities calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

In her third pinned Instagram post, Hadid shares a photo of someone holding a sign with a quote attributed to her, “It’s free Palestine til’ Palestine is free,” with an accompanying caption stating, “I will not stop talking about the systematic oppression, pain, and humility that Palestinians face on a regular basis. With only love in my heart and an open mind to educate myself and learn more every day… No matter what.”

While Bella has come under fire for her pro-Palestine stance, the supermodel seems unfazed.
