REVIEW: ‘Light & Magic’ illuminates legacy of Hollywood’s premiere special effects studio

DUBAI: Supermodel Bella Hadid was spotted out and about in the Gramercy neighborhood of New York City over the weekend, taking a stroll with actor and comedian Ramy Youssef, her close friend and the creator of Hulu’s “Ramy.”

The Palestinian-Dutch model took to the streets in a sleeveless mustard-yellow sweater, with baggy jeans and black boots completing the street-chic look. And Golden Globe winner Youssef was seen wearing Egyptian brand Okhtein’s signature Dome Shades, as spotted by Cairo Scene.

Earlier this year, Hadid announced that she will appear on the third season of the introspective Hulu comedy “Ramy,” in an undefined guest-starring role. The model will make her television acting debut on the series, which is based on the story of a first-generation American Muslim living in New Jersey.

“Best cast, best crew, best show honored & excited. yallaaaa @ramy if you haven’t watched the first two seasons … go. run. now. love you,” she captioned the announcement.

The show follows Ramy (played by Youssef), the son of immigrant Muslims living in New Jersey, as he navigates through a life that is torn between faith, community and new age ideals.

Last month, Bella supported half-sister Alana Hadid at her fashion line La Detresse’s summer collection soiree, held in New York.

Hadid went the extra mile wearing a La Detresse ensemble to the celebration. The 25-year-old model was seen in an eye-catching acid-wash tee and matching biking shorts, paired with a leather snakeskin jacket. Thigh-high boots, stacked necklaces and gold hoop earrings completed the look. Alana wore a similar co-ord outfit, donning an oversized tee with cowboy boots.

The siblings were joined by Emily Perlstein, who founded La Detresse with Alana in 2017, as the product of a mutual obsession about creating the perfect denim jacket. Over the years, the duo has produced a line of denim and knitwear in Los Angeles.

Bella has also always been vocal about her support for Palestine and its creatives. She uses her social media accounts to show her support for the diaspora and to raise awareness about the violence perpetrated against Palestinians.

Last year, she joined demonstrations in New York to protest Israeli attacks on Palestinians living in Gaza.

She frequently calls out Instagram for “shadow banning” her Palestine-related posts. “Are we not allowed to be Palestinian on Instagram? This, to me, is bullying,” she previously wrote on Instagram. “I am proud to be Palestinian.”
