Bella Hadid Is a Leather-Clad Badass in The Weeknd’s New Video



Models have been inspiring their musician partners since before Iman and David Bowie hooked up, so it’s no surprise that The Weeknd (real name: Abel Tesfaye) tapped supermodel girlfriend (and Olympic hopeful!) Bella Hadid to appear in his latest music video.

The new video for “In the Night,” from the album Beauty Behind the Madness, just landed online, and while there isn’t really much of a plot per se, Hadid is clearly distinguishable as one of the main characters alongside Tesfaye—and she’s a motorcycle-riding, nightclub-dancing, knife-wielding one at that. Fast-forward to the five-and-a-half-minute mark to see her in a badass red leather bodysuit and thigh-high boots.

Shot in Brooklyn and directed by duo BRTHR, the clip was teased on Twitter earlier this week and premiered last night on MTV.
