Another day, another major Bella Hadid moment. On Tuesday, Paper Magazine released its newest cover starring the youngest Hadid sister, proving that the Instamodel isn't done taking over 2016 just yet. In the publication's "Outspoken" issue, the 20-year-old is seen experimenting with a slew of edgy beauty looks, including bedazzled lips, neon eyeshadow and platinum-blonde hair. Never too shy to #freethenipple — see her Vogue Paris shoot earlier this year — Hadid goes topless for a few of Paper's photos, too. 

In the cover story's accompanying interview, Hadid chats with Paper's Abby Schreiber about criticism over her physique ("I feel the healthiest I've been in a long time."); her awareness of being typecast as the "mysterious, sullen sister" ("People say that I don't smile, or that I don't have a personality."); and her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show debut in Paris, noting that she was turned down for a spot last year and that "everything happens for a reason." 

As for what else Hadid hopes to accomplish in her career, she reveals that she wants to get into acting. "I think it would be really fun, because it's exciting to be in front of the camera on film instead of just pictures," Hadid tells Paper. With more than three weeks left in the year, we wouldn't be surprised if she lands another coveted gig soon.
