Bella Hadid goes braless in an elegant sheer dress as she joins glamorous models Coco Rocha, Candice Swanepoel and Winnie Harlow at the 77th annual Cannes Film Festival premiere of Donald Trump biopic The Apprentice


On a night dedicated to the life and times of America’s most divisive President it was the fashion industry’s most sought-after model who stole the spotlight. 

With Donald Trump nowhere in sight as the 77th annual Cannes Film Festival continued on Monday evening, Bella Hadid was among the early arrivals at the first official screening of The Apprentice. 

The forthcoming film sees Sebastian Stan play Trump during the flourishing early years of his business career, notably his working relationship with controversial lawyer Roy Cohn, who died of an AIDS-related illness in 1986. 

Arriving on the Croisette ahead of its world premiere, Bella proved to be the event’s biggest talking point by electing to go braless beneath her fitted sheer evening dress. 

The American supermodel, 27, completed her red carpet look with a pair of strappy metallic heels, while her brunette hair was effortlessly styled with a conventional side-parting.  

Production on The Apprentice began in late November. The film follows Trump in the ’70s and ’80s as he attempts to establish his real estate empire on the back of his father Fred Trump’s properties. 

The Apprentice is directed by the Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi, who shot the critically acclaimed Persian-language crime thriller Holy Spider, released in 2022.

Succession star Jeremy Strong, who will portray disgraced — and eventually disbarred — lawyer Roy Cohn, will be prominently featured as the younger Trump’s mentor.
