There’s more than one reason Bella Hadid’s latest selfie is going viral. Not only did the Instagram pic, shared by makeup artist Vincent Oquendo earlier this week, subtly announce that Bella had scored a coveted spot on the Victoria’s Secret fashion show runway, it also showed Bella wearing stilettos with her cargo pants around her ankles.

And naturally, the internet is freaking out.

While we think Bella looks pretty fierce in her skivvies-only mirror selfie, there seems to be a lot of ~chatter~ about the pic.

Some Instagram commenters were critical of her figure, while others seemed to take issue with her pants-less-ness.

The criticism got so intense that Vincent actually responded to the negativity in a comment of his own, writing,

He rounded out his respectful — but clear — instructions with a heart emoji.

There were, luckily, plenty of fans showering Bella with love in the comments section.

Now that’s more like it!

Look. Regardless of whether the photo is manipulated (as some people are suggesting) or not, we shouldn’t be saying negative things about a person’s body. We should, instead, be celebrating how confident she looks and feels — THAT’S what’s important. Hadid deserves all the love in the world and we can’t wait to see her stomp down that VS runway like it ain’t no thang.
