In the interview, Hadid spoke about how she wishes she didn’t get a nose job at 14-years-old.

“I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors,” she says. “I think I would have grown into it.” Her heritage is Dutch from her mother Yolanda Hadid’s side and Jordanian from her father Mohamed Hadid.

The Metaverse is a Dead-end for the Fashion Industry

The fashion industry is the latest culprit to drink the proverbial metaverse Kool-Aid. While fashion houses are dubbing this new digital universe as the next frontier for fashion, I sense a dangerous bubble brewing.

Non-fungible token (NFT) technology and the metaverse could present some interesting opportunities for the fashion industry, but digital clothes should not be one of them.

Digital clothes for digital avatars certainly feel like the latest entry.

These Non-Alcoholic Bottle Shops Are Shaking Up The Industry

At first, the number of products available at her shop could be counted on one hand, maybe two. But after nearly two years in business, she’s expanded to stock 230 products from about 75 different brands—and her options span alcohol-removed wines, non-alcoholic beer, spirit alternatives, ready-to-drink cocktails, and “functional beverages,” a growing category in the industry that includes CBD, adaptogens, and other additives that have some effect on the mind or body.

The number of options is dizzying these days. And major brands are getting in on the action, too. In the beer world, everyone from domestic powerhouses like Budweiser and Stella Artois to smaller craft brewers across the country seem to be bottling up ABV-free brews, and WhistlePig kicked off the month by releasing a non-alcoholic rye.

“Pretty much everyone’s reaction is, ‘Wow, I had no idea there was so much variety available,’” Babitz says. Because there
