The reason for her not having a stylist runs deep. 

The 25-year-old has struggled with anxiety amid pressure she has faced during her career, but Bella has become more philosophical about her style over recent years. 

"I have not had a stylist in a long time, maybe two years now. I was in such a weird place mentally that it was complicated for me to get out of the house and put an outfit together, especially with the anxiety of [paparazzi] being outside and all of that," she told WSJ magazine.

"In the last year, it was really important for me to learn that even if people talk about my style or if they like it or if they don't, it doesn't matter because it's my style. When I leave the house in the morning, what I think about is: Does this make me happy? Do I feel good in this, and do I feel comfortable?"

She has turned to exercise to improve her mental and physical health. 

"I realise now that my body is my temple," she says.
