Whether it’s Kendall Jenner’s back-to-front jeans or Cara Delevingne’s Edam-like cut-out jumpsuit, there are some fashion trends that leave us scratching our heads.

Now, it’s the turn of Bella Hadid, who is currently displaying a rather unusual way of wearing her jewellery.

This week, the 23-year-old model is on holiday in St Bart’s after a busy few days relaxing with BFF and fellow model, Kendall Jenner in Miami and attending the CORE x Let Love Rule Benefit.

Enjoying some well-deserved R&R from her hectic supermodel lifestyle, the New York-based star has been posting several photos on Instagram of her time by the beach.

However, in several snaps we’ve been noticing that the Dior Beauty ambassador is wearing her watch back-to-front.

Over the weekend, the model posted a photograph of herself in a matching all-white ensemble with her friend Jesse Jo Stark at the launch of the Chrome Heart x Belle eyewear collection.

In one Instagram Story, the runway star wore a gold watch above a chained bracelet which appeared to have the crown – the bit which changes the time – sticking out on the left, and not the right.

The watch in question appears to be different to the £64,600 one that her ex boyfriend The Weeknd gifted her in May.

The gift is made of 18-carat pink gold and reportedly features ‘brilliant-cut diamonds that break over the dial, bezel and bracelet in an asymmetrical wave'.

The Audemars Piguet in Rose Oak Quartz is also owned by fellow California girl Kylie Jenner, according to Page Six.

In an interview with ELLE last year, the model admitted she’d never been a ‘big fan’ of watches.

‘I love a square face, and of course I love diamonds!’ she revealed.

‘It's not a casual watch at all but I love having it on my wrist, it makes me feel like a woman. And the 90s style is very my energy darling! It's funny that people my age see watches as an extra, I've never seen them as something wasn't totally needed.’

Hadid isn’t the first celebrity to wear a fashion item backwards in recent months.

In September, ELLE cover star Katie Holmes wore her 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Alix' shoulder bag backwards when she hit headlines for wearing a matching Khaite cashmere bralette and cardigan.

Discussing the fashion moment with us, the actress said of the style: ‘I was living my daily life and I didn’t really know if it was this way or that way, but I appreciate that that’s appreciated.’

Right, that’s it, we’re going out with our coat on back-to-front at lunchtime. If it’s good enough for Bella, Kendall and Katie…
