Bella Hadid works out in Shanghai gym

She is now flying the Hadid flag solo in China after her sister was forced to pull out.

And Bella was hard at work at the gym on Friday in preparation for Sunday's Victoria's Secret Show.

She certainly wasn't alone in her last minute prep - models from Lily Aldridge to Karlie Kloss flocked to Shaghai for the underwear show.

Bella, 21, shared several snaps of her workout while her model peers filed into the city ahead of the illustrious gig.

Bella meanwhile was already in Shanghai and toning up for Monday's catwalk appearance.
