Arabella then and now: A timeline of her pre-Love Island years

All I have to say is wow


Arabella Chi might be one of the best looking contestants Love Island has ever had. There, I've said it. She's a model, has perfect hair and natural good looks. She seems chilled and down to earth and it's sad for the rest of us really. But what about Arabella before Love Island? What did she look like then?

Let's go on a journey through Arabella's pre-Love Island years:

Arabella was adorable AF when she was a child

When she was younger, she was way blonder. She was destined to be a model because since day one she has been stylish. We're talking personalised dungarees, hair braids and holiday tattoos. Iconic.

Even in 2013, she looked younger but was still unreal!!!

It looks like Arabella has been modelling since she was young. Her Instagram is filled with modelling shoots, even way back in 2013.

Sure, she's changed her hair slightly, grown up in her face and stopped using the AWFUL Instagram filters everyone used to love, but that's about all.

Her Instagram pictures prove she has always been incredible looking

She has grown her eyebrows out, styled her hair more wavy and she alternates between how blonde her hair is a lot.

And now, this is how Arabella entered the Love Island villa:

Her villa entrance was pretty iconic

It's just not fair.

But has her personality changed in the villa?!

So far, Arabella has come across as pretty laid back and chilled. However, Love Island new girl Arabella Chi looks like she's left all of her dramas outside the villa. Her ex, who just happens to be Love Island 2018's Charlie Frederick, is claiming they were still seeing each other before she entered the villa.

He's posted screen shots on his Instagram story of alleged conversations between him and Arabella, that appear to be from within the last two weeks. She does not come across as chilled in them. The texts appear to show her saying she could "do with him here", calling him "baby" and asking him to "come over". It's messy. Read all of the screenshots here. 👀
