The Hadid sisters are the fastest growing stars in the fashion world. Here’s a closer look at them!
It seems like the fashion industry is full of a new generation of ‘IT’ girls. A pair of sisters in particular has been in the spotlight in recent times. Gigi and Bella Hadid are the newest power sisters on the block, and have taken the industry by storm.
Gigi Hadid was born Jelena Noura to Palestinian real estate developer Mohamed Hadid and model Yolanda Foster on April 23, 1995. Her sister Isabella “Bella” Khair was born on October 9, 1996. Both girls started out impressively. While Gigi started modeling at two for Baby Guess, Bella began competing in equestrian events when she was only three. Today, both sisters have a combined following of over eight million on Instagram. While Gigi has been modeling on the runway for a while now, Bella has followed suit with many designers now signing up both siblings for their shows.
After completing high school and then attending The New School, Gigi made a comeback to modeling in 2012. In 2014, she made her New York Fashion Week debut. Since then, she has walked the ramp for labels like Moschino, Michael Kors, Tom Ford, and many more. She has also graced the covers of many top magazines around the world. Bella too, has varied interests. She studied at Parsons, and is also training to represent the United States in the 2016 Olympics. She is a nationally ranked equestrian. She has also had her turn on the runway, for labels like Moschino. She has appeared in magazine editorials and on covers with her daring sense of style.
Gigi’s off duty looks are typically Californian. She loves casual wear including denims, and often sports crop tops. Though she seems to prefer a neutral palette, sometimes she adds pops of color to great effect. On the red carpet, her styling is impeccable. She is not afraid to embrace her curves and wears flattering silhouettes. Blessed with sun-kissed skin and flowing locks, her beauty looks are often understated, though she has been known to rock a stylish cat eye every now and then.
Bella is more edgy than her sister, and prefers a darker palette. Black is a staple in her wardrobe and she is usually spotted with more than a hint of the color. When it comes to her beauty regime, the brunette seems to prefer stark and slightly gothic looks. A sharply defined eye and contouring are her go-to choices, with the addition of a nude lip color. Her radiant skin finishes off what can only be defined as a “polished” look.
Even though both sisters are in the same profession, they seem to be immune to sibling rivalry. They run in the same social circles, joining other models and IT girls like Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, and Hailey Baldwin among others. Although hints of a feud keep cropping up on the grapevine, the two seem inseparable. They are usually spotted attending events together, even holding hands in a gesture of mutual support!
The teenage heartthrobs sure have a long way to go in terms of career and fame. As they navigate the big bad world of fame, here’s hoping that the two will be each other’s “somebody to lean on”.
