Gigi and Bella Hadid are hot on the supermodel scene – gracing runways, red carpets, and magazine covers all over the world. They’re beautiful, successful, and bring the drama in their personal lives (did you see how Selena snaked The Weekend right out from under Bella’s bed sheets?). Not only do we love to see them strut their stuff and live the glam life, we are also totally enamored and completely envious of that sisterly bond. But, are they really as close as they seem?
They Were Basically Born Besties
With matching blonde locks and adorable, sweet smiles, these two are only a year apart. From day one, they’ve been inseparable, with Gigi taking on the protective older sister role. They remained tight up through their teen years. But, has the competitive world of modeling taken a toll on their relationship?
Insta Shout Outs
If it’s not on Instagram, is it even real? These stunners regularly post TBTs of their early days and declarations of their love and pride for one another. In November, 2017, Bella posted this caption: “…how lucky am I that I get to have my own personal princess as a sister!!!??! Congratulations my beautiful G to be recognized as Glamour Woman Of The Year. I am so lucky and proud to call you my best friend, sister, and icon.” That’s true sisterly love – or, is it just for show?
They’re all About Fam
Both parents, Yolanda Foster and Mohamed Hadid, as well as their younger model brother, Anwar, all appear to be close and actively participate in both girls’ lives, typically sitting front row at their runway shows. But, is all this family love real? Or, do the parents just want to keep the peace between the girls?
They Support Their Romantic Relationships
Gigi’s long-time boyfriend, Zayn Malik, and Bella have a special brother-sisterly bond. They even often go out as a trio – but is three ever a crowd?
That Time Gigi Got into a Fight with Bella’s Ex
When The Weekend dissed Bella for Selena Gomez, you bet sister Gigi had her back. Bella was reportedly screaming at The Weekend after the 2016 Victoria Secret Fashion Show after party. She may be composed on the runway, but when it comes to her sis, she doesn’t hold back.
That Time Bella Saved Gigi on the Runway
Gigi lost a shoe right before heading out to walk the finale of Anna Sui’s New York Fashion Week runway show. Who was right there to carry her to the end? That’s right, Bella ended up saving her sister by holding her up and walking with her the entire length of the runway. The audience loved seeing this display of support for her older sister. The modeling world can be unforgiving at times, but these two can really do no wrong when together.
They Battle the Paparazzi Together
It’s not easy being young and famous. When this duo heads out into the real world, everyone wants a look. It’s not surprising that the paparazzi take their jobs way too far too. But in traditional Gigi fashion, she won’t put up with it – especially when her little sis is in the line of fire. She isn’t afraid to yell and push through the crowds to get her sister and herself to safety.
They’re Happy to Work Together
They’ve been on all the major international fashion magazine covers individually, from “Elle” to “Vogue” to “Bazaar.” But they made a bold move and appeared on a cover together for “V Magazine.” The shoot was edgy, sexy, and a first for the sibling powerhouse.
They’re Both VS Angels
In addition to taking on their first major magazine cover together, both sisters are officially Victoria’s Secret Angels and they had the opportunity to walk in their first VS Angel runway show together in 2016. Were they competing for the spotlight? In an unexpected (and disappointing for fans) turn of events, Gigi didn’t end up walking in the 2017 VS fashion show. She tweeted, “I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to China this year. Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!! Can’t wait to tune in with everyone to see the beautiful show I know it will be, and already can’t wait for next year! 🙂 x.” Very strange that she offered no explanation as to why she wouldn’t be there. Her sister Bella, however, still walked.
They Share Famous Friends
In a lot of sister-sister relationships, there is some rivalry when it comes to friends – and these two hang with only the most famous of them. Luckily, they roll with the same squad, with no arguments over who is friends with who. Or, is there some jealousy?
They Love to Have Fun
Even when they’re working, their bond is evident. They still manage to joke around and make each other laugh, even in a serious business such as modeling.
They Aren’t Afraid to Stuff Their Faces
Rarely do you see supermodels eating. But, these two have no problem sharing a meal together and catching up on their latest modeling gigs and boyfriend drama, no doubt.
They Hold Hands
When they’re together, they’re usually holding hands – perhaps because they’re often battling the paps or because their bond is so tight. They stay close in almost every situation and let each other and the world know they have each others’ backs, no matter what. They send the message that their bond is basically unbreakable.
They Aren’t Annoying at all IRL
