And what happens if one gets a modelling job that the other really wanted
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
Gigi and Bella Hadid have been dominating catwalks and fashion campaigns for almost three years now. The models have become the ultimate #sistergoals – Gigi stood supportively beside her sister when Bella bumped into The Weeknd during the H&M Studio Spring/Summer 2017 show earlier this year, and Bella helped Gigi down the runway when her shoe fell off during New York Fashion Week last month.
But aside from the public shows of support, and the Insta-love that these two bestow on each other – what is it really like for the sisters to constantly compete with each other for the same modelling jobs?
The younger of the two, Bella, decided to open up about how they deal with the competitive nature of their jobs – and she makes it sounds very easy.
Talking to Harpers Bazaar Arabia, she said that their approach was a pivotal part of their successes.
‘Most of the time our markets are completely different. And if we get booked on a job and she gets it or I get it, we’re both happy for each other,’ Bella admitted.
‘There are enough jobs in the world for both of us. There’s no reason for us to be mad at each other or competitive. So if she gets it, then good for her.’
But there is a clause in place incase one gets a job that the other really, really wants.
‘We’re in the family so she can buy me a pair of shoes,’ Bella joked.
Sounds like these two have it absolutely sorted.
