Bella and Gigi Hadid are two of the biggest models gracing the catwalks and heading campaigns for major designers. The sisters both walked in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show (2016) and are also known for their work together in the Fendi and Moschino Spring/Summer campaigns together. They’ve both won awards such as “Model of the Year”, “International Model of the Year” and “Choice Model.”
In 2016, Gigi walked for: Versace, Chanel, Elie Saab, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Miu Miu, Balmain, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Fenty x Puma, Isabel Marant, and Giambattista Valli. She has also shot editorials for VMAN, Elle, Grazia, Cleo, Vogue, Sports Illustrated, Paper magazine, Vanity Fair and V Magazine. Hadid has also starred in campaigns for Guess, Versace, Penshoppe, Balmain F/W 2015, Topshop, Max Mara, and Stuart Weitzman.
Similar to Gigi, Bella Hadid made her Chanel Couture debut during Paris Haute Couture S/S Fashion Week, and she walked exclusively for Givenchy. She also walked for Chanel and Miu Miu at their shows in Paris Fashion Week in March 2016, as well as walking for Fenty x Puma in New York Fashion Week in February 2016. She has appeared on the covers of Seventeen Magazine, V Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Allure, Glamour, Exit magazine, W magazine British GQ, Flare, and Paper Magazine.
The stylists for RCFU chose a look of them backstage at a Tommy Hilfiger show featuring bold patterns and color block. Gigi is shown in a cropped, red/blue/white patterned top, with low-rise leather pants, over-the-knee boots, and a chunky belt. Bella is shown with a similar red/blue/white color block mini-skirt with a cropped yellow polo top — again paired with a chunky belt.
The looks were re-created with similar patterns, textures, and textiles, with Stephanie wearing a blue cropped tee with a black-and-white striped envelope skirt. Kenya is styled in a bold hounds tooth-patterned jacket, along with a leather cropped tee, jeans, and black over-the-knee boots.
