The fashion world is full of gorgeous and famous women, but none are more popular than the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella. Born to Jordanian-American real estate developer Mohamed Anwar Hadid and former model Yolanda Hadid, the ladies are industry favorites for many reasons.
Gigi and Bella Hadid are seen everywhere, from the runway to billboards portraying their different endorsements. And reputed brands all want their products to be advertised by such highly-paid models. And if we look at the Hadid sister’s childhood pics, we cannot help but say that they were born to be models.
Most would consider the sisters to be the most sought-after models of this generation. And despite their not-so-humble beginning both Gigi and Bella have made a big name for themselves. They have amassed enough fame and wealth throughout their career to disprove their haters. But there is still a question that people cannot answer at first glance, Who is the oldest Hadid sister? Is Gigi older than Bella, or are they the same age? Find out all about them in this article.
Who Is Older Gigi Or Bella Hadid?
It is known throughout the fashion world that Gigi Hadid is the older sister of Bella Hadid. Gigi or Jelena Noura Gigi Hadid was born on April 23, 1995, and is the eldest daughter of former model Yolanda Hadid. The Beverly Hills power couple also had 2 other children after that, Bella or Isabella Hadid, born on October 9, 1996, and Anwar Hadid, born June 22, 1999.
Gigi Hadid may be the oldest of her sibling, but she is in no way the only successful one. Her younger sister Bella Hadid is also a well-renowned model and was named Model of the Year by Model.com in 2016. Their younger brother, Anwar is also a model of some fame. The sisters also have two older paternal half-sisters; Marielle and Alana, but they are not a part of the modeling industry.
Gigi Hadid has had a long modeling career that started at the age of just 2. This international supermodel’s first gig had been at Baby Guess when she was just a toddler. But she did not turn her full attention toward modeling till 2011 when she signed with IMG Models. In 2013, after her High School graduation, the model moved to New York to study criminal psychology. But her studies were put on hold for her modeling career.
Since 2014 Gigi has worked with famous brands like Prada, Burberry, Chanel, Versace, Balmain, and many more. Her face has also graced the covers of magazines like Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, W, V, and Wall Street Journal Magazine, along with major Vogue titles like the British and Italian Vogue.
Bella Hadid, Gigi’s younger sister on the other hand started modeling at the age of 16. Her first gig in the industry had been a Flynn Skye commercial project and since then her career had taken off with much success. Apart from winning the prestigious Model of the Year Title, she has also worked with reputed designers like Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Moschino, Missoni, Balmain, Nike, and Tommy Hilfiger. But apart from modeling, this famous icon has also released her own clothing line called ‘Robert Riley’s.
Both sisters are quite famous, some of which can be attributed to their social media presence. But Gigi Hadid refuses to mix business with pleasure, thus keeping her Instagram feed with a following of 75.3 Million full of pictures that are uniquely her own, not of her campaigns.
What’s The Age Difference Between Gigi And Bella Hadid?
The sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid are just one year apart in age. Born in 1995, Gigi is the oldest daughter of Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid, with Bella being the middle child. Being so close in age to each other also meant that the siblings are quite close in real life.
For Gigi’s 27th birthday in 2022, the supermodel received a sweet tribute from her sister Bella. With throwback pictures from their childhood as well as shared precious moments from photoshoots, the love between the two sisters was apparent.
Bella Hadid, who has 54.4 Million followers on Instagram shared the special message on the social media platform while tagging her sister. The photos along with the heartfelt caption were indeed proof of Bella’s love towards her sister who had been a guide to her all her life.
Both Bella and Gigi Hadid are names that we see splashed across various fashion magazines.
Their beauty is luminous and diverse enough to make people doubt if they are indeed they are sisters. But Bella and Gigi are siblings who are quite close to one another.
Even though the sisters were just born a year apart, the supermodel duo is apt at working together and being a force to reckon with.
