Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid are some of the most well-known people in the fashion industry. Not to mention, they’re siblings born to Yolanda Hadid.
Yolanda, 56, has been modeling since she was 16 and taught her children the dos and don’ts of surviving in such a cut-throat industry.
Yolanda was born in the Netherlands. She married real estate developer Mohamad Hadid in 1994 before the couple divorced in 2000. Before her marriage, her maiden name was Yolanda van den Herik.
Yolanda originally signed with Ford Models and worked in Paris, Milan, New York, Tokyo, etc. She even appeared in Vogue. But after modeling for 15 years, she decided to settle down and raise a family.
Yolanda and Mohamad raised Gigi, Bella, and Anwar on a farm in Santa Barbara before their marriage ended.
Mohamad became known as a real estate tycoon and built several properties and Ritz Carlton hotels around the world.
After the couple split up, Yolanda married David Foster. It was around this time she starred in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Her children occasionally made appearances on the reality show. But for the most part, they stayed out of the spotlight until they started modeling.
Yolanda and David broke up in 2017.
Gigi Hadid, born Jelena Nour Hadid, didn’t sign to IMG Models until she was 17-years-old. But, she had experience before then. Hadid was discovered by Paul Marciano of Guess when she was about two-years-old.
She appeared on several Baby Guess campaigns. That said, Gigi didn’t continue modeling after that. She stopped until she was a teenager.
Since her career has taken off, the 24-year-old has walked in several fashion week shows. She’s appeared on the cover of Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and 35 international Vogue magazine covers.
In 2015, she walked her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. And in 2016, she became the global ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger. That same year, she even co-designed a collection with Tommy Hilfiger that was released during New York fashion week.
Gigi’s net worth is $29 million.
Funny thing, Bella wasn’t interested in being a model. “There wasn’t really one time in my life where I was like, ‘I want to be a model!’ It was more Gigi’s thing,” Hadid told Teen Vogue.
When Bella moved to New York it was so she could pursue a career in photography. But, she ended up in front of the camera as opposed to behind it.
Since beginning her career, Bella has signed with IMG Models (like her sister) and walked several runways. Hadid has walked for Chanel, Tom Ford, Topshop, Balmain, Givenchy, etc.
The 23-year-old even followed her sister’s footsteps with covers in Vogue and Elle.
Bella’s net worth is $25 million.
At only 20, Anwar is the youngest Hadid sibling. But just like his sisters, he signed with IMG Models.
In 2015, Anwar made his debut in Nylon. He also appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue. Hadid made his fashion week debut in 2017, walking in the Zadig & Voltaire show.
Anwar isn’t just interested in modeling. He loves jewelry and recently launched a unisex jewelry label. The label is called Martyre and he created the idea with his friends, Yoni Laham and Ryan Benson.
According to the website, “The brand is committed to exploring new concepts in jewelry while upholding tradition collaborating with the most skillful artisans in Los Angeles to create timeless pieces for men & women with collector’s appeal.”
Anwar’s net worth is $4 million.
