As the fashion industry’s obsession with the impossibly Brigitte Bardot-like Gigi Hadid continues to grow, the modeling biz is welcoming a new, familiar face: Bella Hadid, Gigi’s 17-year-old sister, just signed with IMG Models. As the same prestigious agency that reps Gigi, IMG will no doubt help launch Bella’s career in the same way it did her sister’s.
Naturally, Bella announced the news on Instagram yesterday with a makeup-free selfie, portfolio in hand, while Gigi tweeted the following congratulatory message: “Yeaahh sissy! Congrats to my lil @bellahadid on officially being part of the @IMGmodels family! Proud of you! #signed #IMGigiAndBella.”
All this, just in time for New York Fashion Week.
