We’ve seen the Taylor Swift concert and music video, as well as Kardashian-Jenner family member sightings but Gigi and Bella Hadid have been rising through the ranks and making a name for themselves. Read on for more details.

Having their first taste of stardom from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, where they starred with model mom Yolanda, there is more to this duo aside from being popular and genetically blessed.

The roster of their celebrity friends may include Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Lily Aldrigde, and Cara Delevingne and romantic involvements with Joe Jonas (Gigi) and Abel Tesfaye, also known as The Weeknd (Bella) but let’s get to know them better, shall we?

With the apples not falling far from the tree, both sisters are signed with IMG Models. Gigi’s runway gigs include Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Michael Kors, to name a few. She has also modeled for Teen Vogue and Sports Illustrated, as well as campaigns for Tom Ford, Guess, and Maybelline. The younger Hadid, Bella has done work for Elle UK, Teen Vogue, Tom Ford, and is the face of Botkier’s Spring 2015 campaign.

The Daily Beast reports that Gigi, 20 and Bella, 18 are currently both in college. In 2013, Gigi moved to New York to attend the New School while last year, Bella recently joined her sister to take up photography at Parson’s.

“It’s been really nice because I’ve been shooting photography for as long as I can remember, and I know that some photographers really appreciate when we can talk about it, because I know about cameras and I know about lenses and movement and stuff like that, because I shoot other people, and they’ll fix lighting and I love lighting.” Bella said.

Quirks include minor scandals, as Bella raced through a stop sign in LA back in 2014 (and was pulled over by the police) when wasn’t even legal to drive yet. Gigi on the other hand, had a leaked video where she appears to be snorting cocaine. It turned out to be a prank and Gigi took to Twitter, saying: “If u actually watch the video there is nothing on the counter .5 sec’s before you see that image…It’s not only impossible but insane to me…Besides for doing the supposed in general, I’d be an idiot to do that at a WORK EVENT in front of hundreds of people/press. I’m insulted.”

What’s next for these two? The power sisters were just seen visiting a modeling agency in New York City over the week. (via Just Jared Jr.) For sure we’ll be seeing more of them on print, TV, and everyone’s favorite, social media.
