Bella Hadid is claiming the spotlight on the November 2015 issue of ‘Seventeen’ magazine, where she opens up about her modeling career — and how ‘hard’ it is to be compared to fellow model, sis, (and BFF!), Gigi Hadid.
With her brown locks and piercing blue eyes, Bella Hadid‘s look is all her own — but she admitted that being compared to her older sis, Gigi, isn’t easy. The star covers the November 2015 issue of Seventeen magazine, where she suits up in stylish fall clothes for the fashionable spread. We got the chance to see both Bella and Gigi take the runway by storm, together, during New York Fashion Week — and it was so cool seeing them support one another.
“I just have to remind myself that she’s been doing this forever. I can’t keep comparing myself to her because we’re so different. But people still love to compare and contrast us—what’s better about her or what’s not that good about me—and it’s hard because people are really mean. But I’m her biggest supporter, and she’s my biggest supporter. We’re not competitive at all,” Bella said about how she handles being compared to big sis, Gigi.
Bella also dished on how she stays fit. “I eat a lot of pizza and really unhealthy food. I definitely gain weight and I’m not naturally thin. I’m really self-conscious if I go to trainers, so I just do stuff on my own. I go on the treadmill or do yoga and Pilates if I can,” she said.
While people may compare them, the truth is Bella and Gigi are BFFs! “What people don’t really know is that she’s actually hilarious. And she can eat whatever she wants. It’s really annoying,” she said about her older sis.
The model definitely has a distinct look — but we would be lying if we said we didn’t notice her striking resemblance to Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence! “I never saw it. But there are some photos that it’s really weird and we look very similar. People say it all the time. I’ll walk onto set and five people will say, ‘You know who you look like?’ and I’m like, ‘Jennifer Lawrence?’ Then they’ll say, ‘How’d you know I was going to say that?’ and I’ll go, ‘Because I hear it five times a day,’” she said.
