When we fell in love with the tiny Michelle Tanner played by the adorable Olsen twins in TV series, Full House, little did we realise that they would become the super-stylish darlings of the fashion industry one day. The trend has seen an upswing in recent times. Siblings who are partners in style are taking the world by storm. Who are these legendary siblings and what makes them power players in the field? Here’s a compilation of some of the best-known names in the industry.
Gigi and Bella Hadid
They are often called the ‘It Girls’ of fashion, yet they are as different from each other as chalk and cheese. Gigi is a beach-blonde bombshell while Bella is a dazzling brunette. The girls began modelling when they moved to New York from Los Angeles. Gigi made her debut in the fashion world in the Top 50 Models in 2014 and some years later, she was named International Model of the Year at Models.com. She hosted the 2016 iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards in Toronto last year and also co-designed a capsule collection with Tommy Hilfiger. Her sister, Bella made her debut in New York Fashion week. Later, she made her first short film appearance in Tyler Ford’s film, Private. What makes the sisters so special, according to insiders, is the fact that they are hugely talented and down-to -earth despite having grown up with celebrity parents and great wealth.
Kylie and Kendall Jenner
Kylie Jenner and Kendall Nicole Jenner shot to fame when they featured on the list of The 25 Most Influential Teens a few years ago. Despite the fact that they were initially best known for appearing in the E! reality television show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the young girls are both in-demand fashion models today. Over the years, they have launched cosmetics, shoe and handbag collections, a clothing line and so much more. They have been the face of several ad campaigns and have been chosen for runway spots with some of the top designers in the fashion industry. With a huge fan following on social media, the sisters are greatly admired for their intelligence, beauty and savvy business sense.
Dree and Langley Fox Hemingway
The lovely sisters Dree and Langley Fox Hemingway are well known on the fashion circuit. Although great grand daughters of the famous writer Ernest Hemingway, the two have rarely used their celebrity background to get ahead in their careers. Dree made her first appearance in the modelling world when she walked the runways for Givenchy in Paris. Some months later, she was chosen to feature in the Calvin Klein resort show in New York and later in the Topshop show in London. Her sister Langley is a part-time model and artist and she is one of the few youngsters who can straddle two worlds with aplomb.
Poppy and Cara Delevingne
Poppy and Cara Delevingne, the young superstars on the runways, have been on the top of the popularity charts. Poppy became a model when she was spotted by the founder of a model management company and has been a hit on the fashion runways ever since. She went on to model for Burberry, Laura Ashley and many more top notch brands. Her sister Cara, however, is both a fashion model and an actress. As the winner of the Model of the Year award in 2014, Cara has appeared in many fashion shows for luxury brands. She has acted in movies like Paper Towns, London Fields and Suicide Squad.
