Bella Hadid Named One of Vogue's New Stars of 2015
Yolanda Foster's little girl is on the rise according to the fashion magazine.
Looks like Gigi Hadid has some friendly competition on her hands. Her sister, Bella, has just been named one of Vogue magazine's 9 Rising Model Stars to Watch in 2015.
"It's fair to say that good looks run in the family," the magazine touts. "She's appeared more on her mother's reality TV show than her sister but the younger Hadid is already making a name for herself on Instagram: Keep an eye out for her on the runway as well."
Bella is one of a handful of up-and-coming catwalkers to make the cut. Taylor Hill, Ine Neefs, Maartje Verhoef, Josie Canseco, Kelly Gale, Olympia Campbell, Romee Strijd and Gigi's pal, Hailey Baldwin, also ranked on the fashion bible's list.
Bella reflected on the honor on her Instagram account. "I've been workin really hard and can't wait for you guys to see what's coming for 2015!!!!!!" she shared. "Thank you @voguemagazine ! Wif my fellow @imgmodels baby the beautiful @taylor_hill. Seriously thankful for all of the opportunities I've gotten the past couple months and incredibly blessed how fast everything is happening! 2015!!!!!!"
And, scrolling through her Instagram account, it's clear that like her sister and her supermodel mom, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, she also has that special something.
The Vogue co-sign comes less than six months after the brunette 18-year-old signed a contract IMG Models. Just last month, she opened up about the advice her mom gave her prior to moving to New York City and kickstarting her fashion career.
"Especially moving to the city for the first time on my own, it was a lot of just, make sure you don't let people bring you down," she shared. "There is a lot of negativity in the industry, but you can turn it to positive, take it as constructive criticism. She wanted us to develop as human beings, rather than to be afraid of being judged only by the exterior."
