Bella Hadid Wants Haters to Stop Comparing Her to Gigi
Bella Hadid is over the comparisons.
The 19-year-old model and Seventeen magazine’s November cover model has scored a campaign with Balmain and recently walked for Kanye West’s Yeezy collection at New York Fashion Week, and is quickly rising in the fashion world, but somehow she can’t seem to escape the comparisons to her older sister, Gigi Hadid.
“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,” Bella revealed. “But I’m her biggest supporter, and she’s my biggest supporter. We’re not competitive at all.”
Bella works hard and is passionate about her modeling career. She tells the magazine she can’t resist the junk food once in a while, and neither can her sister. “I eat a lot of pizza and really unhealthy food. I definitely gain weight and I’m not naturally thin,” she says. “[Gigi] can eat whatever she wants. It’s really annoying.”
“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.”
Bella recently shared a picture of her amazing figure on her official Instagram, writing “if you ain’t workin on sundays, somebody else is.”
Bella also talked about her celebrity doppelganger: 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.’”
