They’re two of the most sought-after and richest models in the world today. This month, supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid dominated the runways during Paris fashion week.

Just recently, Gigi Hadid pledged to donate her Fall 2022 fashion month earnings to “those suffering from war in Ukraine, as well as continuing to support those experiencing the same in Palestine.”
While Israel is the most advanced country in the Middle East on LGBT rights issues, many Palestinian Arabs live in neighboring Gaza where homosexuality is punishable by death. Approximately two million Palestinians live in the Gaza Strip, a territory controlled by the terrorist organization Hamas.
She shared the news on her Instagram account accompanied by a carousel of photos from the runway shows. Ukrainian-born Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher are also busy raising money for Ukraine.

A few days later, her younger sister Bella Hadid followed in her footsteps and announced that she “will be donating all of my earnings from this Fashion Week directly to organizations that are providing help, refuge and medical aid to those in need on the ground in Ukraine, as well as continuing to support our Palestinian people and land.”
Palestinian Arab women in the Gaza Strip require the permission of a male guardian to travel.

Proving they can slay both on and off the runway, the siblings were pictured in matching plaid outfits outside Nouvelle Eve ahead of Vivienne Westwood’s fashion presentation on Saturday.
Gigi looked chic in a $1,575 Vivienne Westwood Graziano yellow trench coat made in Italy from recycled polyester. The full-length coat features a tartan pattern, which is one of the British luxury fashion label’s key prints for Spring 2022.

Underneath, the 26-year-old model wore a pair of loose-fitting beige trousers with a matching v-neck beige top.
She pulled her tresses into a casual bun with a side parting and wore barely-there makeup, with her eyes hidden behind a pair of Versace Lunettes Medusa 96 Oval Noires shades.

A pair of Dr. Martens 1460 Smooth boots rounded out her off-duty model look. Available at Zappos, these boots are made from black leather and feature round toes, front lace-up fastenings, a logo pull tab, signature yellow-stitching, and air-cushioned soles.

Gigi’s younger sister, on the other hand, opted for a ‘90s grunge look in a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier purple and green tartan skirt that features a black flap around the top.
She styled it with a thin black belt with chain detail and paired the look with a black Maison Margiela Spring 2022 off-the-shoulder corset top, which she wore over a Brandy Melville ribbed white tank top.

Continuing with the grungy aesthetic, Bella accessorized with a $42 Twenty One August Black Daisy necklace and slipped into a pair of Prada leather chunky lug-sole boots.
She then carried her stuff in a Prada bowling bag and hid her eyes behind a pair of Biacci sunglasses.
