Bella Hadid Admits It’s ‘Hard’ Being Compared To Gigi

Bella Hadid has admitted that it can be tough being the little sister of world-famous model Gigi.

Gigi, 20, has been in the business since childhood while 18-year-old Bella is a relative newcomer to the industry, which makes her feel a little self-conscious.

This is despite the fact that the siblings are totally different. In comparison to girlie blonde Gigi, Bella is stunningly striking with her brunette locks and piercing blue eyes.

Now Bella has opened up to Seventeen magazine about making her own mark on the catwalk.

‘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,’ says Bella.

‘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.’

Gigi and Bella’s closeness was evident on the runway at New York Fashion Week, where they both walked in the Tommy Hilfiger SS16 show.

And it seems as though Bella is easing into her new career, revealing exactly how she looked so incred in that mesh top and bikini bottom combo.

‘I eat a lot of pizza and really unhealthy food. I definitely gain weight and I’m not naturally thin,’ she continues.

‘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.’

And what about Gigi? Well, she admits: ‘She can eat whatever she wants. It’s really annoying.’

But Bella is still happy to heap praise on her sister, adding: ‘What people don’t really know is that she’s actually hilarious.’
