–Yolanda Hadid talks about supermodel daughters–Yolanda Hadid talks about supermodel daughters


That’s the advice Yolanda Hadid gave her supermodel daughters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid growing up.

The model mother, 54, said her daughters had made careers out of much more than their genetically-blessed looks.

“My basic advice has always been that there are 100 girls out there who are as beautiful as you are, or maybe more beautiful, that deserve success as much as you do,” Yolanda told News Corp Australia today.

“So how are you going to set yourself apart?”

Her advice? “You always want to be the first one arriving to set, the hardest working girl there, acknowledging everybody, not just people who can make you successful.

“A pretty face only gets you that far. Pretty faces come and go.”

This tact has obviously worked for Gigi, 22, and Bella, 21, who were both on Forbes’ list of the top-earning supermodels of 2017 (Gigi raked in $US9.5 million at No. 5 while Bella pocketed $US6 million and was No. 9).

With their huge careers, Gigi and Bella are no strangers to attention — whether it be on or off the runway.

Gigi today announced her breakup from boyfriend of two years, Zayn Malik (the former One Direction member has reportedly unfollowed Gigi and Yolanda on Instagram). Bella previously had a much-publicised relationship with Starboy singer The Weeknd.

“I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared,” Gigi said in a statement on Twitter today.

“I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for.”

Yolanda would not comment today on the breakup. But she said she took the attention on her daughters’ private and professional lives — including from the paparazzi — “from a more spiritual perspective”.

“A lot of their lives they’re very protective about and they don’t share,” Yolanda said.

“They have whole other lives out there that nobody knows anything about.

“You create certain cocoons of privacy that all that stuff cannot penetrate. It is part of their industry today however way you look at it.”

New York-based Yolanda, who has had a public battle with Lyme disease, is the host of reality TV series, Making a Model, which tracks budding models and their “momagers” in their quest for catwalk fame.

So what does the mother of two of the world’s most-followed models think about Instagram — a platform that helped make her daughters famous?

“The millenials have direct connection to people globally,” Yolanda said.

“I think that the negative of it is that their job never ends — it is a 24/7 pressure that is on you, where people are watching you under a microscope, judging not only the good but quite often, the bad.

“I think it’s a lot to handle for anybody, not just models.”
