They say blood is thicker than water and judging from the rise in siblings taking over the fashion industry, we’d definitely agree.
From legendary sibling power players like designers and identical twins Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared 2 to the extremely photogenic and whimsically named Smith siblings who not only model but also play in a rock band called “The Atomics,” there’s no denying that siblings are running the game and doing it well. Going into the business with your family is definitely a boon – besides the obvious novelty factor, having the support of loved ones is an undeniable advantage.
After all, fashion’s a tough industry to break into and there’s nothing better than knowing that your family has your back. We’ve rounded up the most stylish siblings taking the fashion world by storm.
Gigi and Bella Hadid: Gigi and Bella Hadid have dominated runways and editorial alike for the past few seasons. Between Gigi’s golden girl looks and Bella’s edgy glamour, it looks like they’ll continue to be fashion favorites both on and off the runways.
Cara and Poppy Delevingne: Model sisters Cara and Poppy Delevingne hail from one of the toniest aristocratic families in the UK. Aside from modeling, Poppy is one of the the industry’s most in-demand It girls (Alexa Chung and Lauren Santo Domingo are close friends) and Cara has delved into the world of acting.
Jordan and Zac Stenmark: Twin male models Jordan and Zac Stenmark might just be Australia’s greatest (and definitely hottest) export to date.
Kate and Lottie Moss: Kate the Great has had one of the most illustrious careers in the industry and it looks like little sister Lottie might be following in her very successful footsteps.
Dean and Dan Caten: Perhaps no one defines sibling power duo better than the Caten brothers. As the identical twins and designers behind DSquared2, they prove that double the fashion is double the fun.
Jaden and Willow Smith: Is there anything the Smith kids can’t do? Besides being actors/singers/artists/cool teens, Jaden recently fronted a Louis Vuitton campaign (and a womenswear one at that, because he doesn’t “see gender when it comes to clothing”) and Willow was recently named a Chanel ambassador. Slay on, Smiths.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner: Perhaps the most notorious of the Insta teens, there’s no denying the broad influence of Kendall and Kylie. Kendall is a successful runway and editorial model, while Kylie has launched her own cosmetics line. Together, they’ve had fashion collabs with brands like Top Shop and Pac Sun, and they recently released a new label called (appropriately), Kendall + Kylie.
Lucky Blue, Daisy Clementine, Starlie Cheyenne, and Pyper America Smith: The Smith family’s other-worldly good looks have garnered all four siblings major modeling contracts (although it’s probably safe to say that Lucky Blue Smith is the indisputable fashion hit of the family). In addition to modeling, the four siblings perform in a band called “The Atomics.”
Franca and Carla Sozzani: The Sozzani sisters are basically fashion legends. As a Vogue editor and a gallerist (she founded 10 Corso Como) respectively, these Italian siblings are the definition of power players.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: The Olsen twins went from child stars to bona fide fashion designers all before the age of 30; it’s crazy to think that the girls who played Michelle on “Full House” now create $39k backpacks, but that’s life.
Sama and Haya Abu Khadra: These jet-setting twins are Saudi-born Palestinians, but they now live in sunny Southern California. In addition to sharing a joint Instagram account, where they document their fashionable escapades, the identical twins also DJ together.
Dree Hemingway and Langley Fox: Sisters Dree Hemingway and Langley Fox are some of fashion’s most in-demand models, thanks to their effortless cool (this also may be because they are related to both Ernest and Mariel Hemingway).
Victoria and Vanessa Traina: The Traina sisters are more than just socialites (their mother is literary scion Danielle Steel) — they run e-commerce site The Line, as well. As far as their fashion creds, having Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra as close personal friends probably doesn’t hurt.
