Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s friendship

Jenner and Hadid have had similar career paths. They both appeared on reality television shows with their families and came up in the modeling world at the same time. 

The two stars are also friends. They have shared photos of each other on social media and have walked in fashion shows together, including the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. 

Hadid and Jenner are also friends with each others’ families. Jenner has said (according to The Things) that she was actually friends with Gigi’s younger sister Bella first. 

“Gigi and I just started getting close when we started modeling, but Bella and I were actually really good friends since high school and hung out every day in high school before either of us started working,” said Jenner. “It’s just funny because a lot of people don’t know that Bella and I have been friends for like five or six years.”

The two models recently shared a moment at the 2021 Met Gala, where photographers captured the women clasping hands and smiling at one another.
