Gigi Hadid makes her own furniture to wind down during “healing” retreats at her family farm in Pennsylvania.

In a new interview with U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, the model was asked a series of questions from her famous friends, including singer Taylor Swift, tennis ace Serena Williams, and Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh.

However, it was a query posed by fellow model Kendall Jenner that prompted Gigi to share her love for relaxation at her mother Yolanda Hadid’s luxurious country farm.

“It’s allowed me to fill my days off with the little things that make me happy, like art, gardening, yoga, cooking, being outside, and spending time with my loved ones and animals without having to worry about things like what I’m wearing or how my hair looks, or being photographed or seen that day,” she candidly stated. “Being away from the city and the public eye makes me feel like a kid again, and that freedom has been really healing for me.”

And it was a question from actress Blake Lively, who quizzed the 24-year-old over her newfound love of making her own chairs, that shed light on Gigi’s unusual hobby.

“When I’m spending time on the farm, I find it fun to try something new and see if I can pull it off,” the star explained. “It’s liberating to just create without the end goal of it being necessary to finish. The chair idea came from that.”

And while Gigi “failed miserably” in her first attempt, she has since successfully made her own chair.

“I like the ‘Try and fail and try again’ method. It keeps it fun and interesting for me, and even through failures you can learn so much,” she added.

Yolanda Hadid made her runway return during the Off-White presentation on Thursday night.

The Netherlands-born reality TV star worked as a model for 15 years before moving to Los Angeles in the mid-1990s and starting a family with her then-husband Mohamed Hadid.

While Yolanda is now often spotted in attendance at the fashion shows her daughters Gigi and Bella Hadid appear in, she couldn’t refuse an invitation from Off-White creative director Virgil Abloh to take to the catwalk alongside her oldest children as part of his fall/winter 2020 show in Paris.

Abloh told Vogue reporters backstage that he was excited by the idea of having a family involved in the spectacle, which was titled Slightly Off.

“I think, ‘What better sort of muse than not just one woman, but a family unit, the three of them, a family of models?’ I wanted to have that be the anchor of the show,” he said.

Bella opened the show wearing a deconstructed black jacket, long pleated skirt, and chain link necklace, while Gigi closed the spectacle in an avant-garde number comprised of a blue raincoat merged with an enormous white dress.

Yolanda, 56, took to the catwalk right in the middle, wearing a pair of black pencil trousers, a white blazer with black graffiti print, and black sunglasses.

And Bella was thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside her mother.

“It was amazing to walk the runway with her. I think that the outfit he put her in was perfect. It was the most amazing feeling because she’s always been the one that kind of gave us tips, and I think today I was more nervous than her,” she added.

Elsewhere in the presentation, Abloh offered up slinky dresses with round cutouts, cow print fabric, utilitarian jumpsuits, and metallic gowns with off-the-shoulder necklines.

Lanvin has gone for full-on retro glamour for its fall/winter 2020 collection.

Creative director Bruno Sialelli, who was appointed to helm the French house in January 2019, presented his third line at La Galerie des Gobelins as part of Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, with the show attracting celebrities such as Isabelle Huppert, Yolanda Hadid, Tyga, Teyana Taylor, Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh, and British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.

Regarding his inspiration for the line, Sialelli looked through the archives of label founder Jeanne Lanvin and contemplated the peak of the couture brand during its 1920s heyday.

To begin, a model walked the runway in a burgundy leather wing coat with matching boots and teal leather gloves. A number of similar silhouettes followed, all accessorised with either gold bracelets, gloves, and calf-length boots.

Coats were a big focus, with Sialelli offering up leather, check, and belted wool versions with oversized shoulder detailing, with Bella Hadid stepping out in a luxurious white number with gold buttons and fluffy collar.

“LANVIN!!! My dream coat, music, show … thank you to my dears,” the model captioned a snap on Instagram following the spectacle.

Elsewhere, the designer included long printed dresses, sheer black outfits with lace trim, knitwear separates and chic suiting, with the choice of beige and mint green fabric for the two-pieces referencing the signature pastel hues of the house.

To conclude, Sialelli unveiled a range of flapper-esque dresses, with Adut Akech in a black and silver beaded ensemble and Gigi Hadid sporting a shorter style alongside a navy coat and red gloves.

“Kicked off Paris closing the beautiful @lanvinofficial show yesterday. Congrats & thank you @brunosialelli,” she posted.

Moschino channels Marie Antoinette for fall 20 collection

Jeremy Scott has channelled Marie Antoinette with his latest Moschino collection.

The creative director of the Italian label unveiled his fall/winter 2020 line as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday, with the likes of Chiara Ferragni, Yolanda Hadid, and Saweetie all perched on the front row.

Titled Let Them Eat Moschino, Scott once again stuck to his signature camp aesthetic and scattered the range with references to portraits of the last Queen of France before the French Revolution in 1789, as well as to the famous phrase she was believed to have once uttered.

Regarding the concept, the designer told Vogue backstage that he had been influenced by the political divisions around the world occurring at present, especially in relation to protests in Hong Kong, Brexit in the U.K., and backlash over some of U.S. President Donald Trump’s more controversial policies. Yet, rather than offering up a very serious spectacle, he opted instead to spark a sense of delight within the audience.

“All I can do is offer respite,” he shared. “Even if you continue to fight, you need that moment of joy. We all need something uplifting. My role on this earth has only ever been to spread joy and bring happiness.”

To open, model Deirdre Firinne took to the catwalk in a gold embroidered denim dress with extremely wide skirt along with matching lace-up boots and an enormous wig courtesy of hairstylist Paul Hanlon.

A parade of similarly dramatic outfits followed, though Scott interspersed them with ladylike metallic suits, whimsical printed dresses, and candy-striped ballgowns.

Highlights included a black outfit with Moschino logo as worn by Irina Shayk, with the look topped off with layers of ’80s-style chain necklaces, and Bella Hadid in a white dress with wide skirt which was matched with a cropped black leather jacket.

And the fashion star saved his most couture creations till last, with Joan Smalls concluding the presentation by wearing a dress that resembled a tiered cake, and Gigi Hadid stepping out in a coat made entirely of faux red and pink roses.

Miley Cyrus made a surprise appearance on the catwalk during Marc Jacobs’ fashion show on Wednesday night.

The designer unveiled his latest fall/winter 2020 collection at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour, and top models including Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Kaia Gerber.

But instead of joining the audience as she usually does, Cyrus chose to get in on the action partway through the presentation, where she modelled a black bralet, matching trousers, and carried a zebra print coat.

Taking to Instagram after the show, Cyrus posted a video showing her seriously strutting her stuff, and the clip quickly attracted over five million views and comments from her celebrity pals.

Hailey Bieber wrote, “YUP. STOMP QUEEN,” Kloss posted, “Best of both worlds,” and Georgia Fowler penned, “Incredible.” Naomi Campbell simply posted a string of fire emojis.

Cyrus, 27, is a longtime friend of Jacobs and previously collaborated with him in 2013 for a charity T-shirt line, which featured the slogan “Protect the Skin You’re In.”

She also appeared in the designer’s spring 2014 campaign, and they reunited to co-design a pink hoodie to raise funds for Planned Parenthood last year.

Jacobs has long been one of Cyrus’s go-to designers – she wore an outfit from his fall/winter 2013 collection to the Met Gala a few months after he showcased the line.

Marc Jacobs has celebrated the intersection of “chaos and form” with his fall/winter 2020 collection.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday night, with the spectacle drawing in the likes of Naomi Campbell, Sofia Coppola, Nicki Minaj, Yolanda Hadid, and Stephanie Seymour.

To kick off the presentation, Karole Armitage, known as the “punk ballerina”, took to the stage to perform a show-stopping abstract dance.

“Our fall/winter 2020 collection celebrates the intersection of chaos and form, the rituals of getting dressed and the power of storytelling through movement as a gesture into possibility,” a brand representation wrote on Instagram. “Marc Jacobs celebrates the power of storytelling through the movements of legendary and renowned choreographer and dancer, Karole Armitage. Karole’s talent and genius is in her ability to dismiss the discipline of her craft by challenging conventional gestures. Her abrupt, fierce and sometimes violent articulations brings the cultural influences of today into conversation with a past New York I will forever love, not for longing of time passed but for moments that are timeless in reference.”

A troupe of dancers continued to perform in the background as the show began, with a model opening in a lemon-yellow coat and matching leggings. A series of similar numbers in pale pink and white followed, with Kaia Gerber wearing a pale yellow faux fur coat and matching hat.

However, Jacobs then dropped in a variety of eclectic looks, such as a spotted coat, red dress with white Peter Pan collar, a light blue pea coat, a red tartan jumpsuit, and a grey tweed suit.

Other highlights included a black sequin evening gown as worn by Bella Hadid, a white suit and red beret as modelled by Gigi Hadid, singer Miley Cyrus in a black bralet and trouser combination, as well as Karlie Kloss in a white gown with a high-neck top and long silk skirt.

Bella Hadid: ‘I started modelling way too young’

Bella Hadid believes she started her modelling career “way too young” because she wasn’t prepared for the recognition she received.

The 23-year-old grew up a keen equestrian and had dreams of representing the U.S. at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil until she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease, along with her mother Yolanda and brother Anwar, in 2012. Accordingly, she decided to follow in the footsteps of her sister Gigi and dropped out of school to pursue a modelling career, landing her first professional job at the age of 16.

In a candid new interview with LOVE magazine, Bella admitted she didn’t have a great deal of confidence in her appearance at that age and would often hate seeing photos of herself and feel “mortified” when brands wanted to work with her.

“In my opinion, I started modelling way too young,” she shared. “I was still growing, and my confidence wasn’t fully matured. I didn’t love myself or didn’t necessarily think I was worthy of all of the recognition I was getting.”

However, Bella has since developed a strong work ethic and is always determined to give her all during a job.

“Being a model is about being a team, working together and being creative,” the brunette beauty continued. “If I don’t go into a shoot every day and leave being incredibly proud of the work we made, then it doesn’t seem like a successful shoot to me.”

Bella, who has posed for fashion campaigns for brands such as Moschino, Versace, and DKNY, also insisted that models are not the most important person on the set of a photoshoot, even though they are the subject.

“One thing is always the same: everyone is equally important on set. Everyone is there for the same reason, to work hard and make art,” she stated.

Bella Hadid wishes she had posed for the cover of Vogue Netherlands sooner because then her late grandmother would have been able to see it.

The American model posted images from the shoot on Instagram on Tuesday and revealed in the accompanying caption that she learned her beloved “Oma” had passed away as she was wrapping up the session over the summer.

“This cover is very bittersweet,” Bella wrote. “I’ve always wanted to do my Dutch vogue cover in Holland to represent my family, my mother, my cousins, my aunt, uncle and especially my Oma.

“On this day, I got a phone call from my mom right when we finished our last shot. She said Oma passed that afternoon. This was one of the worst phone calls and all I wished, had I done it sooner, she would have been able to see it to tell me what she thought (sic). I hope she is proud of me. I love you Oma and Mama. This was such a memorable day in so many ways.”

Bella also expressed gratitude to photographer Sean Thomas, editor-in-chief Rinke Tjepkema and “the team for being so great”.

Ans van den Herik, who is Yolanda Hadid’s mother, lost her battle with cancer at the age of 78 in August. Bella and her sister Gigi Hadid attended her funeral in Rotterdam last month.

The 23-year-old’s Vogue shoot took place in and around Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, with one shot showing her positioned beneath the iconic Dutch painter Rembrandt’s 1633 portrait of Remonstrant preacher Johannes Wtenbogaert.

The issue is a tribute to the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, with the artist having died on 4 October 1669.

Kris Jenner and Yolanda Hadid have recreated iconic scenes from ’80s soap Dynasty in a new photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians matriarch donned a convincing brunette permed wig and dressed up as Joan Collins’s character Alexis Carrington for the shoot, while Gigi and Bella Hadid’s mother portrayed Krystle Carrington, who was played by Linda Evans in the primetime U.S. show.

In one shot, the duo rocked matching gold Moschino gowns and Bulgari diamonds, while in another image, Kris and Yolanda wear Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses while recreating an iconic fight scene in a lily pond between Alexis and Krystle.

And Joan seemingly gave her approval to the shoot, as she took to Instagram to share a screenshot of the coverage in a newspaper.

“Imitation is the highest form of flattery… so they say!” the 86-year-old wrote, with Kris quickly commenting on the post: “You are the Queen!!! No one will EVER compare or come close!!! Love you, Joan.”

In the accompanying interview for Harper’s Bazaar, the 63-year-old revealed she had already been in touch with the legendary Hollywood actress to tell her about the Dynasty-inspired shoot.

“Of course, Joan Collins is really a total sweetheart. I just texted her. I was like, ‘I’m dressed as you for a photoshoot,'” Kris shared. “And she said, ‘Send me a pic ASAP!’ So I did. She got a kick out of the fact that I was going to be her.”

The women have been longtime friends, and in a sweet turn of events, their supermodel daughters are also friends.

“Kendall is really good friends with Gigi and Bella, so I’ve had Kris at my house, and she’s been on vacation to Holland with us,” Yolanda explained. “There’s a bond there between the families.”

Anwar Hadid: ‘My dad is my style inspiration’

Anwar Hadid has named his father as his main source of style inspiration.

The 20-year-old counts models Gigi and Bella Hadid as his big sisters, and their mother is former model and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda Hadid.

But Anwar confessed in an interview with Into The Gloss that it is his real estate developer father, Mohamed Hadid, who is his real fashion icon.

“He’s my style inspiration – not because our styles are similar, but because he’s always fresh. He’s put together every morning, almost like he wakes up like that – shaved face, smells good, looks clean. It seems effortless, but it can’t be, because for me it’s impossible,” he shared.

The model also explained that he gets agitated during photoshoots as his skin always breaks out after having heavy make-up on his face.

“I’ll ask literally anyone for skin tips. My biggest issue is that I get my make-up done for shoots, and I always break out from that. After a shoot, I’m running home to wash my face. I’d like to figure out what it is, but I guess some things just make my skin irritated,” Anwar stated.

The youngest Hadid sibling, who recently began dating British singer Dua Lipa, has a low maintenance skincare regime. Yet, even he has had one very memorable beauty fail.

“I’m not particular about my hair, but the one thing I wouldn’t do again was shave it all off. I did it with a disposable BIC razor, and I was really bald. It looked so ugly, but at least now I know,” he laughed.
