Yolanda Hadid did her first runway show in nearly 35 years alongside her daughters Gigi and Bella during Paris Fashion Week! The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star likened the experience to “riding a bike” and joked about her model daughters acting like her manager ahead of the show.
Yolanda, 56, surprised the audience when she walked on the runway for Off-White Fall/Winter 2020 fashion show on February 27. The former RHOBH star stopped modeling right before having her three children.
The mom-of-three strutted in a white blazer with black graffiti detail and navy pants, she accessorized with geometric earrings, a clutch bag, a chain link necklace and black sunglasses.
Gigi, 24, wore a white oversized tulle dress with a blue one-shoulder sweatshirt.
Bella, 23, similarly wore a black tulle dress with a structural skirt and a track jacket.
Prior to Gigi, Bella, and Yolanda’s runway debut together, Off-White creative director Virgil Abloh talked about his decision to cast the three women. “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 told Vogue. “I sent out a text that was a little bit cryptic. I was like, ‘Hey I have this idea for three Hadids to be in the show.”
Bella added, “We all thought he was talking about Anwar, and then all of a sudden he was like, ‘No, your mom!’ That's why Virgil is a genius.”
“It was amazing to walk the runway with her. I think that the outfit he put her in was perfect,” the 23-year-old gushed. “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.”
Yolanda revealed it was her first runway show in nearly 35 years and joked, “It's full circle, right?” She added, “It's like riding a bicycle: You never forget how to walk.”
The mom-of-three also called her daughters “my little managers” during Paris Fashion Week. Bella chimed in and said, “I opened the rehearsal and I ran back around to go film her from a seat because I wanted to get all the content. I'm just so happy that I was able to watch her do that. She was great.”
