Fashion’s seen its share of well-dressed sisters lately, but no pair has consumed the style world quite as much as Gigi and Bella Hadid. The twosome has become omnipresent on the industry’s most major runways and at the glitziest parties, while also scoring face time during some of the entertainment world’s biggest nights (thanks to two famous pop-star boyfriends, natch). And while both ladies have adopted the most major trends seen on today’s it-girls—comfy, athleisure pieces and ’90s-inspired chokers among them—neither girl is a carbon copy of the other. So, which Hadid is most aligned with your sense of style?
Notch a check in the Bella column. The younger sister has made it clear that dark noir is her color of choice, routinely eschewing brights or pale hues in favor of the shade. Gigi is more apt to dabble all over the spectrum, spending time in light neutrals and sparkly metallics.
It’s rare to see Bella in a silhouette other than painted-on skinnies, whereas Gigi’s frequently spotted in ripped boyfriend jeans and slouchy trousers.
If you answered the former, you’re more like Gigi. A quick downward glance would often be the surest way to tell who’s who, with the blond beauty usually finishing outfits with sexy heels. The raven-haired model gives major play to the ankle boots in her closet instead.
Both sisters are aces at putting together sexy outfits, but there’s a difference: Gigi typically pulls out more classic bombshell fare, while Bella has shown a preference for pairing steamy items with bold silhouettes that don’t scream “date night” (sure, that sheer lace top flashes some skin, but the wide-leg trousers are more likely to get a nod from a fashion-loving friend than a dude).
There’s a feeling of rock-star-girlfriend that loops through each Hadid’s closet, but Gigi tends to favor glamazon pieces that wouldn’t look out of place at a posh to-do. Conversely, Bella’s look is regularly edgier and feels ready to lounge backstage. Consider Gigi a modern Bianca Jagger to Bella’s iPhone-era Anita Pallenberg.

You probably recognize Jacquelyn Jablonski from the Victoria’s Secret runway or the pages of Glamour magazine, but the globe-trotting model hasn’t forgotten her roots. The New Jersey native has a younger brother on the autism spectrum and will host her third fund-raising benefit for the developmental disorder this evening in New York City (info and tickets are here). Aside from the fact that it’s a matter close to her heart, she says the numbers are impossible to ignore: Autism affects 1 in 68 children, and there are 500,000 teens on the spectrum who will age into adulthood over the next decade. Jablonski’s brother Tommy is one of them; he’s nearly 21. We sat down with the model to talk family, autism awareness, and the mission behind her new foundation, Autism Tomorrow.
GLAMOUR: You’ve been campaigning for autism awareness for several years now, but this marks your first event for your new foundation, Autism Tomorrow. What inspired you to create this foundation and what is the mission behind it?
JACQUELYN JABLONSKI: My brother is reaching the age of 21, and many schools end at that age. So it’s kind of like, what’s next? As I got more involved in the autism community and spoke to parents who had kids with autism, no one really had a clear idea of what was next for their child. The goal of the foundation is to create more opportunities for these adults when they’re schooling ends, because autism does not end when they reach adulthood.
GLAMOUR: Where does your brother Tommy fall on the spectrum?
JJ: Tommy is on the severe end of the spectrum. He may not ever be able to live on his own. But we hope that he will be able to at least live a little bit more independently and learn new skills and be able to work.
GLAMOUR: What is his current living and schooling situation?
JJ: Tommy lives with my parents and goes to school Monday through Friday. The school has an activity schedule, and it’s all about “earning.” So if you behave and you do this, you earn that. For example, he loves Chili’s restaurant, so he knows that if he behaves, he will earn that. He actually started to work on a farm one day a week. I ask, “What do you do at the farm?” And he says, “I fill the flasks.” I just want him to continue to grow and learn and carry on with this structure. Just like us, he needs that routine. For example, when he’s on vacation for two weeks, he’s having fun and everything, but he gets more antsy. At the moment, when school ends we don’t know what’s next. I don’t want him to just sit around at home all day, or for any of these young adults to not continue to grow. It’s a quality of life.
GLAMOUR: What kinds of things would these transition programs offer?
JJ: The transition programs will provide adults with the skills they need to reach their goals and dreams. Depending on the level of severity, that could be a part-time job for some, or simply to improve communication skills for others. For example, daily tasks like cleaning, or things to help them live more independently. These young adults are very smart. If you teach them something, they get obsessed. When Tommy learned about cleaning, he started Windexing the whole house to the point where my mom was like, “OK, you need to stop because now the table is stained.” If they’re taught, they can do.

We’re betting that Blake Lively’s maternity style with baby No. 2 will be just as good (and by good we mean great) as the first time around. Don’t forget that this was a hot mama who played with trends, showed some leg, and rocked what might be the all-time sexiest maternity gown (it was pale yellow Gucci, and man, it was fantastic). Now she’s expecting a second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, and we’re just starting to get a glimpse at that well-dressed bump. She touched down in France ahead of the Cannes Film Festival and went with summery white, knotting an ivory Burberry trench coat over the tiniest beginnings of a round stomach.
Belted styles are ideal for pregnant women, as they allow for easy customization as bumps swell and change. The actress has been characteristically tight-lipped about her news (as she was with her daughter, waiting as long as possible to confirm her birthday and name), and her still-trim figure makes us think it’s early on in her pregnancy. The bombshell didn’t really show any extra curves in the pink Burberry dress she showed off on the Met Gala red carpet—her first since the happy news broke—and the only bump spottings have been limited to a covered-up shot from the set of her new movie (where, to be fair, she was wearing only a surf-ready rash guard).
Bottom line: Now we’re even more excited to see what sort of glam looks Blake pulls out for Cannes. She gave her Instagram followers a peek at what she packed, and it looks like we can expect lots of sparkle.
What else will we be seeing over the next few months? Check out the sexy looks Blake wore throughout her first pregnancy.
