Do you really need a best friend? Of course! With most people having that extra special someone among a group of close friends, there always seems to be one that you like that little bit more. There to help you when you are down, laugh with you when you are happy, and tell you that you don’t look fat; best mates are the one true love you’ll have in life, always there for you when you need that extra little pick me up. That’s right, everyone needs a best friend, and what better than one who is just as beautiful, just as famous, and just as wealthy as you are.
Not your average kind of best pals, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been friends for a number of years, often snapped together frolicking with the likes of Taylor Swift and her squad. But how did they meet? Almost like fate itself, the pair was thrown together when Hadid’s step-father, David Foster, married Linda Thompson, who in turn was once married to one Bruce Jenner (before becoming Caitlyn). Obviously happy with the arrangement, Hadid later claimed,”you know when in high school or middle school you want your best friend to marry your sibling so you have the same last name, well that just happened with me and Kendall we just didn’t have to ask.” Now, best friends for life, here are 15 hot pictures of BFFs, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
15. When They Mean Business
Born in Los Angeles, Kendall Nicole Jenner was actually named after the murdered ex-wife of family friend O.J. Simpson, charming. Half-sister to all the Kardashians, as well as full blood sibling to luscious lips Kylie Jenner, Kendall is often considered to be the most beautiful of the bunch, and probably is. Raised in the upscale suburb of Calabasas, among her other famed relatives, Jenner started modelling at the tender age of 4. Bagging her first proper job as a teenager, Jenner campaigned for popular teen brand Forever 21.
Following a similar path, Gigi Hadid was also born within the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles, attending high school in the glorious suburb of Malibu. Moving to New York City to focus on her studies as well as modelling, Hadid eventually pursued a full-time modelling career, dropping her education for good. Smart…
14. When They Go To Soccer Games
Known to be soccer fans, or what the British call football, Jenner and Hadid have often been spotted together cheering on their local team. However, with their local team that of Paris Saint Germain, it seems the pair have a long way to go when supporting their favorite players. Nevertheless, snapped at a game during Paris Fashion Week, the best pals were seen donning PSG shirts, while mingling with the likes of Rihanna, and a number of other French superstars. Now, an ambassador for sports brand Reebok, Hadid is often pictured working out, or hitting the gym, with boxing her main form of exercise. Often seen flaunting her ripped abs, Hadid is a big fan of the sport, claiming that it lets her release her pent up frustration, because being a supermodel is obviously extremely stressful.
13. When They Mess Around
Beginning a career in modelling at only 2 years old, Hadid has always had one foot in the fashion industry. Discovered by Guess mogul Paul Marciano, Hadid first started modelling for Baby Guess, before stopping to concentrate on school. Seemingly struggling with the prospects of an elite modelling career, or a high standard of education, Hadid has often swayed back and forth between the two, at one point even studying criminal psychology in New York City.
However, choosing the life on the catwalk, it seems the life of a high fashion model won the battle, with Hadid now one of the most famous faces in the world. Having just finished a killer campaign with legendary fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger, Hadid’s career is only getting stronger, well on her way to becoming one of the most well known models in the entire world, even if she does divide opinions.
12. When They Pretend To Be Serious
Both extremely attractive, it is no surprise to see a long list of ex-boyfriends filtering pathetically behind them. That’s right, from rock stars, pop stars, boys to men, these two have had their fair share of famous males. Once known to have dated every girl’s dream, Harry Styles, Jenner can also count Justin Bieber, Ashton Irwin, Lewis Hamilton, Orlando Bloom, Drake, and even best mate Cara Delevingne among the ones that got away.
However, it seems Gigi missed the memo with regards to how many men she was allowed to go with it, counting only Joe Jonas and Cody Simpson as famous exes. Now, madly in love with another ex One Direction member, Zayn Malik, the two are often pictured sickeningly in love, stroking each other’s faces and mooning into one another’s eyes, even if they do break up every five minutes. Ahh young love.
11. When They Wear Matching Bomber Jackets
With 2015 somewhat of a turning stone for the famed model, Gigi Hadid was named the Daily Front Row’s Model of the Year, as well as becoming ambassador for the Maybelline brand. Oooh. Bagging herself the cover of Vogue, Hadid has also graced the front page of magazines such as, Teen Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Grazia, Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, and Cleo. Somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades, Hadid also hosted the iHeartRadio Music Awards, as well as the American Music Awards in 2016, along side funny man Jay Pharoah. However, seemingly taking a skit a little bit too far when impersonating first lady Melania Trump, Hadid was forced to apologize, tweeting, “I apologize to anyone that I offended and have only the best wishes for our country, I removed or changed anything in the script that I felt took the joke too far, and whether or not you choose to see it, what remained was done in good humor and with no bad intent.”
10. When They Kiss Each Other In Public
Best friends forever, the pair has often stuck by one another during turbulent times, with Jenner’s father transitioning a definite point in their friendship where Jenner relied on her BFF. Super tight, Hadid has also used her pal’s shoulder to cry on a number of times, especially with regards to on and off boyfriend Zayn Malik. From breaking up to making up, and failed marriage proposals, these two are the epitome of a present day Hollywood romance, posting nude selfies, as well as cute romantic Instagram pictures. However, always there lurking in the background, is Jenner herself, seemingly present throughout the short list of Hadid’s famous boyfriends. And, returning the favor, Hadid has always been there for Jenner, supporting the age old notion that it’s always going to be sisters before misters, whatever happens.
9. When They Vacation Together
Coming from a long line of famous relatives, the two also share well known sisters. With Jenner one part of the most famous family in Hollywood right now, the Kardashian sisters are known worldwide, with Kim Kardashian now one of the most recognizable faces across the globe. However, with Gigi Hadid also rocking a few celebrated siblings of her own, the Hadid seed is seemingly just as strong when it comes to producing talented offspring. That’s right, from brother Anwar, who is also a model, it is sister Bella that has really stolen the limelight, with the year younger sibling following in her elder sister’s footsteps. Coming into her own as a model in her own right, Bella Hadid has already been making headlines with regards to her appeal. Featured together in a photo shoot for V magazine, the pair was also spotted modelling together at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2015.
8. When They Modelled For Victoria’s Secret
Turning heads in the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show in New York City, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid wowed audiences all over the world. Back with a vengeance in 2016, the pair took it up a notch, earning their wings as they paraded up and down the catwalk in Paris. That’s right, joined by the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes, Lily Aldridge, and sister Bella Hadid, the pair was lauded by critics, earning themselves special appreciation. Plus, as well as featuring the world’s top models, the show also had a high caliber of musical performances, from The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, and even Mr. Bruno Mars himself. Most likely to be invited back next year, we can only imagine what the two best friends have in store for the universally acclaimed Victoria’s Secret annual fashion show.
7. When They Photograph In Black And White
Following in her famous mother’s footsteps, it seems Jenner has a taste for the business world, with the young supermodel already knee deep in a number of business ventures. That’s right, creating two signature nail lacquers for the Nicole By OPI Kardashian Kolors nail polish line in 2011, the youngster reportedly earned a whopping $100,000 in profit, something only regular teenagers could dream off. Now, working alongside famed brand Gillette, as well as Nordstrom, Jenner and her famous family seemingly have a keen eye for a slice of the pie. In fact, not only has she made a mint through wheeling and dealing, Jenner has also kick started a career as a photographer, with her first published work released in 2016. That’s right, photographing Kaia Gerber, the daughter of the iconic and immensely popular supermodel Cindy Crawford, Jenner’s pictures were released to rave reviews.
6. When They Get Dressed Together
Best friends forever, the girls often display an envious amount of friendship goals, from coordinating their outfits to matching hair color. Discussing what it means to have a best friend like Jenner, Hadid recently confessed, “I think someone that’s just always there for you. It’s really hard in our industry to make time and so you realize the people that are really making an effort, too, you know that everyone’s so busy all the time, so when they pick up your calls whenever you call or if they text back and say, ‘Hey! I’m on set, but I’ll call you in five minutes,’ and they do, that means they’re a good friend”. Returning the favor, Jenner kept it simple, stating, “she is sweet, I love her,” when referring to best pal in the whole wide world. Awww.
5. When They Hang Out With Other Famous People
Known for their famous friends, Jenner and Hadid have often been spotted as part of the legendary Taylor Swift “girl squad”, that has been making the waves since early 2014. Ringleader to a crew made up of actresses, supermodels, pop stars, and feminist icons, Swift’s girl squad has been subject to ridicule as well as praise. With Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively, the Haim sisters, a number of Victoria’s Secret models, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, and our very own Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, the squad is a force to be reckoned with. That’s right, coming to the aid of Swift during Kanye gate, in which the famed rapper and Swift were embroiled in a timeline of heated discussion, the squad are known to defend each other in a time of crisis, even if Kendall is somewhat related to West himself. However, with Swift’s habit of falling out with people, as well as being involved in a variety of twitter spats, it seems the squad is in danger of dissolving sooner then we might think.
4. When They Swapped Hair Color
As well as dabbling in the business side of life, Jenner has also been involved in acting as of late, appearing in an episode of Hawaii Five-O, as well as starring in the upcoming movie, Ocean’s Eight, starring the likes of Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson and Rihanna, to name but a few. Although preferring to stay in front of the screen, Jenner has often taken a step back, embarking on a journey of self-discovery within her writing. Yes, that’s right, co-authoring the novel, Rebels: City of Indra, with ghostwriter Maya Sloan, Jenner and her sister Kylie also released a sequel not long after, aptly named, Time of the Twins. Billed as a science fiction type plot line, the book was mostly received well, managing to pull some positive reviews worldwide. Who would have thought?!
3. When They Take Selfies
Obviously enjoying the spotlight, the best pals are often seen in front of the camera, if not their own, posting a number of selfies all over social media regularly. Extremely popular, Jenner was named one of People magazine’s 50 most beautiful people in the world, as well as one of the most Googled models. Matching her best friend, Hadid managed to bag the cover of the first issue of Vogue Arabia, as well as constantly being named one of the most beautiful women in the world. Both featuring in the 2016 FHM annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World, Jenner came in at No. 7, with Hadid at a respectable 14. In fact, following in the footsteps of legendary supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss, Jenner and Hadid have often been hailed as the next generation, with Vogue dedicating a whole article to the fact. Hmmmm.
2. When They Wear Matching Sunglasses
Not only are they disgustingly rich, ridiculously attractive, and kind of talented, the best friends are also extremely giving, with both supermodels involved with a number charities. That’s right, setting up an eBay account in which she sells old clothing to raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Kendall Jenner has been using the account for a number of years, with her whole family also getting in on the action. Plus, as well as auctioning off old clothes, Jenner also participated in the Kick’n It For Charity Celebrity Kickball Games, which raises money for selected charities. Just as charitable as her best pal, Hadid has also supported a number of causes, most specifically the American Foundation for AIDS Research, as well as the Elton John AIDS Foundation
1. When They Match Their Hair Styles
Gracing a number of magazine covers between them, the pair has booked a number of highly popular and credible campaigns. From Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, H&M, and Dolce & Gabbana, to name but a few, Jenner and Hadid are now among the most sought after models in the biz, along with other famed pals, Cara Delevingne and Hailey Baldwin. Discussing their friendship as a quartet, Jenner recently confessed, “This is going to sound really, really lame, but we all call ourselves the Super Natural Friend Group, because we all have such cool individual lives and we’ve been dreaming about them since we were so young.” However, seemingly not agreeing, Baldwin admitted to not quite being on the same level with regards to their career, stating, “We don’t hang out that often! We’re all friends. We all have the same job, but we aren’t together that often, especially as a trio.” Ouch. Burn.
