Her sister is one of the biggest supermodels in the world right now, and she has an army of A-list friends – but Bella Hadid is about to break out and become a huge star in her own right.Bella, 19, signed to IMG Models in 2014 and just two years later is one of the most talked about names in the industry. Rather than drown her out, sister Gigi's star power only increases the sense of excitement and exclusivity that surrounds Bella.

Bella Hadid has walked for fashion houses including Chanel

In a show of just what's to come for her, Bella was named Model of the Year at the First Annual Fashion Lost Angeles Awards in March, beating off competition from huge names including 20-year-old Gigi.These days Gigi is as famous for her relationship with former One Direction star Zayn Malik as she is the runways she walks, but Bella is hot on her heels in terms of a celebrity romance.

She's not afraid to make a statement on social media

She's been dating R&B singer The Weeknd since April 2015, and he was there to support her in LA last month as she picked up her award. Discussing the support she gets from her man, Bella told ET: "It's so awesome. I love him, so it's really nice that we can be here together and he's supporting me. It feels great. "And it appears Bella is starting an army of the supermodels' younger siblings. She, Kylie Jenner and Lottie Moss posed for a joint shoot in Vogue magazine in December, in what was undoubtedly a clear message to Gigi, Kendall and Kate that they have arrived.
