Before she joined IMG Models, the 22-year-old, who was named the first US National Youth Poet Laureate in 2017, had made her mark in the fashion industry for the outfit she wore in the swearing-in ceremony of President Biden.
The red satin Prada headband became sold out after she appeared with it during her performance, while the yellow Prada coat she donned caused an astounding 1,328% increase for searches for “yellow coats,” according to fashion search engine Lyst as cited by The Guardian yesterday, Jan. 27.
Aside from the Hadid sisters, the said modeling agency also handles Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Graham. /ra
