DUBAI: From French Algerian model Loli Bahia to US Dutch Palestinian sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, Arab models are turning heads on the runway this week.
The Hadid sisters on Monday walked the runway for US fashion label Marc Jacobs in New York.
The show, which took place in the lobby of the New York Public Library, presented the New York-born designer’s fall 2022 collection.
Oversized is the key word that represents the show. The models wore colorful large knitwear pieces tied around their heads and waists, voluminous gowns, puffy coats, huge jackets and high platform boots.
Gigi and Bella stepped out with bleached eyebrows, dark hair and blunt micro bangs.
On Instagram, Gigi shared a video of her turn around the catwalk as she showed off two oversized knit sweaters with a grey skirt and white platform heels.
Meanwhile, Bella wore a sheen-heavy black dress that was voluminous and multi-layered. Her look was accessorized with white gloves and chunky heels.
For her part, Bahia walked the runway for French fashion label Jacquemus that took place in Southern France’s Camargue Park during Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
The models, including Bahia, presented the brand’s fall 2022 collection on large mounds of salt.
