Anwar Hadid was born in Los Angeles, CA on June 22, 1999 to real estate developer Mohamed Hadid and model Yolanda Hadid. He has two older sisters, Gigi and Bella, who are both fashion models. Even as a child, Anwar was artistically gifted and interested in photography. Growing up in the spotlight thanks to his parents‘ careers and reality TV fame, he was a bit shy but always determined to pave his own path.
As the youngest son of Mohamed Hadid and Yolanda Hadid, Anwar grew up in an entrepreneurial and creative family environment. His father was a Palestinian-American real estate developer, and his mother a Dutch model turned reality star. Anwar made occasional appearances on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which documented his family’s lavish lifestyle.
Despite the privilege, Anwar had a close relationship with his siblings Gigi and Bella. The three siblings were always passionate about art, photography, and fashion. While his sisters pursued modeling, Anwar took his time to focus on school. But eventually his creative talents and camera-ready looks could not be ignored.
After years watching his sisters make their modeling debuts, Anwar decided to give it a try as well. In 2015, he signed with IMG Models – Gigi and Bella’s agency. His first runway was the Zadig & Voltaire Fall/Winter 2016 show in New York.
The following year, Anwar walked in his first big fashion week, modeling for Versace at Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017. His fame skyrocketed after appearing alongside Gigi and Bella at the Tommy Hilfiger collaborative show with Zendaya in 2017.
Since then, he’s modeled for Fenty x Puma, Ralph Lauren, and Valentino, and been the face of Hugo Boss, Roberto Cavalli, and Zadig & Voltaire campaigns. Some career highlights include:
- Youngest male model to cover Vogue (2017)
- First male ambassador for Moschino (2018)
- British GQ cover with Gigi and Bella (2018)
- New York Fashion Week debut (2018)
Beyond the runway, Anwar is passionate about photography and shares gorgeous, artistic photos through his social media. He hopes to one day branch into directing.
