It may be difficult to think of now, due to their overwhelming overnight success, but remember way back when Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were mere supporting characters on their families' reality shows? Everyone's gotta start somewhere, whether it's on Keeping Up With the Kardashians or on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And really, the girls shouldn't be ashamed of their humble beginnings because look where it has brought them... to Paris Fashion Week. Speaking of, Jenner and Hadid were photographed hanging out together in Paris. But, does the relationship go past just the professional aspect? Are Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid friends?
Judging by their social media accounts, it sure seems like they are. I suppose their similar upbringings in the spotlight and having famous family members could bring two young aspiring models together and really bond them. I'm sure it's a cutthroat type of business, but both Jenner and Hadid seem refreshingly down-to-earth and a friendship between the two really does make sense. Besides, who wouldn't want a relatable buddy to travel with when they're in the midst of a whirlwind career that takes them far away from home?
This doesn't appear to be a short term friendship, either. According to E! Online, Hadid said, "Kendall and I have a really good friendship in the sense that we have different career paths but we're both kind of on equal points in our careers where we really understand each other." A very mature and level headed statement from a 19-year-old, for sure.
So yes, this relationship totally works in real life as well as on paper. And it seems like these days the pair do almost everything together. Check out their escapades below for yourself.
You know it's real when you go to Disney together
And when you spend Valentine's Day with each other
Or when you go on a trip to Abu Dhabi
It's especially real when you casually hang out at the Michael Kors Fashion Show
And buddy up with Cara Delevingne
Or when you accidentally match with your best friend and your boyfriend
But it's even realer when you take adorbs candids like these
And bring polaroids (along with T.Swift) back into popularity
Yep, these two definitely seem to be friends off the runway.
