Kendall Jenner opened up about what “people don’t know” about her friendship with Bella Hadid
Since Kendall Jenner and her model crew have emerged onto the supermodel scene, it seems the high-fashion beauties have created a besties crew that rivals the best of #squadgoals. And since Kendall and pal Gigi Hadid are often snapped in so many gorgeous photos together—be it paparazzi snapshots or high-end photoshoots—one might think it’s because they go way back. But as it turns out, Kendall and Bella Hadid have been friends for years. Like, the kind of friends who hung out at each other’s houses after school — way before they ever started modeling.
“Gigi and I just started getting close when we started modeling,” Kendall told world-renown photographer Mario Testino on his podcast this week.
“But Bella and I were actually really good friends since high school, and hung out every day in high school before either of us started working. It’s just funny because a lot of people don’t know that Bella and I have been friends for like five or six years.”
Considering both families hail from the Los Angeles area and that Bella, 20, Kendall, 21, and Gigi, 22, are all *so* close in age, it’s no surprise that they ran in the same circles as teenagers.
As you probably already know, nowadays Ms. Jenner and the Hadid sisters still run in the same professional circles. They’ve all lent their gorgeous faces from everything to the likes of the Victoria’s Secret runway to the hallowed pages of Vogue. In her podcast session with Testino, Kendall talked about how much she enjoys shooting with Bella and the rest of her model #BFFs. In fact, it seems there’s really only one thing that gets on KJ’s nerves when it comes to photoshoots.
“I don’t get to be hot very often. I love going like, sexual, because I don’t get to do it,” she told Testino. “I love being transformed. Everyone always wants to make me myself. Because not only am I a model but I guess have a name too, so they get confused, they don’t know how to use me.”
Well Kendall, we’re here to support you in whatever you want to do next, and we’re sure Bella and Gigi are right there with us!
