Last February during Fashion Week, model Gigi Hadid hit the scene in a big way. Not only was the 19-year-old chosen to cover the spring 2014 issue of CR Fashion Book, but she also walked the runway for the likes of Jeremy Scott and Desigual and in the spring, she scored one of the prestigious rookie spots in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Since then, Hadid — who first rose to fame after appearing on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," on which her mother is a cast member — has shot up the modeling ranks. Aside from the slew of magazine covers and editorials she's earned, she was shot for the 2014 Pirelli Calendar and has two Tom Ford campaigns on her resumé.

But, Hadid isn't the only genetically blessed child in her family — her mom, Yolanda Foster, was a model, after all — and her younger sister, Bella, just signed a major contract. The 17-year-old, who just made the move from California to New York, shared the news on her Instagram on Thursday that she's the newest member of the IMG board, which is the same agency that her sister is signed with. Bella Hadid already has an impressive following on social media and is the raven-haired, scenester answer to her all-American older sis. We must say that the timing seems pretty convenient — will we be seeing two Hadids on the runways this Fashion Week? Watch this space.
