Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid are royalty of the modelling world, but their older sister Alana Hadid rocked the catwalk in style at Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Alana – who is a 40-year-old fashion designer – took to the runway for the first ever time wearing Scandinavian brand Saks Potts’ spring/summer collection.

There wasn’t any Barbie-pink here, like all of us normals are embracing this summer (hi Barbie!), but a sheer, elegant beigey-gold floor-length dress.

The star looked incredible in the mesh number, as the leaves elegantly draped down her figure and brushed the floor.

Looking o-natural, Alana embraced a head of relaxed curls and no makeup for the look, which almost wouldn’t look out of place in JRR Tolkien’s fictional Rivendell alongside Orlando Bloom.

Alana is the half-sister of Bella and Gigi, as her father is Mohammed Hadid like the two models, but her mother is the real estate developer’s ex-wife, Mary Butler.

While she sometimes makes modelling cameos, Alana is primarily about the design element, and co-founded LA unisex brand Detresse in 2017.

Marking the special catwalk moment, Alana took to Instafgram with a little snippet video from the rainy event, and said: ‘Core memory made in Denmark with @sakspotts 🙏🏼 my first runway!

‘Thank you @barbarapotts @cathrinesaks 🤍🌧️✨what a way to arrive to Copenhagen, opening for the most amazing brand… in the rain.’

She’s collaborated with Lou & Grey in the past, and has previously described herself – with her fondness for slogan T-shirts – as the sisters’ most ‘androgynous’ dresser.

Younger brother, 24-year-old Anwar Hadid – who is full sibling to Bella and Gigi – famously dated Dua Lipa from 2019 to 2021.

But hold on, hold on: there’s more.

Enter Marielle Hadid, who is Alana’s full sister from their father’s first marriage, which ended in 1992.

Marielle, 44, is a mother of two kids – Colton and Coco – and launched an eyewear brand called Hadid Eyewear.

The supportive older sister remarked on Alana’s celebratory post with a pretty hilarious comment, as she said: ‘Turn 40 become runway model.’

We love Alana’s style. Go gal.
