Gigi and Bella's Mum Is the Hadid We're Obsessed With Looking At

Long before Gigi and Bella were gracing the runways, Yolanda Hadid was exercising her fashion chops in the '80s and '90s, working it from one high-energy photo shoot to the next. It's safe to say that the impossibly cool Hadid sisters got it from their mama.

One thing we love about Yolanda, 54, is her dedication to looking impeccably polished, even on her daily coffee run. She's often spotted with the latest It bag, and you can be sure you'll have shade envy when scrolling through these photos.

There's no denying she's on the pulse of the latest trends, but she remains loyal to those pieces that work best for her figure and taste. One item it seems Yolanda can't live without is a pair of skinny leather trousers, a staple piece she owns in several different cuts and colours.

From jeans to evening wear, Yolanda knows how to work it for any occasion. Here are some of our favourite looks from the mother of two of the world's biggest supermodels du jour.

Like mother like daughter. Yolanda and Gigi Hadid attend The Fashion Awards on December 5, 2016, in London. We love Yolanda's floor-length gown, and royal blue looks absolutely radiant on her.

She doesn't always play it safe, you know: Yolanda shows us she knows how to be rad with her graffitied yellow puffer jacket. A huge fashion risk, which we're giving her a 10/10 for taking. Bravo.

This tonal outfit Yolanda wore in NYC earlier this year is très chic and wouldn't look out of place in Paris.

Yolanda loves a leather trouser, and so do we. These red leather trousers look smart and grown-up with her tailored blazer and burgundy boots

It's rare we see Yolanda in super-frothy shades, but she looks rather good in bubblegum pink, don't you think? In true Yolanda style, she added a rock 'n' roll edge with leather trousers and black ankle boots.

Yolanda oversized leather blazer looks like it's been taken straight from the streets of Copenhagen Fashion Week. Especially when paired with leggings. Kudos, Yolanda.

This model mum loves to give a new spin on classic ideas. Take this patent version of a trench coat, for example.

Gigi and Bella can vouch for the puffa + jeans + sneakers combo, and Yolanda makes it her own with a statement jacket.

Yolanda clearly has a lot of love for patent leathers—topping and tailing her all-black look with it here.

Her sleek silver skirt is perfectly accompanied by a white long-sleeve top and classic court shoes—party-ready but still demure.
