Bella and Gigi Hadid have dominated the runways in recent years, but in Copenhagen, a new Hadid has made her catwalk debut: She older half-sister alana, Proving she’s professional enough already, the 38-year-old model opened the much-anticipated Saks Potts show on the first day of Copenhagen Fashion Week, which took place by the sea in rainy and muggy weather on Monday in the Danish capital.
Wearing a macrame bra and beige cropped jacket, along with a sequined blue skirt over jeans and flip flops, Alana’s look reflects the eclectic approach to dressing seen in the Scandinavian fashion scene in recent seasons. In fact, one can easily imagine many of Saks Potts’ looks being worn by the model’s younger sisters (both fans of the brand), including a pair of striped polo shirts and jorts.
Alana, who co-founded the Los Angeles unisex label La Detres in 2017, wasn’t the only famous face on the runway, as model Erin Wasson closed the show in a black one-piece with heels. The 41-year-old model is a longtime friend and supporter of the brand, having walked for Sachs Potts on several occasions.
However, one can’t help but wonder whether Alana’s runway debut could lead to the Hadid sisters’ total runway dominance next season, after Bella revealed over the weekend that she’s going through long-term treatment. After “will come back when ready.” Lyme disease. Don’t miss the details.
