From the Olsens to the Hadids, the fashion community can’t resist the allure of celebrity sisters. We watched as Mary-Kate and Ashley evolved from child actresses to business moguls, and as the Hadids went on to front one campaign after another—both alone and together. Hot on their heels are more modelling sister acts, including Adwoa and Kesewa Aboah, as well as those in the worlds of music, film and television. Here are the sister acts you should be keeping on your radar
Adwoa and Kesewa Aboah
There’s no escaping model of the moment Adwoa Aboah: She’s looking back at you from magazine covers, runways and campaigns; appearing in films such as Ghost in the Shell; empowering women with Gurls Talk, the online community she founded so girls can have a safe space to talk about issues like mental health; the list goes on. And while most fashion folk currently associate her with BFF Cara Delevingne, that’s about to change as her younger sister, Kesewa, follows in her footsteps. The half-Ghanaian, half-English pair walked Coach’s fall/winter 2017 show, and starred in fall/winter 2017 campaigns for Miu Miu and G-Star Raw. With Kesewa going on to front Miu Miu’s cruise 2018 campaign, rest assured we will be seeing a lot more of the Aboahs.
Este, Danielle and Alana Haim
When the Grammy-nominated Haim sisters released their debut album, Days are Gone, in 2013, they instantly caught the eye of the fashion cognoscenti with their enviably tousled tresses and ’70s California-inspired look. In 2017, alongside the release of their sophomore album, Something to Tell You, the sisters also hit the Paris Fashion Week circuit in style. Not only did they sit front row at the likes of Chanel and Valentino, they also went on to headline the Guggenheim International Gala pre-party, held in partnership with Dior—in custom Dior gowns, no less. Like any self-respecting girl group, the sisters have a knack for picking coordinating threads without being too matchy, thanks to a fondness for different silhouettes. Eldest sister Este gravitates towards mini dresses, middle sister Danielle to suits and trousers, and youngest sis Alana to t-shirts and denim. The trio will be going on their Sister Sister Sister Tour across Europe and North America later this year.
Taylor, Logan and Mackinley Hill
Thanks to Bella and Gigi, the fashion world’s obsession with modelling sister acts is in overdrive. With a combined social media following in the millions, a family YouTube channel featuring the three sisters and their brother, Chase, and Taylor leading the way with contracts and campaigns, the Hills are on track to claiming the title of being the next Hadids. While eldest sister Logan has chosen to go behind the camera as a photographer, Taylor has the distinction of being the youngest Victoria’s Secret Angel as well as being the face of Lancôme; and Mackinley is a year younger and is signed to the same agency, IMG. Taylor and Mackinley have already been shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld for his eponymous label’s fall/winter 2017 campaign—and where Karl goes, the rest of the fashion world follows.
Domino, Jemima and Lola Kirke
When someone gets married in a courthouse, it's really an open invitation to everyone but the beautiful bride to explore all that fashion has to offer. Here, I try a look simply called "Pants," as Cassius goes for "That Dude from #incubus" and Jemima experiments with "Off to Therapy!" Congratulations @dominokirke. We love you.
Jemima might be the best known of the Kirke sisters, thanks to her role in HBO’s Girls, but her sisters are no less artistically inclined. The family reads like characters out of a Wes Anderson movie: Dad, Simon is a drummer; mum, Lorraine is an interior designer; elder sister Domino is a singer (she released her album, Beyond Waves, in August) and doula, who also happens to be married to Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley; and youngest sister Lola is an actress who has starred in Noah Baumbach’s Mistress America and Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle, as well as appeared in campaigns for Calvin Klein. The sisters, who grew up in Brooklyn, New York, have mastered the art of luxe bohemia, opting for lace, flares and kimonos in their everyday and red carpet wardrobes.
