Earlier this week, the Hadid siblings took London Fashion Week to model Gigi’s new Tommy Hilfiger collection. Obviously, this included the star Gigi herself, her less hot sister Bella, and…her brother Anwar? Excuse me, but I don’t know this person? Is he a male version of Gigi that looks kind of like a young Leo DiCaprio? Because if so, my prayers have been answered, and I’m about to spend two to five hours on Google Image Search. Let’s break down what happened at this ground-breaking event.
Gigi opened the show looking fly per usual:
She was followed by Bella, who didn’t look as amazing as Gigi, but was still giving it her best effort which we’ve gotta respect:
And then came Anwar, who
was thrilled to be making his debut looks like he wants to die:
Ok, so not only are my hopes for a new celebrity crush instantly dashed, but now I’m genuinely concerned about what’s going on with Anwar in this photo. Granted, this is also actual footage of me walking into work on Monday after a drinking bender, but still. This is scary.
Naturally bewildered by all of this, I did a two-second Wikipedia search to carefully investigate some of the missing pieces in this story. First of all, Anwar is in fact related to Gigi and Bella and is their youngest sibling at 18 years old. He’s also a professional model, so it’s not like they pulled him out of his third period math class to walk the runway. So why does he look miserable AF modeling with his sisters?
Some possible explanations:
1. He’s on a juice cleanse
2. He’s on a cold-blooded mission to dethrone Gigi and Bella
3. Tommy Hilfiger told he him looked fat
The mystery remains, since even after the show was over, he looked like an actual ghost compared to his two sisters rocking out:
Blink twice if you need help, Anwar. You can still maybe be hot if you try.
Apparently low-rise jeans are making a comeback, which is the least surprising news ever if you really think about it. Every couple of years, the jean style you swore you’d never wear again sneaks back into your closet, kind of like when you hang out with your ex but you’re definitely not together again. We all promised to ditch low-rise jeans and their horrible short zippers when we discovered the slimming capabilities of super high rise denim, but obviously that trend wasn’t going to last forever. I’m not saying you should get rid of your high-waisted jeans, and I’m definitely not saying you should pull out your old boot cut True Religions with bedazzled butt pockets. I’m just trying to prepare you for a painless transition from one denim trend to the next. Here are a few pairs of low-rise jeans that won’t make you look like a Laguna Beach walk-on that never got a more detailed on-screen name credit than “Brody’s friend.”
1. The Legging Step Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans, AG Jeans
These AG jeans are basically as close to a denim legging as you can get without wearing literal Pajama Jeans. These may be low-rise, but they also have a step hem and a distressed wash, so they’re way more 2017 than 2007.
2. MOTO Winter Bleach Lucas Jeans, Topshop
These are kind of like mom jeans, but they’re low-rise, which helps prevent serious mom butt. They also have a slouchy fit but don’t have holes, so you can pull off a relaxed look without every old dude you see in a day asking how much you paid for jeans with holes in them.
3. Boyfriend Low Ripped Jeans, H&M
On the off chance that you do want every old dude you see in a day to ask how much you paid for jeans with holes in them, this is a pretty good pair. Plus, they’re just from H&M, so if you accidentally rip through the knee hole with your foot, it’s not the total end of the world.
4. Harper Low-Rise Super Skinny Jeans, Abercrombie & Fitch
Before you stop reading and close this article out because I just suggested you buy jeans from Abercrombie, hear me out. Do you still drink the cheap vodka you blacked out off of in college? Yes, of course you do. You just don’t take photos of the bottle anymore. This is kind of the same scenario. A&F finally stopped putting their signature pocket stitching on most of their jeans, so you can still wear their super comfortable, actually affordable denim without rocking an infamous Abercrombie butt.
5. Low-Rise Skinny Fit Jean, Tommy Hilfiger
As long as you don’t wear these with like, a pink polo with a popped collar and oversized fake pearls, you should be fine. Gigi Hadid is desperately trying to make Tommy Hilfiger a thing again, so you might as well join in on that movement.
