The 5 Best Sets of Siblings in Fashion

Good Morning Brainiacs,

If you're an avid Taylor's Brain reader, you're well aware by now how fascinated I am with models.  Yes, it's a vapid career: their entire job title is to look good, preferably in close proximity to a luxury product, but it's the variety of their looks, the range of their beauty and power, that has me just completely obsessed.  

So what's better than a model, you might be wondering?  In my opinion, it's another model--specifically, another model related to the first.  Because what is better than two well-dressed, well-coiffed, otherworldly beautiful siblings?  Each with their own unique version of their parents' genes flaunted on their striking faces?  Of course, this isn't a perfect world--not all siblings on this list are models.  However, all are icons in fashion and therefore just as chic.  Without further ado, the chicest and most stunning siblings in fashion to date:

1. Mary-Kate, Ashley, & Elizabeth Olsen


MK and Ashley are a given on any list of fashion's most iconic duo, but let's not forget their little sister Elizabeth.  The Olsens have a unique beauty about them that is absolutely made for fashion: the demure pout of the lips, the piercing eyes, the sharp cheekbones, and the two fashion labels that slay at Fashion Week every season.  However, what Elizabeth brings is a softer, sweeter elegance that helps balance these sisters out perfectly.  While she is more known for her acting that her fashion triumphs, I've never seen her not looking fabulous.  How could she, with top minimalistic designers for big sisters?

2. Kaia and Presley Gerber


These models look familiar, and not just in a way that's scarily similar to each other?  Maybe it's because they come from fashion royalty to begin with--to be more specific, Cindy Crawford.  While still barely teenagers, Kaia and Presley have appeared in multiple fashion spreads together and walked for major designers' shows (most recently, Presley in MNYFW Dolce & Gabbana).  They have big shoes to fill, but so far they're taking the fashion world by a storm.

3. Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid


Much like the Olsens, you can't really make it through a list of siblings in fashion without mentioning the Hadids.  And also like the Olsens, let's not forget little brother Anwar.  Anwar has traditionally gotten lost in the shadows of his big sisters Gigi and Bella (who, let's face it, have incredibly leggy shadows), but he's since made a name for himself in fashion, appearing often in Teen Vogue and garnering a significant Instagram following.  This is a family to watch grow together.

4. Ruth and May Bell


TWINS!  Models Ruth and May Bell were at first nearly impossible to tell apart, so Ruth took it upon herself to make it easier for us by buzzing off her golden locks.  However, this left the duo with a beautiful dynamic: May, the soft, feminine, doe-eyed blonde and Ruth, the edgy, androgynous babe.  Either way, I'm in love.

5. Dakota and Elle Fanning


Dakota and Elle are not models but they are DEFINITELY favorites of the fashion world.  The two sisters, two of the best actresses of my generation (I've been jealous of their talents since we were all elementary school age), are seen together often and always looking stunning.  They grace the presence of most covetable fashion shows and have appeared in multiple magazine editorials together.  

So these are my top picks for chicest siblings in fashion.  Maybe you agree, maybe you don't.  Either way, I want to hear your opinion! Did I miss anyone you feel deserved to make it on the list? Or maybe I put someone on there that you loathe? Tell me about it!  Don't be shy.

XOXO,

Taylor
