Alana Hadid, the 38-year-old older half-sister of Bella and Gigi Haddi, made her runway debut this week in Copenhagen.

Hailing from the blessed Hadid gene pool, Alana, who shares a father, Mohammed Hadid, with her well-known siblings, made waves on the runway at both the Munthe and Saks Potts shows in Denmark this week, as reported by Glamour Magazine.

At the Munthe show, the 38-year-old Alana showcased her versatility by donning two contrasting outfits. She gracefully wore a sheer mesh floral dress adorned with shimmering beads.

Followed by turning heads in a black leather mini dress with intricate flower-shaped cutouts that accentuated her distinctive style.

Alana had her hair styled in loose waves and wore natural makeup which complimented her piercing blue eyes.

But Alana's connection to fashion goes beyond her recent runway debut. Long before her half-siblings rose to international modeling fame, she was already heavily involved in the fashion world.

This is made clear as she’s a fashion designer and co-founder of Los Angeles unisex brand La Detresse.

While people ponder whether the 38-year-old might be about to knock her half-sisters off the top spot, Bella, who recently battled Lyme disease, has returned to work.

The 26-year-old star has been candid about her struggle, posting photos of her journey through treatment and recovery.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Bella said: “Living in this state, worsening with time and work while trying to make myself, my family and the people who support me, proud, had taken a toll on me in ways I can’t really explain.

"To be that sad and sick with the most blessings/privilege/opportunity/love around me was quite possibly the most confusing thing ever.

"I have so much gratitude for and perspective on life, this 100+ days of Lyme, chronic disease, co-infection treatment, and almost 15 years of invisible suffering, was all worth it if I’m able to, God willing, have a lifetime of spreading love from a full cup and being able to truly be myself, for the first time ever."

Lyme disease, a bacterial infection transmitted by ticks, affects thousands globally. For some, the symptoms of Lyme disease can persist for years, including fatigue, aches, and loss of energy.

As for Gigi, she's recently made light of a recent run-in with the law as she was arrested in the Cayman Islands for marijuana possession.

Touching down at Owen Roberts International Airport via a private plane on July 10, Gigi proceeded through customs with her luggage as any traveler would. However, the Customs and Border Control officers stumbled upon a small quantity of marijuana and smoking accessories in her bag, resulting in her arrest.

Although the marijuana was deemed for personal use, both Gigi and her friend Leah Nicole McCarthy faced charges of marijuana importation and possession of utensils for cannabis consumption. They were subsequently handed a $1,000 fine after further legal proceedings.

In a statement provided to E! News, a representative for the model clarified: "Gigi was traveling with marijuana purchased legally in NYC with a medical license. It has also been legal for medical use in Grand Cayman since 2017. Her record remains clear and she enjoyed the rest of her time on the island."

Despite this, Gigi continued with her vacation, and judging by social media, it looks like she had a great time.
