The numbers are in on Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty and Kylie Jenner better hold on to her wig. Thanks to its social media friendly launch in September, the new brand is already a huge winner at the bank.. Within 24 hours of its debut, major brands like Kylie Cosmetics, Urban Decay and NYX were freaking out about Rihanna’s impact. Now the world knows why.

Bella Hadid has already landed three magazine covers for the month of September. But her latest for Vogue España looks awfully familiar. Bella, who usually does a great job differentiating herself from older sister Gigi Hadid, looks an awful lot like she’s copying one of Gigi’s recent covers for the Spanish publication. Wearing a feathery green fascinator, Bella looks a lot like Gigi did on her out-of-this-world, space-themed Harper’s Bazaar cover.
The stylistic similarity comes just a day after Bella announced another similarity with Gigi. She’ll be following in her big sister’s controversial footsteps by appearing on the cover of Vogue Arabia. Gigi caught some heat for wearing a hijab on the cover of the magazine’s debut issue. Folks claimed seeing Gigi use the traditional headwear as a fashion statement was offensive to their religious beliefs and tone-deaf to the oppression hijab-wearing Muslim women face every day.
Bella is also covering Harper’s Bazaar China for its September issue. Hopefully, no one at Harper’s gets upset that she teamed up with Vogue España to rip some inspiration from the recent Gigi cover in America. Meanwhile, Vogue apparently lost all contact info for models who aren’t named Hadid as Gigi is also covering Vogue Korea for September.
Check out all of Bella’s and Gigi’s latest covers below.

Gigi is half-Palestinian and the publication’s Creative Director felt that it would be appropriate for the model to wear a Hijab, but some are calling it appropriation and insulting. Most of the backlash comes from people disliking the fact that Gigi doesn’t practice the muslim religion–although she’s never publicly discussed her religion–and feeling that she only claims her ethnicity when it’s advantageous.
