Sister duos for the Balmain Fall 2015 campaign

It’s campaign season and Balmain’s Fall 2015 striking ads, lensed by the noted Mario Sorrenti, feature a trio of¬†supermodels with their genetically blessed sisters.

Kendall Jenner and¬†her famous sister Kylie follow in the footsteps of their half-sister Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West, who featured in last season’s Spring Summer campaign.

Models Gigi and Bella Hadid add this campaign to their already impressive portfolio. Gigi has already faced the campaigns of Tom Ford, MaxMara, Guess Рand Bella has graced the cover of Jalouse, V (with Gigi), Grey and Unconditional magazine.

Erika Smalls, sister of Puerto Rican supermodel Joan Smalls, is thrown into the public limelight from a relative unknown to a high fashion model.

Creative director Olivier Rousteing said in a statement that he wanted to¬†celebrate the “unique and¬†unconditional love of siblings”.

Model brothers Armando and Fernando Cabral also feature in the campaign.

A 14-year-old is the new muse for Dior

She has been dubbed the “young Claudia Schiffer”.

14-year-old Sofia Mechetner has been plucked from obscurity and catapulted into the world of high fashion, opening the recent Dior Haute Couture show in Paris.

It wasn’t long ago that Sophia,¬†from Israel,¬†shared a bedroom with two younger siblings, slept on a broken bed and helped¬†with the chores while her single mum worked three jobs.

After being asked multiple times if she considered being a model, the 5-foot-11 blonde beauty joined Tel Aviv modelling agency Roberto. However, when she travelled to Paris with a chaperone to visit the French agency Viva, she was told she was too young to model.

While in Paris, Sophia and her chaperone visited a Dior store and spotted Dior’s creative director, Raf Simons. After her chaperone asked¬†for a photograph, the designer was introduced to Sophia and instantly wanted her for his show.

According to the Washington Post, she has since signed a contract with the French house worth £170,000 ($AU359,513) and opened the Dior Haute Couture show on July 6.

Check out photos of the blue-eyed wonder who has many years of modelling ahead of her.
