Anwar Hadid is the lesser-known sibling of two of the fashion world's biggest names — Gigi and Bella Hadid. It has been just a few years since Anwar Hadid made his modelling debut and Gigi and Bella’s little brother has since hit the runway for a number of designers, and the man has even been named the face of Hugo Boss Menswear’s Hugo line.
Recently however, the littlest Hadid has been plenty busy. He's now starred in a new campaign for Valentino and has released a new song and video on his Instagram inspired by Palestine. The song, titled ‘Progression 101’, features musician Robby Krieger who is best known for his work with The Door. The new song is part of Anwar’s first music album, ‘Bleach’, which was released in April 2019.
The video has received much acclaim from his social media followers and is filmed on the streets of Palestinan towns. The song lyrics explore some of the experiences faced by people who live on the West Bank.
“Just to be erased from it all, by a bullet or iron bars … disgusting.”
Hadid made a much publicised trip to Palestine earlier this year and shared pictures from his trip on social media.
"My brothers and I touched the mother land today ... much culture and beauty and people that need to be seen and heard," he wrote on his Instagram in April.
His sister Bella Hadid has also expressed her lover for Palestine during the course of her career and has spoken out against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem at the capital of Israel.
In 2017, the model posted a picture of the Dome of The Rock in Jerusalem, coupled with an emotional caption.
“I’ve been waiting to put this into perfect words but I realized there is no perfect way to speak of something so unjust. A very very sad day. Watching the news and seeing the pain of the Palestinian people makes me cry for the many many generations of Palestine."
