Yolanda Hadid has helped all three of her children earn successful modelling careers, and now she’s teaching other mothers and their aspiring model daughters how to do the same.
The mother of three is the host of Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, a new eight-episode series where she’ll train, teach, and challenge six pairs of aspiring teen models and their mumagers on working together and creating a successful brand.
“With enough social media followers, today’s It Girl can become tomorrow’s supermodel,” Hadid says in the trailer for the show, shared by Entertainment Weekly.
Some of her training includes working with photographers in studio and on-location shoots, physical training and workouts, and runway walk practice. The preview even teased a designer cameo from Tommy Hilfiger.
There’s a $5,000 award on the line each week, but the show’s ultimate prize is a management contract with Hadid and the opportunity to be represented by IMG Models in NYC.
In the spirit of reality TV competitions, the contestants will all live in the same house—mumagers included. What could possibly go wrong?
According to the trailer and behind-the-scenes photos, Hadid’s daughters, Gigi and Bella, make guest appearances in the show, too. At times they bestow some of their wisdom on working in the industry, and other times they coach girls on the set of a shoot. After all, it wasn’t too long ago when they were in the same position.
Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid premieres on January 11 on Lifetime.
