The sisters’ supermodels were inspired by fellow catwalk beauty Mica Arganyaraz, 29, who called on fellow industry leaders to pledge the money they earn from shows to organizations that provide aid to the people of the war-torn country.

Bella, 25, wore an oversized shirt in the colors of the Ukrainian flag to show her support in a photo posted to Instagram earlier this week.

She captioned the photo: “Watching my Ukrainian friends and colleagues working hard here in Europe, so close but so far from their family/friends/home in Ukraine who are subjected to one of the many occupations and brutal invasions now taking place in the world. A very emotional and humbling experience for me.

Hearing their stories and emotions firsthand is devastating and I wholeheartedly stand with them to support them. I stand with everyone affected by this war and the innocents[sic] Life has been forever changed from the hands of the “force”.

Bella had already shown her support for the Mica Donation initiative, posting, “I said it @micaarganaraz.”

“We have many friends, colleagues, Ukrainian models, production, acting and see the lack of communication/knowledge about the war…so close is very sad. It is incredibly strange to walk the catwalks as our business, especially during a time like this.

It forces people in our industry to do their research and have open conversations about the hell going on next door.

Gigi previously confirmed that she is donating all her profits to Ukraine-Palestine Fashion Week. The exhibitors’ father, Muhammad, is a Palestinian Arab who spent part of his youth as a refugee.

She wrote on Instagram: “Having a set schedule for Fashion Month means that my colleagues and I often present new fashion collections during the most painful and shocking times in history. We don’t have control over most of our work schedules, but we like to walk “for” something.

Following in the footsteps of my friend @micarganaraz, I pledge to donate my profits from the Fall 2022 shows to help those suffering from the war in Ukraine, as well as continue to support those who are suffering from the same in Palestine. Our eyes and hearts should be open to all human injustice.

In February, Mika announced: “I have to say it looks pretty weird at walking fashion shows knowing there’s a war going on on the same continent. “I will donate a portion of my earnings at this fashion week to help Ukrainian organizations.”

The Argentine beauty called on others to do the same.

“For my typical friends and colleagues and anyone else who also experiences this feeling, this is probably something we can all contribute to.”
