Bella Hadid and Kendall Are All Over Each Other In Miami

The models have been BFFs since high school.

Most Americans are back in offices and schools after the Thanksgiving holiday. Some have survived winter 2019's first snowfall. Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, meanwhile, are spending their afternoons on the warm, sunny Miami beach. It's kind of for work: The models are in town for Art Basel, and paparazzi photographed them today looking rich, thrilled, and affectionate on the beach.

Hadid now has hair extensions, showcasing her long brown hair underneath a red bandana. Jenner, on the other hand, kept her black hair in a ponytail. A minimum of three umbrellas kept them covered.

Kardashian also posted a photo of the two of them to Instagram, writing "friendssss." Hadid chimed in on Instagram, commenting: "is that a ... dolphin?"

Hadid didn't post about their beach day to Instagram, but she did post a photo from Dior's runway show, where she showed off her waist-length extensions. "Another colorful &&&happy Dior show," she wrote.

Longtime BFFs Hadid and Jenner are often very affectionate with each other. For Hadid's birthday in October, Jenner posted a photo of her giving her fellow model a kiss, writing "happy birthday sexy."

In an interview with Mario Testino for his podcast, Jenner revealed she's been friends for Hadid for more than half a decade. "Gigi and I just started getting close when we started modeling, but Bella and I were actually really good friends since high school, and hung out every day in school before either of us started working. It’s just funny because a lot of people don’t know that Bella and I have been friends for like five or six years," she laughed. The duo even step out wearing matching outfits (opens in new tab) on occasion.
