They’re identical twins, young, glamorous, muse-worthy, fashion week front row mainstays—and I’m not talking about Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Sama and Haya Abu Khadra are 18-year-old twin sisters who are quickly becoming recognizable faces (even if you can’t tell theirs apart) on sartorial blogs and fashion week front rows alike. Daughters of Rula Abu Khadra, founder of the chic The Art of Living lifestyle boutique in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the girls are of Palestinian heritage but call the glamorous Dubai home (when they’re not jet-setting to fashion shows, that is). They began generating buzz when they started scouting for their mom’s store by themselves at international fashion weeks in 2008 at the tender age of 15.
Sama and Haya have been featured on Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s Best Dressed list and in WWD, and posed for an editorial shoot in the Winter 2009 issue of i-D.
