The supermodel sisters were living in the lap of luxury long before their lucrative modelling careers. Their real estate developer dad, Mohammed Hadid, 67, and his palatial mansion feature in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia along with his wife, Shiva Safai. His incredible, 48000ft Bel Air mansion is luxuriously named Le Belvédère. The website for the property says that over 1,000 people worked on building and decorating the place. The magnificent home boasts a gym, a wine cellar that can hold 5000 bottles, a ballroom that can accommodate 200 people, a baroque home theater that seats 60, a game room and a Turkish-style spa with pieces imported from Morocco, Turkey, Indonesia, and China.
Mohammed made his money designing swanky buildings including the Ritz Carlton hotel amongst other resorts and mansions.
‘The homes I have done in the Los Angeles area are a combination of neoclassical style with a very modern interior. I don’t follow trends so I make my own,’ he told Harper magazine.
‘I create homes that feel like a home — it could be a palace or a mansion — but each one has a comfortable feeling.’
His ex-wife, Yolanda is the mother to Gigi and Bella. More photos below…
