C Girl: Sama and Haya Khadra

by intern

Haya + Sama Khadra


Distinguished by thick wavy manes, porcelain skin and mature, oft-coordinating style, Palestinian twins Sama and Haya Khadra captivated onlookers while attending Paris Fashion Week with their mother as teenagers. Now, as USC film students, Karl Lagerfeld’s young muses share their cool-school approach.

STYLE We’ve been really influenced by ’90s hip-hop fashion and early-’90s Chanel.

INSPIRATION Other than our mom [who owns an upscale boutique, The Art of Living, in Riyadh], our little sister “Baby G.” Style is usually more about attitude than anything else.

DIRECTORS We love Woody Allen, George Cukor and Howard Hawks.

MOVIE Clueless.

RESTAURANTS Gjelina, Matsuhisa, Night + Market and The Daily Dose.

HIDDEN TALENT We have our own secret written and spoken language.

CALIFORNIA Driving down palm-tree-lined streets blasting music, chasing sunsets.
