Gigi Hadid is a fashion model. She's also dating former One Direction singer Zayn Malik. Something else that defines Gigi Hadid is her role as a big sister. And even though she and Bella Hadid are both in the same profession, she's still fiercely protective of her little sister.

British Vogue recently asked Gigi Hadid what she would do if someone was mean to Bella.

"It's like the end of your life pretty much," Gigi answered. "Backstage at a show in Paris, for some reason they let photographers take pictures while girls were changing, which just pisses me off. My sister's changing next to me and I was like, ‘If you don't put that camera away and stop shooting my sister, I'm going to come over there, I'm going to take that camera, and throw it on the floor.'"

The tides turn a bit when Gigi Hadid is reminded of those times when Bella raids her closet and tries out all her clothes.

"Oh that was like my entire life. Now we don't even live together and she still does," she said. "I don't take anything when I go to her house but she manages to be like ‘I came here in gym clothes and now we're going to dinner and I need...' Bella, bring back my belt!"

Bella and Gigi Hadid are the daughters of Yolanda Foster of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame. Aside from their fast-paced careers in the modeling industry, it sounds like Gigi and Bella are like most siblings. They spend time fighting like cats and dogs, but will have each other's back at the first time of trouble.

Are you surprised to learn how protective Gigi Hadid is of sister Bella?
