Meet the cast of Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid — an all-new series on Lifetime which follows the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star as she coaches aspiring teen models.

The series, which runs for eight episodes staring on January 11, sees Yolanda help the youngsters get to grips with the fashion industry and forging a career by offering them advice both on and off the runway.

Yolanda is mom and agent to both Gigi and Bella Hadid as well as model son Andwar, so knows a thing or two. In Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, she puts the girls and their “momagers” through their paces in an intensive eight-week program.

In it they will develop their personal brands through focusing on three strands of wellness — physical, emotional and mental. During the series, all six girls and their moms will stay in the same apartment in NYC, with a $5,000 prize up for grabs every week which they can invest in their careers.

At the end, one girl will land a full-blown management contract with Yolanda’s company and the potential to be represnted by IMG Models. It will include special appearances from both Gigi and Bella, designers Tommy Hilfiger and Nicole Miller and supermodels Devon Windsor and Alek Wek.
