I guess I thought they were from Saudi because the 1st post says they are buyers for their mother's clothing store in Saudi Arabia.

They have very good style! And I agree that they look like they came off a Botticelli painting. Oh to be young, rich, privileged, and beautiful. *sighs*

What ethnicity are they? Judging from their coloring, I don't think they're Middle-Eastern.

I remember seeing photos of them on Sart and thinking they were Irish. That is what their coloring says to me. I can't believe they are 16 - I find it a bit odd that 16/17 year olds jet off around the world to attend shows, shoots, etc. I mean, the modelling and maybe even styling - fair enough. But do 16 year-olds really have all the skills to act as buyers? Still, it must be a nice life and I think they have interesting style.

Chloe Parks tried posting these, but she was encountering some problems with the pictures showing up, so I'm posting them for her.

And some articles..

Haya & Sama Abu Khadra: Fashionís Twin Muses

The Abu Khadra twins have been attracting the attention of curious onlookers ever since they began appearing at the Paris collections a couple of seasons ago. Itís hard to miss the striking pair, with their signature cascade of russet locks, making their way to a show across the Jardin des Tuileries or visiting Coco Chanelís private apartment at 31 Rue Cambon.

Of Palestinian heritage, 17 year-old Haya and Sama grew up in Dubai and began attending the shows at an early age with their mother, Rula Abu Khadra, who runs The Art of Living fashion store in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Today they frequently attend the shows on their own, scouting the collections for new talent to feature in the store.

ďWe help when our mom doesnít have the time to come to the shows,Ē recalled Haya in an interview with WWD, explaining that if a collection wins their seal of approval, their mother will then visit the showroom to place orders.

Their inventive sense of style (mixing labels and vintage finds with offbeat accessories) has earned them the devotion of countless style bloggers. In the last two years alone, they have been featured in a fashion editorial for i-Dís winter 2009 issue, as well as WWD and Harper's Bazaar Arabia. The gorgeous pair have also served as muses to a number of designers. Luisa Beccaria has described them as ďa Botticelli painting come to life.Ē While this past November, Natalie Rykiel invited the twins to model the Sonia Rykiel Spring collection in Dubai.

Whether sitting front row at Chanelís couture collection or being photographed for Kiehlís ad campaign, the sisters may be a reminder of the diversity found within the Middle East and that no one particular look defines the region.

Paris Fashion Week.....Haya & Sama

They are possibly the youngest buyers in Paris, the 16-years-old twin sisters Haya & Sama who are always attending lots of shows because their mum Rula Abu Khadra runs The Art of Living fashion store in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Interesting hair!

Ah finally someone highlighted this point.

I'm rather baffled by their age, they're so young to do that kind of activities
