And we don’t call her a force to reckon with for nothing because at an age as young as hers, Gigi Hadid has long list of achievements. Since her first runway show for Desigual at New York Fashion Week, there has been no looking back. She has gone on to walk the ramp for the renowned names of Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Balmain amongst many others. As if there weren’t enough feathers in her cap, her social media standing is massive with Gigi Hadid’s Instagram channel alone having over 10 million followers.
The editorial space hasn’t been devoid of Gigi either with her now-famous face in the editorials for Vogue, Elle, Paper and Grazia while she has gone on to cover Harper Bazaar’s beauty magazine and Teen Vogue. And that’s just the modelling world. The newest Victoria’s Secret angel has broken away from the space of a traditional model and starred in music videos for Cody Simpson, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris while being the face of beauty, swimwear and luxury brands galore.
But the innumerable editorial spreads and ramp walks aren’t the only places where Gigi struts her style. To her, even street walks and pavements are her own runway as Hadid’s street style is highly covetable. With a sense of personal style that has the essence of a model off-duty, Gigi has a way of making even the most casual of pieces look groomed and poised. She has got the Southern California look hands down with the blonde waves, the sunkissed skin and athletic body.
During the day, Hadid plays it cool in simple white t-shirt and black leggings with zip detailing, a look that’s makes it easy to steal her style. There’s a preppy charm in place with the sweater casually tied around her, a comfortable pair of sneakers and reflective sunglasses that add a pop of colour. When the night falls, Gigi’s does a 360 degree turnaround with her red hot look. An elegant look that’s simple to recreate, her gown is the showstopper with its embroidered bodice and slit. She pairs the look with a strappy pair of heels and leaves her golden locks in defined waves.
Her spin on sweatshirts and workout gear make them look like so much more than just athletic wear. On Gigi, a coat falls magnificently, adding style to her stride. When she’s out for a night on the town; her attire of choice, the fitted dress sits perfectly on her curves. Regardless of whether she’s on the ramp or off it, Gigi Hadid commands the clothes she’s in, whether it is denim cutoffs or a Versace campaign.
