Gigi Hadid needs no introduction. In fact, “Gigi” could stand alone as a mononym — the way other supermodels like Naomi, Kate, and her sister, Bella, can. With zero exaggeration, Hadid is the supermodel of our generation.
She famously got her first modeling gig at just two years old for Baby Guess, before returning to modeling in 2011. Just three years later, Hadid landed her first fashion week stint. The following year, she was made a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Since then, she’s been a fixture at fashion month, jet-setting around the world to walk the runways of Givenchy, Fendi, and Prada, among many others — often opening or closing their shows, positions reserved for the most elite.
She’s a magazine darling, gracing countless covers and editorials; She’s an easy favorite of designers like Donatella Versace and Tommy Hilfiger — so much so that Hadid even worked with the latter on a series of collections. She’s been the face of some of the most popular luxury (Chanel, Versace, and Moschino) and high street (Reebok and Maybelline) brands. Her range truly knows no limits.
In September 2022, the supermodel launched her own cashmere label, Guest In Residence, cementing her spot in the fashion stratosphere — not just as muse, but as designer herself. Most recently, Hadid added “host” to her resume after joining Netflix’s Next In Fashion, a design competition ushering in the next generation of talent.
All this to say: she is the moment. Let’s look back at Hadid’s most iconic runway looks to date.
