24-year-old Gigi Hadid
is one of the hottest models on the planet right now — with fashion month in full swing, she’s been busy commanding the catwalks of Missoni, Versace and more, and also shared a sweet runway moment with her sister Bella Hadid when they sported
OTT dresses and Victorian-esque hairstyles at the Moschino show
What got her the most headlines recently though, involved her coming to her on-and-off again boyfriend Zayn Malik’s defence when he was criticised by YouTuber Jake Paul on Twitter. Her tweet shortly rose on the trending charts and garnered over 100,000 retweets in less than 24 hours.
Thousands of fans applauded her move and we too, found it commendable that she had stood up for her loved ones despite running the risk of subjecting herself to social media scrutiny.
While we aren’t privy to the actual details that caused this public spat to happen, Gigi's recent actions got us to take notice of her other admirable qualities. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that she had approached UNICEF
to express her passion in helping the underprivileged, and later went on to visit Bangladesh to help shed light on the country's villages and women shelters. There’s also her regular #AskGigi
sessions on Twitter, which sees her exchanging her honest thoughts and views about her life in the fast lane with her fans and followers. Now, read on as we celebrate the young supermodel’s best style moments this fashion month.
Pattern-ready in Prada
Ahead of the fashion month’s official kick-off in end-January, Gigi attended a Prada dinner party in Paris wearing a Spring 2020 look from the Italian brand. As the weather’s still freezing in Europe during this time of the year, Gigi kept herself warm and chic in a high-neck ribbed sweater, a pair of boots and a patterned suit for the event.
Vivacious in Versace
The women of Versace never shy away from flaunting their curves and their power — Gigi maintained a confident swagger as she stomped down the runway
in a not-so-ordinary black dress which featured exaggerated shoulders and signature slashes across the neckline. Her look was then topped off with razor-sharp eyeliner and a pair of leather gloves. Two words for this look: fierce and fabulous.
Magnificent in Marc Jacobs
With a crimson velvet-like beret on her head that matched her bright red lips, Gigi looked every part the elegant 1960s lady as she wore a matching skirt suit on the Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2020 runway. In this shot
of her backstage with her sister Bella, Gigi is spotted with her disposable camera, which she uses to document her behind-the-scenes experiences. Check out her photos here
Mysterious in Missoni

Gigi looked every part the mysterious, style maven in her stunning runway look from Missoni's Fall/Winter 2020 show — with orange-red eyeshadow painted on her lids, she looked cosy and so cool in her glittery, knitwear coat and her statement accessories. Another quick note on her coat: it has us dreaming of escaping to a chilly, autumn destination with its earthy and burnt tones.
Beautiful in basics at Burberry
Fresh-faced and confident at Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2020 show, Gigi sauntered down the catwalk with her signature golden locks lightly curled and tucked behind her ears to draw focus to her collared jacket and almost all-black ensemble. Her look is simple yet beautiful, which we reckon looks perfect as an airport-ready outfit.
Which was your favourite look of Gigi? Post-fashion month, we hope to see more of the supermodel rocking the red carpet at upcoming events, including the 2020 CFDA Fashion Awards (she attended last year’s in a Louis Vuitton look designed by Virgil Abloh
). Our wish though, is that she fulfils South Korean designer Minju Kim’s
dream by wearing one of her pieces, perhaps during her next date out in NYC with singer Zayn Malik? Let’s look forward to that!
