Gigi Hadid chats with Jimmy about her obsession with Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, being Glamour’s Woman of the Year and using her Stewart Weitzman shoe lines, the EyeLove and EyeLoveMore, to build new schools in Guatemala, Ghana and Laos.

As we all know now, Gigi was nominated one of the 2017 Women of the Year by Glamour Magazine along with Nicole Kidman, Solange Knowles, Samantha Bee and Maxine Waters. Read the full Gigi article and the photoshoot below:

The first time most of us saw Gigi Hadid was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In one early cameo, the oldest daughter of model Yolanda Hadid and real-estate developer Mohamed Hadid is on set for a Guess ad campaign. A model since the age of “maybe three,” her mom says, the 17-year-old seems more excited about her upcoming birthday party than the job at hand. And then she steps in front of the camera: She moves with an arresting, comes-from-within confidence; her eyes—an otherworldly shade of blue-green—are super-smized. “Gigi’s got ‘it,’” Yolanda says. “She’s taking off.”

In the five years since, Gigi Hadid didn’t just take off—she took over. She’s racked up both commercial success (Victoria’s Secret, Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, a forthcoming collection with Maybelline) and industry cred (the cover of Vogue, walking the Tom Ford show). At only 22, she has 36 million Insta­gram followers and co-designs Tommy x Gigi, a best-selling collection with Tommy Hilfiger. It’s all been enough to make her one of the ­highest-paid models in the world, according to Forbes.

Lucky? Sure, and she’s quick to admit it. “I was obviously very blessed growing up,” she says when we connect after an unrelenting Fashion Month that had her strutting down runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. But ask anyone who knows her well, and they’ll disprove any preconceived notions. “She is genuinely a thoughtful and present person, who, in the middle of the chaos, never wavers in being completely lovely,” says Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott, who cast Hadid in her first runway show, back in 2014. “Gigi has a dedication to her job, and a love for it.” Actress and 2012 Glamour Woman of the Year Lena Dunham first met Hadid through Taylor Swift (“a great connector,” she notes). “I have to admit I didn’t expect to have a ton in common with Gigi,” Dunham says. “She’s almost a decade younger than I am. She grew up among glitterati in Los Angeles. She’s a supermodel. But from the moment we met—or maybe five minutes later, when she announced her fantasy of taking a nap inside a loaf of bread—I was like, ‘Holy crap. That’s my kind of girl.’ Gigi is open, giggly, wise and hardworking…. I am lucky to have in her a fierce role model.”

It’s a fierceness Hadid credits to being the first-born of two immigrants. (Yolanda emigrated from Holland in her teens—“she sent all of the money she made back home,” Gigi says—and Mohamed was born in Palestine.) “Both of my parents came from very humble beginnings and worked very, very hard,” she says. “It seems natural for them to have instilled that in their children.” And yet it’s rarely part of the story told about her. “When I started working in fashion, it was like, ‘Gigi, the all-American.’ I was very much that ‘girl next door,’” she says, “but if you read my interviews, I always talk about my parents’ cultural backgrounds.”

There’s something else she likes to talk about: social and political issues. While a previous generation of models typically kept quiet, Hadid, who studied criminal psychology for two years at New York City’s The New School before pursuing modeling full-time, understands the power of the audience she’s built. “I want to be the person who always uses my platform to share what I’m passionate about, but it’s also scary and something I’ve learned to be cautious about” she says. But when she decides she has something worth saying, Hadid goes hard. She’s spoken out about gun control, and back in January, when President Trump signed an executive order that suspended immigration to the U.S. from seven Muslim countries, she and her sister, Bella, marched in protest with a sign that read, “We are all Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Jews” with letters highlighted to spell out the word humans.

Of course, visibility has its downside. (And dating someone as hounded as ex–One Direction singer Zayn Malik only adds to the glare.) And last fall things became downright threatening: A man she didn’t know grabbed her amid a scrum of Milan Fashion Week photographers. Hadid swiftly elbowed him in the face, a move some media outlets criticized. Still, she refused to back down. “I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did,” she wrote in Lenny. “I want girls to…know that they have the right to fight back too.” The piece resonated—“Badass, good for you,” wrote one reader. And in an era in which women are still told harassment can be the unsavory side effect of “old dinosaurs learning new ways,” that’s just the kind of badass we need.

So what should someone as accessible, as popular, as undeniably on fire as Gigi Hadid do next? Anything she wants. “If something’s inspiring me, I’ll push myself harder to get there,” she says. One thing’s for certain: She’ll continue to buck expectations. Says Dunham: “She’s a smart blond. She’s a model who doesn’t give a crap about being steeped in mystery. And in a selfish business, she makes empowering others her goal. Gigi defies every darn stereotype.”

We have added x09 scans of Gigi’s british Vogue cover, plus the (untagged) photoshoot by Patrick Demarchelier to the gallery. Also check out the “What Would Gigi Do?” interview video below…

12.04.2015

Gigi Hadid is British Vogue’s January cover star. Making her debut for the magazine, Hadid wears a jumper by British high-street brand Topshop on the cover, along with a Bally leather jacket, while inside the issue she talks candidly about her meteoric rise – which many attribute to her success on social media.

“I don’t change anything about myself – what I post just works,” she told us. “When people are different on social media than they are in real life, it becomes forced. Cara Delevingne was never scared of being weird. She opened that door for me. But I don’t think I just get hired because I have Instagram followers. My jobs are also what gets me followers.”

Kendall Jenner, another model whose 2015 has been unprecedentedly successful, is a close friend of Hadid’s and – although many people compare them, having both first found fame on reality television shows – Hadid revealed that they are actually quite different as people.

“Kendall’s more guarded. I’m more feisty,” she said. “I don’t want to say outgoing, because she is really outgoing once you get to know her. And when we’re both having fun, she makes me a lot more spontaneous. It’s a good balance. But neither of us likes to stay out past 11.”

Hadid – who made her Victoria’s Secret show debut last month – recently made headlines for taking on online bullies who were criticising her figure and claiming she was curvier than her catwalk contemporaries. Feisty as she claims to be, Hadid continues to show her detractors that their comments have no impact on the way she feels about herself or how she conducts her career.

“Yeah, I’m an athletic person. But I love my body because I know what it’s been through to be what it is, and honestly I’m not going to change for someone that is depressed about their life,” she said. “The Victoria’s Secret Angels aren’t going anywhere; I’m not going anywhere; plus-sized models aren’t going anywhere.”

The January issue is available Monday December 7, we will add scans as soon as we have them!

You know and love and are obsessed with Gigi Hadid, and up until this point, you’ve probably been anxiously waiting for when and if she would finally walk in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

On Thursday, Gigi and her modeling agency posted heartwarming photos and videos on Instagram of the moment Gigi found out she will get to be a model in the show, which takes place Nov. 10 and airs on Dec. 8.

It really comes as a surprise to no one because girlfriend is a top model and gorgeous, but understandably so, this was quite an emotional moment for Gigi, who says in her caption that it’s been her dream forever.

… and no one was happier than her beau, Joe Jonas, 26, who will be happily sitting in the front row of her debut show pleased as punch! Joe soon retweeted Gigi’s news with his own message saying, “so happyfor you.” And boy can’t he wait to cheer his girlfriend on! Awwwwww

The heart eye emojis never stop flowing when it comes to Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas, who have swiftly become one of the cutest couples in Hollywood. When they’re not being super cute on Instagram, they’re being the most supportive boyfriend and girlfriend in existence.

Obviously, GIJoe is a regular topic of conversation whenever Gigi and Joe are out promoting their solo projects, and luckily, they’re still in that fuzzy, lovey-dovey new stage of their relationship where they’re open to talking about it.

So when Joe was out promoting his awesome new band DNCE at the iHeartRadio music festival over the weekend, E!Online asked him to describe Gigi in one word, and that word (that he thought of instantly, mind you) will melt your heart and turn you into a ​literal​ heart eye emoji.

That word: “Happiness”

Just before New Year’s Day, Gigi Hadid received an extraordinary gift. While on a routine visit to her agency, IMG, the up-and-coming model’s agent handed her a present to unwrap. Inside the box was a contract finalizing Hadid’s role as the newest face of Maybelline.

Recalling the moment over the phone to Vogue yesterday, her excitement was palpable. After all, signing with the iconic American beauty house represents a career milestone for the 19-year-old Californian—but it also brings her full circle. “In middle school, I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup,” she explains, “I secretly bought Maybelline’s SuperStay 24HR concealer at CVS. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world.” So cool, in fact, that she still keeps a bottle in her bag to this day.

Starting this morning, she’ll have access to more than just concealer: Hadid, who kicked off her career as a Guess Kids model at age two, has soaked up a lifetime of beauty advice on set—and she’s ready to put it to good use with the company’s vibrant arsenal of high-impact eye shadows and lipsticks, as well as its skin-warming bronzers and lash-lengthening mascaras.

In an effort to shake up her routine every few months, she says, “I pay attention to how every makeup artist does everything.” For example, after noticing how a wash of nude eye shadow made her eyes appear more open and their green color pop, she recently incorporated the technique into her own repertoire, mimicking the shape (“more round than winged”) and the brushes used to get the look. “You have to try different things to see what you like best.”

Luckily for Hadid, the fun is just beginning: The model—who has already walked the Chanel runway, starred in the Pirelli Calendar, and played a pivotal role in the re-creation of one memorable Vogue cover—will debut her first Maybelline ad this October. Not that you’ll have to wait that long to see her in action. We predict she will be sharing every beauty adventure on Instagram with her 1.5 million followers—meaning your feed is about to get that much more colorful.

Supermodel Gigi Hadid has shared a unique glimpse into the rigorous workout routine that enables her to maintain such a trim and toned physique.

The 19-year-old, who recently posed topless in a stunning campaign for Guess, invited the Vogue.com cameras to join her at the Gotham Gym in New York, where she takes part in regular one-on-one boxing training.

And after going through some intensive warm-up exercises, which include skipping and ladder training, the Victoria’s Secret model steps into the ring to go up against her burly-looking fitness instructor Rob Piela, all the while offering a series of tips and tricks to the camera as she throws a few well-aimed punches.

‘Boxing has been great for me, because it’s like my new sport, so it’s something that I can get better at,’ Gigi explains. As she starts bouncing around the ring, the budding boxer adds: ‘So you want to keep your hands up by your face, obviously, to protect the gold.

‘And then you’re going to put your left hand at [your opponent], it’s called a jab and it’s usually to keep the distance from you.’Gigi, who is dating Austalian popstar Cody Simpson, continues by demonstrating her ferocious jab technique, aiming her fist directly at the camera while remaining on the balls of her feet. ‘And then you’re going to go to your right hand for power,’ she continues. ‘And then you’re going to turn and uppercut, that’s usually when they get too close to you.’
