Gigi Hadid has had an amazing year, walking the Victoria’s Secret runway alongside her sister Bella, to hosting the American Music Awards, to topping year-end lists like Instagram’s person who gained the most followers. But there are still moments when the model is caught off guard by her success — and one of them was last night in London when she was at the 2016 British Fashion Awards.
Gigi was in attendance to win the International Model of the Year award (a category sister Bella and friend Kendall Jenner were also nominated in), an honor that’s previously been bestowed upon Kate Moss, Georgia May Jagger, and Cara Delevingne, and she couldn’t hold back the tears while accepting it. After Donatella Versace presented the award to Gigi, she got emotional during her acceptance speech. “This is so crazy,” she said before acknowledging her record-setting fans on Instagram and other social platforms. “I just want to say that I know that I’m in the generation of social media, and I’m so blessed for that, but the fashion industry is my family, and you guys are the ones that I’m here for.”
Gigi also gave shout-outs to iconic fashion photographer Bruce Weber and famed stylist, editor, and aesthete Carine Roitfeld. “To Bruce [Weber] and Carine [Roitfeld], who started my career when no one else knew who I was, I can’t believe that I’m sitting her with you today,” she said. “To everyone, who has been so genuine, and looked beyond what the rest of the world looked for, that has meant so much to me. You guys know who I am, and that to me means so much, so thank you for inspiring me, and for teaching me to look beyond — and for being the most amazing industry I could ever ask to be a part of; you guys are a dream come true. So thank you so much.”
Gigi hosted the star-studded show alongside former SNL funny man Jay Pharoah last night at the Microsoft Theater. With that territory comes the pressure of choosing a spotlight-worthy wardrobe, and the minute Gigi hit the red carpet in the breathtaking white one you see above it was clear she had raised to the challenge.
First up on the roster was a gorgeous, off-the-shoulder Roberto Cavalli number (pretty different than the original pastel runway version) that showed plenty of skin in the most tasteful of ways. The gorgeous chevron-like lace pattern distracts from the fact the dress is completely see-through.
The model then took to the stage, for the first time in a fiery red Atelier Versace gown with plenty of cutouts and one killer thigh-high slit. Next up was an unlike-any-other Julien Macdonald white blazer and short combo (worn by her friend and fellow model Hailey Baldwin on the runway) that had an unexpected element: metal tassels. The embellishments hung from Gigi’s forearms, flashing the audience when she went to speak.
Her fourth outfit change was a super-sultry, skin-tight snakeskin print dress with a plunging neckline, side cutouts and a choker-like high neck—also by Macdonald. It was a neutral choice, contrasting the last two outfits, but we’re thinking this muted outfit was a strategic move made to cleanse your palette and get your eyes ready for the show-stoppers to come.
Gigi brought the drama in her fifth outfit: a stark black gown with structured shoulders, a high neck, a center split and a cleavage-baring cutout. If there ever were a dress to command attention and scream “I am powerful,” this is it.
Last, but definitely not least the supermodel stepped out in a sparkling see-through jumpsuit. (Anyone else getting serious ’90s-inspired tracksuit vibes?) After all those incredibly tight dresses, who wouldn’t want to slip into something a little more comfortable? This outfit is a prime example of how you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort.

Gigi Hadid showed just why she’s held in such high-esteem as she wowed in a stunning black bodycon dress with sheer panels and a fishtailed feathered bottom at The Power of Colours – Maybelline Make-Up Runway in Berlin.
The beauty, 20, stole the show on the red carpet, with her glamorous gown accentuating her slender curves and her black stilettos elongating her lithe legs. The 20-year-old tucked her sleek blonde tresses behind her ears and applied a slick of bold red lipstick to inject a splash of colour into her look.

Red carpet debut! Gigi showed off a brand new hairstyle on the red carpet at the American Music Awards 2015 yesterday (Sunday, Nov. 22) The new chin-length cut was parted on the side and swept back. We have added x photos from the event, plus some of Gigi leaving After Party At The Nice Guy.
“I was really inspired by the neckline of the dress,” hairstylist Bryce Scarlett tells US Mag. “It called for sexy, easy-looking hair.”
However, the style may not be a long-term commitment for the Maybelline brand ambassador. “The hair you can check back tomorrow to see if I still have short hair,” Hadid teased while on the red carpet with E! News. “There’s tricks of the trade.” Read More, here.
The textured style complemented her incredibly sexy two-piece custom outfit by Bao Tranchi, Tamara Mellon heels, and Giuseppe Zanotti clutch. “I just wanted to do something comfortable,” she said of the white crop top and maxi skirt. “It’s kind of California beachy-ish.”
Gigi Hadid arrived for dinner with Kris Jenner and the Kardashian clan at Cecconis in West Hollywood on Thursday, looking every fashionable inch a part of the family with shredded white skinny jeans, which she teamed with nude high heels and a large white coat. Earlier that evening, she attended Monica Rose X Sarah Chloe Chloe Jewelry Launch.
Gigi Hadid joined her BFF Kendall Jenner on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway last night, and ensured it was a show none of us would ever forget. The 20-year-old star donned giant wings and some tiny lingerie as she made her debut at the world famous show in New York on Tuesday evening. Beginning in a turquoise lace set of underwear, the blonde beauty had a giant cape behind her as she held her arms wide on the catwalk – revealing huge intricate wings behind her.
It was one of the more dramatic appearances and is sure to make her a leading star of the night. The star appeared as Ellie Goulding performed in front of the crowd, and the pair made a stunning duo. Gigi then completely transformed as she swapped into baggy yellow trousers and a tiny red crop top for the dressing up stage – showing a complete contrast to her earlier outfit.
Later Gigi attended the After Show Party with her Mom, Yolanda. Awww, go Gigi!
