No poncho for Gigi Hadid here!
Though some Tommy Hilfiger casting agent previously thought the 21-year-old was “not quite as thin” as other models, Gigi proved her haters wrong when she walked the runway at the designer’s second annual TOMMYLAND show on Wednesday (Feb. 8, 2017) in Venice Beach, Calif. Clad in a crop top and skin-tight leather pants, the fashion It-girl proudly flaunted her rock hard abs as the sashayed down the catwalk.
Gigi, who co-designed a capsule collection with Tommy Hilfiger dubbed TommyXGigi, was joined by sister Bella Hadid and pal Hailey Baldwin to model pieces from the collection. A-list attendees spotted in the audience included Lady Gaga, Sofia Richie, Rachel Zoe and former Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello. At the end of the night, Hadid’s brother and mother, Anwar and Yolanda Hadid, presented her with a bouquet of flowers.
Little sister Bella praised her older sibling for a job well done, writing on her Instagram. “I’m so proud of you and all of your accomplishments sister..another incredible collection and the most EPIC show I have ever seen. You shut down Venice beach…!!!! There is not a day that goes by that you don’t fully & completely amaze me! I love you so much!”
