Gigi Hadid Versace’s New Face, New Icon For Classy Street Style

Gigi Hadid has bagged another big contract after she was announced to be the face of Donatello Versace’s Spring ’16 collection.

The famed fashion icon Donatella Versace just launched her Instagram account two weeks ago and the first photo was a snap of her and international model Gigi Hadid. This was the moment Gigi Hadid marked her name on the Versace enterprise.

During the Paris Haute Couture Week, she kept her brand icon status by pulling off an explicitly designed suit with glittering Swarovski ropes similar to the ones she wore throughout the collection, according to Popsugar.

Gigi Hadid’s show finale ensemble has put her on the list of top models who also wrapped a Donatella show including Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Behati Prinsloo, Stella Maxwelll, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and Stella Maxwell.

Classy Street Style

Gigi Hadid was also lauded by critics for sporting a solid street style. Her recent posts on Instagram and paparazzi shots have proven that she is the new icon for effortless style that is mostly seen on French women, according to Popsugar.

Gigi Hadid was also seen with her sister, Bella Hadid, who is also a high fashion model. Both sisters were seen with this casual look that still highlighted their own personal styles. Though it is evident that these gorgeous sisters are fond of sneakers, the choice of tops still differ.

Gigi Hadid leans more on furry fashion while Bella, though still a fan of fur, leans on the simplistic modern style.

Kendall Jenner Besties Going Strong

Amidst all the storm of rumors about her love life, one thing is consistent in Gigi Hadid’s social circle: Kendall Jenner.

The two have been queen bees of the runway during the past few years and they do not have any plans to stop. At the same time, the two are very open about their friendship.

The two actually launched a new necklace line called “KenGi” to represent their strong friendship. The two 20-year-old fashionistas reportedly bought custom-made necklaces for $275, according to Bustle.

Gigi Hadid posted about the “KenGi” necklaces on Snapchat last Jan. 21 when the two of them reunited in Europe. The next day, Keeping Up With The Kardashian star Kendall Jenner posted her own “KenGi” piece on Twitter.

The two besties also took the European tour as they were spotted meeting with another fashion gal, Cara Delevigne.

Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were reportedly sporting Parisian looks with lengthy, casual dresses last Friday.

According to Daily Mail, the duo had a “new style uniform appeared to be long coats – for Gigi, simple and black, while for Kendall, silk and floaty – with a little calf on the show.”

The gang was reportedly meeting up with other model pals like Bella Hadid, Georgia May Jagger, and Lewis Hamilton.

Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are not just besties. According People, they might actually have some degree of family relation. Apparently, Caitlyn Jenner, Kendall’s biological father, dated Linda Thompson who married David Foster.

On the other end, Gigi Hadid’s mother Yolanda Foster was previously married to Gigi’s biological father Mohamed Hadid. After getting divorced, Yolanda married David Foster.

Though they are not directly related by blood, the duo have some connection when it comes to family ties. This could be the reason why they understand each other so well — they are in both big, and somehow complicated, family setups.
