Jelena Noura “Gigi” Hadid born April 23, 1995) is an American model. She was signed to IMG Models in 2013. In November 2014, Hadid made her debut in the Top 50 Models ranking on models.com. In January 2015, she was named the Daily Front Row’s “Model of the Year”. In 2016, she was named “International Model of the Year” by the British Fashion Council.
Gigi Hadid was named one of the 12 rookies in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue in 2014 and she hasn’t stopped from there.
Gigi has taken to acting in and directing videos for artists along the likes of Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift, DNCE, and Zayn.
Still, her highly successful modeling career (including her Victoria’s Secret gig) has nothing on her ability to throw an absolutely killer birthday bash —
as proven by her most recent birthday party… but what do you expect when you stroll in with Kendall Jenner.
FACT: Gigi Hadid is of Dutch and Palestinian ancestry.
