Woman Crush Wednesday: Gigi Hadid

Name: Jelena Noura “Gigi” Hadid

Birthdate: April 23, 1995

Birthplace: Los Angeles, California

Claim to fame: Being a young and popular up-and-coming fashion model who has famous friends (Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift) and has dated other famous people (Cody Simpson, Joe Jonas).

Where we can see her next: Besides walking down the runway for about every popular fashion designer, she also just became a brand ambassador for Maybelline this past year.

Interesting fact: Her step-dad, David Foster, is the former step-dad of reality TV star, Brody Jenner. David Foster used to be married to Jenner’s mom, Linda Thompson. Hadid’s mom, Yolanda Foster, is also one of the Desperate Housewives of Beverly Hills, which featured Gigi on a few different episodes and is partially what helped her become a “somebody”.

Best quote: “I’ve always said, ‘Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane” — Hadid’s views on “everything in moderation”.

Why we love her: Our WCW this week is Gigi Hadid — one of the most stunning and photographed young faces in the modeling industry. She’s made a name for herself by being the offspring of Desperate Housewives of Beverly Hills reality star Yolanda Foster, as well as the former girlfriend of pop singer Cody Simpson, and now the current girlfriend of Joe Jonas.

While some of her credentials definitely have to do with whom she knows, it’s undeniable that Gigi is stunning. So the fact she’s one of the bright new faces in the modeling industry is probably more to do with her genetic fortune, rather than who she dates or shares Snap chats with.

Hadid first made an impact when she played Cody Simpson’s love interest in his video for “Surfboard”. She then followed up that steamy video shoot by playing Miguel’s love interest in his video for “Simplethings”. Both of these starring music video roles are what really propelled her stature in the modeling world. Add that with her public relationship with the Simpson and you have the perfect combination to catapult her fan base and the media’s interest in her. 

While it’s easy to shrug this girl off because she’s friends with anti-role models like Kendall Jenner and runs in your typical youth-elite New York class that seems cut straight from Gossip Girl, or that she’s dating a Jonas brother (whom we still feel this teenage responsibility to dislike for some reason), if you’ve ever seen her in an interview, she’s as sweet as pie. She’s also attractive enough that you can’t deny she’s a special gift to the earth in some way. 

Gigi Hadid, she may be the daughter of a desperate housewife, but I think there’s something more special about her than drinking wine and getting Botox for a living.
