She has been in several issues of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and is now modeling for Victoria's Secret. She is a designer fashion runway model and has landed several high-profile advertising campaigns including Vogue magazine covers. She is only 21 years old and has been featured in music videos and movies. I am not sure if her relationships with a few rock musicians has made her uber appealing or if just because she seems to associate with all the right people at all the right times. Noone in the modeling world is as cool as Gigi Hadid. She is definitely the model of choice these days.
Her last name is Hadid which is the only indication that she is of Arab descent. She was born in Los Angeles, California and exudes the beauty and the spirit of an All-American girl. Her father was born in Nazareth and is considered a Palestinian American. Her mother is a former model of Dutch heritage. Gigi's unique beauty is a lovely combination of Palestinian and Dutch ethnicities. Her personal style and cultural upbringing is truly All-American.
