The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was held for the first time in Paris, France on November 30, 2016. The super fit models gleefully strutted down the runway at the Grand Palais surrounded by luxury, histroy and an aura of romance and intrigue. Jasmine Tookes was honored with wearing the million dollar bra and oh how she sparkled and shined! Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weekend were the musical guests. An extravanga for sure!

SI Swimsuit 2016: Gigi Hadid

Finally, a post on my shonshyne blog about Gigi Hadid. She is simply adorable with real woman curves. Her athletic, sexy build is one that I can identify with. Her personality just pulls you in closer and makes you want to be her best friend. Move around Kendall Jenner ... we all want to be best friends with Gigi!

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.
