Modern Muse – Gigi Hadid

I don’t know why it’s called Fashion Week, maybe because it’s a week in London, but the fashion caravan rolls on for over a month with editors, models and buyers travelling to Milan, Paris, London and New York. In February, I looked at the New York collections as they happened online – isn’t technology wonderful? Gigi Hadid will be a star of the catwalk at some of this year’s most important shows; designers who can afford to will book the girl who was crowned International Model of the Year in December 2016. Gigi is 21 and has a staggering 29million Instagram followers and 3million on Twitter. So, she is indeed the epitome of a modern muse; her hair, her make-up, her lifestyle, her boyfriends (currently Zayn Malik) and holiday destinations are poured over by legions of young women. Like many models, celebrities and film stars, it’s hard to unravel what they really like – their own style – as they mainly wear clothes from the designers for their work or borrowed clothes for events and the red carpet etc. Like many girls, their casual wear is much the same as the girl in the street but inevitably a better quality and more of it. This is rather cheering for us as the modern muse is closer to our lives than the icons of yesteryear who were so untouchable in their style. This sunny Californian is America’s sweetheart. I found 196 pictures of her on a website dedicated to her fashion looks and that was between December 2016 and February 2017. Black leggings, black trousers or black leather trousers are pretty much her uniform – the trousers are cropped this season – and jeans, of course. The hoody is still the fashion item we shouldn’t be without, in silk, satin, quilted, cashmere, all the designers have produced a glamorous one. She likes her long, sweeping coats, as well as shorter pea jackets. Khaki, this season, is a go-to colour for the fashion crowd and jumpsuits are still a favourite. No fashionista of any age is not wearing a polo neck sweater and the white t-shirt. The bootee is her shoe of choice when not in sneakers, white of course. Western boots are also-rans. She has also embraced the sporty pant with the contrast side stripe. The world is her oyster and like many Supermodels of today, she is a brand and a business. So, look out for her at this month’s International Fashion Shows. She will be the star.
