19-year old up and coming model Gigi Hadid is believed to be the new face of Victoria’s Secret younger line Pink. The model, who is the daughter of Yolanda Foster, revealed she was working on a photo shoot with the lingerie giant via her Twitter and Instagram pages. She wrote in the caption: “bein a goof on set of @VSPINK with #ellistonlutz“.
The partnership is the latest big break for Hadid, who has already appeared in fashion shows for illustrious brands like Chanel as well as featuring in campaigns for big brands such as Cavalli and Tom Ford and a slot in the Pirelli calendar as Miss November.
Hadid has faced similar criticism to fellow rising star Kendall Jenner as she has been accused of using her famous parentage to advance her career, but she told The Independent that this was not the case: “Yeah on one side we [Kendall Jenner and herself] have great families that have been in the spotlight and have taught a lot on that side of things, but we also have the work ethics to back it up”. Talking about her successful year, Hadid also said that “three things: work hard, be nice and make a friend” have led her to jobs. “I’ve met so many people that have led me to opportunities like the Pirelli Calendar that I would have never thought that was possible for me”.
