Gigi Hadid is a model whose name has been popping up around fash town since February. This might have something to do with her debut appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 50th anniversary issue as one of the Rookie’s of the Year. Introducing FashionTV’s Model of the Week, Miss Gigi Hadid.

Is it just us, or is 17 the new age of cool? For if you’re not rad Tavi Gevinson, stealing the writers’ crown as hugely successful editor and founder of Rookie magazine; or Lorde, breaking records as one of the world’s most influential musicians; then why not make your mark as the youngest rookie to grace the pages of the world’s hottest swimsuit magazine alongside models like Irina Shayk, Kate Upton and others?

Well, for Gigi Hadid, this was the age that saw her model break to stardom.

Gigi is the daughter of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star and former model, Yolanda Foster, and Real Estate Tycoon, Mohamed Hadid. She was discovered by designer Paul Marciano of Guess when she was two-years-old. She modeled for Baby Guess, Guess Kids and then took a break until the age of 17, when she signed with IMG Models.

This year, Gigi made her debut catwalk appearance over the Fall 2014-15 collections walking for Desigual at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, and joining Victoria’s Secret models Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton on the runway. She has since featured on the cover of Carine Rotfield’s CR Fashion Book and was revealed as one of the first rookie’s of 12, in this year’s edition of Sport’s Illustrated Swim.

Now, 19-years-old, Gigi is embracing her modeling career, and was recently being pictured nude for the April issue of VMan magazine.
