2016 has no doubt been Gigi Hadid’s moment to shine, and with the latest issue of CR Fashion Book, the model lands another cover story. Issue 8 focuses on Americana style, and the California-raised beauty personifies the blonde bombshell persona. Photographed by Sebastian Faena and styled by Carine Roitfeld, Gigi poses in sexy styles. The swimsuit model serves curves for days in a strapless Versace dress or black Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane gown.
Tommy Hilfiger set sail with his fall-winter 2016 collection presented during New York Fashion Week. The Park Avenue Armory was made over into the T.H. Atlantic with a lineup of early twentieth century inspired wares. A cast featuring top models including Hailey Baldwin, Sara Sampaio and new global brand ambassador Gigi Hadid, walked the runway in lightweight dresses, naval inspired coats and pajama dressing. The Tommy Hilfiger woman channeled her inner princess wearing baby doll dresses and glittering tiaras. Injections of 2016 can be seen with the addition of leather jackets, embellished bombers and metallic ankle boots.
Kicking off Paris Haute Couture Week, Donatella Versace brought sporty vibes to Atelier Versace’s spring 2016 runway show. Despite an opening of boxy bombers and suit jackets, Versace did not ditch the body-con silhouettes so commonly associated with the brand. Gowns with cut-out details and asymmetrical slashes showed plenty of skin while cropped vests and sweaters gave an athleisure take to couture. An all-star cast including Irina Shayk, Lara Stone, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and spring’s campaign star—Gigi Hadid—hit the catwalk with pure feminine energy.

Just when we thought fashion town was looking oh-so-quiet in the lead-up to Christmas, along comes the news that Gigi Hadid—2015’s main girl—is set to launch a collection for autumn next year with the American powerhouse Tommy Hilfiger.
The label has been a supporter of Gigi (and sister Bella) for some time, casting them both for the reggae runway of S/S 16, but this takes their working relationship to an entirely new level, naming her a ‘global ambassador’. It will be the first fashion collaboration Gigi, 20, has entered into, and knowing the impact that her clothing choices make—especially her downtime casual get-ups—this is bound to mean big business.
