Hilfiger knew that if he wanted to be talked about, bringing on a current celebrity phenomenon would be a good idea, and there was no better person than Hadid for the job.
While global ambassador is a huge honor, the fashion designer wanted her to do more than just that. As the face of the brand, Hadid collaborated with Hilfiger on a capsule collection that includes a fragrance, women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories.
They created a line called Gigi by Tommy Hilfiger, using her style, her sense, her social media presence as the top supermodel in the world today. It’s really no surprise, then, that she was named the face of Tommy Hilfiger’s newest fragrance, The Girl, inspired by Gigi’s free-spirited personality!
There was this whole buzz on social media about Gigi being fat-shamed by a Tommy Hilfiger casting director. Well, everyone knows Gigi Hadid is besties with designer Tommy Hilfiger, after all, they designed a successful collection together.
Take a look at the slideshow below!
The model says she knows why Hilfiger said what he said. “I know that when Tommy said it last week, it was in context of a larger story that wasn’t shown in that video,” said Hadid. “I know that the point of that story was that Tommy was rooting for me, and that regardless of what the stylist of that season said or what he put me in, Tommy wanted me in the show and Tommy was pushing for me and Tommy loved my curves.”
You can watch her full reaction in the video below.
I have to admit that the line they both came out with is super stunning. It’s bold, feminine, sexy and classy! Gigi never fails to stun her fans all around the world!
