Gigi Hadid takes us backstage at Anna Sui Spring Summer 2016 at New York Fashion week and tells us why she adores fashion designer Anna Sui and what her role as spokesmodel for Maybelline New York means to her. 

Gigi Hadid has always been open about her feelings about her fame as a social media supermodel and has been very candid about her feelings on body shaming on social media. She has been a Maybelline New York spokesmodel since 2015 and tells us it’s a role she is very proud of – 

“I grew up watching Maybelline New York commercials and singing the jingle in my bathroom and doing my makeup and to now be able to be in the commercials and be on the screen with the girls singing along too is amazing. I genuinely love the brand and the products and that was something really important to me. It’s very important to me when I make all my deals I genuinely want to be able to represent things that I love because I won’t be able to do it as well if I don’t love the brand, so I’m very happy to be a Maybelline girl.

My message to young girls about beauty is – this sounds so cliche but all the supermodels that I’ve met along the way – it doesn’t matter how beautiful they were, even if I looked up to them for my entire life it always ruined it if they were not nice or not genuine. My favorite girl is Candice Swanepoel who I grew up loving my entire life. Candice is the most genuine, kind person and that makes me love her even more.”

Designer Giambattista Valli told us he cast Gigi Hadid in his Spring 2016 show because he felt she embodies the spirit of his woman, “She’s perfectly beautiful, and so stunning and so real“.

American born Gigi Hadid is 20 years old and is signed to IMG models and is a social media superstar with over 7.2 million Instagram followers.  She has appeared in Sports Illustrated and is one of the faces of Maybelline New York.  During the recent Spring 2016 fashion month, Gigi walked in some of the world’s hottest designer fashion shows including Anna Sui, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Balmain.

Backstage at Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 show supermodel Gigi Hadid speaks to us about body-shaming on social media and the impact of the bold viral post that she recently shared with her Instagram followers.  Hadid had received numerous negative comments on the popular social media app, with some criticizing her curves, slightly jumpy walk and reality show pedigree.  On September 28th she defended herself with a passionate, heartfelt post on her Instagram feed:

“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows… You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.” @GigiHadid

We caught up with Gigi Hadid backstage at the Giambattista Valli show in Paris to find out more about her empowering message for women everywhere.

Watch our Prabal Gurung Spring 2013 backstage beauty video with makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and hairstylist Paul Hanlon and top model Josephine Skriver.

The beauty look of Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2013 show – ethereal, light and a bit haunted. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury used Mac Cream Color Base in Luna on the cheekbones and eyelids to give the models a beautiful glow.  Paul Hanlon said that Prabal wanted the girl to look more innocent this time, almost angelic, so he kept the hair clean and very simple.  “It’s all about quality hair” this season.

Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2103 collection was inspired in part by the artist Anish Kappor.  As Prabal explained to me backstage – it’s all about the dress, “what is sensual and sexy to me – are dresses that are not so body-con. The whole idea of giving freedom to women is really appealing right now“.
