“Woke up to this!!!!”
This is how supermodel Gigi Hadid expressed her thrill on her Instagram account, sharing a photo of Lady Gaga wearing a denim jacket from her Tommy x Gigi line.
Gigi’s excitement continues:
“Seeing people I love, & who inspire me, wear my clothes is one of the most special and heartwarming feelings in the world… U IN THIS @TOMMYxGIGI JACKET MADE MY DAY @ladygaga”
It seems like Gaga, a relentless fashion icon in her own right (Her meat dress, 24-inch heels & superstar outfit come to mind) can’t get enough of Gigi Hadid’s latest capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger. Not only has she been caught wearing Gigi’s sunglasses, but she also made a surprise appearance at Hilfiger’s L.A show, where Gigi’s line was also showcased.
The friendship of Gigi Hadid and Lady Gaga probably began around 2014, as Gigi’s international modeling career started taking off. Gaga had already collaborated with top fashion designers, including Alexander McQueen, Thierry Mugler, and Versace, in campaigns, videos, and films. Unsurprisingly, fashion has always been at the heart of the Gigi-Gaga love story.
The W magazine describes how the celebrity duo has kept running into each other during various fashion events, such as the Met Gala, the Fashion Los Angeles Awards and Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris. During the latter event, Gigi strutted her stuff and Gaga performed.
In addition to warm hugs, greetings, mutual shout-outs and emojis on social media, Gaga keeps supporting Hadid’s career. For the cover of the first-ever Vogue Arabia, debuted this month, Gigi Hadid was styled by Gaga’s stylist, Brandon Maxwell. True to her Palestinian roots, Gigi was shot in black and white wearing a beaded veil.
While the Joanne singer likes posing with Gigi and her sister Bella Hadid and watching them on the catwalk, Gigi’s emotions towards Lady Gaga seem even stronger. In an interview for Entertainment Tonight, the stunning model praised Gaga:
“Gaga has been a great kind of big sister to me,” Gigi said. “And has given me amazing advice, and I think she is such a beautiful person that is just set on spreading love everywhere she goes. I think that she is one of a kind, she is amazing.”
