Besides the obvious fact that she is superhumanly beautiful, Gigi Hadid was born into the intricately connected Beverly Hills family that includes the Jenners and, of course, the Kardashians. Hadid has been modeling for Guess since the age of two, and is helping trail-blaze the modeling industry in all ways social media related. Hadid’s instagram is a perfectly calculated balance between her life and her business, and with almost 6 million followers, it never sleeps. Hadid’s look abandons flirty for full-on, in-your-face, high-end sexy, and she is responsible for influencing trends like cut-outs, crop tops, and skin-tight bodysuits.
This year Hadid is the new face of Maybelline New York, adding new, ironic value to the phrase: Maybe she’s born with it.
