On October 25, Gigi Hadid dazzled in starry blue alongside legendary designer Tommy Hilfiger at the WWD 2022 Honors Awards. On the red carpet, the 27-year-old supermodel wore a Tommy Hilfiger royal blue velvet suit, which she paired with a regal white blouse and classic white stiletto pumps. The stunning beauty completed the designer look with long, platinum mermaid waves and a soft makeup palette while flashing her famous smile. Tommy Hilfiger, who is set to receive the John B. Fairchild Honor for Lifetime Achievement, joined her at the Cipriani South Street event location, according to The Daily Mail. Tommy, too, wore a blue suit with a black tie and matching shoes.
Gigi’s radiant appearance occurs amid drama. The model recently chastised Kanye West for his “White Lives Matter” stunt at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month. “You’re a bully and a joke,” she wrote in part in the comments section of a post in which Kanye insulted Vogue fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson for openly criticising his Paris fashion show on Tuesday, October 4. Kanye later responded on social media with a direct insult, comparing her to a “Cabbage Patch.”
Still, the stunning model appeared unconcerned as she walked the red carpet on Tuesday.
And, despite appearing to be a natural in the fashion industry, she recently admitted to having “imposter syndrome.” “I have imposter syndrome all the time,” she admitted to Vogue in an interview published on Friday, October 14. Gigi, who has a 2-year-old daughter Kai with ex Zayn Malik, discussed her anxiety during the September launch of her Guest In Residence cashmere line.
“You can’t model forever,” she went on to say. “I was creative, and I saw my life going in that direction.” I was already considering cashmere, but [pregnancy] made me consider how much more settled I would feel if I worked in an office. I can bring my daughter.
Clearly, Gigi will continue in fashion in some way, despite her own reservations, if her regal appearance on Tuesday is any indication.
