Heard of Gigi Hadid yet? If not, you’re definitely about to.
The 19-year-old has just been named the new face of Maybelline, cementing her position as the model-to-watch this year.
It’s easy to see why they picked her – cute California girl-next-door looks aside, Gigi has already strutted down the Chanel runway, starred in the much-talked about Pirelli Calendar last year and has been a Guess model since the age of 2.
‘I’m so beyond honored & excited (at a loss for words, really) to be the new face of @Maybelline! Thank you so much to my team at @imgmodels @luizmattos1906 for believing in me and helping make this happen, and to the whole #MaybellineNewYork team for being so welcoming.
‘It’s such a dream come true to be a part of this family’, she wrote on Instagram following the announcement.
Gigi will debut her first Maybelline ad this October, but if you can’t wait that long to see her in action, join the other 1.5 million people who folllow her prettier than prettty Instagram account.
