Maybelline New York announced today that American golden girl Gigi Hadid is their newest spokesperson. Gigi will join an elite group of spokeswomen which includes Christy Turlington, Adriana Lima, Jourdan Dunn, Emily DiDonato, Marloes Horst, Kemp Muhl, and a host of others. ‘Being a Maybelline New York spokesperson means more to me than anyone can imagine; it doesn’t seem real. It’s the most incredible feeling and is a dream come true,’ said Gigi. ‘I feel so honored and humbled to be a part of the iconic brand I grew up with, and I am very excited by this opportunity.’ At only 19, Gigi has graced the runways of Marc Jacobs, Giles, Sonia Rykiel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeremy Scott, and Chanel. She landed the cover of the fourth installment of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, and the December 2014 cover of Harper’s Bazaar in Malaysia. Mentored by Carine Roitfeld, Gigi has sat for renowned photographers including Steven Meisel, Mario Sorrenti, Craig McDean, Bruce Weber, Gilles Bensimon, Sebastian Faena, and Ellen Von Unwerth. ’We are thrilled to welcome Gigi Hadid to Maybelline New York,’ said Jerome Bruhat, Global Brand President. ‘As the fashion industry’s newest ‘it’ girl, Gigi is known for her confident, fun, seductive spirit. She reflects our brand values and represents Maybelline New York women all over the world who are smart, sexy, optimistic and full of life.’ The green blue-eyed beauty’s modeling career began at a young age when she was discovered by Guess co founder Paul Marciano. She would go on to model for Baby Guess, Guess Kids, then graduating to Guess. Campaigns with Tom Ford, Sports Illustrated, and a spot in the notorious 2015 Pirelli calendar have followed. A Malibu native, the media darling now calls the streets of New York City home. Entering 2015 on a high note, Gigi has a striking international social media presence, clocking in at over 1.4 million Instagram followers and 193K Twitter devotees.
