Gigi Hadid Net Worth As Of 2019: $13 Million
Gigi Hadid is one of the highest-paid models in the world, thanks to her deals with Maybelline, Evian, BMW, Versace and Tommy Hilfiger. Hadid uses social media to build on her modeling success and with nearly 30 million Instagram followers, clearly, she’s got a hold on the whole online presence thing. Her popularity and massive social media following are some of the main contributors to her attraction for lucrative work. Also, she’s pretty easy on the eyes which helps in the modeling world (or so I’m told).
Gigi Hadid (22) was born and raised in Los Angeles to real estate developer Mohamed Hadid and former model Yolanda Hadid. Her modeling career began when she was two years old, in 1997, after being discovered by Paul Marciano of Guess clothing. She started modeling with Baby Guess before stopping to concentrate on school. Hadid eventually returned to modeling in 2011. She resumed working with Marciano and was named the face of a Guess campaign in 2012.
In 2013, Hadid graduated from Malibu High School, where she was captain of the varsity volleyball team as well as a competitive horseback rider. Following high school, she moved to New York City to focus on her studies and her modeling career. Hadid studied criminal psychology at The New School beginning in the fall 2013 but suspended her studies to focus on her modeling career.
In NYC, Hadid signed with IMG Models in 2013. Her career took off once she made her New York Fashion Week debut in February 2014 walking for Desigual’s show. In that same month, she got her break in high fashion on the cover of CR Fashion Book magazine. On July 15, 2014, she starred alongside actor and model Patrick Schwarzenegger in fashion designer Tom Ford’s Eyewear autumn/winter campaign. By the end of 2014, she starred in several other Tom Ford campaigns – Tom Ford F/W 2014, Tom Ford Velvet Orchard Fragrance and Tom Ford Beauty 2014.
Gigi Hadid went from a fairly well-known success to an internationally acclaimed superstar in 2015. From 2015 to 2016, Hadid was named the Daily Front Row‘s Model of the Year and won Britain Fashion Award’s International Model of the Year. She was named brand ambassador for Maybelline, Reebok, and Tommy Hilfiger. The latter of which she co-designed a capsule collection called, “Gigi by Tommy Hilfiger”. Hadid made two appearances in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, earning her wings in the second show. She also appeared on the cover of Vogue among many other notable fashion publications.
To top it all off, Gigi started dating English singing icon, Zayn Malik, in 2015, whom she is currently with.
Hadid didn’t lose any steam moving into 2017. So far she has starred as the face of several notable campaigns, including Max Mara, Stuart Weitzman, and DSQUARED. Hadid was featured on four March 2017 Vogue covers: United States, Britain, China, and the inaugural Arabia edition. She also appeared on the covers for the CR Fashion Book, Jolie, The Daily, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, and Harper’s Bazaar.
