Gigi Hadid made her debut modelling for British fashion house Burberry today (17 February). The 23-year-old walked during Riccardo Tisci’s February 2019 show – his second catwalk collection for the heritage brand.
Hadid stepped out during the first portion of the show, showcasing Tisci’s take on luxury sportswear. She wore a monochrome zip-front top over a Burberry polo shirt, with a mini skirt and calf-high boots.
The model looked strikingly different from her usual self, with strands of her California blonde hair gelled across her forehead in swirls.
The debut marks a rare London Fashion Week appearance from Hadid, who isn’t a regular at the London shows. She previously walked to model a Versus Verace collection designed in collaboration with boyfriend Zayn Malik and also starred in a one-off Tommy Hilfiger show featuring clothing that she’d designed.
The extent of her Burberry partnership has yet to be confirmed – but we wouldn’t be surprised if a campaign was right round the corner.
