Gigi Hadid is an American model with an estimated net worth of $5 million. She was born on April 23, 1995 in Los Angeles. Her father is Mohamed Hadid, a real estate developer. Her mother is supermodel Yolanda Foster. She is one of three children, and she is also the oldest of all three. She has a younger brother and a younger sister, both of whom are models like herself. Her father has two older daughters, too, which means she has two older half-sisters as well as five stepsisters from her father’s subsequent marriages. Gigi Hadid’s parents were not married very long, but they do remain friendly with one another and have a lovely relationship working together as co-parents.
Throughout her high school career, Gigi Hadid was the captain of the Malibu High School Volleyball team and she was also a competitive horseback rider who loved her horses and spent as much time riding as possible. When she began getting closer to her high school graduation in 2013, she made the decision to forgo college and move to New York City in hopes of pursuing her dreams as a model. Her mother gave her many tips and ideas as to how to pursue her dreams, and she has hit it very big in the past few years as far as her modeling career is concerned.
Unbeknownst to many, however, is the fact that Gigi Hadid has actually been a model since she was only two. She was discovered by a Guess executive when she was only two, and she began modeling then for Baby Guess. Throughout her school years she did a bit more modeling here and there, but her family thought it might be a better idea for her to focus on her studies and worry about her future career later. When 2011 rolled around and she turned 16, however, she began to think about modeling again and signed with IMG Models. She has done three more Guess campaigns since, but she has also begun to work with more high fashion designers. At the moment, she is one of the mot in-demand supermodels of her time.
Now she models for designers such as Tom Ford, Chanel, Michael Kors, Max Mara, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier and she even made an appearance in the very popular Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Decembr 2015, which is a telling sign that her career has really begun to flourish. She is also a very popular music video star who has been in many videos by some of the most famous singers in the world, including Calvin Harris, Zayn, DNCE, Cody Simpson and more. For two years, she dated Cody Simpson. When that did not work out, she began dating Joe Jonas. She was later spotted with Zayn Malik and these two seem to be the hottest couple of the moment.
Gigi Hadid might be a new and very hot model at the moment, but she looks to be going nowhere anytime soon. She will continue to work and grow her net worth significantly, which makes her one of the most famous models of the moment.
