  • Gigi Hadid knows a thing or two about off-duty dressing, and in celebration, we've rounded-up her best and most inspiring looks so far...

    She’s dating Zayn Malik, is BFFs with Kendall and Cara, and is officially a Victoria’s Secret angel. At only 20 years old, Gigi Hadid has taken over Hollywood and the fashion industry.

    Born in LA, the daughter of Dutch model Yolanda Foster and Palestinian architect Mohamed Hadid, Gigi grew up in front of the camera as mother Yolanda appears on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Like her BFF Kendall, Gigi turned her reality beginnings into bonafide stardom with 8.6million followers on Instagram and a legion of fans wanting to know her every move.

    With her killer bod and LA good looks, it’s easy to see why, but here at Marie Claire HQ, it’s all about Gigi’s off-duty and red carpet style that really has us falling head over heels.

    Starting her modelling career in 2011, Gigi first broke onto the scene as a Guess girl, with her laid-back style perfectly encapsulating the brand. With flowing blonde locks and a sun-kissed tan, the young model’s breeziness to dressing made a mark, leading her to land a spread in Sport’s Illustrated annual swimsuit issue in 2014.

    With an invitation to join Taylor Swift’s squad, Gigi quickly moved up the style stakes with her chic approach to day wear – think skinny jeans, simple black tees and the requisite black shades.

    As more and more campaigns and covers came Gigi’s way, she showed her model prowess, rocking double denim and plunging neck lines on the red carpet. most recently, Gigi’s stepped out wearing a mustard jumper and jeans = perfect low-key look for a night out in New York City. And we love the slicked back pony too.

    So in honour of Gigi’s style, we’ve decided to round up her best and most inspiring super looks.

    First up, Gigi (pictured above) put a modern spin on the trouser suit with this cool striped number by teaming it with trainers and a crop top. Scroll through our gallery to see all the other times Gigi proved she really is Queen of chic.
