She’s certainly had a terrific 2016, scoring multiple magazines covers and high-fashion advertising campaigns, not to mention a high-profile collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. So it should come as no surprise to see Gigi Hadid turn up on the cover of W Korea. The Korean title certainly knows who to grab, having already churned out covers with girls-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss and Gigi’s sister Bella Hadid this year. Photographic duo Luigi & Iango captured Gigi for W‘s December offering, resulting in two vibrant covers for our forums to deliberate over.
Members of our forums couldn’t help but feel a little nostalgic while looking at Gigi’s latest. “The overall feel of both images reminded me of when Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott used to shoot the Louis Vuitton advertising campaigns,” pointed out vogue28.
“I echo your sentiments! There is either something wrong with me or Gigi is turning into a rather good model seeing that I’ve liked most of her work lately,” dodencebt added.
In agreement was fiqary, commenting, “Pretty good covers. And yes it has a M&M feel to the images.”
“Luigi & Iango keep doing M&M way better, they filled the void they left perfectly IMO,” laughed a presently surprised kokobombon.
Marsnoop2 liked what he saw, too: “LOVE. Total Gisele Bündchen circa 2008 vibes.”
Also a fan of the outcome was TeeVanity, praising, “WOW, these covers are lovely. When Gigi does it right she really does it right.”
“Another day, another cover. Gigi is becoming an icon in the industry, whether people like it/accept or not. She looks amazing and I love both covers,” raved guimon.
“W Korea finally injects some life into their covers. Gigi looks appropriately full of attitude – and more importantly, fresh,” noted Phuel.
