Gigi Hadid is starting off 2015 with a bang. The American model has been named the new face of cosmetics giant Maybelline. Gigi revealed to Vogue.com that she was informed of the exciting news right before the new year, while paying her agency, IMG, a routine visit.
Gigi may just be 19 years old, but as a seasoned model — she was a Guess Kids model at two, has walked the Chanel show and starred in Tom Ford ads — the California girl has picked up all of her makeup tips backstage. “I pay attention to how every makeup artist does everything. You have to try different things to see what you like best.”
According to Vogue.com, Gigi will debut her first Maybelline ad in October. The blond beauty also shared the news in a short Instagram video clip to her 1.5 million followers, where she spills the one thing she’s never told anyone — until now.
