21 Times We Completely Fangirled Over Gigi Hadid

Let’s face it — it's damned near impossible to make model Gigi Hadid look bad. This is why we had a tough time choosing the best of her runway beauty looks from the past few years. There’s the hair — from classic, beachy waves to that infamous #KenGi hair swap. And her makeup? Let's just say she's well-positioned to take over Gisele's glowy runway reign.

And since she's always giving us major inspiration, we figured we'd round up some of our favorite looks of hers. From graphic eyes to gothic lips to gorgeous hair accessories, her styles run the gamut — yet always land firmly in the realm of #beautyinspo. Check 'em out in the slides ahead.

When walking in a show that celebrated her own collection — Tommy x Gigi — it's no surprise that the model showed up looking every bit herself. Soft, nude lips, a subtly defined eye, and cool, off-duty waves have come to define her everyday look.

For the after-party on Tommy pier, Gigi strutted through the summer heat in a sky-high braid Beyonce would approve of.

Glowing skin and bright red lips will never go out of style — and they look especially striking when paired with Gigi'd plain white tee.

Her bronzy skin and voluminous, blond waves at the Moschino fall 2015 show are giving us maje '80s Christie Brinkley vibes — and the look is totally poised for a comeback.

It’s rare to catch Gigi on the runway without her flowing locks, which is why it's so fun to see her with this razor-cut, grown-out pageboy wig at Marc Jacobs' spring 2015 show. And is it just us, or does she especially look like younger sister Bella here?

The weathered faux bob, winged liner, and dewy highlighter are exactly what we imagine a '60s-era Tippi Hedren to look like the morning after — perfectly imperfect and even more gorgeous than the night before.

Sure, we totally loved Gigi's down-to-there ponytail at this year's Met Gala. But the real winner of the night was her insanely expensive manicure.

This icy-blue smoky eye, paired with disco-approved barrel curls, at Spring 2016 DVF has us feeling '70s redux.

Gigi let her beach-queen roots show on the Tommy Hilfiger spring 2016 runway. The peekaboo, thread-wrapped micro-braid especially has us pining for summer.

Summer beauty rules, be damned. Gigi's beachy waves couldn't look more beautiful paired with unexpected crimson lips and graphic liner.

Gigi rocked a serious power pony at Balmain spring 2016. The trick to balancing out such a severe hair look? Pair it with barely-there makeup and bold brows.

Golden-goddess makeup plus classic, Hollywood-siren waves make for some beauty math we can get behind.

Gigi looks every bit the Victoria's Secret model part here at the VS Fashion Show, complete with voluminous waves and whimsical wings.

From Cleopatra to Gigi, kohl-rimmed eyes (and nude lips) will never go out of style. But add a glossy sheen to the liner and a perfect bend to the hair, and the look takes on a modern edge that we can’t wait to wear tonight.

Even with double graphic liner and an oversized 'do, Gigi wore the look — and didn't let the look wear her — at Chanel Spring 2016.

Okay. Stay with us here. The escape-from-the-salon-mid-highlights hair may be too much for, well, everyone. But those greenish-black lips and subtle sable eyes at the Fenty x Puma show earlier this year had us jonesing for a gothic summer.

Gigi's Versace fall 2016 look was tough, unapologetic, and exactly how we imagine the star of a modern-day Easy Rider reboot if it had all female leads. (Hey, Ghostbusters can’t have all the fun.)

It’s no secret that Gigi is a card-carrying member of the #BalmainArmy. At the fall 2016 show, her beauty look sparked a collective internet freakout when she swapped hair colors with bestie Kendall Jenner (otherwise known as the #KenGi swap). We're equally enamored with her makeup — rosy lips, flushed cheeks, and minimal eyes.

Chanel’s trademark quilting as expressed in eyeshadow is not only a genius move on makeup artist Tom Pecheux’s part, but makes one of our favorite models look like a Roy Lichtenstein damsel come to life.

There’s nothing more summer-glam than Gigi's bold look at the Much Music Video Awards. Makeup artist Patrick Ta layered two lipsticks (Maybelline The Loaded Bold in Orange Danger and Smoking Red, both available in July) to perfectly match her blazer.

At the iHeart Radio Awards in Toronto this past June, Gigi fulfilled our Disney princess dreams with a down-to-there ponytail.
