Not since 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' and frosted lip gloss has the humble fringe really had a proper moment, which means they've got a remarkable teenage nostalgia associated with them here in the ELLE office. 

As well as Gigi, we've spotted them now on Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and Lizzy Caplan, to name but a few.

As with everything, the lifespan of this hair style is cyclical and previous to their '90s renaissance, they were made covetable by none other than French idol Brigitte Bardot, who was known for her hair almost as much as for her films. 

We've a small hunch that Gigi's fringe might just be a clip on, which is a shame, so it remains to be seen whether bangs will continue to stick around, but our teenage self hopes that they will, watch this space.
