Gigi Hadid just brought Venice Beach, California to a standstill after her stellar catwalk performance at Tommy Hilfiger's AW17 runway show.

Last night, the Californian beauty took centre stage on the runway, among a pack of the fashion industry's top models, opening the show wearing a Western-inspired look of leather trousers, a cropped top and cowboy boots.


The runway, which had been transformed, as it had been last season, into 'Tommyland' – a temporary beachside theme-park filled with branded carnival rides, Hilfiger clothing pop-ups, food trucks and virtual stylists – soon welcomed Gigi's younger sister, Bella, to the runway, who showed off her athletic figure in a striped red and black skirt with a cropped yellow polo shirt and choker.

The Hadid sisters were joined by a bevvy of models on the night, including Devon Windsor, Joan Smalls, Hailey Baldwin and Stella Maxwell, who sported an array of the brand's 55 instantly-shoppable American-inspired designs.


Designs included '90-inspired low-slung metallic pants, patchwork denim, stars-and-stripe printed T-shirts, cactus-embellished handbags and cowboy boots.

Closing the show, Gigi – who modeled her second TommyXGigi collaboration collection on the night – wore a floaty, patchwork quilt-inspired maxi dress with a plunging neckline, teamed with the brand's iconic red, white, and blue-hued sandals.


Famous faces sitting on the front row included the likes of stylist Rachel Zoe, Kris Jenner, Sofia Richie, Cindy Crawford's children, Kaia and Presley Gerber, Lewis Hamilton, Lucky Blue Smith and Lady Gaga – days after her career-defining performance at the 51st Super Bowl halftime show.

The songstress was spotted wearing sequined hot pants, and a matching corset top, paired with and fishnets and later hugged fashion designer, Tommy Hilfiger, at the end of the show as he walked down the runway with Gigi.

Moments later, the 21-year-old model was presented with a bunch of yellow flowers by her brother, Anwar, who came onto the runway to give her a bouquet and kiss.

The night was clearly a family affair for the Hadids, with Gigi's father Mohamed and step-father David Foster proudly sitting in the audience to cheer on their daughters.

Following the show, Bella posted a picture to Instagram to congratulate her older sister on such a fantastic show.

She captioned the image: 'I'm so proud of you and all of your accomplishments sister, another incredible collection and the most EPIC show I have ever seen.You shut down Venice beach...!!!! There is not a day that goes by that you don't fully & completely amaze me! I love you so much!'


As the sun set on Venice Pier, Grammy-winner Fergie took to the stage to perform to an estimated 3,000 spectators with hit songs such as her 2007 chart-topper 'Glamorous', serving as an appropriate served as appropriate soundtrack for the night's high-profile, celebrity-filled and flawless models.

Following the hit show, Kristen Stewart was spotted congratulating her rumored girlfriend, model Stella Maxwell, who walked in the show in striped-patchwork denim trousers and a cropped red polo shirt, almost a week after her SNL appearance last weekend, where she referred to herself as 'so gay' in her opening monologue.

Can all fashion shows be this fun, please?
