She captioned the image: 'I've been doing this modeling thing for a minute and I'd just like to say, for the record, @gigihadid and @bellahadid are the REAL DEAL. #Supermodels are back and I never thought it was possible.'

The news comes after the pair's inimitable SS17 runway success, walking the likes of Marc Jacobs, Max Mara, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Moschino and Michael Kors, from New York to Milan. 

In the past two years, Gigi has appeared on several internationally-renowned magazines including ELLE and Sports Illustrated and launched her own collection with Tommy Hilfiger titled 'Tommy X GiGi'. She has also been dating singer Zayn Malik for over a year.
