Gigi Hadid Rocks an '80s Mullet on 'W' Magazine's Holiday Issue Cover
Channeling Debbie Harry.
Having recently walked runways for Versace and Victoria’s Secret, Gigi Hadid is rounding out the year by gracing the cover of W magazine in a way we’ve never seen her before. On the front page, and accompanying editorial spread, the model trades her signature chic, wavy hair for a dramatic bleach blonde and black layered mullet, channelling legendary Blondie front-woman, Debbie Harry.
In the editorial, Hadid’s sartorial style is heavily inspired by ’80s glam rock with a luxurious yet contemporary twist, fusing together Chanel and Gucci with show-stopping metallic pieces by Isabel Marant. The spread is complemented by an interview in which Hadid shares everything from her dream super-power (teleportation) and the only person to leave her starstruck (Kobe Bryant). She also opened up about her career, and her hopes to build a longstanding legacy, stating:
“I’ve always studied how models made pictures. It’s always been important to me to make a picture better. I can look at a shot and see where I fit into it, what I can add to the picture. I don’t want to be just another person on the page. I want people to see the new picture with me and one day remember it the way we remember these pictures of Debbie Harry.”
