But Gigi’s modeling career goes back further than her famous family. She began modeling for Guess at age two.
In 2011, Gigi signed with IMG Models and her career took off. By 2012, she was named the face of Guess.
And still often appears in the brand’s campaigns, posting this in January:”Sneak peek, me n my custom denim! New @GUESS campaign coming out this month. Keep an eye out – so excited for you to see the new images as they’re released! Going on 15 years as a Guess Girl, this may be my favorite campaign yet! Thank you @paulmarciano for always supporting me and my career, so much love for you and the whole team.”
In 2014, Gigi made her New York Fashion Week debut walking the catwalk in the Desigual show in February.
That same month, she appeared on the coveted cover of Carine Roitfeld’s “CR Fashion Book.”
Also in 2014, Gigi made her Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue debut as a “rookie” model.
This year, she was one of 16 top models featured in the annual issue.
And she’s already BFF with her fellow SI models, like Lily Aldridge.
In January, she was named the newest face of Maybelline, the number one cosmetics brand in the world, which counts models likeChristy Turlington and Jourdan Dunn among other spokeswomen.Maybelline
