Born in LA, the daughter of Dutch model Yolanda Foster and Palestinian architect Mohamed uk.millybridal.org wedding dresses, Gigi grew up in front of the camera as mother Yolanda appears on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Like her BFF Kendall, Gigi turned her reality beginnings into bonafide stardom with 8.6million followers on Instagram and a legion of fans wanting to know her every move.
Starting her modelling career in 2011, Gigi first broke onto the scene as a Guess girl, with her laidback style perfectly encapsulating the brand. With flowing blonde locks and a sun-kissed tan, the young model’s breeziness to dressing made a mark, leading her to land a spread in Sport’s Illustrated annual swimsuit issue in 2014.

As more and more campaigns and covers came Gigi’s way, she showed her model prowess, rocking double denim and plunging neck lines on the red carpet.
