Top model Gigi Hadid takes the cover story of American Elle Magazine‘s March 2019 edition captured by fashion photographer Chris Colls. In charge of styling was Ilona Hamer, with beauty from hair stylist Ward at the Wall Group, makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi and manicurist Julie Kandalec, both with Bryan Bantry Agency. Creative direction by Stephen Gan.
“There are different levels of crazy—adventure excites me, and I’ve done a lot of adventurous things in my life. But I’m a daredevil, not an idiot. I know my limits. Outside my comfort zone is usually when I don’t connect with the creative team on something—things that might offend other people. That’s something that I have been misunderstood about in my career in the past. When I was young, and I knew in my heart that it wasn’t a creative thing I should be going for, I would try to reach out to people on set, but maybe they weren’t the right ones to talk to. As I’ve gotten more successful, people listen to me more. I have more confidence to know when I think something is wrong and stand up for that.” – Gigi for Elle US, on taking risk in her job.
