Gigi Hadid marks return to runway post baby Khai with red hair, blue lids
Victoria's Secret angel Gigi Hadid and musician partner Zayn Malik welcomed their daughter Khai around six months ago and now the 25-year-old supermodel made her much-awaited, first major public appearance on the Versace runway post her daughter's birth. And always making headlines for her stunning looks and ensembles, Gigi made sure her comeback would made headlines as she decided to switch her usual luscious gold locks for a deep red, straight hair look on the runway. Gigi Hadid returned to the runway to walk in Versace's latest fashion show. Gigi took to her Instagram to share how grateful she was to be able to return to the runway, writing in the caption, "Opening and closing Versace is always an honour and was the best come'back'. Mostly just lucky to be healthy, working, and in a safe/tested environment to hug so many I’ve missed like family this past year. thank you to everyone who made this possible, especially my Italian Taurus queen Donatella Versace always and forever, and grazie for the major moments sweet Gordon von Steiner. "
Fans, who missed her alluring presence at the fashion shows cannot stop gushing over the model who looked absolutely stunning in a sheer, self patterned, full-sleeved, floor-length black gown under which she wore matching sheer pants. The model made a fiery return to the runway, as she debuted straight, red hair with her look for the Versace Fall-Winter 2021 Fashion Show, which aired on the company's social media platforms on March 5, Friday. Gigi had her long hair secured under a black head piece that was kept in place with two golden clips, the new mother sported aqua blue eye shadow on her lids and nude glossy lips to complete her high fashion look for her first major appearance since welcoming her first baby, daughter Khai.
Since giving birth to baby Khai with her boyfriend Zayn Malik in September, Gigi has steadily returned to work. However, Gigi's dear kinship with Donatella Versace, made her runway rebound extra special. Also at the runway show was Gigi's younger sister Bella, who also walked the runway alongside her sister.
Shortly after Khai's birth, news reports revealed that Gigi and Zayn planned to stay at her mom Yolanda Hadid's Pennsylvania farm for the foreseeable future. The family of three also considers New York City a home base, and over the holiday season Khai got to experience what Gigi described as her 'first snow." Gigi and the former 'One Direction' member Zayn, who first sparked romance rumours in 2015, reunited in late 2019 after breaking up earlier in the year. In April 2020, reports surfaced that the couple was expecting their first child together-which Gigi later confirmed to Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show'. "Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we're very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well wishes and support," she had shared.
