George Cortina styled Gigi Hadid for V Magazine’s first issue of 2022! For the Spring 2022 cover story, fearless Gigi Hadid does her own stunts once again—flashback to the Fall Preview 2018 cover, where the supermodel rode a custom Fendi jetski and Philipp Plein ATV. Flying high above photographer Mario Sorrenti, Gigi swings effortlessly on a trapeze wearing skin-tight bodysuits by Saint Laurent and Burberry by Ricardo Tischi. Gigi also wears a lacy Louis Vuitton dress and form-fitting Coperni while striking poses in-studio on a trapeze swing and hoops. Honey created a sharp monochromatic nail look that stands out boldly in the black and white photos. George Cortina stated he initially envisioned a full-rhinestone manicure for Gigi, but Sorrenti convinced the team to stay with a bold black manicure.
As a continuation of “Fearless Gigi”, the cover star speaks with the shoot’s creative team (the same team that worked on V114) about fearlessness in creativity and artistic processes. Read the full feature on V’s website!
