She has walked the runway for Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jeremy Scott, Chanel and other fashion brands. Gigi has 1.6 million followers on her Instagram account, @gigihadid. She shared a behind-the-scenes photo from her new Maybelline campaign on Instagram.

Gigi says in a statement, "Being a Maybelline New York spokesperson means more to me than anyone can imagine; it doesn't seem real! It's the most incredible feeling and is a dream come true. I feel so honored and humbled to be a part of the iconic brand I grew up with, and I am very excited by this opportunity."

Maybelline released a video where they asked Gigi eighteen quick questions. Gigi considers herself creative and her favorite emoji is the "little elephant." Her biggest pet peeve is "people chewing loudly." Take a look:
