SURE, WE'RE a good five days removed from 2014 by now, but you know us—we have a soft spot for the past; and so we march on on with our Rookies who Rocked 2014. Today we are paying tribute to the wonderfully ubiquitous Gigi Hadid.
2014 in Gigi's words:
My holy s*** moment: Meeting Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour at the same time at my fitting for the Chanel show in Paris
Best thing I ate: Truffle pasta and Kobe beef at Olivier in Lisbon, Portugal
More from SwimLife
Best movie I saw: The Fault in Our Stars
Best book I read: Letters To The Men I Have Loved by Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmol
Best song I discovered: Free Falling (John Mayer) Tropical Mojito Remix by Matoma & Nelsaan
Something I crossed off my bucket list: sky diving in Dubai!
Countries visited: Spain, Italy, England, France, Seychelles, UAE, Mexico, Portugal, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Anguilla, Barbados . . . sorry to any I forgot, I loved you all!
My New Year's resolution: Help as many people as I can through charities, or just on an every day smaller scale
Estimated percentage of my year spent on a plane: 51%
Here's what we loved about the 19 (!!!)-year-old's breakout year:
It's quite possible she hasn't taken a day off since then, conquering first our 2014 Launch Week...
