Is there anything Gigi Hadid can’t do? With a runway CV studded with the premium fashion houses, the BFA named Model of the Year has an impressive portfolio of work already. Aside from playing muse to prestigious fashion brands such as Chanel, Versace, Tom Ford, and Fendi among many others, the debut Vogue Arabia cover star has also proved to be an accomplished designer with her Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi collaborations. And just when it seemed as if there’s nothing left for Hadid to conquer in the fashion sphere, the supermodel is trying her hand at jewelry design.

In celebration of Messika’s 10th anniversary, the Parisian jewelry label – which counts Beyoncé, Kristen Stewart, and Eva Longoria among its fans – has tapped Hadid as the first-ever brand ambassador. The Palestinian-American supermodel has appeared in the campaign images photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Additionally, she also worked closely with the maison’s designer Valérie Messika on a 12-piece capsule collection based on its highly-coveted Move range. Featuring 18K white, yellow, and rose gold earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets to be worn on their own or stacked together, The Messika by Gigi Hadid collection is on sale exclusively at the 259 Rue Saint-Honor Parisian flagship store from September 15 as well as on

Having collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger on three consecutive capsule collections, the 22-year-old’s previous design experience was apparent throughout the development process. “I loved working with Gigi. Her sense of detail and her discerning eye for fashion completely won me over,” says Messika. “Gigi is the embodiment of the Messika woman. She is spontaneous, sunny and bright.”
