Gigi Hadid rocks pixie hair in new Stuart Weitzman campaign

By hellofashion.com

Gigi Hadid surprised fans by rocking a faux pixie cut in Stuart Weitzman's latest campaign. The Los Angeles-born model is known for her chic personal style and long blonde hair, which she has dyed a range of warm hues over the last couple of months.

But there has been nothing subtle about her latest look, as in Weitzman's fall/winter 2017 advertising Gigi sports a short, choppy cut courtesy of a gamine-style hair piece.

"Gigi takes on a whole new look, capped in a fabulous Shay Ashual wig that obscures her famed tousled golden locks and will have people asking: did she or didn't she?" the brand said in a statement. "Gigi's stylish faux-pixie, inspired by Jean Seberg's character in the 1960's French movie classic Breathless, puts a chic and modern twist on her fourth consecutive Stuart Weitzman campaign."

In the marketing imagery, shot by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino in black and white, the 22-year-old poses in the stretch over-the-knee Tiemodel boot and the Cling ankle boot.

The two styles of boot are now available for sale and pre-order on the footwear and accessories brand's website, with the international advertising campaign to launch in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia.

Tomorrow. @stuartweitzman !!

Yet, the campaign isn't the first time Gigi has tried out short hair. On April Fools' Day this year she posted a photo on social media showing her with a cropped style.

While her followers were quick to praise her daring look, the model later confirmed that she had merely had her locks pinned back as a joke.

A whole crop of celebrities have been trying out the pixie trend of late, with the likes of Katy Perry and Zoe Kravitz sporting chic platinum blonde coifs.
