When scrolling through my Instagram feed this morning, the last thing I expected to see was Gigi Hadid with a long bob haircut and fringe—I mean, hello... transformation or what?! Alas, she (read: said hairstyle) has arrived and is welcomed via a new campaign for luxury fashion brand, Miu Miu.

In an exclusive interview with WWD released today [1 June, 2023], Miu Miu's CEO, Benedetta Petruzzo discussed the current brand heat, its signature matelassé fabric and the inspiration behind photographer, Steven Meisel's snaps of Hadid—aka, the model fronting the entirety of the brand's recent collection.


As shown, Hadid's long (and almost hip-skimming) blonde locks are no more and instead, have been chopped to just below shoulder-length. This style is often referred to as a 'lob' chop, aka a 'long bob'. And to add even more drama to her already shocking look, a piecey fringe has been cut in, framing the model's face ever so effortlessly.

In terms of the colour, Hadid is sporting her trademark icy tone with low-maintenance shadow roots. Did someone say root regrowth? Because we're totally behind this money-saving trend.

Now, having said all of that, it must be acknowledged that this 'do could, in fact, be a wig. *Pretends to be shocked*. After all, photoshoots and celebrity jobs as such are often shot and filmed months—if not years—in advance. So, a quick switcheroo is to be expected.

Nevertheless, wig or not, that doesn't take away from the beauty of Hadid's bob. Just bear the above in mind before doing an at-home hair scissors jobby, OK?
