Last night was a HUGE one for Gigi Hadid: The 21-year-old-model not only strutted her stuff at her very first NYFW show, the show she walked in was actually the launch of a capsule collection she helped design: Tommy Hilfiger’s Tommy x Gigi.
Naturally, Gigi received major congrats from many of her closest pals, such as Taylor Swift and Martha Hunt (who were front-row singing along to Calvin Harris), her boyfriend Zayn Malik and her family.
One person noticeably absent from the loving (and public!) well wishes of Gigi’s nearest and dearest, however? BFF Kendall Jenner.
A model herself, Kendall had other engagements to attend to on Gigi’s big night: The Vogue September cover girl was instead on hand for Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates ICONS by Carine Roitfeld event, so her absence from the show was surely excusable.
Yet, contrary to the duo’s Victoria’s Secret catwalk days of yore, which saw both girls posting plenty of kudos and shared hugs, Kendall posted not so much as a “congrats”to Gigi last night, leaving us to wonder: the hell’s up with that?
She certainly wasn’t too busy to post the above shot of herself and fellow model Hailey Baldwin (who also walked the Tommy runway) post-show, a fact that had us SERIOUSLY scratching our heads. In fact, come to think of it, we haven’t actually seen Kendall and Gig together in quite some time — since the MTV Movie Awards back in April!
While some may speculate that the rift has to do with Gigi’s new next-level closeness to Taylor Swift (who, you might recall, has been steady feuding with Kendall’s sister Kim and brother-in-law Kanye West for some time now) OK! reported back in April that tensions have actually been mounting due to the ladies’ men.
With Gigi back together with Zayn Malik and Kendall reportedly shacking up with Harry Styles (yes, the same Harry Styles that infamously spawned so many of Taylor Swift’s breakup hits), Kendall apparently had something to say about Zayn publically bashing his former 1D bandmate Harry, and Gigi wasn’t having it.
While it’s entirely possible that Kendall wished her former inseparable buddy congratulations in private, considering the fact that girl even documents being stuck in an elevator for 10 minutes, we’re thinking whatever rift went down over the guys is still ongoing.
Do you think Kendall’s lack of congrats was a major snub? Share over @BritandCo!
