Gigi Hadid's stylist 'begs' her to push her style

Gigi Hadid's stylist "begs" her to push her style.

The 21-year-old supermodel - who signed with IMG Models in 2011 - has admitted she "needs" her personal stylist Monica Rose to "push" her fashion sense, despite being immersed in the fashion industry, which has led her to discover a new found love for chokers.

Speaking to Refinery29 online about partnering with Monica, the blonde beauty said: "We're really collaborative. I think that's why we get along so well. She'll pick things and beg me to put them on. Sometimes, they're amazing! That's why you need a stylist when you're in fashion - people ask why I have a stylist; it's because you need someone to push you in that way. Sometimes, she pushes me and it works. Sometimes, she pushes me and we just have a really good laugh about it.

"She probably turned me on to chokers a while ago. She put me in a choker before it was a thing, so go Monica Rose!"

Gigi - who is currently dating soloist Zayn Malik and featured in his music video 'Pillow Talk' - has revealed she doesn't like shopping because of her work, which sees her make regular outfit changes for catwalks and photo shoots.

The Evian spokesperson explained: "Honestly, I'm not a big shopper. I guess it's because it's my job to try things on.

"I love window shopping and I love shopping without having to go to the dressing room or take what I'm wearing off. That's why I love glasses and bags. I buy a lot of [those], because I don't try them on.

"I'd much rather go into Topshop [and buy something], go home, try it on, and then return it than stand in line for three hours."

Meanwhile, Gigi, who has a clothing line with Tommy Hilfiger, has revealed she designed her Met Gala dress to fit with the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology theme.

Speaking previously she said: "I actually got to design my dress with the Tommy Hilfiger group, and we just finished designing my collaboration with them. It was more like I designed it, and I was so proud to wear it. I wanted to do sort of an inside-out corset, making it look like that was the metallic part."
