One supermodel is proving to be a true jack of all trades. Gigi Hadid made her acting debut in a short film for V Magazine , showing the world that she really can do it all. The 20-year-old beauty, who was recently named the new face of Topshop, has already conquered the fashion world, so it was only a matter of time before she dabbled into acting too. She seems to be taking a page out of Cara Delevingne's book, who recently hit the big screen as Margo in Paper Towns.
The film titled "Those Wrecked By Success" is centered around the concept of the mundane empty lifestyles of Hollywood's elite, specifically an Oscar-winning actress, played by Hadid. It opens with an incessantly ringing phone as the model is seen just waking from her sleep, dressed in a luxe silk pink robe. She slowly makes her way over to the kitchen to boil some water as her acceptance speech plays in the background. I've got to say, the whistling sound of the kettle combined with her monotone voice is pretty eerie and totally reminiscent of a horror flick, in the coolest way possible.
The rest of the film follows the actress through her monotonous day, which includes picking up the paper (with her very own face on it), taking a lone dip in the pool, and staring into the distance past the Hollywood sign. It looks quite lonely, actually.
Hadid looks stunning throughout the film, obviously, donning blush lace lingerie, a voluminous blowout, and barely there makeup. She totally nailed the brooding actress role.
Check out some of the highlights from the video.
