Gigi Hadid Gives Emotional Speech at Variety's Power Of Women Event: 'Be a Voice for Someone' (Video)

Gigi Hadid flashes a grin while posing with sister Bella Hadid at Variety’s Power Of Women: New York event!

The models, ages 23 and 22, respectively, held hands at the event, presented by Lifetime, at Cipriani Midtown on Friday (April 5) in New York City.

Bella and Gigi rocked similar ensembles – Bella wore a brown top with matching pants, jacket, and see-through shoes, accessorizing with round silver earrings and styling her hair in an updo.

Gigi donned a light blue jumpsuit with a cape, matching snakeskin-print heels, and hoop earrings, styling her hair in a sleek ponytail.

They were also joined by Grown‑ish actress Yara Shahidi, who sported a striped suit and was all smiles while hanging out with Empire star and honoree Taraji P. Henson.

Gigi, who was also honored at the event, choked up during her inspiring speech. Watch it below! (See Taraji‘s speech here.)

Audi was a premiere sponsor of the event, and the official wine partner was JNSQ. Additional sponsors included Shea Moisture, iHeart Media, and Icelandic Glacial.

FYI: Gigi is wearing Emilia Wickstead. Yara is wearing Tory Burch.

    honored for what? being a nepotism model? she has a horrible voice.

  • MyName

    Her voice, bad or good, is a non issue. The problem is that this woman is paid to be painted up and walk around half naked which is not empowering to women.

  • Jane Ninke

    Its empowering as women because we have the choice to be a model and be half naked. Many women in other countries dont have the option

  • MyName

    It isn’t empowering to be objected. It’s the same message as in other nations yet in a different way.
