The 2016 iHeartRadio MMVAs are about to have their stage turned into a catwalk. Supermodel, style icon, social media queen and pop culture trailblazer Gigi Hadid has just been announced as this year’s iHeartRadio MMVA host!
The stunning and charismatic Hadid is no stranger to the annual award show. Gigi appeared as a presenter in 2015, ruling the red carpet in her custom designed all white ensemble.
Gigi’s connection to the annual award show doesn’t stop there. In 2015, she co-directed DNCE’s video for “Cake By The Ocean,” a band fronted by former iHeartRadio MMVA co-host Joe Jonas. Back in 2009, Joe co-hosted the show along with his brothers Kevin and Nick. On Sunday, June 19, Nick Jonas is set to return to the performer stage for a second year in a row.
In addition to directing, Hadid’s talents have also placed her in front of the camera for some of the biggest music videos of the past year, including Taylor Swift’s star-studded “Bad Blood,” Calvin Harris’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” and boyfriend Zayn’s “Pillowtalk.”
At only 21 years old, Hadid has already become one of the most sought-after models in the fashion industry, walking for Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Jean Paul Gautier and many more. In 2015, Gigi made her debut as an Angel during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Watch the 2016 iHeartRadio MMVAs hosted by Gigi Hadid and featuring performances from Alessia Cara, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Nick Jonas and more on Sunday, June 19!
