Hadid, who is a mainstay on the Dior catwalk, was selected as the face and ambassador for the Parisian label’s beauty range in 2016, joining the likes of Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence, who have also been cast in Dior beauty adverts. Her debut campaign for the brand dropped a year later. 

“I shot my first Dior mascara campaign almost four years ago and here we are with (I think) our third mascara together and maybe 10th campaign overall (sic),” Hadid captioned the images on Instagram, adding “feeling beyond blessed today and really just had to express my gratitude. Thank you to my @diormakeup family.”

She also gave a shout out to Peter Philips, the creative director of Christian Dior Makeup, thanking him for being the “best teacher, friend and work partner.”

Indeed, the younger sister of Gigi Hadid hasn’t let the global health pandemic slow her down. In fact, she’s been as busy as ever, in spite of the restrictions brought about by the coronavirus. 

In addition to her latest work with Burberry and Dior, the California-bred model also recently appeared in a fashion campaign for fine jewelry label Bulgari, shot by Brooklyn-based photographer Tyler Mitchell, as well as the new Michael Kors Summer 2020 advert.

She was also the star of Calvin Klein’s Spring 2020 campaign for its CK Swim range. Lensed by English fashion photographer Charlotte Wales, the advert depicts Hadid posing inside a turquoise swimming pool, against the backdrop of a white-washed wall, wearing pieces from the brand’s new swimwear collection.

And who can forget the now-iconic Jacquemus Spring 2020 campaign that was shot entirely via Facetime? 

When Hadid wasn’t fronting campaigns for prestigious fashion houses, she was appearing on the pages of renowned publications including Vogue Italia and British Vogue. 

 


Gerard Butler talks family and high-octane action films

Gerard Butler talks family and high-octane action films

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood’s latest disaster movie offering, “Greenland,” sees humanity threatened by a comet on a collision course with Earth — Arab News sat down with stars Gerard Butler and Morena Baccarin to find out more about the high-octane film.

While many disaster movies focus on experts in big-picture attempts to stop the disaster, “Greenland” keeps the stakes personal by following the Garrity family as they journey to find shelter before it’s too late.

“This story is so relatable because this guy, he’s not a Secret Service agent. He’s not a superhero,” Butler said of his character, John Garrity. “He’s just a dad and he’s not even a perfect dad.”

As meteorites decimate cities and people give in to panic, the estranged Garrity family grows closer, mirroring Butler’s real-life relationships with his parents, who despite having not seen him in months due to COVID-19 restrictions, are still just as doting as ever. 

“It’s very sweet that they still care and you’re still their little boy,” Butler said, adding that he mined his relationship with his parents for insight on how to play a caring father. “That definitely helped me in the role, to play that father who will do anything in these trying times to try and protect his family in the midst of this craziness.”

The film was directed by Ric Roman Waugh. Supplied

And while their characters were growing closer, the actors formed a tight knit group as well. Co-star Morena Baccarin told Arab News that she coached and comforted the actor playing the family’s young son — Roger Dale Flloyd — and that she and Butler became good friends on set.

“There are days where you’re just so tired and you’re not in the mood or you don’t want to put yourself through the ringer emotionally,” Baccarin — who plays estranged wife Allison Garrity — said, adding “we just could check in with each other and be there for each other and that was really nice.”

Directed by Ric Roman Waugh, the film has faced repeated delays in the US, but has already hit the big screens in some international markets — including Saudi Arabia and the UAE — where COVID-19 regulations have been amended.
