Gigi Hadid proved she’s a street style superhero in a caped Emilia Wickstead jumpsuit at Variety‘s Power of Women event yesterday.

The 23-year-old wasn’t going to let the rain stop her from showcasing her latest ensemble, as the model made a pap pit-stop outside of the starry ceremony – twirling in front of the cameras.

The spring-ready jumpsuit was plucked from the London-based designer’s autumn/winter 19 collection and made its runway debut accessorised with a chestnut-hued belt and minimal pumps.

But Hadid put her own heroic spin on the number in co-ordinating snakeskin heels and super-sized hoop earrings.

Fellow model and younger sister, Bella Hadid, also gave a lesson in tonal dressing at the A-list event.

The 22-year-old channelled the seventies in a tan all-leather ensemble by Rosetta Getty with see-through vinyl shoes to finish.

At the awards night, honouree Gigi gave a moving speech about her difficult relationship with social media – opening up about how she recently discovered that Instagram can be used to empower those without a voice.

As an example, the Unicef ambassador spoke candidly about her recent trip to a refugee camp in Bangladesh.

“I feel resentment towards social media at times but as I documented my trip with Unicef, I understood the true value – someone is listening,” she said.

“We can get so stuck in our own heads and our own worlds can feel very overwhelming at times, but most of us have the true gift of identity, and the power to express ourselves, the power to speak out for those who cannot for themselves, and the power to uplift one another.”

In a final bid to encourage others to use social media for good, the supermodel added: “Be a voice for someone, support someone, encourage someone, tell someone how they inspire you.”
