Gigi Hadid showcases lean legs in cutoff black denim shorts while out with her girls in NYC
Gigi Hadid recently announced she will be adding fashion designer to her resume with her upcoming clothing line Guest In Residence.
In fact, the top model has been keeping a low profile as of late so she can focus on getting ready for the big launch.
But come the weekend, the catwalk queen decided to press pause so she could spend time with her gal pals in her adopted hometown of New York City.
Out and about: Gigi Hadid, 27, headed out with a few of her gal pals for an afternoon outing in her adopted hometown of New York City on Saturday
Hadid, 27, was seen strolling along one of the many bustling streets in cutoff black denim shorts and a matching crop top that showcased her toned midriff.
She also donned a pair of brown sandals for their afternoon excursion, and had her long blonde tresses pulled back into a tight ponytail.
The fashionista also carried a small stylish purse, and accessorized with some very cool sunglasses, as the sun glared down and the temperature topped off at 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

It appears Instagram star Leah McCarthy, 28, and photographer Alana O’Herlihy, 27, were two of the ladies out with the supermodel.
Hadid took to her Instagram page last week and teased that she’s been working on Guest In Residence.
‘Been workin on something …. with love, @guestinresidence,’ she wrote in the caption, along with a series of behind-the-scene snaps of her team putting the finishing touches on the initial collections.

She also updated her Instagram bio, adding, ‘founder, creative director @guestinresidence.’
According to W Magazine, Hadid isn’t looking to rewrite trends with her brand, but rather, the emphasis seems to be on colorful and quality takes on basics.
In April, older sister of top model Bella Hadid announced that she was teaming up with her childhood friend and founder of Frankies Bikinis, Francesca Aiello, for an all new swimwear collection, according to People.
Along with her career as a model and now fashion designer and entrepreneur, Hadid also plays the role of single mom to her daughter Khai, who turns two-years-old in September, with whom she shares with ex-partner and singer Zayn Malik.
