Tan France host of Next in Fashion

Netflix’s fashion competition series Next in Fashion is back this week, and returning with it is the always delightful and chic Tan France. Joining him this time is a new co-host: supermodel extraordinaire Gigi Hadid.

For fans of the show, its renewal came as a delightful surprise because the series, which originally aired in 2020, was canceled despite being excellent. But baby, we live in the era of the reboot and now the fashion competition series is back, bigger and better than ever!

For those unfamiliar with the premise, France and Hadid play host to a group of fashion designers whose talents and aesthetics are at the forefront of what’s “next in fashion.” Each week, these designers compete in challenges to show off their skills, hoping to walk away with a prize of $200,000 and the chance to share their designs with the world.

France and Hadid are joined on the judging panel by plenty of iconic and familiar faces including Hailey Bieber, Emma Chamberlain, Bella Hadid, and true fashion royalty, Donatella Versace.

While all these elements add to the excitement and drama of the series, the real heart of the show are the designers, many of whom have overcome great barriers to be there — and, of course, many of them are queer and trans, and here to share their stories. It’s an aspect of the show that’s especially powerful to France who opened up to PRIDE about how his career has become a platform for humanizing people from all walks of life, including the LGBTQ+ community.

France shares how meaningful the series is to him personally, talks about his beautiful friendship with Hadid, and offers some fashion advice for people trying to take their fashion to the… wait for

Gigi Hadid Just Soft-Launched Her Own Line of Knitwear, Guest in Residence

Remember when everyone started knitting Harry Styles cardigans on TikTok? Well, it looks like Gigi Hadid is taking her quarantine hobby to the next level.

On August 4, the model shared a peek at her latest business venture in an Instagram dump. “Been workin on something …. with love, @guestinresidence 💛🧵 :),” she captioned the series of photos, which include Hadid looking over color swatches and plenty of cozy-looking knitwear. (In unrelated news, the latest Y2K trend coming back seems to be the puka-shell-necklace trend, as demonstrated by Hadid’s elevated pearl version in slide eight.)

Of course, many of Hadid’s 75.1 million followers, including her famous friends, are excited to see what the model is cooking up with Guest in Residence. “So excited about this 😍,” Hailey Bieber commented, while Laura Brown dubbed Hadid “The Mayor of Snuggletown.”

As of August 4, the Guest in Residence Instagram account has yet to post and the bio simply reads, “KNITTERS,” with a link to a website that doesn’t give fans much to go on. So far, there is only a logo and the option to subscribe to a newsletter.

Gigi Hadid also shared a sneak peek at the line on Instagram Stories. In the photo, which tagged the brand, Hadid is wearing a purple vest and yet another pearl and puka-shell necklace.
