Gigi Hadid recently renovated her 5.82-million-dollar Manhattan apartment
Comedian Cait Raft gave a step-by-step analysis of Hadid’s choices for her apartment
“The thing that first caught my eye was the rainbow pasta cabinet doors. It haunts me. There’s something so completely wrong about it. It’s like a college dorm cafeteria from 2002. It’s such a boldly wrong design choice that I almost respect it. It’s like she had the option between black and white cabinets and she said, ‘No, give me rainbow pasta.’ Maybe she’s a genius,” Cait told us about what stood out for her the most in Hadid’s apartment.
In the celeb expert’s opinion, the design choices that Hadid made indicate that she’s a free spirit. “I’m sure there were a ton of people who tried to talk her out of the billiard ball countertop basket or the mismatched set of living room skis but Gigi held her own. I like it when a young woman isn’t afraid to go boldly in the direction of her dreams. Even if those dreams end up manifesting in the form of a bad college-dorm-with-an-unlimited-budget design aesthetic,” Cait said.
But what would she change in Hadid’s apartment if she could alter anything? Well, Cait had some ideas. “I would encourage Gigi to double down on her chosen aesthetic. I’d say, ‘Go full TGIFridays with it.’ Let’s nail some novelty license plates to the wall. Let’s taxidermy a fish and cover it in glitter. I think she can’t just go halfway and put one giant pen in a corner. Let’s get a whole giant pen basket. A giant ruler, a giant protractor. Her bathroom is too tame compared to the rest of the house, I’d add a cave or a waterfall in there. She has the money, she could make this a full-on theme park if she wanted to.”

Social media users were divided about what to think of Hadid’s apartment. Some people really disliked her design choices and sense of style while others thought that the apartment looks great.
According to Elle
and the New York Post
, Hadid owns two units in her building that she allegedly plans to combine. She bought her first 2-bedroom apartment for 3.97 million dollars in 2015 and she bought the second 3-bedroom unit for 5.82 million dollars in December 2018.
The apartment that Hadid showcased on her Instagram account is most likely the second one. It’s fancy through and through: it also has a private terrace with a barbecue grill, a fire pit, and even an outdoor fridge.
