Gigi Hadid is really good at her modeling job. And it’s not because she knows how to take a fierce picture or has 24 million eyes on her Instagram profile. It’s because Miss Thing can hold her own next to a creepy mascot and look totally into it.

This morning Tommy Hilfiger tweeted out an image of the model at a Tokyo event for her collaboration with the label. In the photo, Hadid is standing next to a scary mascot version of herself, with a giant head, blond hair, and big blue eyes.
Design houses seem to be obsessed with mascots as of late. Back in February, Fendi’s front row was extra furry thanks to the two “Fendirumi” mascots that showed up to the affair. For Chanel’s Spring 2017 collection, a pair dressed as robots walked the runway.
Is this terrifying trend here to stay? Only time will tell. But in the meantime, we’ll be averting our eyes from these strange life-size puppets.
