Last night, Jimmy Fallon invited supermodel Gigi Hadid on The Tonight Show to talk about her mini-bag obsession, share cheeseburgers, and to officially announce the reopening of the New York Staple made up of childhood dreams FAO Schwarz.

In a partnership with Gigi, FAO Schwarz has enlisted the multi-faceted modern fashion mogul to revamp the brand's iconic toy solider uniform, taking the previous design and putting her own spin on it. Bloomingdales hosted an intimate gathering to celebrate the collaboration with, CEO of ThreeSixty Brands and owner of FAO Schwarz David Conn says, “Having Gigi Hadid design our toy soldier costumes is such an honor. She is an icon herself and when we heard she had a personal relationship with the brand, it was only natural to work with her on such an important part of FAO Schwarz.”

With plenty of fringe and light catching gleam, Hadid's take on the uniform explores the modern world of diversity and inclusion, adding elements like medals of honor and crafting a silhouette for a female, making it so that the toy soldier is something everyone and anyone can become.
