During her touching tribute to her model pal, Williams, 36, said, “Gigi, you are one of the few people on this planet I would leave my baby for — for one night — but for you, it shows how much you mean to me. And I want you to imagine the effect you have on the world,” Williams told the audience. “Since I’ve known Gigi Hadid since she was a kid, she’s always been a woman with goals. Not only beautiful on the outside but totally stunning most importantly on the inside. She understands in order to be the best you have to think like you are the best. You have to work the hardest and you have to make sacrifices.”

Hadid looked every inch the golden girl herself in her gorgeous embroidered Zuhair Murad couture gown with flowing sleeves that was first seen on the runway during their Fall 2016 show. Since friends get style inspiration from each other, Stylish wouldn’t be surprised if Williams decided to wear her Versace dress after seeing her fashionable friend rock it on the runway.
