Celebutante Gigi Hadid was spotted checking out the last unsold condo in Annabelle Selldorf’s 10 Bond Street back in January with flame Zayn Malik, setting off rumors that the celebrity couple was eyeing the cushy $6.495 million digs. Those rumors eventually quieted, and then fizzled out completely in May when the apartment closed to a Jeffrey Sun—but the Victoria’s Secret model might have pulled one over on us all.
An impudent Instagram posted two weeks ago by rally racing driver Alex Roy and spotted by 6sqft claims that a group of paparazzis were waiting out front of the Annabelle Selldorf-designed ode to terracotta to photograph Hadid. Another photo captured by Getty and posted across the internet appears to show Hadid and pal Kendell Jenner leaving the building today. The artsy lighting of the boutique building’s lobby—captured by Curbed photographer Will Femia on a former building tour and viewable in today’s image—betrays the photo’s location.
LLNYC points out that while the $6.495 million apartment 3E did not sell to Hadid, just two days after she was spotted leaving the building another, less expensive condo at 10 Bond closed to a G Angel LLC and Y Secret LLC. A secret this is not: Gigi with a G is a Victoria’s Secret angel. Her mother’s name, Yolanda, begins with a Y. (Yes, we’re talkin’ Yolanda Hadid of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame.) And that all but accounts for the LLC names.
It looks like Hadid is the buyer of the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom apartment 2E. The 2,085-square-foot condo sold for $3.971 million after first hitting the market for $4.675 million in April 2014. Like the apartment Hadid allegedly eyed up in January, 2E comes with ten-foot, ten-inch ceilings, casement windows with automated shades, and a kitchen with lacquered Italian millwork and marble slab countertops.
Hadid’s real estate hunt started when the Real Housewives scion’s Bowery Street building was broached by a stalker. Although a rep for Hadid said at the time that the listing was unrelated, Hadid high-tailed it out of 250 Bowery just six months after listing the pad for $2.5 million.
