The 2017 show is set to take place in Shanghai this year. We do not know why Gigi dropped out last minute, perhaps it could be because of scheduling conflicts or the aforementioned visa issue. Either way, the 22-year-old stays busy with a recent appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ as well as the new launch of her Stuart Weitzman collaboration.
