Despite her relaxed ensemble, the 27-year-old catwalk star had business to attend to as she headed to the Tom Ford fashion show in the city.
Back to work: Gigi Hadid, 27, was spotted heading out to the Tom Ford show in New York City on Wednesday, after DailyMail.com exclusively obtained photos of her getting close to Leonardo DiCaprio earlier this week
Gigi favored a nearly all-black outfit built around a cool black leather jacket with short but wide peaked lapels.
She wore it over a soft-looking gray button-up shirt with only two buttons fastened to revealed her toned midriff.
The catwalk star also had on an intriguing set of charcoal cargo jeans with thick pockets running nearly to the slightly worn hems.
She added a rugged set of black boots to match her clothes, and she carried a boxy black handbag as she hit the street.
After weeks of speculation about a blossoming romance between Leonardo DiCaprio, 47, and Gigi Hadid, 27, DailyMail.com published the exclusive first pictures of the pair enjoying a night out together in New York City on Monday night

Gigi livened up her ensemble with her navel-length platinum blond hair, which was prominently glimpsed in her recent photos with Leo.
She kept a low profile as she headed out by covering up with a slim set of tan-framed sunglasses.
Gigi was spotted in photos exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com earlier this week as she leaned in toward Leonardo DiCaprio at a party at Casa Cipriani thrown by two of his friends.
Following the leaking of the new pictures, a source close to to the couple said while they are dating, they are ‘taking it slow,’ according to Page Six.
The source went on to say that the couple have been out together just the two of them as well as hanging out in groups with the pair not calling themselves ‘exclusive’ yet.
The person added: ‘[DiCaprio] is not someone who is in-and-out of relationships. He doesn’t jump around hooking up. They are taking it slow.’

Although DiCaprio appears to have set his sights on Gigi, an insider told E! News on Tuesday that he is ‘enjoying being single,’ and the two are ‘not exclusive.’
A source close to the model also claimed to the publication that ‘neither of them want a relationship’ at the moment.
‘Gigi and Leo have hung out multiple times and are into each other. Gigi thinks he’s a really cool guy,’ they said. ‘Majority of their hangouts have stemmed from being in the same social circles at various parties.’
The pairing was shocking considering that DiCaprio has never publicly dated a woman older than 25, though Gigi isn’t much older than that at 27.
However, he also does not appear to have ever dated a woman with a child, and Gigi shares her two-year-old daughter Khai with her former partner Zayn Malik of One Direction fame.
She gave birth to the child in September 2020, and she split from the singer in October in the wake of an altercation he had with her mother Yolanda Hadid.

He alleged shoved her against a dresser and shouted profanities at her at a Pennsylvania home where he and Gigi had been raising their daughter, which led him to be charged with four criminal counts of harassment, all of which he pleaded guilty to.
The singer was subsequently sentence to 360 days of community service — with 90 days for each charge — and he was also required to take anger management classes and attend an anti-domestic violence program.
The two separated shortly after his alleged assault of Yolanda, but they have continued to coparent their daughter, and Zayn even visits Gigi and Khai at the Pennsylvania home sometimes.
During the party with Leo, he could be seen getting close and placing his hands on her shoulders, and at another point they appeared to clasp hands.
The Oscar winner also leaned in close to her ear as he tried to talk over the din of the celebrity-filled party.
The actor and climate activist’s reported romance with Gigi comes following reports in recent days that he has been pursuing her.
However, earlier a source told Us Weekly last week that DiCaprio had ‘his sights set on Gigi,’ but ‘she doesn’t want to be romantic with [him] right now.’
Having a laugh: Leonardo’s dating patterns once again became a source of mockery for the actor after he and Camila Morrone split this summer shortly after she turned 25. Gigi, 27, appears to be the first woman he has publicly dated over 25
An eyewitness first revealed to Us Weekly that DiCaprio and Gigi had been seen together at the party in Soho, which served as an afterparty during New York Fashion Week.
The party was reportedly filled with celebrities, including Venus Williams, Irina Shayk (who walked with Gigi at the Vogue World: New York show on Monday), Carmelo Anthony and Ben Simmons.
Following the revelation that DiCaprio may have broken his own dating rule, iconic singer Dionne Warwick took to her equally iconic Twitter page to tell the Titanic star: ‘I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprio’s 25 year rule. His loss. You don’t know what you’re missing.’
His dating patterns once again became a source of mockery for the actor after he and the model-turned-actress Camila Morrone split this summer after more than four years together.
The Daisy Jones And The Six actress had turned 25 in June, and the two reportedly split sometime prior to the news breaking, which led to numerous jokes on social media about Leo’s tendency to split from his girlfriends as they approach that dreaded number.
The former couple had taken the big step of moving in together, but Camila was seen moving into a new apartment in Malibu afterward.
