In the video, Hadid stars as a boxer who strikes poses as well as she spars against her masked opponents in the ring. All the while, she’s wearing The Gigi Boot while she’s taking down the men who enter into battle with her.

Franco has so far directed numerous feature and short films since 2005. Some of these include two William Faulkner adaptations — “As I Lay Dying” and “The Sound and the Fury” — a documentary about the production process of “Saturday Night Live” entitled “Saturday Night” and “My Own Private River,” which uses footage from Gus Van Sant’s “My Own Private Idaho” recontextualized into a tribute for the late River Phoenix.
