Mama is hitting the runway!

Gigi Hadid walked the catwalk for the first time since giving birth to her baby girl six months ago.

The supermodel traded in her golden locks for red, straight hair as she made a surprise appearance in Versace’s fall/winter 2021 fashion show.

She also donned a sheer, long-sleeve black gown and chunky boots. She finished off the look with blue eyeliner. Her second look included a printed mini-dress and tights.

According to the Italian label, the show drew inspiration from the Greca motif and was a set up as a “dynamic and immersive 3D maze that feels like you can step right into it." It streamed live on Friday amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hadid celebrated her return on Instagram.

“opening & closing @versace is always an honor and was the best come’back.’ ⚡️🌶 mostly just lucky to be healthy, working, and in a safe/tested environment to hug so many I’ve missed like family this past year. thank you to everyone who made this possible, especially my Italian Taurus queen @donatella_versace always & forever 🧡🔑 & grazie for the major moments sweet @gvsgvs,” she captioned snapshots from the show and behind-the-scenes.

The new mom's sister and fellow model, Bella Hadid, rocked the runway by her side and debuted three looks.

The 25-year-old seems to be getting back in the swing of things. In addition to strutting her stuff on the runway, she also graced the cover of Vogue Magazine's March issue, in which she shared her natural birth experience.

"There definitely was a point where I was like, I wonder what it would be like with an epidural, how it would be different. My midwife looked at me and was like, 'You're doing it. No one can help you. You're past the point of the epidural anyway, so you'd be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed,” she recalled.

Gigi welcomed Khai Hadid Malik in September with former One Direction crooner Zayn Malik.
