The September covers are in and IT girl Gigi Hadid has bagged her self a golden cover for W magazine. If we didn’t love the 20 year old, LA gal enough, her interview sure has won us over– can she be our best pal too?
Gigi is labeled on the cover as “The World’s Most Connected Supermodel.” And with over a whopping 5 million Instagram followers, it’s easy to see why the 18 year old has earned her title.
But the cover line isn’t just a nod too Hadid’s substantial social media presence. With a supermodel mum Yolanda Foster, architect and real estate tycoon father, Mohamed Hadid and mega-successful songwriter and record-producer stepfather, David Foster. Gigi’s connections span a who’s who of Hollywood from The Kardashian’s to The Clinton’s.
With all that success behind her, you would be forgiven for thinking Gigi could be a stuck up little rich girl, but surprisingly she couldn’t come across more inspiring in the interview with W magazine.
Landing her first modeling gig for Baby Guess at the age of 2, Gigi’s says her career skyrocketed when she posed nude for that sexy Tom ford ad. “I’ve never been scared of being naked in pictures, but I wouldn’t do naked for naked’s sake. With Tom, it was an easy decision”
In the last year Gigi’s hasn’t only joined supermodel status, her social life is the talk of every tabloid as she hangs with a gaggle of Hollywood cool chicks such as Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift, to name a few. How does Gigi feel about been talk of the town? “Supposedly, Kendall and I are fighting over Lewis,” – Kendall is rumored to be dating Lewis Hamilton.
“I have to read the news to find out what’s happening in my life.”
But with the success most girls could only dream off, we just love how Gigi stays so grounded “Other models get overwhelmed by the parties and nightlife. With me, it will be baking. And that’s okay. It keeps things from going to your head.”
Our favorite quote from the interview has to be; “My mentality has always been, If I’m not the best at something, then I might as well be the best at something else.” – We couldn’t agree more Miss Hadid!
