“We can have a very similar sense of humor as someone, and that’s why we’re their favorite model, or our personal style, off the runway, is why we’re their favorite.” – Gigi Hadid

“I love sports – I used to play volleyball really competitively…I went to Junior Olympic qualifiers, and I’ve ridden horses my whole life.” – Gigi Hadid

“No, I’m not the first or last model of my type in this industry. You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself – one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.” – Gigi Hadid

“People can see a picture of my body from the neck down and know who it is because of my beauty marks or whatever you call them, moles. I’ve always had them, and I’ve always loved them. Obviously you have to be careful with that; I get them checked regularly and make sure that they’re healthy.” – Gigi Hadid

“I’ve learned that if I only put my mind to one thing that I can get tunnel vision. Then I may not be as open to other opportunities because I’m so focused on one thing. I think what’s worked better for me personally is I have three goals every day: be nice, work hard, and make friends.” – Gigi Hadid

“I can eat healthy when I want to, and I can work out every single day, and I can have the body for a certain runway show if I need to, but that doesn’t mean that I’m doing it in an unhealthy way.” – Gigi Hadid

“I just started using this app called Wine and Dine. It’s like Instagram, but only for food. You post what you’re eating and follow your friends, and then you can say, ‘I wanna try that,’ and so when you go on your ‘wanna try’ list, it’ll tell you where it is.” – Gigi Hadid

“A lot of the time, we’re shooting summer campaigns in winter because they have to come out the next season. It’s the hardest to feel great in a bikini when it’s cold… so I appreciate a swimsuit shoot that’s in warm weather.” – Gigi Hadid

“I’m from Malibu, California. Once I tell people, they’re like, ‘Oh, of course you’re from Malibu; that makes sense.’ I guess I am your typical just-graduated-high-school-in-Malibu type of girl. Our school was just across from Zuma beach, and we all wore Lululemons and bathing suit tops to go to the grocery store – no makeup, no shoes.” – Gigi Hadid

“My makeup artist likes to define my brows with Maybelline Brow Drama. We brush up on the part closest to my nose and it’s straight after that. Then, I like to use the matte brown shades from Maybelline The Nudes Palette to shadow my eyes, but without it looking like I’m wearing much.” – Gigi Hadid

“In real life, I’m so goofy and super weird. I’m never mean, but people don’t see the weird side of me. Like, I’ll be dancing around. My best friends will always say that they wish others saw that side of me, when I’m doing a weird dance or weird faces or voices.” – Gigi Hadid

“I will be the first to say, when I started, I was the worst on the runway ever. I feel like I try to keep learning every time I step off a runway; I try to get better with each one. I hope that I’m getting better as I go – it takes a few seasons to get your Karlie Kloss walk on.” – Gigi Hadid

“My mom was a model. She met my dad when he was building the Ritz-Carlton in Colorado and she was modeling there. Although we were very blessed, my parents never wanted us to believe we didn’t have to work. They didn’t want us to think that our situation would get us through life.” – Gigi Hadid

“When I was young, I did Baby Guess and Guess Kids – Paul Marciano saw me when I was a baby and decided I was going to be his next whatever. After Guess Kids, my mom made me stop. She would not let me sign with an agency until I was 17 because she wanted me to be a normal kid and accept myself for who I was.” – Gigi Hadid

“I eat healthy when I can; I eat a burger when I want, and I work out. You have to live with the routine that keeps your body the healthiest, and that’s what I do – I don’t change it for a swimsuit shoot. You have to figure out what works with your body the best.” – Gigi Hadid

“I think that something photographers find about me is that I work really hard to make sure I know what they want before I start shooting.” – Gigi Hadid

“Everyone has a different body shape, so you kind of have to figure out not only what works best for your body type, but what also makes you feel confident.

“I’ve always said that I feel lucky to live in the era of social media and be a working model in this time. Back in the day, models were just another face. But social media has given people a voice and not just another face. Not only can you show the world your personality and stuff like that, but you can be a brand ambassador easily.” – Gigi Hadid

“I was discovered by Paul Marciano of Guess when I was actually, like, two years old. And so I started with Baby Guess; I did Guess Kids, and then I stopped because I was a really competitive horseback rider and a club volleyball player. I went to Junior Olympic qualifiers for volleyball. So, I kind of stopped modeling.” – Gigi Hadid

“High school is when I started to get my sense of fashion together. My queen was Candice Swanepoel, who is a friend of mine now, which is kind of funny, but in high school, I was obsessed.

“I know that the designers that have me in their shows have me for a reason, I know that the designers that don’t have me in their shows don’t have me for a reason, and I accept either way.” – Gigi Hadid

“My Pirelli calendar is hanging on the wall of my friend’s frat house, and he doesn’t know anything about fashion. That balance is what leads to big campaigns outside of fashion. But I never want to choose one or the other. Both commercial and high fashion are what make my job so interesting.” – Gigi Hadid

“I have more than 4 million followers on Instagram. All the companies I work for want me to guarantee how much I’ll post for them, but I’m not going to force my career onto the people who follow me. I refuse to do 40 Instagram posts about any campaign.” – Gigi Hadid

“My first week of second semester was during Fashion Week when my first editorials in ‘CR Fashion Book’ and ‘Sports Illustrated’ came out. It was crazy!” – Gigi Hadid

“My sister is my little star, and I’m excited for her and proud of her. With her, I’m protective, but also I don’t want to be that sister who’s really pushy and thinks they know everything and making her feel like she doesn’t know what she’s doing. I’m trying to be that cool older sister and not the mom, but it’s hard.” – Gigi Hadid

“I love St. Ives Apricot Scrub, and you can just get that at CVS – it’s so good, though; it’s my favorite! Usually, I only use that when I shower because if I don’t shower, I’m usually too tired to wash my face and just use Maybelline cleansing wipes. And then I use Chanel Hydra Beauty Lotion. That’s so good, I love it.” – Gigi Hadid

“I only box. It’s the only thing that keeps me sane. I can’t just go to the gym and run. I’d rather die. I played volleyball and rode horses my entire life, so just, like, moving to a city and having to go to the gym was just, like, so weird for me.” – Gigi Hadid

“The bigger fan base you have, the more companies will be attracted to you. And having a following, you can be so much more involved being a representative with the brand you’re working with.” – Gigi Hadid

“I just try to be in tune with my body. If I start to feel sick, I will try to catch it at the root. I don’t really let myself get to the point where it becomes a problem.

“When you’re two, three, four years old, it’s not really modeling. You run around, and they give you toys in a fun place, and they take pictures of you playing.” – Gigi Hadid

“I grew up on the beach, so I’m really comfortable in a bathing suit, playing volleyball, running around.” – Gigi Hadid

“I usually stalk fans because I think they’re really funny on Twitter. They don’t know it, but I’ll just go through their timelines, and if something is happening in the media, I always read fan accounts instead of the news because they have all the info and make the funniest jokes about it, so that’s how I get my gossip – by stalking fans.” – Gigi Hadid

“Even if I have no other makeup on, I always want a nude lip, and if I’m going to do a bright, I want it to be matte.” – Gigi Hadid

“I know this sounds weird, but I was into storyboarding when I was younger. I loved coming up with my own style through fashion blogs and magazines. But I’ve never liked trying things on. I don’t know why. It was more about making mood boards. I’ve loved fashion my whole life, but more the imagery of it than actually wearing it.” – Gigi Hadid

“I usually do my hair and makeup in 30 to 45 minutes, and if my hair is dirty, I’ll just put it in a bun or a ponytail. If it’s in a bun, I’ll part it down the middle and do a low bun with a couple of pieces in the front coming down.” – Gigi Hadid

“Honestly… I only get starstruck over chefs.” – Gigi Hadid

“I’ve learned very quickly to fall asleep wherever I can. I sleep in the car from event to event or show to show sometimes.” – Gigi Hadid

“When I was 11, I made truffle risotto for my family for Christmas dinner.” – Gigi Hadid

“You have to realize that everyone that you are working with is important. It doesn’t matter where you are starting from; you are always going to run back into those people, and they are going to talk, and that’s going to be the base of whether you get good opportunities or not.” – Gigi Hadid

“I box every day when I’m in New York.” – Gigi Hadid

“What people want to know is, OK, what’s after modeling? It’s not just OK anymore to model until you’re 25 and then stop and be a housewife.” – Gigi Hadid

“I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion; this is art. It can never stay the same. It’s 2015.” – Gigi Hadid

“It’s really about making opportunities for yourself and connecting with people on a more-than-normal level. That opens doors. You never know if the caterer’s brother is someone. You don’t know who someone is having dinner with that night. So being a nice person and touching people creates opportunity.” – Gigi Hadid

“My mentality has always been, If I’m not the best at something, then I might as well be the best at something else. I realized that I wasn’t going to be an Olympic volleyball player, but I knew I could model at that level.” – Gigi Hadid

“My biggest thing about being a role model is whatever I’m preaching, I’m practicing. If I’m telling people I’m boxing and then I’m eating a burger tonight, it’s because I am. I’m not cheating and eating a salad and then being like, ‘Yeah! Burgers are cool!'” – Gigi Hadid

“My mom always taught me to put toothpaste on pimples to dry them out at night. I do that all the time. I don’t use anything fancy when I get a pimple.

“As for middle school, I had a really horrible era of style. I’d only play basketball with the boys during lunch, so I went through a phase of only wearing Lakers uniforms to school – that was cute! And then I kind of went through the Puma phase that everyone went through with the sweatsuits, which turned into Juicy Couture sweatsuits.” – Gigi Hadid

“I went to almost all of the agencies in New York when I first visited. A lot of them wanted to sign me but also kind of indirectly were telling me that I needed to change in some way. Some directly told me that I wouldn’t be a model unless I changed the way that my body looked.” – Gigi Hadid

“I think it’s really important that I’m not the only model in the world that goes through personal problems. People forget that we’re human. We don’t get to call in sick. You have to go and put on a smile. Every single day is a first impression, so you can’t have a bummed-out day.” – Gigi Hadid

Gigi completed her look with a pair of bold Stella McCartney “Elyse” platforms, just visible under the long hemline of her pants.

These sophisticated and spunky shoes are from the designer’s latest collection and feature an Oxford-style design with cut-out details at the sides and heels.

Gigi’s three-inch platforms are fashionable and environmentally friendly and made from Eco-conscious materials like a sustainable wood platform and a cruelty-free non-leather mix.

They combine professionalism and boldness with lace-up ties and chunky white saw-edged rubber soles.
