Gigi Hadid is covered in pink feathers on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s June/July 2017 issue, on newsstands May 23.
Here is what the 22-year-old model, who posed for a space-themed shoot with a little help from NASA, had to share with the mag:
On the constant paparazzi attention: “I understand that it comes with the territory, but it’s also very intense to always have to consider. I don’t think it will ever be normal, and if people ever feel like it’s normal, then that’s weird.”
On her anxiety while walking a runway: “I’ve really been working on trying to get better and to learn from every show, so I take it as a learning experience, because I always want to do my best. But I think it’s always going to be nerve-racking for me. There’s always a little thing, like the shoes [are tight] or the dress is heavy or whatever, so that’s what you’re focused on, to make sure your walk is going to go well.”
On her sister, Bella: “She’s so understanding of the demands of this job, and it’s really great that I can talk to her about it, because a lot of the time I feel suffocated by my own work ethic and by the expectations I put on myself. It’s really nice when you have people who say, ‘It’s okay to take time for yourself.”
