Model Moment: Gigi Hadid
Harper's Bazaar: What age did you start modeling?
I started modeling when I was about 2 or 3 years old, I started with Baby Guess and I did Guess Kids and that was the extent of my modeling career as a kid. I took all of my elementary, middle and high school years off to focus on school and sports.
What was the moment of your return to modeling?
I signed with IMG in 2011 and that was my first agency and I knew it was what I wanted to do. I was about to graduate high school and I wanted to move to New York and build my career, so IMG was a great place for me to be able to do that.
How would you describe your approach to modeling?
It's all teamwork between me and my agent. He guides me a lot through it but once I'm there I always try and take in the artistic, creative ideas from the art director or designer or photographer, whoever is leading. 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.
Your recent V Mag spread was beautiful, how do you approach nudity while still feeling comfortable in the situation?
Well with V Mag it was a very artistic and symbolic thing...I was playing more of a character than it was just them taking pictures with me. It was a beautiful concept that had some meaning for me about this girl that's kind of crossing a path and finding herself. I think that if you can find the art in it, it's a beautiful thing.
You're on Instagram and Twitter, what are your thoughts on being involved in social media?
I think it's really important for me, especially with modeling and being in any type of entertainment industry it's really important to be able to share your side of things. I think in the past a lot of the time models were kind of looked at as more of an object, I think they are becoming more of personalities and celebrities because we have social media to be able to share those things. I'm really taking advantage of it and I think that social media is becoming such a huge part of becoming a successful person in fashion. I'm just embracing that and trying to do the best I can.
How would you describe your personal style?
It's funny because it's definitely different when I'm in New York or when I'm home in California. I think that kind of take on two different personalities in those two places through my style. In California I'm more of a beach chick and I kind of take on a model city girl when I'm in New York.
Do you have any go-to brands or stores that you gravitate to the most?
Rag & Bone is a big part of my closet. I just really like how their jeans fit, I wear them a lot and I think they make really cool staple pieces.
Do you have any photographers that you would love to work with that you haven't yet?
I would love to work with Mario Testino.
What has been your favorite shoot to date?
I think probably my favorite would be forSports Illustratedjust because I love theSports Illustratedteam and they're so much fun to work with and have such a positive energy, I love being on set with them.
Do you have any models that you look up to?
I love Doutzen, I think she's beautiful and she's a beautiful spirit just as much as she is beautiful on the outside. I think she's super cool.
What are your favorite travel destinations?
Probably the top would be St. Barths, I went this past New Years. I love Tahiti, I love tropical places.
Where would you like to see yourself in the next few years?
I don't like to say exactly where I'd like to be just because I feel like my goals change every day. I find that I'm doing things every day that I never would have even dreamed about yesterday. I'm just working hard and hoping that everything falls into place.
