Los Angeles, Feb 7 (IANS) Supermodel Naomi Campbell helped Gigi Hadid embrace her “weird” walk by giving her a catwalk masterclass before the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
The 20-year-old model had a confidence boost before she appeared in the prestigious Victoria’s Secret fashion show in December after the British supermodel gave her a “terrifying” masterclass in catwalk skills, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I was with Naomi a couple of weeks before the VS show,” said Hadid.
“She said, ‘Don’t apologise, don’t do it. You are perfect the way you are. Everyone said my walk was weird too.’ I go to her hotel and we end up practising walking in the hallway of the hotel. Italian families are coming out to watch and she’s like, ‘Don’t look at them, keep walking, they’re your audience’.”
“The elevator would open and the waiter would come out – ‘Don’t look at him, he’s your audience, do a spin and keep going.’ It was terrifying, walking in front of this Italian grandmother and her kid.”
“After getting a lot of different opinions about my past Fashion Week, I went into the VS show thinking, ‘Yeah. Maybe I am different,’ but I have heard Naomi saying, ‘Bitch better have my money’ after I walked for her. So it’s going to be fine. If people don’t like how I walk, then they don’t have to watch,” added Hadid.
