Naomi Campbell helped Gigi Hadid in modeling



British actress, singer, author and supermodel Naomi Campbell have assisted Gigi Hadid in her modeling, reports have revealed. She held her “weird” walk by giving the budding model a catwalk master class, before previous year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Hadid was afraid while working with Campbell but then she got a much confidence boost by following her. The 45-year-old Campbell recruited at the age of 15 and established herself amid the top three most familiar and in-demand models of the late 1980s.

Supermodel Hadid recalled that “So I go to her hotel and we end up practicing walking in the hallway of the hotel. Italian families were coming out to watch and Naomi was just like, ‘Don’t look at them! Keep walking! They are your audience’,” she further continued by saying, “She also said, ‘Don’t apologize – just don’t do it! You are perfect the way you are. Everyone said my walk was weird too,’” she added.

The 20-year-old American fashion model and television personality Hadid further shared the facts of the unprepared lesson as, “The elevator would open and the waiter would come out but Naomi would say, ‘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.” It was good luck for Hadid that she went through all the hardships, and further added that “After getting a lot of different opinions about my past Fashion Weeks, I went into the VS show thinking that maybe I am different, but it’s going to be fine,” she further continued that “If people don’t like how I walk, then they don’t have to watch.”
