Gigi Hadid on The Truth Behind Modeling
“I don’t know why, but I just knew,” Gigi says about her drive to model since a young age. “I knew I wanted to make pictures better…I was obsessed with photographers and where models were supposed to fit in. Obviously, I’m not taking iconic pictures as a six-year-old, but I studied models as part of an image, not just as a model, if that makes sense.” She continues, “I guess I saw what a lot of people don’t see in models, which is that it’s hard work, and you’re not just another object in the photo.”
