Gigi Hadid talks modelling and social media with Vogue Australia

https://instagram.com/p/BkLlB7Fn3Mx

- she mostly stays on her mom's farm where she can ride horses and cook food in the kitchen every day
- she got sick of being on airplanes all the time and felt she spent too much time in the air / airports, so she's learned to prioritize and say no (AKA she basically only does photoshoots and events in new york now)
- thinks social media is unhealthy and is taking a step back from it
- came from privilege, but always tries to work hard and improve her craft so other models will respect her
- is a perfectionist and is always working on being a better model (her walk, commanding a shot etc.)
- the interviewer mentions she's beautiful like x10 times even though it was a phone interview

I know I come from privilege, so when I started there was this big guilt of privilege, obviously. I’ve always had this big work ethic, because my parents came from nothing and I worked hard to honour them. There are so many girls who come [from] all over the world and work their arses off and send money home to their families like my mother did, and I wanted to stand next to them backstage and for them to look at me and respect me and to know that it’s never about me trying to overshadow or take their place."

“I’ve learned a lot in the last year, just figuring out what my priorities are and learning how to manage my time to prioritise the things and people that are important to me, because I’m hard on myself with those things.”

“I learn how to master something and continue to want to master it. I’m not the greatest at modelling – obviously! But every day I wake up and try to learn something new about what I do. You know that people say I shouldn’t be on the runway? I’ve got a lot better at dealing with that and wanting to better myself. That’s my motivation. [...] Now I can see an image and know where I can enhance the photo rather than just be in it."
