Gigi Hadid proposed Natalia Bryant some great advice as she prepared for her Milan Fashion Week runway debut in the segment Fashion, published on Sunday, September 24th. Natalia, 20, interviewed several big models and asked for their advice, while Gigi, 28, told her to take it all in and take things slow. When she asked, Gigi said they discussed what they needed to know beforehand. “We’ve already talked about this,” she said.
Gigi told the budding model what her rehearsal would be like, but advised her to be present during the process. “At rehearsal they will ask you to walk quickly. They’re going to scream. They will shout at you to go quickly. I said just try to enjoy the moment. Allow yourself to remember this. Be in the present moment,” she said.
Other models Natalia interviewed included: Precious Lee And Amelia Gray who gave similar advice to be confident. At the end of the clip, Gigi assured her that she would be incredible. “You’ll be great,” she said. “Love you. I’m so proud of you. I’m going to cry.”
