Did you know that another supermodel gave Gigi Hadid some awesome tips on how to do the perfect catwalk? Read on to know who it is!

Fashion model Gigi Hadid made her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut earlier this month. Are you wondering how she managed to do her perfect catwalk? Well, Xpose.ie recently revealed that the new VS Fashion Show recruit has been mentored by Naomi Campbell! The 45-year-old supermodel shared some top tips to Hadid and it seemed that those tips helped make the event successful.


In her recent interview with Grazia Magazine, the 20-year-old beauty revealed: “Naomi gave me some pointers so that was really exciting. We were just hanging out at her hotel and I was talking about the show and she said, ‘Let’s practice walking in the hallway.’”

“Being cast in the show was nerve-wracking but Naomi told me, ‘Take your own time. Don’t go to the pace of the girl in front of behind. Have your own movement and remember it,’” Hadid added.

Hadid made her runway debut at the recent fashion event with Victoria’s Secret Angels Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Adriana Lima. The blonde beauty had to work hard in order to earn her spot on the catwalk after “getting rejected not just once, but twice, in the past.”

Hadid’s mom, 54-year-old Yolanda Foster also talked about her daughter’s VS Fashion Show journey.

“She has worked really hard; this didn’t just fall into her lap. She’s missed it twice, this was her third try and she pulled it off and got a spot that millions and millions of beautiful women deserve as much as she does,” Foster shared.


It will be recalled that in August of this year, Hollywood Treatment reported that Hadid was named as the “World’s Most Connected Supermodel” by W Magazine after Guess Launch. She got the title because of her huge fan base. Hadid has over 5.5 million Instagram followers during that time, but now she has over 8.8 million followers! She earned around 3.3 million followers in just 3 months!
