Gigi Hadid Shoots for the Moon in Harper’s Bazaar

by Kristen Heinzinger

Gigi Hadid is ready for blast off! In the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar’s, the 22-year-old mod was photographed at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida by photographer Mariano Vivanco. Styled by Tom Van Dorpe, she dons a bubblegum pink ostrich feather Prada hat on the cover, and inside gets fierce in glittery looks from Chanel, Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, and Stuart Weitzman, posing inside the space station and even on the moon (well, sort of). Gigi opens up to Josh Duboff about friendships (Taylor Swift weighs in!), her runway highlights and anxieties, the paparazzi, her sis Bella, and beyond. Scoop up a copy when the issue comes out May 23, and read the full interview HERE.

On constant attention from paparazzi…
“I understand that it comes with the territory, but it’s also very intense to always have to consider. I don’t think it will ever be normal, and if people ever feel like it’s normal, then that’s weird.”

On her anxiety while walking a runway…
“I’ve really been working on trying to get better and to learn from every show, so I take it as a learning experience, because I always want to do my best. But I think it’s always going to be nerve-racking for me. There’s always a little thing, like the shoes [are tight] or the dress is heavy or whatever, so that’s what you’re focused on, to make sure your walk is going to go well.”

On her sister, Bella…
“She’s so understanding of the demands of this job, and it’s really great that I can talk to her about it, because a lot of the time I feel suffocated by my own work ethic and by the expectations I put on myself. It’s really nice when you have people who say, ‘It’s okay to take time for yourself.”

Taylor Swift on Gigi…
“As a friend, Gigi is one of the first people I go to for advice. She has this incredible ability to see all sides of a situation and simplify it for you, to see the complexity of people…Gigi’s #1 rule is to treat people the way she’d want to be treated, so she’s on time (or early) to work, says hello to everyone on set, asks them how they are, and actually listens to their response. She is an innately kind and inclusive person who has managed to become a huge power player and businesswoman without ever compromising that.”
