Hadid says that during her acceptance speech for Glamour Woman of the Year in 2017, “I was really nervous to give my speech, and I almost couldn’t speak because I really felt that honored and touched.”

But when it comes to modeling, the pair are just grateful to have a each other.
6. She can spot a sociopath from a mile away.
While attending of The New School in Manhattan, before her modeling career took off, Hadid majored in criminal psychology. “I also love documentaries, that’s what I’m usually watching, both crime and others. I like to think I can recommend anyone a documentary that they’d love.”
