The lat­est on Gigi Hadid

ON COP­ING WITH FAME “I just take it day by day. It's a lot [to deal with] but I think it's im­por­tant to know your­self and know when you are push­ing your­self too hard. You need to be re­ally hon­est with your­self and with the peo­ple that sup­port you be­cause your men­tal health and well­be­ing is just as im­por­tant as phys­i­cal. That is what I try and fo­cus on.”

ON DO­ING BUSI­NESS WITH BELLA

“What's re­ally nice about be­ing a sis­ter duo in this in­dus­try is that you have each other and you get to ex­pe­ri­ence it to­gether. When we go back­stage at shows or on sets, we al­ways have the best time and it's the one thing that makes ev­ery­where feel like home. That's re­ally nice.”

ON SI­B­LING RI­VALRY “I think hav­ing a sis­ter that looks com­pletely op­po­site to me is re­ally help­ful... It's good for peo­ple to un­der­stand that we both have our own paths and it's not about com­pe­ti­tion or any­thing like that. We are just here to sup­port each other… Bella works so hard… she has such a great fan base and she de­serves it. I am so happy for her.”

ON MAK­ING MU­SIC WITH ZAYN MA­LIK

“I wish he could be on set with me every day be­cause it doesn't feel like work when he's there. [But] I'm not sure about [ap­pear­ing in an­other] mu­sic video… It was fun for us [then] be­cause we had just started dat­ing so now it's cute to look back. We were so into each other and flirt­ing the whole day. But I think it's re­ally im­por­tant for artists to be able to change their creativ­ity. Maybe in a cou­ple of years...”

The un­stop­pable Gigi Hadid talks style in­spo, si­b­ling ri­valry, and col­lab­o­rat­ing with Tommy Hil­figer

ON TEAM­ING UP WITH TOMMY HIL­FIGER

“It's in­cred­i­ble. I have been a fan of the brand my en­tire life. I started mod­el­ling be­cause I love pho­tog­ra­phers and images, and my favourite cam­paigns were the big Tommy Hil­figer cam­paigns.”

ON HOW THE COL­LAB­O­RA­TION CAME ABOUT

“The con­ver­sa­tion got started about just cam­paigns and slowly moved on to the idea of the col­lec­tion. I couldn't have asked for a bet­ter first time than with this team, I just got to do the fun stuff and they are ex­e­cut­ing it the way that they have for so many years. They are pros at it and they’ve taught me so much. They were re­ally wel­com­ing and open to my ideas and they made me feel like they wanted my opin­ion and that was re­ally spe­cial.”

ON BRANCH­ING INTO FASH­ION DE­SIGN

“As a kid, I did a lot of art… and I loved fash­ion and Tommy of course. It was great to come in and just be able to re­ally col­lab­o­rate and take in­spi­ra­tion from old Tommy pieces and vin­tage pieces that I love. We had a re­ally fun time. I was sup­posed to stay for two hours at my first as­sign­ment and I stayed for eight!”

ON THE VIBE OF THE COL­LEC­TION

“I feel the most beau­ti­ful when I’m com­fort­able. If I am fid­get­ing with stuff, I am sec­ond guess­ing it. So I just wanted to make a col­lec­tion that I would want to wear all the time. It's def­i­nitely com­fort­able and you're never go­ing to feel out of place in it.”

ON WHAT IN­SPIRED IT “What I love about liv­ing in New York is that I find in­spi­ra­tion in peo­ple every day. When I was de­sign­ing the col­lec­tion, ob­vi­ously I wanted pieces that I would wear… and I was think­ing of my friends. I was think­ing of fans… So [the col­lec­tion] in­volves a lot of dif­fer­ent styles; sporty, vin­tage and more ca­sual-chic. We tried to in­cor­po­rate a piece for ev­ery­one.”

ON WHAT PIECES HER SQUAD WOULD WEAR

“I would love to see [Tay­lor Swift and Ken­dall Jen­ner] in the sweater dress. They love the boots too. Tommy says the col­lec­tion is for ‘Gigi and friends’, so all of my friends will def­i­nitely be wear­ing it… It's a re­ally great mix of the clas­sic East Coast style of Tommy Hil­figer and my West Coast style. But all of the pieces are re­ally me. I love the sun­glasses. I am so ob­sessed with glasses, it's the big­gest col­lec­tion in my closet.”

ON KEEP­ING FIT AND HEALTHY

“My mom al­ways says, 'drink wa­ter!' So drink­ing wa­ter is my beauty se­cret. I grew up play­ing a lot of sports: beach vol­ley­ball and rid­ing horses on the beach… to work out at the gym doesn't re­ally do it for me. But I love box­ing. It's the thing that I want to get bet­ter at.”
