Today, in breaking fashion news: Gigi Hadid admits she isn't super-great at walking on the runway.
Hadid is the latest star of W Magazine's video series "Screen Tests," where she tells Lynn Hirschberg about why she can't go near the billboards she stars on and how she got her start with Carine Roitfeld. While talking about her early modeling days, she acknowledges the criticism that has dogged her throughout her career: That, despite scoring piles of coveted runway jobs, she's not exactly destined to go down as one of the greatest catwalkers.
"It's funny because obviously I'm not the best on the runway — okay everyone, we did it, Gigi said it, I know it!" she says, laughing with self-awareness. "But, what do you do? I never was taught how to walk on the runway, and maybe that's because it moved really quickly for me, that people just assumed that was something I knew — so I'm working on it."
Bestie and fellow Instagirl Kendall Jenner also stars in her own "Screen Tests" clip, where she talks about her own big runway break for Marc Jacobs in his fall 2014 show. Despite wearing flats, she says, she was still nervous to walk the runway in case she fell. But the one thing she wasn't nervous about? Her headline-making nudity.
"And then my tits were out, I don't know why I wasn't nervous about that," she says. "I was really excited about my tits being out, actually. I'm weird! I love my tits being out, it's like one of my things, I guess."
