Need proof that Gigi Hadid is one of the world's top models? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills daughter just landed on the cover of Harper's Bazaar's huge June/July issue. The image shows Gigi with a fan of hot-pink feathers swirling around her face; inside the book, Gigi poses as the most stylish woman to ever walk the moon.

But even though she's achieved an otherworldly level of success, the model still has doubts when it comes to her career. Gigi named walking the runway as an act that still trips her up a bit. "I think it’s always going to be nerve-racking for me," she told the mag. "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.”

Still, Gigi's come a long way towards mastering her saunter in the last six months. "I’ve started to learn how to pad my shoes correctly to support my feet. It’s like you learn little tricks, and you focus on those," she spilled.
Shoe support aside, modeling at Gigi's level involves an enormous amount of pressure. Gigi is always traveling to and fro, and being hounded by the paparazzi. Luckily, she has her little sis Bella to lean on when the going gets tough. “[Bella is] so understanding of the demands of this job, and it’s really great that I can talk to her about it,” Gigi said. “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.’”
Of course, Gigi also has great support from #ProudMommy Yolanda Hadid. Yolanda told the magazine: “Becoming a successful and financially independent young woman so early on comes with responsibilities, which can take away from life’s innocence. But we have so much gratitude for the amazing journey Gigi is on.”
