There’s no rest for the weary, even when your last name is Hadid (and your boyfriend is former One Directioner, Zayn Malik). Such is the case for jet-setting model and budding designer Gigi Hadid, who’s slated to walk in her second-ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris next month. The eldest Hadid daughter was in New York on Wednesday night to celebrate yet another one of her many endeavors: a collaboration with Stuart Weitzman.
The Insta-model was game to talk shoes, personal style and the new James Franco-directed film to promote the collaboration — in which she boxes wearing the mid-heeled booties for 12 hours. But she really lit up when the conversation topic moved on to pies. Yes, pies — as in baked goods.
After the Victoria’s Secret show, which takes place in November 6 in Paris, Gigi and her sister Bella (who, it was revealed Wednesday, will be taking her first turn on the Victoria’s Secret runway this year), will head back home for a Hadid family Thanksgiving.
And they don’t kid around when it comes to the holiday eats.
“I’m just really excited for Thanksgiving,” said Hadid, who was wearing an oversized button-down shirt with a fitted corset on top. “I always make pies for Thanksgiving. I’m the pie girl. I love rhubarb pie, I love apple pie and pumpkin pie and blackberry pie — but sometimes that mixes with the rhubarb into one [pie].”
That’s a lot of pie.
“Well, we have a big family and they’re very picky, so I do lots of choices of pie,” Hadid said.
As for the rest of the Hadid clan, they all have jobs assigned for the holiday…except brother Anwar, a splashy model in his own right.
“My dad does really good stuffing and all of the meat, and my mom is the best for buttered carrots and cranberry Jell-O, or whatever you call it. Bella does dessert. Anwar just eats and I do pie,” she added.
So models do eat.
