“I’m good—I’m actually pretty calm, surprisingly,” the models says of how she’s feeling pre-show. “I don’t know if it’s because it’s my second time? I think the nerves will hit me in a little bit.”
And though it’s probably helpful to have friends like Gigi and Bella Hadid there―”It’s awesome I think it makes the experience so much better—they’re genuinely my friends so its really cool. I feel like I’m on a big school field trip.”―she still gives herself a pre-show pep talk of sorts.
“Literally, and I know this may sound weird, but I think it’s one of the shows where you can really be selfish and like really just like think about yourself and take a moment for yourself and kind of tell yourself that you’re beautiful, that you’re hot and to kill it –in your head, not sitting in front of the mirror, saying I’m so hot,” she says, laughing. “It’s kind of one of those shows where you have to do that to hype yourself up.”
And you don’t wear underwear on the runway. “You kind of have to be a little confident to do that.”
