Gigi Hadid is "honored and grateful" to know and work with Adriana Lima.
The 21-year-old model rushed to praise the brunette beauty for her the help she’s given her in the runway world after she strutted alongside the 35-year-old long-time Angel in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris, France, on Wednesday (311.30.16).
Taking to her Instagram account after the show, she uploaded a photograph of her and Adriana in their skimpy lingerie sets alongside the caption: "Words can’t describe this woman’s powerful heart and spirit. She continues to lead the group with empowering confidence, grace, and infectious enthusiasm. I’m so honored and grateful to know and work with you @adrianalima!! Thank you for your love and support (sic)."
This is the second time Gigi has walked in the iconic event, which was held in the French capital for the first time ever in the show’s history, and clearly felt right at home as she giggled backstage with her best friend Kendall Jenner and sister Bella Hadid.
And it seems Gigi is already passing on Adriana’s tips and tricks, as Bella, 20, admitted the blonde beauty helps her feel less anxious and helps her on catwalk.
Bella said before the show yesterday: "It’s amazing; she’s really my comfort zone and my comfort blanket, so to be able turn around and to be able to talk to her, it really grounds me and makes me a little less nervous to have my best friend with me.
"She’ll always give me her honest opinion about everything – she watched my rehearsal yesterday. She’s always right there with me, so it calms me a little bit … I’m just trying to get out there and be confident and work it as hard as I possibly can. I’ll try to channel Beyoncé. I don’t know, I’ll just try to be myself and go out there and try and kill it."
