It turns out there’s something Gigi Hadid and I totally have in common. Whereas I bug Nikki for Instagram advice fairly regularly (her account is seriously fab), Gigi gets to quiz famous friends like Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss.
In a video to accompany her recent AdWeek cover (ya know, the one where she said, “It’s not just OK anymore to model until you’re 25 and then stop and be a housewife”), she shared the things she’s learned from both ladies.
“From Kendall I learn how to deal with the haters. She has a really good sense of when to stand up and when to back off,” she said. “I think [Karlie] does such a good job of really showing who she is. She lets her personality really shine in her Instagram.”
The advice Miss G would give her pals (a.k.a. us)? “Have a feeling to your page, whether it’s a color scheme or the types of posts you do or making sure all your pictures are really good quality. Making sure they have great color, making sure they’re interesting…all those things come together into your brand. If you’re trying to make a brand, treat your page like a blog.”
All three of these ladies know their stuff—they all made it into the exclusive one million+ Instagram club. And lest you forget, Kendall has totally had to deal with some nasty-social hate (and knows the perfect Insta response).
