Gigi Hadid Froze Herself Before the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
For some, that means hitting the gym a little harder, sticking to strict diets, amping up their facials, spray tans, etc. but newbie Gigi Hadid had something else in mind to take her prep up a notch. According to Refinery29, she stepped into an ice-cold chamber and stayed there for three minutes.
"I did cryotherapy yesterday, which is freezing-cold, but it's really good for blood circulation," she told the site before the show. "And, you know, after having two workouts a day for a week, it's really good for healing your muscles and feeling fresh and having good energy did it once before, and my mom does it a lot. I wanted to do it before the show, and it's great."
Other than cryotherapy, Gigi listened to Disney songs and wore Acqua di Gio perfume, telling the site, "I love it, and it just calms me a little bit and having my friends around [backstage] makes me calm."
Landing the show was a dream come true for Gigi, particularly because she was rejected from the show twice before she made the cut this year. Her mom, former supermodel Yolanda Foster, told the Daily Mail, "She has worked really hard," Yolanda continued. "She's missed it twice, this was her third try, and she pulled it off and got a spot that millions and millions of beautiful women deserve as much as she does. That's a part of the game though."
Gigi echoed those sentiments, telling Refinery 29 the show was "something I've dreamed about my whole life," adding that she "started crying" when she got the gig and "cried all day every time someone called me to say congratulations."
She definitely didn't disappoint when she hit the runway at the show Tuesday night. She served so much fierceness as she strutted down it that it made our jaws drop. Girl, werk!
