When the Hadid sisters so much as sneeze the world notices, and when one or the other even briefly loses their balance, as has been known to happen, the world gasps. Thankfully, they'll always have each other and that sisterly bond was on full display Monday night when Gigi Hadid stumbled but didn't quite fall, thanks to her sis's steady hand.
A series of photos captured the less than graceful moment when Gigi tripped while at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, which was held on Monday evening at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. The snapshots show Gigi, who was honored as a Glamour Woman of the Year, losing her balance in her floor-length gold dress, but she's able to avoid fully falling by gripping the hand of Bella Hadid (her date for the event). The day — and the dress — were obviously saved by the bonds of sisterhood, and the world breathed a sigh of relief.
Gigi spoke about receiving the honor on The Today Show. She explained that no matter how many glamorous selfies she might post, she's not perfect. "Someone in my industry might be looked at as perfect, but it's of huge importance to let little girls know that just because I'm winning this award doesn't mean that everything is figured out," she said. "I wake up on days and it's not necessarily that I feel like Woman of the Year every morning."
Those thoughts on perfection seem to echo the message she conveyed in her acceptance speech. As she accepted the title, she explained what she'd like to be as a role model, saying, "I think my biggest responsibility, standing here, is to all the young women who are watching. I want to let you know that just because I'm standing here, winning this award, doesn't mean that I have it all figured out. I'm so grateful for every opportunity, but that doesn't mean that I wake up feeling like the Gigi that the world expects me to be on a daily basis."
So relatable, kind of like almost tripping in a floor-length gown.
