Gigi Hadid shares heartfelt message to some of the newest models in the industry

Gigi Hadid is one of the biggest names in the fashion industry. And just because she has 41 million followers on Instagram, is dressed by the world's most renowned designers and is included on the covers of the most prestigious magazines in the world, doesn't mean she's let fame get to her head. 

The 23-year-old model spoke to some of IMG's latest discoveries faces through the We Love Your Genes platform about how she's still the same person inside despite her fame and how she stays rooted. "I just feel like you should be nice," Hadid advised the models. 

"It's something that my mom told me and I'm going to tell you guys. If you're not the nicest, most hardworking girl in the room, there's someone who is prettier, nicer and more hardworking," she explained. 

"Regardless if you're a new face or you've been in this and are considered one of the biggest in the world, you have to bring it," Gigi continued. Watch the video above to see how she resonates with these model hopefuls and the advice she gives!
