21-year-old supermodel Gigi Hadid stuns on the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and in it, she details just how much she loves to eat. Read more below.
Most mornings, Gigi wakes up for 7a.m. “I usually eat breakfast or have coffee before I do anything,” the New York City-based beauty says. “I live near the Smile, and I love their scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast. I drink orange juice and coffee always. At home I love scrambled eggs and toast; it’s just an easy go-to. My boyfriend, being British, got me into breakfast beans, so that’s what I’ve been eating lately.”
She hits up Gotham Gym in the West Village at 9 a.m. for round of boxing. By lunchtime (usually around noon), her appetite is raging. “My personal motto is: ‘Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane,’ so if I’m in the mood I’ll go to JG Melon in the West Village,” she says. If she’s craving something a healthier, Hadid will head back to the Smile. “They have a little arugula salad that I could eat every day.”
Afternoon snack? “There used to be an Emack & Bolio’s on Houston Street, which is my favorite ice-cream place. I love the Grasshopper Pie,” she says of the trendy shop, which has multiple locations in the United States. “I would walk past it on my way to the gym every day, but one day it was closed and I almost cried. Now I’ll just Postmate pints of it to my apartment.”
Dinnertime calls for “drinks with friends”— “I love Bond Street for sushi.” Sometimes it’s nice to stay in, and Hadid is happy “to cook and watch a movie.” And sing, of course. Belting Broadway tunes makes her “the worst neighbor,” she jokes, but it’s “a good stress reliever.” Her go-to song is “Popular” from the musical Wicked. “I know at some point someone’s going to ask me to do this, and that’s the only one I’m willing to do publicly,” Hadid admits. “My boyfriend [Zayn Malik] gets into it too. He’s a big goofball. We laugh a lot.”
