Gigi Hadid was taught to catwalk by Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell taught Gigi Hadid how to walk the runway.

The 20-year-old model recently strutted her stuff down the catwalk at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York City and has admitted the 45-year-old supermodel dished out her top tips on how to be a success at the event.

Speaking to Grazia magazine, she said: "Naomi gave me some pointers so that was really exciting. We were just hanging out at her hotel and I was talking about the show and she said, 'Let's practice walking in the hallway.'

"Being cast in the show was nerve-wracking but Naomi told me, 'Take your own time. Don't go to the pace of the girl in front of behind. Have your own movement and remember it.' "

The blonde beauty - who made her debut alongside models Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge at the star-studded event - had to work really hard to earn her spot on the catwalk after being rejected twice in the past.

Gigi's mother Yolanda Foster, 54, said previously: "She has worked really hard; this didn't just fall into her lap. 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."
