I only make things from scratch,
00:06
but I have to say that I think sometimes
00:08
the taste of a packaged cake is very fun,
00:13
and reminiscent of childhood,
00:16
and so I appreciate the packaged cake today,
00:20
and for going back to my childhood.
00:22
Hey guys.
00:24
I'm Gigi.
00:27
Today, oh, sorry.
00:29
Today we're doing ASMR with W magazine.
00:35
We're going to do a sonic tour of my life and career.
00:42
Let's do it.
00:45
My first modeling gig was for Baby Guess,
00:50
and I was I think two or three,
00:56
and it was always on the beach
01:00
or somewhere that we would go and play,
01:03
and it was really fun for me.
01:06
Kids weren't allowed to work for that many hours,
01:08
so we had a game tent,
01:12
and we got an hour to go play games together,
01:14
and I just thought it was so fun.
01:18
Well it was Baby Guess, so we wore a lot of denim.
01:22
Denim jackets, and little shirts, and stuff.
01:27
Shirts with little slogans on them.
01:32
And now we're gonna play with some baby clothes,
01:37
to represent my start in modeling.
01:53
There's a little button.
02:00
[popping]
02:04
[zipping]
02:25
I actually should have said this earlier,
02:27
but I actually started riding horses
02:30
before I started modeling.
02:32
Even before I could walk, or do anything,
02:36
I was riding horses.
02:38
We had a farm in Colorado,
02:40
and my first pony was a miniature pony,
02:43
and my mom had a tiny saddle,
02:47
made in Holland where she's from,
02:49
so that I could ride.
02:51
And I got bucked off every day,
02:52
but it made me a good rider.
02:57
I was never scared of horses.
02:59
I was more fearless then, than I am now.
03:02
It's hard to say how many horses I've had,
03:04
because sometimes you own a horse,
03:07
and sometimes you ride one
03:08
for a little bit of time,
03:09
or sometimes you ride it for someone else.
03:13
So I've had connections with a lot of different horses,
03:15
that I feel like were mine, but weren't really.
03:21
There's a lot of family,
03:23
but recently I bought back a horse
03:28
that I rode when I was 15 years old,
03:31
that I competed on,
03:32
and we won a lot together,
03:34
and he went on to teach a lot of kids,
03:36
and even took a lot of adults,
03:39
like older adults, and was really good to them,
03:41
so now we have him at my farm.
03:44
And he just is retired,
03:46
and I take him on trail rides and stuff.
03:52
Now we're gonna play with horse things.
03:57
Horseshoes.
03:58
I used to have, when my horses would get shod,
04:03
I used to take their hooves
04:05
and hang them on my bedboard, in my room, nail them.
04:20
[tinging]
04:32
[banging]
04:49
Now this is a bridle.
04:51
I could teach you about all the parts of the bridle,
04:53
but I don't know if you wanna know it.
04:56
Okay.
04:57
Whose bridle is this?
05:01
Alright.
05:04
[clanking]
05:15
This is the bit.
05:18
And when the horses play with it in their mouth,
05:21
it actually calms them down.
05:22
They like the taste of the metal,
05:24
and so when you hear them chomping on the bit,
05:29
it sounds like this.
05:30
[clinking]
05:40
Then the leather.
05:46
The leather doesn't really make that many sounds.
05:51
[clinking]
05:55
What about this now?
05:56
This is called the noseband.
06:12
And pretty much all of these things sound the same,
06:14
probably, when you put them together.
06:20
In 2014, I had my first Fashion Week,
06:27
and my first show at Fashion Week
06:32
was a show I'm not gonna say, so you can't look it up,
06:36
and it was disastrous,
06:39
because no one ever taught me how to walk before,
06:44
and I think that's what people don't realize.
06:46
I learned as I started doing it,
06:49
and I still learn every day
06:51
that I'm on the runway.
06:54
And you can try and make fun of me for it,
06:58
but the designers want me in their shows, so,
07:02
I just try to get better.
07:06
Now we're gonna listen to some shoes on a catwalk.
07:14
My first show I ever opened
07:16
was the same week in 2013, it was the Jeremy Scott show,
07:20
and he gave me so much confidence,
07:22
and made me feel so good,
07:23
and I feel like from then I've been getting better,
07:26
so thanks Jeremy, I love you.
07:29
Okay.
07:34
[tapping]
07:36
You know what's hard?
07:38
Walking like you walk in shoes with your feet.
07:42
I mean with your hands.
07:43
[tapping]
07:48
Also shoes.
07:50
Also what people don't understand
07:52
is how much pain we all go through
07:54
during the shows with the shoes.
07:57
All the girls, it's kind of what brings us together,
08:00
in sisterhood, is that each show
08:03
has a different kind of pain level,
08:06
and experience, and hardship with the shoes.
08:11
And they don't always have your size,
08:13
and sometimes you have to edit your own footpads,
08:17
so that your foot doesn't slide around.
08:25
Also sometimes the shoes aren't made yet to be sold.
08:27
They're just fake shoes for the runway.
08:30
We're not naming any names though.
08:34
Something I love to do is cook,
08:36
and a couple years ago,
08:40
I was on Master Chef and I won.
08:44
So, now we're gonna listen to some cooking sounds.
08:49
Baking sounds, I should say.
08:55
[clinking]
08:58
I only make things from scratch,
09:01
but I have to say that I think sometimes
09:03
the taste of a packaged cake is very fun,
09:08
and reminiscent of childhood.
09:11
And so I appreciate the packaged cake today,
09:15
and for going back to my childhood.
09:17
Okay.
09:19
So whisk.
09:25
[crinkling]
09:40
[tapping]
09:47
Can I?
09:49
I don't think that works with bowls.
09:55
[ting]
09:59
Eggs.
10:01
I'm a really good cook,
10:02
but I don't think I can crack it with one hand, still,
10:07
but we're gonna try.
10:08
[tapping]
10:14
Nice.
10:17
We have chickens at the farm,
10:19
and my favorite eggs are the fresh ones.
10:22
I can't eat eggs in the city anymore.
10:25
[tapping]
10:29
[cracking]
10:33
Ew.
10:36
[cracking]
10:47
I've never whisked my eggs before adding cake.
10:50
[whisking]
11:00
Okay eggs.
11:02
And now.
11:04
[crinkling]
11:33
[tapping]
11:37
So since I'm doing the holiday issue with W,
11:42
we're gonna open a gift.
11:48
Okay.
11:49
I like to save wrapping paper,
11:51
so I'm really careful when I open gifts.
11:55
I think wrapping paper is pretty.
12:02
I can't do anything with these nails.
12:06
[crinkling]
12:30
[tearing]
12:41
Do you know what this is?
12:48
These are the shoes that I designed with Stuart Weitzman,
12:51
and a lot of the proceeds went to Pencils of Promise,
12:55
and together we built about 80 schools,
13:00
with everyone's support of the Gigi boots,
13:03
and this was the second one called the EyeLove,
13:05
in Guatemala, Ghana, and Laos.
13:20
[crinkling]
13:23
So these are the EyeLoveMore's,
13:25
and this talks about how
13:30
I designed these because I put the evil eye on them too,
13:35
as a symbol of power against evil things,
13:39
and just keeping good energy near you,
13:41
and not letting bad energy into your life, so,
13:44
they all have evil eyes on them
13:45
to protect whoever is wearing them.
13:48
[crinkling]
13:55
And they're really comfy,
13:56
because inside they have ...
13:59
You can hear it.
14:01
[scratching]
14:05
They're soft inside, so your toes don't get cold.
14:07
You can wear them in the fall.
14:11
The top is suede, and then the evil eye detail is leather.
14:15
[scratching]
14:26
I hope you enjoyed this ASMR video.
14:29
Happy Holidays.
