Gigi Hadid wants to be an example for young women.
When Vitalii Sediuk, a man who has gained notoriety for physically accosting a handful of Hollywood's most famous figures on red carpets, including Will Smith, Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio, picked up Gigi as she exited Milan's MaxMara show, the model immediately fought back. Gigi started elbowing Vitalii until he let her go and she nearly chased him down the street until her bodyguard stopped her.
Gigi's quick self-defense moves immediately earned her praise on social media from fellow celebs and fans, and now she's opening up about the scary experience in Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter. The 21-year-old model explains that what was happening didn't occur to her right away, but when she realized what was going on she channeled her instincts.
