As part of the "selfie" generation, Hadid's attention to composition and devotion to posing have set her apart from others in the business. She says, "I guess I saw what a lot of people don't see in models, which is that it's hard work, and you're not just another object in the photo." As for her earliest inspiration, Hadid turns to her recent collaborator, Tommy HIlfiger, "I first got inspiration for energy in a photo looking at those Tommy Hilfiger family-picture ads, where there were so many people and it looked like so much fun." Clearly, Hadid has given herself over to mastering her talent, and it's helped her stand out.
