I want my Instagram to look good. You go through people’s pages and it’s all, like, selfies or their butts. I love a good belfie—don’t get me wrong. I post those every once in a while.
On being BFFs with Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, & Hailey Baldwin:
This is going to sound really, really lame, but we all call ourselves the Super Natural Friend Group because we all have such cool individual lives and we’ve been dreaming about them since we were so young.
