Recently, the 20 year old has been spotted driving sports cars in Dubai, posing for photos on a yacht with her friends off the shore of the famous Atlantis the Palm hotel, doing promo for her latest Dior makeup collaboration in London, and storming the Met Gala (opens in new tab) in a see-through Alexander Wang catsuit in New York.

"It's crazy because it looks like I have a lot of downtime and vacations, especially when people look at my pictures online," Hadid told Compelo (opens in new tab). "But the thing is that I don't post every day when I'm working, but I will post old pictures from previous trips and things which makes it look like I'm on vacation a lot of the time, when actually I'm at work."

"I want to enjoy the ride because you never know where the end is," she said. "That's what really freaks me out and worries me at night when I'm going to sleep," she told the publication.

What's not bothering her, though? A new relationship, she revealed in an interview with Grazia (opens in new tab).

"I'm focused on myself," she said. "It's like I'm finally getting to the point where I can just think about what I want to do and the places I want to go."
