Meadow Walker is a natural runway walker!
The 22-year-old daughter of the late actor, Paul Walker made her official runway debut at the Givenchy fashion show on March 7. Meadow trudged through water on the catwalk in the popular brand’s latest clothes while walking under the bright lights (it’s not as easy as it sounds). The young model excitedly shared the big accomplishment with her millions of fans on social media. “Exclusive Debut. Opening Givenchy FW21,” she wrote. Scroll down to see her strut her stuff… briefly, the catwalk isn’t that long.
Walker profusely thanked Givenchy’s creative director, Matthew M Williams, for helping make her runway dreams come true. “Thank you Matt for your complete support and determination to safely get me to Paris from NY. Congratulations on your first Givenchy show @matthewmwilliams! Grazie mille @pg_dmcasting. Thank you to everyone involved. Endless gratitude and love for you all Xx #givenchyfw21,” she wrote alongside her runway video. She also posted a still of her look as she opened the highly-anticipated fashion show.
After Meadow finished her modeling duties, she took a trip to the Trevi Fountain in Rome. “arrivederci roma ?? stay safe,” she captioned a photo where she flashed a peace sign. It seems like she is preparing to head back to New York City, or at least, leaving the Eternal City.
The 22-year-old’s runway debut comes three months after the seventh anniversary of her father’s passing. Paul Walker died in a car crash on November 30, 2013. Meadow shared a throwback picture of her and her father sleeping and penned an emotional message on the anniversary. “a silly day to remember in sadness. today’s a celebration of the love and happiness you brought to the world. here’s a photo of my best bud & I napping,” she wrote at the time.
Meadow shares memories of her dad from time to time, but only when it feels right. She posted a never-before-seen video of herself scaring “the hell” out of Paul on his birthday. RIP Paul Walker.
