Meadow's first catwalk was a big gig: opening the Givenchy runway show.
On March 7, Meadow made her runway debut in Givenchy's Fall/Winter 2021 show. Meadow was given the honor of opening the show on her very first runway experience. In her Instagram post, Meadow referred to it as her "exclusive debut" and congratulated Matthew Williams, Givenchy's creative director, on his first Givenchy show and thanked him "for your complete support and determination to safely get me to Paris from NY."
She also thanked casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro. "Thank you to everyone involved. Endless gratitude and love for you all," she closed out the caption. To see what another star's model offspring looks like, Here's Your First Look at Kobe Bryant's Daughter's Modeling Debut.
Meadow admitted she was a bit nervous.
On the day of the show, Meadow took over Vogue Runway's Instagram story to give followers a behind-the-scenes look at the fashion show. Meadow explained that the show was taking place in a stadium-esque venue in Paris, and she noted her relief that it wasn't filled with people due to COVID. "I was just thinking if it was completely filled, and I was walking on the runway, I'd be absolutely terrified," she admitted on the Instagram story.

In January, 22-year-old Meadow shared images of her modeling debut in Proenza Schouler's Pre-Fall 2021 campaign on her Instagram. "I am so unbelievably grateful to everyone who has supported me and believed in me," Meadow wrote in the caption, thanking Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. She also thanked her modeling agency, DNA Models, referring to them as her "family." The agency, which represents major models like Kaia Gerber and Emily Ratajkowsi, announced they signed Meadow that same day.
