Gigi Hadid is one of the most wanted models in the current fashion shows’ season. She has been brewing up a storm (of sorts) everywhere she has appeared. Her latest appearance was at the Paris Fashion Week in a Giambattista Valli gown and, boy, did she steal the show?
The 20-year-old sauntered the runway in a plunging marigold gown which had an embellished bodice. The gown helped Hadid flaunt her sexy curves in such a manner that everyone’s eyes were on her.
This latest runway appearance where she showed off her curves in the most enticing manner will surely be remembered by all the body-shamers. Recently Gigi wrote an open letter and posted it on Instagram where she literally bashed the body-shamers. Her post was widely lauded by other models including Ashley Graham and Tyra Banks. Gigi not only defended her healthy figure but also had some strong words to say in response to all the hateful messages she has been receiving about her body on social media.
“No, I don't have the same body type as other models in shows. No, I don't think I'm the best at any given shows. Yes, I want to have a unique walk but I also know I have to improve. No, I'm not the first or the last model of my type in this industry,” Gigi wrote. “You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I'm a hard worker that's confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.”
She continued by adding, “Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment. I'm fitting into the sample sizes. Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body, they don't make me want to say no to designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don't change the designers opinions of me. If they want me in their show, I'm in it; if they don't, I'm not. That's just how it is and how it will be.”
Her confident walk, the gown and the occasion surely corresponded with what Gigi wrote in the letter. There is no doubt that Gigi is currently every designer’s favorite and she has been standing out in all the fashion shows where she has appeared.
