Back in 2015, Gigi Hadid walked the Tommy Hilfiger in a bikini and she immediately received a lot of criticism for not looking skinny enough. Gigi then wrote a lengthy post in which she shared that she was comfortable with her figure and that she would never change it – her words in 2015 (read it all here):
Yes, I have b####. I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into sample sizes. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers opinions of me.
This week, Gigi, who previously said that she lost weight due to a thyroid medical condition, recalled the feedback she got in 2015 for her message, saying:
‘The response was crazy. From Victoria’s Secret Angels to my friends who are considered plus size, everyone texted me and said they appreciated me saying something. The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure.’
