Gigi Hadid meets romantic pink ruffles with a glimpse of patriotic underwear on the cover of Allure magazine this month, where the supermodel opens up about her ambitions, hard work and style.
On how she doesn’t consider herself a style icon:
“I never really had a great sense of style. I was wearing what I wanted to wear. I don’t really know what my style is.”
On the fact that she always wanted to be a model:
“I don’t know why, but I just knew. I knew I wanted to make pictures better… I was obsessed with photographers and where models were supposed to fit in. Obviously, I’m not taking iconic pictures as a six-year-old, but I studied models as part of an image, not just as a model, if that makes sense. I first got inspiration for energy in a photo looking at those Tommy Hilfiger family-picture ads, where there were so many people and it looked like so much fun. I guess I saw what a lot of people don’t see in models, which is that it’s hard work, and you’re not just another object in the photo… I don’t know if I got it from riding or school or volleyball or my mom or all of them. But I’ve always been the person to self-alarm at 4 a.m. to finish a school project.”
On the claims that nepotism has helped her career:
“I always want to prove myself and to let people know I’m a good person. A lot of people don’t realize they’re typing this stuff, and that’s a lot of negative energy—regardless of whether we see it or not. People just don’t realize the power of their judgment.”
On her future plans – she wants to be an actress:
“I think I’ll only do one or two movies in my life, so I want them to be good.”

On how everyone is worried about a specific part of their body and her biggest insecurity:
“I think every single person in the world has insecurities. It’s crazy because I think that when other people look at all of the VS models or all of the girls [who] are walking, they’re like, ‘They’re not human. They don’t have any insecurities.’ But I think every single girl [who’s] going to be walking probably has an insecurity. Mine? I wish my ass was bigger.”

30 year-old model Chrissy Teigen is not afraid of telling it how it is, even when she receives backlash for it. Recently, the new mom shared a few thoughts on attaining that ideal Hollywood body and how celebrities have it way easier than regular people, since they have entire crews helping them achieve their weight loss goals.
On how regular women should not compare themselves with celebrities when it comes to getting in shape:
Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything. We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape.
… says Chrissy.

Models and actresses get told constantly that they are too fat for a part / a modeling gig / an agency / a movie – and the same thing can happen to athletes, too. Gold Medalist Olympian Simone Biles is no stranger to fat shaming, despite having a strong, athletic figure.
Here are all the details from People Magazine:
Speaking to Today’s Hoda Kotb, the 19-year-old opened up about some of her struggles — including the time she was body-shamed by a coach.
It was in 2013 at a meet where Biles wasn’t performing as well as she had hoped.
“You overheard a coach say, ‘You know why she crashed? Because she’s too fat — that’s why. How does she expect to compete like that?’ ” Kotb prompted.
Biles said it was a hard comment for her to hear. “I dismissed myself from the floor so nobody could see me and I walked to the back behind the curtains and I was crying.”
But thanks to some inspirational words from her head team coordinator, Martha Karolyi, Biles managed to find the courage to pick herself up and move past the moment.
“Martha pulled me back on the floor and she gave me a little bit of a pep talk and was like, ‘See, you can’t train like this and let the results show,’ ” Biles said. “So I went back to the gym and I did as told. Her pep talk kind of gave me a little bit of an up rather than a down.”
“It felt good to hear her,” Biles added. “Because I was terrified she was going to be upset with me.”
