22 year-old Gigi Hadid might have missed this year’s Victoria’s Secret show, but she is still as busy as ever – here she is on the cover and inside pages of Vogue Germany, rocking Versace clothes in a shoot photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.
On her empowering Advent calendar video for LOVE Magazine:
‘Shooting the Advent calendar is a true expression of self-love and empowers women to embrace their own sexuality. This year we’re reminding women to #StayStrong because we are powerful, we are resilient, and we run the world.’
Growing up in L.A., both my sister and I had sort of touch-and-go body issues, some mildly recurring body dysmorphia.
But these days, she feels better than ever:
I’ve just never given less f-cks. It’s a nice feeling because you live your life more and care less about what other people think. Your career will fluctuate; you’ll have highs and lows. But I can always go to the gym and work out. I’m in control of myself and my body.
On changing her body through strength training:
I feel like strength is beautiful, rather than that stick-skinny beauty standard. I was transitioning fat into muscle without losing weight or gaining weight. But I say that loosely because I don’t own a scale. I haven’t weighed myself in years.
