Who lepa epp? I’m still wondering. Gigi Hadid walked for Tommy Hilfiger in 2015 all covered up, obviously because of her ‘fit’
Tommy Hilfiger stated in an interview with Yahoo Style: “Our casting director said, ‘She doesn’t really fit because, you know, she’s not quite as tall as the other girls. She’s not quite as thin.’ So they put a red, white, and blue poncho on her. It covered a lot of her body, unfortunately. But fortunately, that piece turned out to be the best selling item, leading to a collaboration between Gigi and Hilfiger.
For the next season Gigi walked the show with a bikini.
And from nowhere, one ‘oversabi’ commentator hit the wrong cord stating she lost weight to fit in. Her reply below obviously sent the message to the right spot.
“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows,” she wrote on an Instagram post published in September 2015, “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…I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before….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 size.”
Preach it sister!
