Close GIGI HADID speaks to us backstage at Giambattista Valli about social media body-shaming and the bold comments she wrote on Instagram and shared with her 7.2 million followers at the start of Paris Fashion Week. Gigi had received numerous negative comments on the popular social media app, with some criticizing her curves, slightly jumpy walk and reality show pedigree.

On September 28th Gigi defended herself and wrote a passionate, heartfelt post on her Instagram feed:

“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows… 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.” @GigiHadid

American born Gigi Hadid is 20 years old and is a social media superstar – she is signed to IMG models and has appeared Sports Illustrated and is one of the faces of Maybelline New York. During the recent Spring 2016 fashion month Gigi walked in some of the world’s hottest designer fashion shows including Anna Sui, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Balmain.

Designer Giambattista Valli told us he cast Gigi in his Spring 2016 show because he felt she embodies the spirt of his woman, “She’s so imperfectly beautiful, she’s so stunning and so real”. We caught up with Gigi Hadid backstage at the Giambattista Valli show in Paris to find out more about her empowering message for young women everywhere.

Sormeh Siavoshi says:

donna winona says:

you deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom, who flies with you and isn't afraid to fall

Freemoney345 says:

For all you dumb ass girls and boys saying she isn't skinny enough wtf you mean she real skinny ok and she isn't fat just she got pair nice titties that doesn't mean she can't be a model…. She is unique model she actually one few model with a butt and tits…. And these girls are saying that she was born into rich family and she just got lucky…. No tf she didn't she took advantage herself if you know you got the connections to become a model then take advantage even if you don't you keep trying and never stop… Fucking ridiculous Gigi my wcw all day every fucking day… And I hope Gigi you read this… And just remember Gigi when someone says something negative just say fuck you hater.

Noah Redden says:

Dagoberto orozco naranjo says:

Gigi hadid,luce de la manera mas espectacular y atractiva;esos vestidos bellamente estampados en multiples colores,tan esquicitamente ajustados a su hermoso cuerpo…que nos hace suspirar de emocion.Yo creo que la forma de modelar de Gigi,es muy particular.Desde hacia tiempo,Ella ya se merecia estar en el selecto grupo de Victorias Secret.

tallladyjay says:

Yolanda raised smart, empathic, confident and beautiful young women.

aleka dela cruz says:

she is right! no one has the right to be mean with someone else, stop being insecure and just focus on being awesome, because we all our amazingly gorgeous in our own unique way… haha

Micky M. says:

How the fuck does she talk about body shaming when she keeps her body a certain way for her modeling

Boring Boring-ness says:

Why so much hate? Yeah, she's not as skinny as the other models, but who says you have to be that thin anyway? She's probably the first model I ever saw who actually had BREASTS. And she can get pregnant, isn't that a good thing? And so what if she got famous easily? Did she steal YOUR spot? She has something positive to say, while all you can do is spread hate. So I'm glad SHE'S the famous one and not you.

lucia molinero says:

who is the model in green at the end?

Richard Lin says:

Its like "you deserve"…."a love"…. fucking cast this guy in zoolander 3 please. lmfao.

silkbuttons says:

What is not perfect about this woman? I don't understand why he points out she is not perfect?

Jenkittypaw says:

She is quite a bit overrated (mainly because of instagram, I think). However, I think she's gorgeous and it's nice to see different sizes on the runway. Honestly, I thinks she's healthy looking but still slim and it reminds me of 90s supermodels. I like her body type a lot, and it really suits certain looks really well. Her face is beautiful and stands out from the crowd. I especially love her eyebrows!

Flynn B900 says:

Gigi Hadid is, in my opinion, the hottest girl in the fashion industry at the moment, she's like an angel. So beautiful and sexy
