American designer Tommy Hilfiger recently revealed that Gigi Hadid was fat-shamed by a casting director at her first audition for the label. Yep, Gigi’s body was deemed so hideous that she was sent down the runway in an enormous poncho.
Obviously, we all lost our shit with rage because her body is friggin’ gorgeous, and how outrageous, and okay we’re getting mad again. Breathe, people. Breathe.
Gigi responded to the comments in an interview with Access Hollywood, and she was classy AF about it.
“It's funny because people think that it's something that I wasn't aware of. Back in the day, that would have gone through my mind," she said.
“But I know that when Tommy said it last week, it was in context of a larger story. ... The point of that story was that Tommy was rooting for me and … regardless of what the stylist of that season said or what he put me in, Tommy wanted me in the show.
“Tommy was pushing for me and Tommy loved my curves.”
All class, that Gigi Hadid. All class. Bravo.
