Gigi Hadid has had it with the negative backlash about her body.
“So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month,” the supermodel wrote on Instagram Monday. “But I’m human, and I’m not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little.”
Hadid, 20, who recently walked in Milan Fashion Week, is prepping for another round of runways in Paris this week. But before hitting the catwalk, the blond bombshell wanted to silence the body shamers once and for all.
“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows. No, I don’t think I’m the best at any given show. Yes, I want to have a unique walk but I also know I have to improve,” she said. “No, I’m not the first or the last model of my type in this industry. 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’m just doing my job.”
“I represent a body a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, it’s art; it can never stay the same. It’s 2015,” Hadid continued. “Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body.”
Hadid isn’t the only one proud of her genetics, boyfriend Joe Jonas is too. The former boy-bander captured his lady-love stealing the show during Versace’s spring 2016 presentation on Friday.
“My Girl Just Killed It,” Jonas, 26, captioned on Instagram.
As for her haters, Hadid doesn’t wish them ill-will, just a peaceful state of mind.
“I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they’d rather talk about the things that inspire them over things that bring others down,” she noted. “I love that I can be sexy. I’m proud of it.”
