It’s common knowledge at this point that diversity in body shape isn’t what the modeling industry is exactly known for. But with that said, many models who are naturally thin also face scrutiny and body-shaming. Recently, according to People, there was a ton of public criticism after Hadid lost weight for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The piece also delved into the pressures that come with being a top model for brands like Calvin Klein and DKNY. This comes two weeks after the Instagram photo her makeup artist took went viral for the wrong reason (users claimed she looked too thin).
At just 20-years-old, Hadid says, like most of us, her weight fluctuates and we can so relate. “I really didn’t mean to [lose weight]. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different.”[/quote]
She goes on to talk about insecurities and while we all have them, it’s easy to forget a beautiful, talented model might have some of the same. Remember: we are ALL human.
Regardless, Hadid is dedicated to fitness and staying healthy no matter the weight and that’s something we can definitely get behind.
Well said, Bella. We’re sure she’ll rock the VS Fashion Show like the boss she is!
