Contrary to popular belief, Gigi Hadid, did not intentionally lose weight for her recent appearance at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris. The model, 21, recently revealed that she suffers from the autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s, also known as hypothyroidism. In Hashimoto’s the thyroid gland is unable to produce enough hormones which control metabolism. Speaking with Elle, Hadid shared, “its now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn’t want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that’s good.” The avid boxer and spokesperson for Reebok’s #PerfectNever campaign credits her incredible figure to hard work and good eating habits. “I love eggs! In general I like fresh ingredients. I’m not a salad and meat type of person; to me, that’s boring. I also like making tomato soup from scratch with grilled cheese dippers on the side. If I can cook it with ingredients that I know are good, then I’ll eat anything.”
At Chanel’s Métiers d’Art runway show in Paris, models returned to an era of romance, civility, and grace. Hairstylist, Sam McKnight, accessorized loose ponytails with brightly-colored silk flowers, complimenting feminine, rose-kissed lips; yet, the unexpected appearance of stark, white-rimmed eyes, by Tom Pecheux (who created sultry looks at last week’s Victoria’s Secret show) may be Spring’s boldest statement. Karl Lagerfeld muse, Cara Delevingne, led the procession, followed by a trio of famous offspring: Georgia May Jagger, Lily-Rose Depp, and Sofia Richie.
A day after it was announced that Amy Schumer will star in the upcoming live-action “Barbie” film for Sony, Cindy Crawford posted an image of her own Barbie on Instagram. The supermodel, 50, captioned the image, “Just living in a Barbie world.” Crawford received her namesake Mattel doll (which sported a Roberto Cavalli ensemble) in 2015. According to a report on Fox News, the upcoming film’s plot revolves around Barbie’s getting kicked out of Barbieland for not being “perfect enough,” and follows her adventures in the “real world.” Mattel has received much criticism for its unrealistic portrayal of the female form. In 2015, it introduced its Fashionista line to represent a variety of ethnicities, shapes, and sizes. Schumer, who is the embodiment of real world beauty, was the perfect choice to lead the comedy. After the announcement, however, she became the victim of body-shaming. Since when is size 6-8 considered “plus sized”?
