GIGI UNVEILED!

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017
     Gigi Hadid has never belied her Middle Eastern heritage.  The daughter of Palestenian immigrant, Mohamed Hadid, has been unveiled as the cover star of the first print edition of Vogue Arabia.  “In one poised photograph, she communicates a thousand words to a region that’s been waiting far too long for its Vogue voice to speak,” says the Editor-in-Chief, Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz.  On Instagram, Gigi shared, “Being half-Palestinian, it means the world to me to be on the first-ever cover(s) of @voguearabia, and I hope that this magazine will show another layer of the fashion industry’s desire to continue to accept, celebrate, and incorporate all people & customs and make everyone feel like they have fashion images and moments they can relate to.”  “The collage of countries across the Arab world are long-deserving of a place in fashion history,” declares Abdulaziz, “and there’s no better first ‘face’ to lead the charge for Vogue Arabia than Gigi, a model who defines tomorrow’s entrepreneurial and dynamic generation.”  Available on March 5 across the MENA region and international locations such as London, Paris, and Milan.

 

GIGI’S FIGHT WITH HYPOTHYROIDISM

Thursday, December 8th, 2016
gigi-hadidContrary 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.”
