Why Gigi Hadid pulled out of Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show in China

An angel lost her wing on Friday when Gigi Hadid, an American supermodel, pulled out of Victoria’s Secret fashion show which has been scheduled to hold next week in Shanghai.

Her shocking decision comes a few months after she appeared in an online video where she made a slant-eyes face while holding up a Buddha-shaped cookie. Her thoughtless action was heavily criticized by many who believed the gesture was a popular stereotype about Asian facial features.

The 2016 International Model of the Year was accused of racism, and when she announced in August that she would be part of the upcoming Shanghai event, many Chinese netizens warned her not to bother visiting.

Gigi Hadid sued by a Photographer

On Sept. 1, she followed up her apologies with a Weibo post to affirm her love and respect for the people of China.

Although she swore that her gesture was not intended to offend anyone, the latest news of her withdrawal has sparked mixed reactions in the Asian country.

One of her most recent Twitter posts read: “I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to China this year. Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!!”

The decision to pull out of this year’s VS annual event evoked pity, regrets and anger in China with many people feeling her action has been over-flogged by the media even after she tendered an unreserved apology.

“Suddenly I have better feelings about VS. If she had come, I would never buy VS my entire life,” an internet user wrote in the most popular Chinese social media outlet.

“What a pity. I like her a lot,” another one wrote.

There are speculations that the attack on Hadid will affect Victoria’s Secret upcoming show in Shanghai after rumors surfaced that Russia’s Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova, and Ukraine’s Dasha Khlystu will miss the event due to visa problems.

“That’s getting into a Chinese government issue. Victoria’s Secret is not going to comment on that,” a spokesperson for VS told reporters ahead of the show which starts on Monday November 27.

The event will go live on Tuesday (28 November) for global audience.

Hadid, who reportedly made a whooping  US$9 million to grab Forbes No. 5 spot on the list of world’s highest-paid female models last year, may have pulled out of the VS event to avoid a major PR failure.

The company has recorded low earnings and is finding it difficult to absorb challenges from China’s expanding intimate-wear market.

“I have learned to be very careful of how my actions can come off or be portrayed, and I’m hopeful you’ll accept my apology,” Gigi wrote in the bilingual Chinese website.

It is unclear whether the embassy has denied her a visa to China.

Ashley Graham Makes Plus-sized Women Proud On The NYFW Runway.

Ashley Graham may not have a skinny body like Alexandra Ambrosio but the plus-sized model is breaking barriers in the fashion industry.

The 28-year-old American model brought curves to the catwalk as she displayed her latest lingerie collection for young women at New York Fashion Week.

Ashley showed off her range for Canadian retailer Addition Elle, alongside her fellow curvy models – Sabina Karlsson and Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods.

In an interview at the event, Jordyn told Entertainment Tonight: “Ashley Graham definitely made plus-size modelling more mainstream.

“Before it wasn’t as trendy, and as I started to hop on the wave as well, it’s now expanding and we’re really creating a little fashion democracy.”

Ashley doesn’t care about her body size. In fact, she’s making the best out of it without having to worry about what or how she eats. The popular plus-sized model granted an interview to The New York Post at the NYFW event.

“I had chicken fried rice last night, and I had a lot of it,”she said.

“And I was like, ‘Why did I do that?’”

The heavily-built model also revaled her love for Chinese food.

Ashley Graham has appeared on the cover of Elle Quebec, as well as other fashion magazines like VogueHarper’s Bazaar, Glamour, and Elle.

In addition, she appeared in several Levi’s campaigns.

Earlier this year, she became the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Ashley says:

“I was a girl in middle school who never had representation of a body like mine… I also went through high school thinking that I was ugly and fat because I had cellulite and, like, fat in weird places and nobody had a body like mine… And you have seen so many different types of bodies in this runway show, some of them were in clothes, some of them were in lingerie, and young girls get to see what they look like.”

Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 Rated As “Worse Than Bad”, Kylie Jenner Disagrees.

As the New York Fashion Week kicks off in grand style with high expectations, Kanye West presented his Season 4 of Yeezy collection on Roosevelt Island–a location that displays Manhattan on one side and the Queensborough bridge on the other side.

The ‘Graduation’ rapper displayed a bevy of beautiful women, most of them wearing coats, hoodies and high heeled shoes under a sunny September sky, one reason critics think he failed.

Reports confirm that most of the models fainted from the 30 degree heat.

Model passed out in the heat is given water by man in the audience but no one on the team helps. 4:35 AM – 8 Sep 2016

Many invited guests complained of the hot buses provided to ferry them there, and the pencil-heeled shoes given to models were too much of a pain than fashion. Besides, the show started 2 hours behind schedule with models having to wait under blistering heat. Too bad.

Image from Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 show.

While haters have rated Yeezy Season 4 as ‘disastrous’ and the worst so far, sister-in-law Kylie Jenner has been forced to leap in his defense.

One such struggle at the Roosevelt Island show in New York was captured on video with the caption: ‘Something’s wrong.’

As can be seen in the video, that model was struggling to stay upright in the shoes she’d been given.

Notwithstanding the backlash from critics, Kylie found a better way to defend her colleague by posting: ‘Nothing? I’m so proud of her. She didn’t want to disappoint and she f*ckin pulled through and tried her best. She’s awesome.’

Kylie responded again to another tweet which suggested the model was a newbie and simply nervous. In her words: ‘Her heel broke. It’s not her fault.’

Now that’s where the truth came out. If her heel broke and it wasn’t her fault, then it’s Kanye’s.

@jakewoolf re: yeezy season 4, kind of a bummer to be such a huge kanye west fan (and apologist) and witness something pretty much indefensible. 9:04 PM – 8 Sep 2016

The show was so poor that after a few models passed out, the surviving ones were offered some bottles of water by the audience so they could stay alive.

 

However, while people are complaining of the flop, Paper Magazine editorial director Michael Boardman told Entertainment Tonight that it was all in the name of art. He said: ‘It’s a beautiful occasion. I’m a big Yeezy fan.The thing is, he’s an artist. So it’s kind of hard to approach it from a fashion perspective …

‘You have to appreciate it as a happening and an experience.’

The event was exclusively livestreamed on Tidal.

The Washington Post admits that despite all that transpired at the show, Kanye West is still admired “for his desire to deliver interesting, enduring clothes that don’t cost a fortune” – even with a pair of shoes costing more than $600 and a parka priced above $1,000.

Yes, Yeezy was a disaster. No, we don’t need this many articles about it. Best thing to do is keep quiet, and decline the invite next year.

Fashion Taboo At “The Young Pope” Venice Film Festival.

On September 3, “The Young Pope”, a new TV series was unveiled at the Venice Film Festival.

The world premier event was held in Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema at the Lido di Venezia.

Wondering who they are?

Set in the modern-day, The Young Pope is a drama which centers on a manipulative and troublemaker Pope, determined to upset the establishment.

Law plays the young and charming Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII, whose election might seem the result of a simple and effective media strategy by the College of Cardinals.

But, appearances can be deceiving. Inside the Vatican, the mysterious and contradictory Pius XIII is at once shrewd and naive, old-fashioned and very modern, doubtful and resolute, ironic, hurt and ruthless.

As Jude walks the long path of human loneliness to find a God for mankind, he’s also seeking one for himself.

Now, here comes the attraction for the day.

Among those in attendance were Guilia Salemi and Dayane Mello.

The beautiful models left nothing to our imagination, in their X-rated “bridals”. A look at the photographer’s face on the right side of the picture, says it all.

It’s not about the ample cleavage unleashed, a closer look reveals some visibly tacky bikini lines that didn’t help matters at the event.

You might want to say something about their outfits.

Gigi Hadid And Kendall Jenner Join Forbes 2016 Top 5 Highest-earning Models.

Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen,36, has retained her title as the world’s highest-paid supermodel with Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid breaking into the top 5.

The Brazilian modeling icon who announced her retirement from the runway in 2014, has skyrocketed in her earnings thanks to lucrative fashion deals with top brands like Chanel and Carolina Herrera. Her lingerie and skincare line brings an added income to other 5-star endorsements.

Gisele topped this year’s Forbes magazine’s annual earnings list, smiling to the bank with a whooping USD 30.5 million between June, 2015 and June, 2016.

Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner and close pal Gigi Hadid made it big as part of the new generation models who are mainly using the social media to advance their careers.

Kendall Jenner is ranked third in the overwhelmingly all-white list of models. She earned $10 million over the past year, increasing her total balance by 150 percent.

According to reports, the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’ star has “the highest Instagram following on the list and was owner of the most liked post on the social networking site until recently”.

Image shows Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

Similarly, Kendall’s close friend and fellow social media powerhouse Gigi Hadid earned $9 million (£6.8million) over the past year.

Hadid has over 22 million Instagram followers, and this is her first time in the Forbes list.

Image: Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

Natalie Robehmed, a staff writer at Forbes, told the Independent: “The majority of the list is overwhelmingly white, which reflects the lack of diversity in campaigns.

“A recent survey of Spring print ads found 78% of models used were white, compared with just eight per cent Black or four per cent Asian models featured.

“Despite the rising fame of plus-sized models such as Ashley Graham, no plus-sized model earned the $4 million cut off necessary to make this year’s ranking.

“While models of colour and models who aren’t ‘straight-sized’ do find work in editorial shoots, they still rarely book the high-paying contracts that lead to a spot on this list.”

Street Fashion: When Models Hit The Streets.

A lot of things happen when models leave the runway for busy streets. Check out these models on a debut on behalf of Karl Lagerfeld’s “Cruise” line for Chanel on the Paseo del Prado street in Havana, Cuba, May 3, 2016.

A Woman’s Best Body Shape.

No doubts, women are beautiful creatures. Wonderful and amazing in different sizes or shapes yet the world seem to favor some and criticize others.

It’s still a puzzle why the fashion industry as well as beauty models have made it look like a woman must be thin in order to be accepted as beautiful. This is discrimination and hate against plus-sized women who are equally lovely in their own ways.

A woman’s body shape often change over time though a few may remain almost the same. Whether the change is due to puberty, childbirth, weight loss or weight gain, we are often left at a loss as to how to compliment or even understand what’s  the best body shape with disregard to what the beauty industry wants us to believe.

Russian Models On The Runway With AK 47’s.

These days, modelling has changed from something that used to be for thin, sexy, beautiful and fragile girls; the runways have been overtaken by female soldiers – at least in Russia, for now.

As if the country is on red-alert against terrorism, some of the models were seen cat-walking with AK 47’s.

Now it might just be safe to wear armors on the streets.
