This week famous Model Gigi Hadid strikes back and addresses negative remarks/comments on body image and body shaming. She states in her statement,
“No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in the shows,” Hadid wrote on her account. “I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before.”Saying, “Yes, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment,” the model is not letting the haters get to her.”Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers opinions of me.” (http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/29/entertainment/gigi-hadid-body-shaming-feat/)
She’s walked the runways for so many famous high-fashion Designers like Chanel, Versace and many more. But she speaks the truth and is honest. She doesn’t looking like other models and she’s more volumptuous than most models seen on the runway. If designer want her to be in their show, she’s in it, if not, then she’s not. Simple has that. But to be honest, why would she want to be like every other model out there…?? I mean her look is what sets her apart from others. We are all created different and beautiful– am I right?? We are all beautiful in our own ways and in our own right.
Negative comments in regards to body shaming and body image has been prevalent within our society for many years now. It’s an endless cycle that never ends, and it’s really sad. We shouldn’t succomb to the hate, we should go with the times and change our way of thought. We need to stop being negative and learn to love ourselves and one another. Everyone has a right to freedom of speech, but at what cost. We are all made differently and unique in our own way. God made us the way we are and we should be proud of it. We should all learn something from this. We were all created different for a reason, making us unique, original, and unlike anyone else. I believe in what Gigi Hadid says, where we should look to inspire one another rather than putting others down. What good does that do, when you put others down……?
Some of us are tall and thin, some of us have curves, we are beautiful no matter what size or shape. We should be proud and should be able to love the skin we are in. People are ALWAYS going to make comments, its part of life and nature. Is it ever right– the negative that people say, NO! But we can’t control what people say or what comes out, whether positive or negative. Like Gigi Hadid, we have to learn to stick up for ourselves and just say, screw the haters! Haters are gonna hate, no matter what. But who cares, you are beautiful, remember that! Some people say things because they have nothing better to do with their time, or they themselves have their own insecurities. Whatever the case may be, let them say what they want, because only you and those that matter knows what’s true, and that’s what matters most.
We are who we are, and Gigi Hadid says just that and more in her own words and truth. We shouldn’t feel the need or the pressure to change who we are or what we look like just because people say so, or it’s what society tells us to be. Be who you are and don’t let others hold you down and make you feel like you have to be something you’re not. Stay true to yourself, and always love YOURSELF, and the skin your in. Remember it’s the only way to be, I know it’s easier said than done but it’s the truth. Love yourself, and hopefully one day, others will see the beauty in that. All I gotta say in response to Gigi’s post is , Well said, and Thank you. Couldn’t have said it any better! You go Girl!
What makes you feel comfortable and beautiful?
Love the Skin your in!
Haters Gon’ Hate, but I know I love the skin I’M in!
