Gigi Hadid is too fat according to Tommy Hilfiger…

Remember when Gigi Hadid created a collection for Tommy Hilfiger? And that she was wearing a poncho because she wasn’t in shape? This is the real story according to the supermodel…

Everybody thought Gigi and Tommy Hilfiger were best friends, but apparently, the designer made some fat-shaming comments.

“Our casting director said, ‘She doesn’t really fit because you know she’s not quite as tall as the other girls, she’s not quite as thin,” Tommy Hilfiger told Yahoo Style. “So they put a red, white, and blue poncho on her. It covered a lot of her body unfortunately, but it received millions of hits.”

In February of 2015, we saw Gigi walking on the Tommy Hilfiger catwalk in a bikini. And now a year later the brand reported that Gigi is “too fat” to show too much skin. Of course, the model could have gained some weight in the meantime. A lot of people, however, we’re very disappointed in the brand.

This is what Gigi has to say about this…
“It’s funny because people think that it’s something that I wasn’t aware of. Back in the day, that would have gone through my mind,” she told Access Hollywood. “But I know that when Tommy said it last week, it was in context of a larger story. … The point of that story. … The point of that story was that Tommy was rooting for me and … regardless of what the stylist of that season said or what he put me in, Tommy wanted me in the show, Tommy was pushing for me and Tommy loved my curves.

So, apparently, it wasn’t that bad and the media may have been exaggerating. Gigi knew this all along, knowing that Mr. Hilfiger supported her.

Thankfully…
