Gigi Hadid On The Controversial Vogue Italia Cover

This is not the first time Gigi Hadid has stirred up controversy. One of the wealthiest models in the world is the favorite child of controversy. In 2018, Gigi Hadid appeared on the cover of the reputed magazine Vogue. 

She was featured in a visibly darker skin tone. This went on to create controversy with respect to racism and the critics slammed the model for her strikingly different portrayal on the cover. The supermodel took to social media and publicly apologized for hurting the sentiments of the audience. She said-

“Please understand that my control of a shoot 1. Is non existent in terms of creative direction 2. Ends completely when I leave set, and anything done to a photo in post is out of my control fully. The bronzing and photoshop is a style that S.Klein has done for many years and I believe was what was expected from the shoot (to show me in a different way creatively). BUT, although I understand what VogueItalia‘s intentions were, it was not executed correctly, and the concerns that have been brought up are valid. I want to address this for those who were offended by the editing/retouching/coloring of the cover.”

Gigi Hadid further added-

“Please know that things would have been different if my control of the situation was different. Regardless, I want to apologize because my intention is never to diminish those concerns or take opportunities away from anyone else, and I hope this can be an example to other magazines and teams in the future. There are real issues regarding representation in fashion — it’s our responsibility to acknowledge those issues and communicate through them to work towards a more diverse industry.”

With fame and recognition, celebrities are also subjected to trolls and online hatred for the choices they end up making in life. Gigi Hadid’s professional life is as interesting as her personal life.
