In the Love magazine’s eagerly awaited 2017 Advent Calendar, Hadid starred in the video for December 11, and the model was seen in a red sports bra with matching boxing shorts and hot wine-hued eyeshadow.
🎄Happy Monday! Day 11 of #LOVEADVENT is @gigihadid “I love seeing everyone else's videos. It's celebratory of epic human beings and always pushes boundaries.” Says Gigi “The fashion circle is a family, so the Love Advent kind of feels like a Holiday Year Book in a way. Headmaster Grand style.” #STAYSTRONG💥Link in bio to full film Director @philpoynter Fashion Editor @sallylyndley Make-up @hungvanngo Hair @cameronjon Casting @bitton and @twodadstwokids Music @nathangregorywilkins and @richardxbm DOP @hashtaghankoff Production @serlinassociates Post Production @millchannel and @millbeautychannel Editor @kateowenedit
After starting with “I’m Gigi Hadid. Today’s free-form day,” the model is seen doing a series of boxing moves: punches and spin kicks, slamming a volleyball and flipping her hair. But when the model put her arms behind her, it looked like the model was sporting hair in her armpits.
Sources now indicate that the fuzz under Gigi’s arms was the result of residue left behind from a cropped navy jacket she wore on-set during the shoot.
But instead of pointing out the powerful image, fans took to Instagram to discuss her body hair. One follower wrote: ‘Does she have hair in her armpits???’, while another fan defended her, writing: ‘YES GIGI YES!’
Another commenter said that he had been ‘distracted’, writing: ‘Her armpit hair was too distracting for me to watch the video. That should of been shaved. This magazine should of known this before shooting and releasing this video. Just not a clean look!’
However, one fan talked back against the criticism: ‘For all of you women commenting rude words and hating on this: You are missing the main point of this campaign.
‘While you’re thinking “shame on Gigi for not shaving her armpits and letting me see them on Instagram (omg I won’t sleep tonite)” you should really feel ashamed of yourself for showing us yet again that unity and unconditional love and support between each other is far from happening until there are these social boundaries that really exist nowhere but in your minds.’
The elder Hadid sister was eager to participate in the Love Advent Calendar, and she released this statement about her shoot. “I love seeing everyone else’s videos. It’s celebratory of epic human beings and always pushes boundaries,” she says. “The fashion circle is a family, so the Love Advent kind of feels like a Holiday Year Book in a way. Headmaster Grand style.”
Also, there’s a reason for the moment with the volleyball, since the spokesperson considered becoming a professional volleyball player before she took to the runway full-time. So, it was a throwback scene for the high fashion model.
