Gigi Hadid Comes Under Blast For Wearing Hijab On The First Ever Edition Of Vogue Arabia
Supermodel Gigi Hadid is coming under serious bashing from angry fans after gracing the cover of the first ever edition of Vogue Arabia in a hijab. The 21 year old model has been accused of ‘cultural appropriation’ by furious fans who are unhappy about her sporting a veil in the magazine shoot.
Gigi who is half-Palestinian and whose father is Muslim got blasted for using the veil, worn by millions of Muslim women around the world, as a ‘trend’ rather than religious dress. Gigi had earlier taking to Instagram to gush about sharing ‘different cultures’ as a ‘beautiful thing’.
She also said being half-Palestinian means the world to her to be on the first-ever cover and she hopes that the magazine and will show another layer of the fashion industry’s desire to continue to accept, celebrate, and incorporate all people and customs and make everyone feel like they have fashion images and moments they can relate to and learn and grow in doing so.’
Gigi who is currently dating singer, Zayn Malik is not new to backlash and we wait to see how she will handle this one. Do you think the shoot is wrong though?
