Gigi Hadid Was Put in a Poncho for Being 'Not Quite as Thin' at Tommy Hilfiger's 2015 Show

Gigi Hadid is one of the most successful and gorgeous models in the world, so this story of her being thrown into a poncho for being “not quite as thin” as other models is quite surprising.

The 21-year-old supermodel walked the runway during Tommy Hilfiger‘s February 2015 fashion show and wore a red poncho that covered up all of her skin.

“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. So they put a red, white and blue poncho on her. It covered a lot of her body, unfortunately,” Hilfiger told Yahoo Style.

Gigi had the last laugh though because “it received millions of hits” and it led Tommy to say, “you know, why don’t we ask her to design a line with us — Gigi, come design this with me, we’ll do a Gigi x Tommy couture line.”

Later that year, Gigi walked in another show for the brand and this time showed off her amazing figure. You can see those photos in the gallery!
