22-year-old Gigi Hadid admitted that she suffers from a rare disease Hashimoto — heavy, poorly treatable disease, which is characterized by chronic inflammation of the thyroid gland. The model admitted after received a lot of criticism in his address.
After the show, Jeremy Scott, and Bottega Veneta in the fashion Week in new York, many noted excessive thinness, for which he blamed Hadid. As reported by the star herself when she was just starting her modeling career at age 17, it did not even know about the disease that she is diagnosed. If now it is blamed for excessive thinness, which is common among the models, earlier it was considered too large to work in the modeling business.
“Those who then call me “too big for the model”, just saw the result of the inflammatory process and swelling as a result.”Hadid explains in his open letter on Twitter.
After learning about the diagnosis, the model was able to explain many of the symptoms from which I suffer. Now Gigi gets expert help of doctors and even participated in medical research. “In the last few years, I have good medical care, which helps me deal with the symptoms of the disease, including fatigue, problems with the metabolism and the body’s ability to retain heat. I also took part in a medical study, which helped to balance my endocrine system.»
“Yes, stress and frequent traveling can also affect the appearance, but I ate always the same. Just now my body differently reacts to old processes, which is good for my health. To you I may seem “too thin”. Honestly, the thinness isn’t at all how I want to look, but most importantly, I now feel healthier than before. I’ll never make excuses for how I look. And should do the same and all those whose appearance does not fit the standards of others. And more. Not going to judge anyone, but drugs is not my thing. So stop attributing it to me — just because you don’t understand why my body has changed,” says the model.
How long ago was the diagnosis model is not reported. Sister and mother Gigi suffer another chronic illness — Lyme disease. However, support her in difficult times there is someone. For example, her boyfriend Zane Malik. The girl he loves and has helped in his career. Recall that Zane went in the footsteps of his beloved, and joined the famous brands to create capsule collections. A former member of One Direction offered cooperation Giuseppe Zanotti and Versace Versus. With this, he needed help girlfriends. In an interview with The Sunday Times Style, 23-year-old singer confessed that his 21-year-old girlfriend helped him to create these footwear collection. Especially because she already had experience of cooperation with brands Tommy Hilfiger and Stuart Weitzman in the Shoe industry. “G helped me with the design for Zanotti. She is a true artist, very creative Creator,” said Zane.
Hadid also helped Malik with his campaign, Versus Versace. She has personally conducted a survey, which was attended by Zane and her girlfriend, Adwoa AAA. The capsule collection of the brand will be available only in June this year.
