Gigi Hadid has slammed “petty complaining” on social media after she was criticised for wearing a sporty outfit.

Earlier in the week, a paparazzi picture showing the model wearing black leggings, a sweater and white trainers from her Reebok collection, along with a black padded jacket, began circulating on social media.

In a since-deleted post on Twitter, one user shared a scathing opinion on Gigi’s off-duty style and wrote: “She’s such a natural beauty… idk (I don’t know) what happened to her iconic street style tho (sic).”

According to E! News, another Twitter user responded: “What happened is called Mimi,” referencing Gigi’s stylist, Mimi Cuttrell.

Blasting her critics, the 24-year-old clapped back and told the online trolls that their “unrealistic expectations” weren’t going to influence how she dressed.

“You guys need to calm (the f**k) down sometimes. It’s called stepping out to do one errand, not dressing for your approval. Your unrealistic expectations and petty complaining all the time about my style or not being sexy enough isn’t going to make me dress different,” Gigi fired on Twitter.

“Not just talking about this specific comment. You all talk about empowering women. I support and empower women that show skin and that don’t,” the beauty later added. “It’s about choice. I show skin when I want to and still feel sexy covered head to toe & will continue to do so. Over the snarky comments.”

Gigi also seemingly responded to another user who had removed their negative comment on her outfit and said those blaming her stylist for her outfit choices were very much mistaken.

“I like what I wear and wear it for that reason. It’s not about a stylist, it’s how I’m choosing to express myself,” she posted. “Your opinion isn’t going to change that. Those of you who feel this way should focus your energy on praising those whose style you love. Peace.”

Olivia Newton-John has urged Gigi Hadid to buy her original Sandy costume from the film Grease to help raise funds for the singer’s cancer centre in Australia.

The Xanadu singer is auctioning off a treasure trove of movie and video costumes to raise funds for her Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, and after spotting the model in a Sandy replica for Halloween, she’s asking her to cough up for the real deal.

“I saw a picture of Gigi Hadid, who is one of the most gorgeous girls, and she was wearing my outfit,” Olivia told Access Daily. “So I sent her a message. I said, ‘Gigi, buy the original. You can get it at the auction!'”

The wardrobe items from the films Grease and Xanadu and the Physical music video are set to go under the hammer at an upcoming Julien’s Auctions event, which will be held at The Standard Oil Building in Beverly Hills and online at juliensauctions.com during the company’s Icons & Idols sale at the weekend.

The highlight of the auction will be the iconic black leather jacket and skintight pants Olivia wore as Sandra Dee for the climax of Grease, when she performed You’re the One That I Want with John Travolta.

Other items from Grease include Olivia’s original script from the film, her custom-made 1950s-inspired petal pink point d’esprit lace gown she wore to the 1978 premiere in Los Angeles, and a custom ‘Pink Ladies’ jacket presented to her by the film’s cast and crew.

Anwar Hadid: ‘I sew my own clothes’

Anwar Hadid sews his own clothes to keep his personal style unique to him.

The 20-year-old, who is the face of Valentino’s new Born in Roma Uomo fragrance, revealed he wanted to be a designer before he became a model and still puts his skills into practice to keep his style unique.

“I sew my own clothes. I’ve always loved all different types,” Anwar told People magazine. “I like to express myself in whatever I feel suits my energy at that point. I just kind of do whatever makes me happy. Everyone is allowed to express themselves freely.

“I learned a lot about design through modelling. I wanted to be a designer in 2014 before I wrote music or modelled or anything like that. I have a project coming out in the next couple of months with shirts, which is exciting.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Anwar revealed the advice he got from his big sisters, models Gigi and Bella, when he started out in the industry.

“Try to be yourself and be confident and comfortable. Also, wear the clothes and don’t let them wear you. For modelling, you’re an extension of someone else’s creation and vision. You have to honour that,” he explained.

While his career begins to skyrocket, Anwar makes sure he takes time out to relax.

“I use essential oils. I put some in my hand (and smell it) or in a diffuser. That’s something I like to do every day. I’m really drawn to eucalyptus and lavender,” he said, before adding that he deals with fame by surrounding himself with family and friends.

“Honestly, I feel like I’m still the same person that I’ve been since I was young,” he insisted.

Nina Dobrev has dressed up as the Chanel runway show prankster for Halloween.

French YouTube star Marie Benoliel, known as Marie S’Infiltre, crashed the fashion house’s spring/summer 2020 during Paris Fashion Week at the start of October and was eventually escorted off the runway by an unimpressed Gigi Hadid.

And on Monday, The Vampire Diaries actress teamed up with her pal, writer and producer Lane Cheek, to recreate the headline-grabbing moment for the spooky holiday, with the pair showing off their efforts on Instagram.

Like the prankster, the 30-year-old wore a black and white houndstooth tweed skirt suit with a black blouse underneath and a black hat, while Cheek channelled Hadid by sporting a dirty blonde wig, a navy top and black hot pants over sheer black tights.

They also recreated some of the photos taken from the incident and posted them alongside the real ones, with Dobrev adopting a shocked look as Cheek places one hand on her shoulder.

“‘They said I couldn’t pull off the impossible but look at me now! The most prestigious catwalk in the world.’ – Marie @gigihadid @mariesinfiltre,” Dobrev wrote in the caption.

Benoliel appeared to be flattered by the costume as she shared one of Dobrev’s photos on her own Instagram page and wrote in the caption, “Best Halloween costume by @nina.”

Dobrev also received praise from her fellow actresses in the comments, with Kaley Cuoco writing, “Your costumes are epic!”, Claire Holt posting, “You’re so good at this it’s a gift”, and Rebecca Rittenhouse commenting, “Your costumes are so relevant.”

On Friday, Dobrev had dressed up as Bad Guy singer Billie Eilish by wearing a baggy orange Louis Vuitton jumper and matching shorts, bulky jewellery, long green nails and spraying green dye in her roots. She also evoked the teen singer’s When the Party’s Over video by having her face painted to make it look like she had been crying black tears.

Bella Hadid wishes she had posed for the cover of Vogue Netherlands sooner because then her late grandmother would have been able to see it.

The American model posted images from the shoot on Instagram on Tuesday and revealed in the accompanying caption that she learned her beloved “Oma” had passed away as she was wrapping up the session over the summer.

“This cover is very bittersweet,” Bella wrote. “I’ve always wanted to do my Dutch vogue cover in Holland to represent my family, my mother, my cousins, my aunt, uncle and especially my Oma.

“On this day, I got a phone call from my mom right when we finished our last shot. She said Oma passed that afternoon. This was one of the worst phone calls and all I wished, had I done it sooner, she would have been able to see it to tell me what she thought (sic). I hope she is proud of me. I love you Oma and Mama. This was such a memorable day in so many ways.”

Bella also expressed gratitude to photographer Sean Thomas, editor-in-chief Rinke Tjepkema and “the team for being so great”.

Ans van den Herik, who is Yolanda Hadid’s mother, lost her battle with cancer at the age of 78 in August. Bella and her sister Gigi Hadid attended her funeral in Rotterdam last month.

The 23-year-old’s Vogue shoot took place in and around Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, with one shot showing her positioned beneath the iconic Dutch painter Rembrandt’s 1633 portrait of Remonstrant preacher Johannes Wtenbogaert.

The issue is a tribute to the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death, with the artist having died on 4 October 1669.

Gigi Hadid has released her second apparel collection with Reebok.

The American model first announced her partnership with the sports giant last year, and her first collection debuted in February.

Now, Gigi is gearing up to drop the Reebok x Gigi Hadid fall/winter 2019 line, with the range comprised of convertible vests, one-shoulder sport bras, and tracksuits. It is focused on the outdoors, with an earthy colour scheme based around khaki and pale blue.

“Everything about the outdoors inspires me,” she said of the line, according to Teen Vogue. “The light, the colours, the energy, the complexity. My season two collection is meant to support you, work with you, work with the temperatures, with the environment.

“Boundless to me is the feeling of nature – being able to breathe and look at the sky and feel limitless. When you find what makes you feel free, then you can really do anything.”

The collection also includes a new DMX 2K Zip sneaker available in a sandy or white colour scheme.

Images from the campaign see Gigi posing in a sandy desert, rocking the pale blue, rust and cream tracksuit from her collection.

The Reebok x Gigi Hadid capsule line will be available from 24 October on Reebok’s website.

Gigi, 24, first joined forces with Reebok in 2016 as part of the label’s #PerfectNever initiative, and the news of her debut collection for the brand was announced in November last year.

The apparel line, which was priced between $35 and $130 (£26 – £100), featured pieces such as ’90s-inspired T-shirts, leggings, bodysuits, parkas and trackpants along with the Aztrek Double sneaker.

Bella Hadid gets stressed out if she has a day off work.

The 22-year-old model, who has walked the runway for the likes of Tom Ford, Dior, Chanel, Givenchy and Versace, has become so used to her fast-paced lifestyle that she becomes irritated when she isn’t working.

“I’m really never not working, so I don’t think downtime is a part of my life anymore. I’ve grown to understand everything in my life is fast-paced and that slowing things down kind of stresses me out,” she told Marie Claire magazine.

“If I have any spare time, I’m saying, ‘Where are all my jobs?’ Then I have to tell myself to calm down because it’s been only a day and a half. I actually fell asleep in the makeup chair once while (Dior make-up artist) Peter Philips was doing my makeup. I woke up with stars, stripes, and big eyeliner all over my face.”

The model, who credits Peter with transforming her make-up routine, also revealed that when she first began her career back in 2014, she didn’t even own an eyebrow pencil.

“I don’t even think I owned an eyebrow pencil when I started. I’ve brought (Peter’s) tricks into my everyday routine, mostly how to sculpt my face by accentuating little features. It’s pretty simple: just a good contour and a little rosy blush. It takes a lot for me to even put on mascara. My night look is pretty similar, but I may add a touch of gold highlighter,” she explained.

And while Bella has plenty of friends including Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and her sister Gigi Hadid, she confessed she very rarely goes out.

“I rarely go out anymore if it’s not for work. That means it’s usually me getting my glam done at my house before an event, and then my best friends will come listen to music and hang out,” Bella stated.

Chanel prankster: ‘Gigi Hadid was quite aggressive’

Prankster Marie S’Infiltre has claimed Gigi Hadid was “quite aggressive” when she removed her from the catwalk after she crashed the Chanel show earlier this week.

The French YouTuber, real name Marie Benoliel, pulled the stunt during creative director Virginie Viard’s show for the French luxury brand at the Grand Palais as part of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday.

Marie leapt onto the runway wearing a black and white two-piece, which she claims is vintage Chanel, in front of the star-studded audience, which featured the likes of Cardi B, Anna Wintour, and Anna Dello Russo.

Gigi blocked the prankster from continuing to walk the runway and put her hand on her shoulder as she escorted her off the catwalk.

Now, Marie is claiming that the 24-year-old supermodel was “quite aggressive” and didn’t understand that she was simply paying tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld.

In an email to Elle.com, she complained that she thought Gigi might pull her hair and yell “as if we were school girls”, but refused to divulge what was said during their confrontation.

“She clearly did not understand my comic approach. Gigi is obviously sublime and a fashion icon and I understand her reaction somewhat and continue to love her in spite of that,” Marie shared.

The prankster said her career is inspired by Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, and she enjoys immersing herself in public events “to show how funny some situations and sometimes extreme behaviours are.”

“I am not making fun of people, I am pointing how silly some people can be when they lack distance and thinking,” Marie insisted.

After the show, a spokesperson for Chanel told AFP: “We are not going to make a drama out of it… We would have preferred if it hadn’t happened.”

They also said “this is not the first time that she has done this”, referring to Marie crashing Etam’s Paris Fashion Week presentation last week.

Gigi Hadid confronted a prankster who stormed onto the runway during Chanel’s spring/summer 2020 show on Tuesday morning.

Creative director Virginie Viard unveiled her latest line for the French luxury brand at the Grand Palais as part of Paris Fashion Week, with the show attracting the likes of Cardi B, Anna Wintour, and Anna Dello Russo.

However, as the models paraded on the set, designed to resemble a Paris rooftop, a woman dressed in a tweed suit and black hat scrambled through the seats and got up onto the raised catwalk and joined the finale.

After walking in line with the models for a short time, the gatecrasher decided to take a different route around the rooftop and was stopped by a stern-faced Hadid, who ushered her to the edge of the set and towards the exit, where several security members were waiting.

The prankster is believed to be Marie Benoliel, known as Marie S’Infiltre, a YouTube personality with 195,0000 followers on Instagram. Representatives for Chanel and Hadid are yet to comment on the incident.

Yet, clips of Hadid’s reaction are already making the rounds on social media, with many fans praising the 24-year-old for remaining calm under pressure.

“Go Gigi!” on Instagram user wrote, while another added, “People need to seriously respect the jobs of others. The designers, organisers and models work waaaay (sic) too hard, just for attention seekers to try to ruin everything on a very special day for them. Gigi did the right thing!”

Besides the runway drama, the rest of Viard’s presentation went smoothly, with Karl Lagerfeld’s successor offering a range of separates in Chanel’s signature tweed fabric, as well as nautical stripes, touches of blue denim, and evening gowns with tiered ruffled skirts.

Jeremy Scott has paid tribute to Pablo Picasso for Moschino’s spring/summer 2020 collection.

The fashion designer unveiled his latest line for the Italian label as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday night, and true to form, offered up an extravagant spectacle.

Honouring the life and artwork of the Spanish painter and sculptor, the presentation opened with a model walking the runway in a brightly coloured dress which evoked Picasso’s early Fauvist-inspired art.

Brightly coloured printed suits and graphic coats with sharp shoulders followed, with dresses resembling the flowing curves and abstract shapes of the icon’s first Cubist pieces.

Referencing Picasso’s heritage, one model sported the red cape and black hat of a matador, along with blue leggings and shiny gold jewellery, while another carried a black purse with the words “Bull chic” splashed across the front.

Joan Smalls rocked a red and gold dress inspired by the embellished outfits worn by bullfighters, and another model showed off a red polka dot dress with ruffled sleeves, similar to the worn of flamenco dancers.

A highlight of the collection was a black gown dotted with sequin flower appliques, with the look worn by Stella Maxwell, as was a black velvet dress with architectural shoulders that was dotted with blue and green beads and had pink lining in the skirt.

Yet, somehow Scott managed to turn the theme up another notch towards the end of the presentation, having Kaia Gerber walk the catwalk in an outfit shaped into a guitar, as influenced by Picasso’s still life paintings, another model donned a sequin dress which referred to the artist’s groundbreaking 1907 work Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, and others sported pieces that looked like actual gold Baroque picture frames.

To conclude, Bella Hadid rocked a pink and blue sequin jumpsuit which alluded to Picasso’s paintings of harlequins, Irina Shayk dazzled in a gold and black dress with violin motif, and Gigi Hadid was Moschino’s “bride” in an over-the-top white dress with huge veil and dove motifs attached to the front.
