Gigi Hadid's Afro Vogue cover receives major backlash (PHOTOS)
Gigi Hadid is riding high on her modeling success, but her new Vogue cover is not winning her any new fans.
Hadid, who is also walking in today’s Victoria's Secret fashion show as an Angel for the first time, is featured on the fold-out cover of Vogue Italia in various candy colors of Afro wigs.
She is absolutely beautiful, no matter what color hair she sports, but Twitter users were quick to point out the racial disparity.
Hadid is likely far too busy filming the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York alongside her bestie, Kendall Jenner, today to notice the hubbub about the photos on Twitter.
"Gigi can't sleep. She's a combination of both excited and incredibly nervous," a source told Hollywood Life ahead of the show.
"She's been working out like crazy, sometimes three times a day, and is concerned she's too curvy, so she hasn't been eating too much either."
And Hadid herself said being chosen to walk in the iconic show was a dream come true.
"Couldn't keep back my tears!!!! Anyone that grew up with me knows that getting this show has been a dream of mine forever!" she wrote on Instagram.
"I'm so overwhelmed with joy, it won't stop bringing me to tears. Thank you all for your love & support. On cloud nine," she added on Twitter.
