Gigi flashes armpit hair for sultry Love advent calendar

2017-12-12 16:29

She’s one of the most famous supermodels in the world.

But Gigi Hadid ditched her razor and opted to go au natural for Love magazine’s advent calendar. Beady-eyed fans, however, noticed a rather unusual detail in the ad.

In the provocative clip released on Instagram on Monday the 22-year-old donned a red Lycra outfit while showing off her impressive boxing skills.

But as she proudly displayed off her toned biceps, the Victoria’s Secret model also exhibited her armpit hair.

The oldest Hadid sister, who was excited to shoot the ad, released a statement about the clip. “I love seeing everyone else's videos. It's celebratory of epic human beings and always pushes boundaries,” says Gigi. “The fashion circle is a family, so the Love advent kind of feels like a holiday yearbook, in a way.”

But people weren’t having it. Instead of embracing the powerful ad, they flocked to Instagram to discuss her underarm hair.

“Her armpit hair was too distracting for me to watch the video,” says one user. “This magazine should have known this before shooting and releasing this video. Just not a clean look!”

Though Gigi was scrutinised for her perceived faux pas, a close source told TMZ that her “armpit hair” was caused by loose fibres and residue left behind by a navy cropped jacket she was wearing on set.  

The model previously opened up about her grooming routine for the Victoria’s Secret show, reports Daily Mail.

“I didn't get a Brazilian. I know that the girls who get the body paint do, but I didn't do body paint, so it wasn't too hard,” she says.
