But still, we can not forget the most important of the year: 2015 is the year in which Gigi Hadid becomes Victoria’s Secret angel, one of the most controversial moments of the year as people inveighed against her throught social media for her”fat” to represent the brand.
Even the Spanish model Blanca Padilla said: “I have no problem with the fact that she´s a girl with curves. I support it. But if I present myself with measures to a casting, they would send me home to lose weight. Most of us have to comply with the measures because otherwise we do not get the job, while others have the privilege to say that designers love their curves. Well, then why do they want you? Perhaps the millions of followers in Instagram have something to do with that too? “.
