Gigi Hadid Thinks Social Media Has Taken Away The “Dumb Model” Stereotype

Not too long ago Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were slammed by Rebecca Romijn for not being real models, rather, being ‘social media stars’. However, Gigi has recently shared that she believes the role social media plays in her modelling career is incredibly beneficial.

In a recent interview with Mashable, the model said that social media has “taken the dumb model stereotype away.”

“We’ve just been given a gift as a generation of being able to show our own personality and have so much control over the person we are to the public, and not just being a face on a page.”

Normally all we see is models jetting from one country to another in glamour clothes attending lavish parties, but now with more and more models sharing their personal lives on Instagram we get to see life behind the glam.

Gigi could be on to something!
