I also think that the quality of US pizza is probably not comparable to German pizza. I've never been to Europe, but I imagine your food as wholesome, nourishing, clean...while food here, specifically pizza, is just the epitome of fat-marinated calorie lard. I imagine when you eat a pizza, you feel full and nourished, but pizza here makes you feel greasy and is formulated to make you want more and more. If you're already greasy and gross (a la Hadashian, or me in my fat days) you're not going to notice the greaseball in your stomach...but if you, Dauphin, came to the US to try some pizza you'd have a stomachache for days.
In my experience, gourmet pizzas at $$$ restaurants are pretty good! Nice thin crust, fresh toppings, doesn't make you feel weighted down. I've tried a few and they only came in the personal pizza size, and were obviously meant for one person. Maybe try those instead of the mom 'n' pop type of fast food place next time? I'm not sure how they compare to European pizzas though.

Maybe, thanks! I just don't even find it appealing anymore, like there are so many things on a $$$ menu I'd rather have. And you've totally tapped into my assumption that the kind of nice, clean ingredients and *real* portion sizes you find at expensive restaurants are just how all restaurants in Europe cook :)

Yes I have a pizza only place 5 mins from me but its thin crust and everything is really fresh. My boyfriend and I will split one and a salad and it gets rid of the pizza cravings without putting us to sleep after.

Gigi just posted this on social media in response to her "haters":

2CDBEBDE00000578-3252045-image-a-19_1443444426320.jpg


Let's break this down, shall we?

"No, I'm not the first or last model of my type in this industry"


God help us all if this is true.

"I have a butt"

No, you have a flat, flabby, middle-aged-mother excuse for a butt.

"I have thighs"

Vlada has thighs. Maartje has thighs. You are the proud owner of two rippling, redwood-sized inverted carrots on which your torso perches uncomfortably.

"I'm not asking for special treatment"

Yeah, you're a shining example of social mobility. I'm sure you would have ascended straight to the rarefied heights of NYFW even if you were the daughter of a longshoreman.

"I'm not going anywhere"

I sort of understand this one, the weight of the fat pouring from your frame is such that only the fire department would be capable of physically removing your lumpen form from the runway.

"If I didn't have the body I do, I wouldn't have the career I do"

*If I didn't have the money I do, I wouldn't have the career I do.*

"I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they'd rather talk about the things that inspire them over the things that bring others down"

*I hope everyone gets to a place in their lives where they stop pointing out my incompetence and obvious unsuitability for my chosen career path with stinging accuracy.*

Yes, you are bigger, yes you have the support of the designers (mostly because the media image), yes you can't fucking walk down the runway, yes your body is not model material but that's not important because neither your face is that good.
A real model without special treatments wouldn't have walked any show with that body, a real model wouldn't make up excuses.

You are a rich kid, not a model. Stop trying to sell yourself like one.

Yes Gigi, indeed all the girls who don't have social visibility but have your/slightly better body and want to model are signed with major agencies. Stop pretend people don't see what you really are.
It's okay if a designer want an actress who doesn't have a perfect body for an advertisement, but you, that are famous just because of daddy's cash, are not allowed to say that you are a hard worker. If you were a hard worker, you were not eating Big Macs.

One thing I don't get is....she has such a drastically different body type than the other models who also obviously fit into sample sizes, so how the hell is she fitting into them?

Oh my goodness. Her attitude in that post is just too much.

You do not "work hard", you had your career handed to you because of your family's wealth and connections. You were hired for those shows (over girls who actually do "work hard") to bring press and attention to the designer. You are not "part of a change", you just have a lazy work ethic.

I think mentioning "omg I still fit into sample sizes u guyZzz" completely undermines her whole point--she makes the excuse of wanting change, but resorts to a gold-standard for sizing to claim her legitimacy as a model.

TL;DR - I want to slap her across her big, fat mouth. But I also don't want to ruin my manicure with grease...

What she doesn't seem to get is that she's getting special treatment, because of her last name and her connections. If she was an average girl with no connections who had to make it on her own (without nepotism), she would NEVER make it as a model at the weight she's at now. She'd have to lose at least 15 lbs. Maybe 20. If a random girl was hired with the body she has now then MAYBE I would say, that designer likes her body type/wants a change. But I don't see any random girls walking the runway or getting magazine spreads with the body she has. Just her and her sister. It's pretty depressing how far your mommy and daddy's names and wealth can get you....

So. Much. This.
She needs to stop pretending it's a change in the industry that's all about promoting "healthy body image" because "it's 2015." Sure, there's a change in the industry, and it's about social media exposure. Do you guys think she knows she's only getting hired because she's a pseudocelebrity? Or do you think she actually believes this?

At least Kate Upton looked kind of cute in the bikinis she was selling, I think she did have some 'it girl' qualities (and such a pretty face). Gigi... Ugh! Like, just 'ugh'. At pretty much every weight there is still an ideal body shape and Gigi is a bigger girl but she isn't a bigger girl with ideal proportions (and big girl ideal proportions are probably more unattainable to the general public as it isn't just dependent in diet and exercise but also things you can't control like your skeletal structure and where you distribute fat). Basically, I do not feel like what she is selling me something unattainable. When I am heavy, I look just as average as she does in those clothes.

I hate the "If you don't like it, don't follow me" argument. THIS is how standards in the fashion industry would become lower. No, everyone in his right mind should call the emperor for what he is: naked, spoiled, entitled (and FAT FAT FAT).
In any societal aspect (art, mass media, fashion, education, health), standards should be reinforced, not adapted to the worst performers. It's like a student who is bad at math expects math to be left outside the curricula. NO, it's the other way around: if you can't perform at least in an average manner, get the fuck out!:tribe:

I agree. It's not like she's engaged in some pro bono work and not looking to profit from exploiting her unique scenario in the present situation. She is bloody making money at the expense of more deserving talent. If she isn't performing given her platform - the audience reserves the right to judgement. The consumer ultimately decides market trends whether she likes it or not.
