No surprise that she looks 1000000000 times better in that blue diamond-stitched dress than Ghee Ghee
Well, Hanne could leave the house in a Snuggie and a pair of galoshes and somehow still look chic.
Whereas Gigi could be dressed in head to toe couture and still look cheap and tacky.
One of the world's highest-paid models or whale instructor at Sea World who has outgrown her wetsuit? The world will never know.
Oh my gosh!!! I SEE IT NOW!!!
I think that Sea World instructors have more dynamic poses than Gigi....
On that VOGUE cover, Gigi looks like she's tapping her head, trying to remember something. It's SO BAD.

Is this a baby Hanne Gaby? She's so cute.
I love Hanne Gaby for many reasons: longevity in the business, consistency with her weight, her quirky personality and style. That being said, would it kill her to do a few crunches every now and then?
Anyone knows why there aren't any puctures of Tilda at her wedding?
Hanne just came out as intersex (meaning she was born with male and female characteristics). Really brave and lovely thing to do, in my opinion.
"Intersex individuals are born with sex characteristics such as genitals or chromosomes that do not fit the typical definitions of male or female. Up to 1.7% of the population is born with intersex traits, according to the United Nations — a figure roughly equivalent to the number of redheads."
I had no idea that it was that common. Wow, that's so much to deal with so young.
"Kids think 'something was done to me; you felt I wasn’t perfect; I had to be fixed.'"
Thanks for posting.
Just came here to see if that had been posted! How wonderful of her to speak out about it.
I love that she's speaking out about this and while I definitely understand what she felt, I am pretty sure parents make the decision to operate their children because it can cause cancer? But feel free to correct me if I am wrong
I thought this too but I think the point is that there isn't any strong enough evidence to say conclusively that it causes cancer, possibly due to the stigma around it. Obviously if a doctor tells you that your child could get cancer unless they have X surgery you would probably want them to have the surgery, but the article is questioning whether it is actually dangerous or just misunderstood.
@marieebo She called her surgeries "traumatic" and unnecessary. It sounds like the particular procedure she had at 18 was super painful. From a really great WaPo article:
To think that after enduring that horror, she went on to work so hard and create an incredible career for herself...she is an inspiration.
On a lighter note, I think we have the story of her unicorn's guest appearances from earlier in this tread. I don't know the full story, but I seem to understand that unicorns are important symbol for certain communities...
