Gigi Hadid's Armpit Hair Causes Quite the Controversy in New Video

Gigi Hadid's Armpit Hair Causes Quite the Controversy in New Video

Sources close to Gigi tell us her "armpit hair" - which was prominently featured in day 11 of LOVE Magazine's Advent calendar video series - was, in fact, residue left behind from the jacket she was wearing on set.

"Dude this is just jumper fluff right", one said while another added: "It's not her armpit hair, it comes from the sweater she wears earlier". Still, it's refreshing to see a more realistic video of a woman working out, rather than a sanitized version.

One fan questioned: "Why is everyone so upset about Gigi Hadid having armpit hair?" This magazine should've known this before shooting and releasing this video. While the 22-year-old garnered plenty of praise for the "brave" move in the comments section of the YouTube video, she was criticized, too, by faceless commenters who called the look "gross".

Her hair is worn off her face in a "wet look" style while she wears heavy eye make-up. You can see under her arms just a bit of fuzz from the new growth in her pits. "It's celebratory of epic human beings and always pushes boundaries." she wrote.

"The Love Advent kind of feels like a holiday year book in a way".

It's brilliant to see someone with Gigi's profile challenging stigmas about female body hair. After opening with "I'm Gigi Hadid".

Still, her killer looks and fashion were not what fans focused on in the video. Now it goes without saying that this is a pretty big deal, even though it shouldn't really be because let's face it, everyone has body hair.

We're not totally sure what that means, but we will say that this display of body hair comes at a time when, as Mic previously reported, more women are discussing their options when it comes to shaving or waxing or doing neither.
