Were Gigi Hadid’s Moles Photoshopped Off This Cover?

It’s safe to say that Gigi Hadid looks INCREDIBLE on the cover of Vogue China.

The 20-year-old model shows off her toned tum in a cropped jumper, which has been paired with white shorts and a metallic choker necklace.

But fans reckon there’s something a little sinister about the image.

Gigi Hadid’s usually has moles across her stomach. Hmmm


When Gigi uploaded it to Instagram, people started questioning whether her moles had been Photoshopped off her body and her skin had been lightened.

One follower wrote: ‘Wow they totally covered up all your beauty marks on your stomach,’ while another mused: ‘Her moles are actually really sexy. They shouldn’t photoshop them [sic].’

Hmmm. Now, Gigi’s known for having a number of moles across her stomach, neck and chest, and they definitely can’t be seen in the photo.

Gigi Hadid also has moles across her neck and chest


When it came to her skin tone, comments included: ‘They made you look like a geisha,’ and: ‘When you use the wrong color of foundation.’ Eek.

But of course, this could’ve just been down to lighting.

Is Gigi Hadid’s skin lighter on the cover?


Whatever the case, Gigi’s been very open in the past about not conforming to the usual model stereotype.

After being taunted about her ‘curves’ (yep, SERIOUSLY) back in September, she shared the heartfelt post: ‘No, I don’t think I have the same body type as the other models in shows. No, I don’t think I am the best at any given show. Yes, I want a unique walk but I also know I have to improve.

Gigi Hadid penned this note last year


‘No, I’m not the first or last model of my type in this industry. You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.

‘I’m just doing my job. I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, this is art; it can never stay the same.

Gigi Hadid doesn’t think she’s a conventional model


‘It’s 2015. But if you’re not one of those people, don’t take your anger out on me. Yes I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment.’
