Gigi Hadid has been making her mark on the SS16 runway, but she is not exempt to being scrutinised by critics. Clearly tired of the negative (and frankly, unnecessary) negative comments, the 20-year-old beauty slammed her haters in the most gracious way possible.

"No, I don't have the same body type as the other models in shows," she admitted. "No, I don't think I'm the best at any given show... I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before."

"Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment. I'm fitting into the sample sizes. Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body, they don't make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don't change the designers opinions of me."

Actually, we think our opinion of her has changed a little; we think she's even more badass than ever!
