Gigi Hadid Showed Off Her Armpit Hair in Her Love Magazine Advent Video

We’re all for mere mortals and celebrities alike embracing their body hair, and the latest celeb to show off her armpit hair is none other than… Gigi Hadid.


The supermodel is the latest star of Love Magazine‘s annual LOVE Advent Calendar, which features an array of famous faces from Kendall Jenner to Rita Ora in celebration of the holidays each year. But Hadid’s surprising accessory comes in the form of unshaven armpits, and we love the body positive statement she’s making in the process.

In Day 11 of the notorious advent calendar, Hadid can be seen wearing athletic gear from her own line with Tommy Hilfiger, and while she’s rocking a stunning smoky eye and the super on-trend wet hair look, it’s her armpit hair that makes the fiercest statement of all.

Hadid can be seen punching, jabbing, kicking, and serving her signature supermodel looks and a volleyball, but we love that she showed off her armpit hair (and those epic bicep muscles!) while telling fans to “stay strong.”

Of her video, Hadid says, “I love seeing everyone else’s videos. It’s celebratory of epic human beings and always pushes boundaries. The fashion circle is a family, so the Love Advent kind of feels like a Holiday Year Book in a way. Headmaster Grand style.”

It might seem like a minute detail, but when a mainstream supermodel like Hadid embraces her natural body hair, it sends the message to women that they don’t have to adhere to strict societal standards of beauty by shaving when they don’t want to, and that every woman is sexy/beautiful/accepted unaltered.

Hadid joins the ranks of fellow fierce women like Miley Cyrus, Madonna, and Paris Jackson, who have all shown off their armpit hair in the past. We love that these ladies are shattering the notion of women needing to be hair-free at all times and think it’s fantastic to see them rocking their natural selves as they please.

What do you think of Gigi showing off her armpit hair? Tell us @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
