Well, there's never a fashion week without a little drama.. right? Though the drama didn't take place on the runway this season it did star one of the biggest models in the business right now, none other than Gigi Hadid. The 22 year old model has been opening and closing for the biggest names in the business, though in recent years she has been making headlines for her drastic weight loss transformation.

The big change began noticeable by fans of Hadid as well as fashion lovers after Marc Jacobs had responded to why he had dressed Hadid in a poncho for one of his shows a couple years back saying "she doesn’t really fit because you know she’s not quite as tall as the other girls, she’s not quite as thin." He quickly tried to take back his comments after he received an insane (but completely warranted) amount of backlash, but once those things are out in the air there's no way to really take them back.

Since then fans have been convinced that the comment was what sparked Gigi's dramatic weight loss and is the reason why she is so thin now, though in comparison to her model mates she now "fits in" on the runway. Before she was considered "curvy" in the eyes of high fashion. While the speculation has been around for a while, it seemed something must have pushed Hadid to a breaking point as she took to Twitter this weekend to rant about the things people have had to say about her body:

Her rant made it clear that the drastic change between her "curvier" self and her now smaller frame was the product of a lifestyle change after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease. The autoimmune disease can often attack your thyroid that controls your metabolism and lead to weight fluctuation and bloating. While we think Gigi has always looked incredible, it was nice to see the model finally speak up for herself and shut the body-shamers out!
