Gigi Hadid Is Under Fire For Instagram Post About Mykonos | Clozette


Being a celebrity is full-time work. To misquote Spiderman, "With great social media clout, comes great responsibility." So when Gigi Hadid uploaded a controversial Instagram post about her not so good experience during her vacation in Greece, the internet wasn't very happy. 


Here's basically what happened: Gigi Hadid and her companions were robbed during their vacation in Mykonos Island in Greece. They were there to celebrate the birthday of her sister Alana Hadid, and one night they came home to their rental villa and saw the room in disarray with jewellery and other valuables nowhere to be found, according to TMZ. As you can imagine, anyone would be pissed in this situation. But the supermodel took it a step further and posted a 'PSA' on her second Instagram account (or finsta, as the cool kids call it). 



In her post, she declares that she's "never going back" and advised her followers to "spend money elsewhere." In a matter of minutes, Gigi's Instagram (her main account included) got swarmed with critical comments calling her post as "slander" to the island and the country to an extent. Others also pointed out that Gigi could have been more considerate since Greece's economy heavily relies on tourism and that her post could have a serious negative impact on local businesses.


To be fair, Mykonos, although mostly safe for tourists, has had several reported thefts and villa break-ins in the past. Even travel sites like TripAdvisor have community threads discussing these safety concerns. And that's why some people thought Gigi Hadid posting about it is a good thing because it can mobilise authorities on the island to take more precautions. 


Today, Gigi responded to critics detailing what happened to defend her post. "I was robbed along with more than 30 houses that night, some to gunpoint. It was not possible to contact any form of law enforcement except through my local security who happened to have a contact," she says. Well, that's really quite traumatising.



But aside from the robbery incident, it looks like Gigi had fun for most of the trip. Maybe she could have shared those good experiences too instead of writing off Mykonos completely. What do you think, does she deserve the hate or not?

Wearing socks with shoes? Oh yes, please. Now before you raise your eyebrows at us and say, “What are we, in second grade?” hear us out first. Wearing socks with shoes can be one of the hottest trends to go big in the coming months. 


Of course, we’re not pertaining to just any pair of socks; we’re looking at the fancier version that can instantly give our outfit that much-needed oomph. Some of the most fashion-forward personalities in Hollywood have bravely donned socks along with their heels and we must say, they look good. Our favourite? Hunter Schafer of Euphoria fame and her sheer fancy sock with white booties combo. So we’re taking out a page out of her fashion book. Here are ways to make fancy socks work for us as well.

Choose colours that pop


If you’re wearing something basic like an LBD or a simple jeans and shirt ensemble, why not give it a little zhoosh by wearing a bright-coloured sock with your chosen footwear? Pick something fresh on the eyes like mint green or maybe mustard yellow shoes which could actually go well even when worn with some black strappy sandals.

Thigh-high socks are still ok


Going somewhere cold but have to wear that little black dress? No problem! Just put on nice coloured thigh-high socks and pair them with your favourite sandals and you’re good to go. Just remember to keep the colour a little neutral on this one so as not to cut off the illusion of your long gams.

Go frilly


There’s nothing wrong with second-grade fashion as long as you do it right. If you wish to wear the frilly socks you loved so much growing up, we say why not?. Make sure to keep the rest of your outfit soft and simple for this one. Instead of wearing a short skirt, it’s best to pair it with a flowy A-line that goes below the knees. Pair the skirt with a nice simple top and you got yourself a nice preppy outfit.

One thing that we can never have enough of? Shoes. We know we're all guilty as charged for storing a shameless number of heels, boots and trainers. Looking to add more to your collection? Look no further than square-toed shoes, which appears to be taking the industry by storm. Get a stiletto, mule, or sandals — they all look impeccable with any outfit. Take these Clozetters' looks as examples.
