Gigi Hadid drops out of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: 'I'm so bummed'

Gigi Hadid drops out of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: 'I'm so bummed'

On Thursday, Gigi Hadid announced on Twitter that she won't be walking in the fashion show.

During the gig she also donned a sunflower gown - supposedly symbolic of the Sunflower Student Movement, which protested a Chinese trade agreement in 2014.

A source told Page Six that Perry was initially cleared to perform in Shanghai, but Chinese officials changed their minds after learning of a 2015 incident in Taiwan where the singer wore a sunflower dress in support of the country.

Earlier this week, leaked graphics suggested that Styles, Miguel and Katy Perry were the performers.

No matter which route you take, there's no question that it's the chicest way for mere mortals to accessorize like a Victoria's Secret model in every corner of the globe.

She was accused of donning a politically charged dress which was embellished with sunflowers during her performance in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter".

Hadid did not mention the controversy this week when she tweeted about missing the show. Her sister, Bella, who posted the video that was later deleted, is still scheduled to be part of the show.

Apart from these two huge roadblocks, several other models (three Russian and one Ukrainian: Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova and Dasha Khlystun) will also not be able to land in Shanghai for the show for the same reason; rejection of visa.

Hadid did not gave any explanation for her absence but it is being talked that she is among the ones affected by the Chinese visa issue.

Executive producer Ed Razek told People that news reports on the show have been "inaccurate" - but failed to confirm or deny either woman had been refused visas to enter the country.

Supermodel Adriana Lima's visa is in limbo due to a "diplomatic problem", according to Page Six.
