Model of the moment Gigi Hadid has hit back at body shamers who have said she is not worthy of walking during Fashion Week by posting a seriously inspiring message on Instagram.

The stunner who has walked for Givenchy, Tommy Hilfiger and Diane Von Furstenberg to name but a few big name fashion houses took to the picture sharing website earlier today to send a message to the haters who aren't supportive of her career after they branded her 'different' and 'too curvy' for the catwalk.

Gigi starts the lengthy message which she shared with her 6.5million followers with, "So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month. I did let the negativity get to me a little."

The beauty who is best friends with Keeping up with The Kardashians star Kendall Jenner went on to shut down the trolls who have said she isn't right for a modelling job. "I'm not the first or the last model of my type in this industry," she wrote.

"I am a hard worker and I am confident in myself – one that came at a time when the fashion industry was ready for a change. I'm just doing my job."

Gigi, who very recently became the face of high-street fashion hotspot Topshop also believes that she is challenging the modelling stereotype for the better and mentioned that she isn't ashamed of her curvy figure.

Gigi posted this candid message to Instagram in a bid to bring a stop to the negative comments

She said, "Yes I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs but I'm not asking for special treatment. Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body, they don't want me to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows. I love that I can be sexy – I'm proud of it."

Gigi's candid post has racked up a staggering 162K likes and has been shared by countless supportive celebrities including Kris Jenner and former Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh.

The bronde babe signed out with, "At least be open if not part of the change, because it's undeniably happening," and wished everyone a "Happy Paris Fashion Week."
