Fashion houses often come under fire for their controversial campaigns – and the latest Versace advert was case in point.

The new Fall/Winter 2016 campaign, which shows 21-year-old Gigi Hadid and 23-year-old Karlie Kloss playing mothers, each with two children old enough to have made them teen moms, came under fire when it was unveiled earlier this month.

And the Italian fashion house is sure to set tongues wagging once more after the release of its accompanying campaign video, which sees the two supermodels playing doting mothers to their children.

As the video rolls, Gigi is seen walking down the street with a man who is presumed to be her husband. The couple is also walking with two children – a little boy, who appears to be about four or five, holds Gigi’s hand, while a little girl, who looks to be two or three, sits in a stroller.

At just 21, Gigi would have to have been a teenager when she gave birth to have had the two children. And while some people are calling out the designer for the strange casting, others are taking issue with another aspect of the ads, charging that a chain wrapped around a baby’s stroller is racist.

That’s because the little girl sitting in the stroller in Gigi’s ad isn’t just fastened in with a traditional seat belt, but a chain, which many commenters are likening to the bonds that were used during times of slavery. ‘Chain is a bit unnecessary,’ reads one of the tamer critiques. ‘Disappointed in this campaign.’

While the chain was likely meant to look like an edgy accessory to complement the family’s leather jackets, unhappy followers have pointed out that the brand showed a lack of sensitivity by not realizing it would resonate as a symbol of slavery.

Though Karlie is 23, she, too, likely wouldn’t been a teen when she started her faux-family in the ad. She also poses with a husband figure and two young children, who could be old enough to start kindergarten.

She and Gigi – who are best friends in real life – are also seen playing the doting mum at their local grocery store as they both hold and coo over their young daughters.

Some critics have joked that the ads aren’t for a clothing like at all, but a new TV show called ‘Teen Mom: Versace Edition’.
And while a few have suggested that the campaign glorifies teen motherhood, others seem to think it’s more just insulting to real moms, who tend to be older with kids that age.

Yahoo even pointed out that the average age women gave birth to their first child in the US in 2014 was just under 26 — meaning neither of these ads comes even close to presenting the average reality.

‘The campaign stars Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Dilone in a series of tableaux, some real-life and some fantastical,’ the brand explained on Instagram. ‘The combination perfectly illustrates the relevance and wearability of modern #Versace for all parts of one’s life, from the ultra-glamourous to the everyday.’

Gigi Hadid showed just why she’s held in such high-esteem as she wowed in a stunning black bodycon dress with sheer panels and a fishtailed feathered bottom at The Power of Colours – Maybelline Make-Up Runway in Berlin.

The beauty, 20, stole the show on the red carpet, with her glamorous gown accentuating her slender curves and her black stilettos elongating her lithe legs. The 20-year-old tucked her sleek blonde tresses behind her ears and applied a slick of bold red lipstick to inject a splash of colour into her look.

We have added x84 photos from the event to the gallery…

The 19-year-old oozes sexiness on the tangy Salt Flats National Park in California for the sneak peek at designer Donatella Versace’s trendy spring summer 2016 collection.

Salt is having its most stylish season yet courtesy of catwalk superstar Gigi Hadid and fashion label Versace. The gorgeous model stuck her stilettos into mountains of the bright white stuff we slather on chips for Donatella Versace’s latest photoshoot, which the designer directed herself.

Gigi swapped the cosy conditions of the Victoria’s Secret catwalk for the outdoor climes of the Salt Flats National Park in California which gave the look of wintry, alpine slopes.

Her outfits offered fashion-fans a sneak peek at the trendsetting 2016 spring-summer collection as she pouted and posed alongside Raquel Zimmerman and Natasha Poly. The 19-year-old looked chic and sophisticated sporting a charcoal grey fitted blazer and high-waisted shorts with the jacked pinched in at the waist with an attractive emblem disc belt.

In another pose, the blonde-haired beauty is pictured with a fitted tan jacket thrown over the top. She completes both outfits with chunky heeled ankle boots and a huge tan and navy Versace handbag.

But the trio made a zesty splash on the tangy slopes with loud-printed jumpsuits, bikinis and playsuits. They donned lime green and banana-yellow prints with strappy sky-high heels as they lounged on the American mountains.

Because in Stuart Weitzman‘s new Spring 2016 ad campaign, models Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls and Lily Aldridge are wearing nothing but shoes. It’s um, to put the focus on the shoes, obviously.

The trio of beauties were photographed by the great Mario Testino in the tasteful campaign, which shows the “intimate relationship between a woman and her shoes,” according to a release from the shoe company.

And the stripped-down look is fitting, considering the women are are modeling the “Nearly Nude” style, Weitzman’s new block-heel version of his iconic “Nudist” sandal.

We have added the campaign poster, plus some behind the scenes photos to the gallery…

Gigi Hadid joined her BFF Kendall Jenner on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway last night, and ensured it was a show none of us would ever forget. The 20-year-old star donned giant wings and some tiny lingerie as she made her debut at the world famous show in New York on Tuesday evening. Beginning in a turquoise lace set of underwear, the blonde beauty had a giant cape behind her as she held her arms wide on the catwalk – revealing huge intricate wings behind her.

It was one of the more dramatic appearances and is sure to make her a leading star of the night. The star appeared as Ellie Goulding performed in front of the crowd, and the pair made a stunning duo. Gigi then completely transformed as she swapped into baggy yellow trousers and a tiny red crop top for the dressing up stage – showing a complete contrast to her earlier outfit.

Later Gigi attended the After Show Party with her Mom, Yolanda. Awww, go Gigi!
