Gigi Hadid hit back at claims she’s had any kind of plastic surgery in a candid new Instagram live chat and makeup tutorial she did for Maybelline this week. The supermodel shut down the ever swirling cosmetic procedure rumors once and for all on May 20, as she confirmed that she’s never injected anything into her face — despite being accused of getting fillers — and admitted the idea of getting them actually really scares her.
“It’s so funny, the things you see online,” Gigi said as she chatted with makeup artist Erin Parsons while addressing the rumors, per Entertainment Tonight Canada. The social media stream lasted almost an hour and a half and saw the supermodel apply her makeup and talk fans through her routine.
The pregnant 25-year-old Victoria’s Secret model admitted that — along with the misconception she shapes her eyebrows to make them look “really arched” — people have also accused her of injecting fillers into her face to make it more round.
Gigi said that her facial shape is all natural and told fans she’s actually had a round and full face since birth.

Gigi — who’s the daughter of former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid and sister to fellow model Bella Hadid — was then asked if she’s noticed any big changes to her face now that she’s around six months pregnant with her first child.
“I have the cheeks already so there’s not a lot to fill in,” she joked, before she again lamented that she’s never put anything into her face.
“I have never put or injected anything into my face. I am so happy for everyone to do whatever they want that makes them happy and makes them feel more comfortable and good about themselves. Me personally, it terrifies me. I feel like am too much of a control freak. I’m like, what if it goes wrong?”
She added that she thinks some people are too fast to alter their faces in a permanent way by going under the knife or getting injections and noted that she’s learned to accept herself the way she is.
“It doesn’t mean I don’t have insecurities sometimes, but for special occasions you can sculpt your nose a little bit or do whatever with makeup,” she said, before she described cosmetics as being a “beautiful tool” to help people look their best and also feel more confident.
Gigi’s latest comments came shortly after she officially confirmed her pregnancy during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in late April, after her and her boyfriend — Zayn Malik of One Direction — had their big baby news leaked to TMZ. In that interview, she also opened up about her pregnancy cravings.
