Gigi Hadid Drops Out of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Gigi Hadid Banned From China? The Reason The Supermodel Dropped Out Of The VS Fashion Show Revealed

She also sparked further outrage after wearing a sunflower gown - a symbol of the Sunflower Student Movement, which protested a Chinese trade agreement in 2014.

Katy Perry has been forced to pull out performing at the Victoria's Secret catwalk show after alleged visa problems.

If Katy Perry's controversial dress is any indication, Hadid's own past controversy came back to bite her. Katy has now joined the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Oasis, and Björk, who have all been banned from entering China.

Hadid tweeted yesterday: "I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to..." In the video, Gigi is shown squinting her eyes while holding a Buddha, which was seen as extremely offensive.

Malik, 24, and Gigi Hadid began dating in 2015 after he attended that year's Victoria's Secret fashion show in NY.

Sources told the site that Perry, 33, had applied for a visa but was denied by Chinese officials. Perry has not yet commented on social media, as of November 17.

Even though Hadid will not be walking the runway for Victoria's Secret this month, she has been keeping busy by collaborating with Stuart Weitzman on a line of mules, her favorite kind of shoe, and the two variations of suede, pointed-toe shoes launched this week.

'Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit'. "I have learned to be very careful of how my actions can come off or be portrayed, and I'm hopeful you'll accept my apology", the post said. She admitted on the Today Show that she doesn't actually feel like she deserves the award, according to Teen Vogue.

"For every artist who wants to perform in China, officials comb through social-media and press reports to see if they have done anything deemed to be offensive to the country".

Based on the history of cultural appropriation in the fashion show and China's political climate, it's unclear why Victoria's Secret ever thought this would be a good idea.

E! News wrote that it appears that Bella Hadid is still participating in the fashion show, along with models Karlie Kloss and Martha Hunt.
