Speaking to Yahoo's Style's Editor in Chief Joe Zee, designer Tommy Hilfiger recalled how he wanted to cast Hadid in a fashion show in early 2015, but his casting director thought she was too fat and short for the job.

"Our casting director said, ‘She doesn’t really fit because you know she’s not quite as tall as the other girls, she’s not quite as thin.’ So they put a red, white, and blue poncho on her. It covered a lot of her body, unfortunately, but it received millions of hits," Hilfiger told Zee.
