Written by Souad El Mghari

While on holiday with her loved ones, supermodel Gigi Hadid celebrated the season with a beautiful Middle Eastern touch, homage to her Palestinian heritage.

In a rather lengthy caption explaining the photo she has posted on Christmas; of hers and a few of her closest friends’ hands all adorned in Middle Eastern Henna, supermodel Gigi Hadid wrote; “Had the best night with some of my oldest friends last night. Feel so blessed to have a foundation of friendships that will bond us for the rest of our lives. The way we can all sit around and talk like the clock’s been turned back 10 years is the most beautiful and grounding feeling. It’s so important to be with the families that raised you and the friends that were raised with yours. So much love in my heart this holiday season !!!!!”

Anticipating the heat she might get for her choice of Henna, and its Middle Eastern design and influence, Gigi added; “& before you go all “cultural appropriation” in my comments, check out the last name. Hadid. Half Palestinian & proud of it”. Thus, referring to her father Mohamed Hadid; a wealthy property developer who was seen more than once on the reality show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
