Gigi Hadid’s Dramatic Transformation for Magazine Antidote (Forum Buzz)

Magazine Antidote has been a favorite of ours since the first issue of the France-based title landed in our forums. Now on its ninth edition, the mag released a new set of covers entitled “The Digital Issue.” Daniel Sannwald captured models Gigi Hadid, Emily DiDonato, Liu Wen, Sasha Luss, Sean O’Pry and Myles Crosby for the occasion. Out of all the cover subjects, we just cannot get over Gigi’s dramatic transformation, as she appears almost unrecognizable in a green wig and frumpy outfit.

Forum members were quick to descend on the thread. “I am so happy to see Sean landing another cover of Antidote since he focuses on his acting career more than modeling,” Mody appreciated.

“Makes sense. Sannwald’s whole vibe is to take a photograph and add a crap-ton of filters and effects to it,” added iclawhands, applauding the collaboration between publication and photographer.

Members soon began to announce their favorite cover and one clearly stood out from the rest. “Liu Wen’s cover is GORGEOUS,” ThatGuyPaul explained.

“Liu’s definitely the best one for me too,” posted thenewclassic.

“Liu and Emily for me, though I’m very annoyed that this ‘wet strands in the face’ hair trend is still raging 3 years later. I really wish it’d end!” declared Benn98.

“Ugh, Gigi’s cover is awful. Liu is perfection, she won,” announced thatsfierce.

Forum member kokobombon ultimately agreed. “IMO Gigi’s cover is the worst, the styling is awful. Sean & Liu’s are my favorites, the background and his pose makes me think of Kenzo,” she admired.
