Kate Moss playfully cropped out Gigi Hadid as she promoted their fashion campaign with Stuart Weitzman on Instagram on Thursday.
Eagle-eyed fans were quick to call the British style icon, 43, out for ‘ruthlessly’ cutting out the much younger supermodel, 22, when she shared the social media post with her loyal legion of 710,000 followers.
Fashion royalty Kate was the centre of the spotlight when she paraded her enviable model figure in tiny briefs while Gigi, who posed next to the famous face, was partially blocked by a camera man’s light.

Yes she Ha-DID! Kate Moss, 43, cropped out Gigi, 22, as she promoted their sizzling Stuart Weitzman photo shoot on Instagram on Thursday, leaving fans in hysterics
With the youngest Hadid sister out of view, the supermodel best ensured all eyes were on her own statuesque limbs as she stood tall in sky-scraper stilettos.
Several fans saw the funny side of Kate choosing a picture from the shoot that focused mainly on herself, commenting: ‘Kate casual post, see ya Gigi.’ (sic) ‘She cut out gigi walawww haha.’ (sic)
However, others branded the fashionable businesswoman as ‘rude’ and ‘insecure’ for choosing a picture that obscured Gigi from the spotlight.
‘What a selfish and rude b**** you are? @gigihadid on the other hand was so elated and proud working with you (she even posted it on her ig) yet on the other hand you will just crop her out. It only showed how you are as a person.’ (sic) One angry fan penned on Instagram.
Move over Gigi! Eagle-eyed fans were quick to call the British style icon, 43, out for ‘ruthlessly’ cutting out the much younger supermodel, 22, when she shared the social media post with her loyal legion of 710,000 followers
Others remarked: ‘Why even mention Gigi if you are going to cut her out! So insecure’ as well as ‘Insecure at all?’
Yet Kate’s admirers jumped to her defence as they reminded the trolls that the stunner is a ‘legend and a queen’ among the galaxy of stars in the modelling industry.
They also claimed the fashion royalty could do what she wanted with her social media page and she wasn’t obliged to include the other model if she didn’t want to.
‘It’s been a great honour’ Meanwhile, Gigi revealed she was ‘honoured’ to have the ‘pleasure’ of working with Kate when she shared a series of snaps from the shoot on Instagram
‘You can clearly see Gigi is next to her even if the camera man decided to put the camera right in her face. Also, why an icon like Kate would have to post a pic with Gigi? Just because Gigi fangirled?’ One fan wrote, leading the troops.
‘Kate can use her account like she f****** wants and Gigi can do the f*** she wants. Kate is a legend and a queen.’
Another added: ‘You can clearly see is Gigi. Kate and her team don’t have to post a pic of Gigi if they don’t feel it. Grow the f*** up. Narcissistic post? Her feed, her choice? Gigi also posts solos of herself when she shares campaign with other models and y’all don’t complain about it.’ (sic)
