This was the comment that started it all and inspired this post:
Whether or not Gigi “copies” Harry, I will leave up to others to figure out (cough she does cough.) But I will say, she is super insecure in general. Most people who behave like her on social media are unbelievably insecure, despite trying to look confident and carefree. What they are really doing is constantly posting about themselves and their lifestyle in search of validation. They need to be told their life is cool. They need other people to see how luxurious they live so their lifestyles can be coveted. Damn, when did we as a society start rewarding narcissism?
In my opinion, she knows about Zayn and Harry, and that information makes her extra insecure as one of Zayn’s partners. (SIDE NOTE: If you don’t think she knows, or you are a Gigi/Zigi sympathizer, please do not comment here. Your commentary in defense of the Zigi charade is not welcome. This post is for the group of people I was speaking with over on the Discussion Post who do indeed feel like she knows, and wanted her antics all gathered into one place.)
The low-key Gigi vs Harry battle started off earlier than many may realize. Let’s jump back to November 2015, immediately after she and Zayn met and began their toxic partnership. She snubbed Harry (whether intentionally or not) at the AMAs in 2015, by making a point of hugging all the boys except for him. It wasn’t necessary for her to hug any of them. They were strangers and it was very awkward.
Harry knew the appropriate thing to do would be to shake her hand like a gentleman (respecting her personal space) so he immediately extended his hand right away. She took it upon her self to hug everyone else, thereby making a discourteous distinction between the other boys and Harold Styles (passive aggressively revealing her disdain for him on behalf of Kendall or Taylor Swift.) She even hugged Niall who also extended his hand for a handshake first. (And this also just reeks of a setup. Why on Earth was she of all the other celebs at the awards show invited onstage to meet them??? It looks like they did that just because she was Zayn’s new gf. Even Zayn tweeted something snarky after this went down.)
In a lot of ways, her earlier disdain for Harry could have been prompted by her feeling Zayn was in some sort of inherent competition with him. Both being the first to start their solo careers, and Harry being the most adored and popular member of the band.
Honestly, she acts like one of Zayn’s zstans, and we know she admittedly stalked him out before they got together as her next “catch.” She calls him “King” (cringe af for an actual girlfriend) she clearly enables him, and she seems to act insecure on his behalf. Like she felt Harry was a threat in 2016 when he started posting his covers for Another Man Magazine and took the internet by storm. It was the beginning of the HS1 era, so he was naturally trending on Twitter and commanding attention everywhere, and the media was losing their shit over him. Now remember, she’s quite insecure in general anyway, so she must’ve somehow felt threatened by this. Right after Harry posted, she posted one of Zayn’s covers with the caption: “A cover.” as in: “A [proper] cover.”
The hype for this Elle issue above had already died, since it was first revealed in July 2016, and had been available for purchase since August 2016. So why the hell was she posting about it now? And that caption alone implies many things. Harry’s fans rightfully took it as shade, and responded across Twitter.
Here’s the thing, Zayn also posted a cover-story he had with Highsnobiety on the same day within an hour of Harry’s Another Man posts, but he was actually wearing the Gucci coat notably inspired by Harry’s quirky tattoos, from the collection called Blind For Love; spearheaded by his good friend Alessandro Michelle (creative director of Gucci.)
Everyone had been talking about this collection for months and linking it to Harry. So even though some fans accused him of trying to upstage Harry too, I believe Zayn’s post was more of an ode to Harry than a diss. Sort of like how he posted a selfie immediately after Harry’s “Do” tweet (although I don’t think that 2019 selfie was one of encouragement.)
From then on with Gigi, there were just loads of little things too difficult to account for without undercutting our argument with petty examples. So I’ll skip ahead to the more major ones.
The peculiar and sudden Gigi/Kacey friendship. Oh boy, this one was WEIRD.
We all know Kacey is of particular significance to the Zarry world because she is the person Harry chose to sing “Still The One” with while on tour at MSG in 2018. This was the super romantic and electric show Zayn is suspected to have attended, and so Harry poured his heart out for him on the B-Stage during “Sweet Creature” and “If I Could Fly” as well as on the main stage for the Grande Finale with Kacey. Following which Harry removed the rose ring for a single day. Sigh.
Well, who would’ve guessed? In 2019, look who suddenly became Kacey’s best friend?? Of all the other musical artists on the planet? And I really do mean it was some cringey, over-the-top, blowing kisses and holding hands on the red carpet type shit. High school shit. Of course Kacey and Gigi Hadid are now bffs! OF COURSE THEY ARE. This will help to squander any news of Zayn, Harry, Kacey, and MSG from 2018. It would also invalidate claims that Kacey was in-the-know and supportive of Harry and Zayn when she performed with him that night. (I just find it funny how short-lived this fake ass Kacey/Gigi relationship was, at least public-facing lol.)
Moving right along, now we have: The appropriation of the green/gold earring.
It all started when other Zarries and I noticed Zayn and Harry were purposefully wearing green and gold jewelry to represent their relationship during their album cycles.
So in 2020, when Zayn released the first song off his 3rd studio album Nobody Is Listening, in the music video for “Better” he made a point of displaying his new JMB Crown Tattoo, as well as his green and gold earring to keep up with his and Harry’s tradition. (Just like they once had the tradition of using each other’s anniversaries, most notably: March 25th and April 7th.)
A lot of Zarries celebrated this for a while, and I was so proud of him for doing this. In that video, he made a clear and concerted effort to display this earring (on top of the Bode which we will discuss below) and he kept shoving it right into the eye of the camera.
So what does Gigi do? Wears a similar enough set of earrings to make the Zigi shippers think they have matching earrings or that she was wearing Zayn’s earrings, thereby dampening the efforts Zayn made with his homage to Harry. And remember, she is doing all these slick little things (appropriating things that are significant to Zarry) while Zayn remains completely oblivious, because he probably doesn’t realize she knows what he’s low-key up to.
(Anyway, those Zigi cheerleads are blind af because it’s obviously not his earrings once you look up close lol.)
For a time, Zayn was making sure his earring was front and center anytime he took a pic with her, just like he was doing with the Bode and the pearls, but his efforts are all to little avail since she quickly began wearing ALL of these things too. He needs to quit these meager efforts and make a real, definitive move for Harry! It’s sad to realize he thinks any of these impotent things he does for the sake of “Zarry” matter in the long run, or are even worthy of Harry if he’s going to keep clowning with her. **facepalm**
Back to this sad situation right here. We all know what happened after the Grammys. I don’t have much to say except this:
Then we have Bode. Harry has been a whore for Bode since at least 2018.
Then suddenly in 2020, Zayn started wearing Bode any time he had to be seen out with Gigi.
In his “Better” music video, in addition to the green and gold earring, he placed pieces of Bode clothes all over the furniture to indicate his lover (who we know to be Harry since he loves Bode.) He also wore Bode in his Spotify promo photoshoot, and for his music video collab for “To Begin Again.”
But the most significant Bode connection that informed us Zayn was doing all of this intentionally was him wearing a custom senior cords jacket in January 2021 to match Harry’s custom senior chords pants that were revealed in November 2020.
Guess who now (quite suddenly) also wears Bode after the internet went crazy over Harry and Zayn having matching custom pieces?? Khai and Gigi.
I’m also going to toss the pearls connection in there too, because why not?
Oh look, shocker:
Obviously no one is saying she can’t wear this stuff. But we certainly find the timing interesting. (Thank you to everyone who helped me compile this information and these photos!)
Harry and Gigi as each other: (I totally get that these are just coincidences btw, but it’s still hilarious. 🤣)
Lastly, the most glaring example came in November 2019, when Harry revealed his tracklist and release date for Fine Line and there were 4 glaring Zayn connections.
Then later that same day we suddenly get these ridiculous articles insisting Gigi got back in touch with Zayn. It’s so sad. These were clearly commissioned by her team after seeing Harry’s tracklist and seeing the Zarry community freak out about it. There is no way any publication would know anything about Zigi getting back in touch unless they were told (since Zigi had not been spotted together in public at this time) and we all know who told them.
Alright. That’s all I got…for now.
