You'd think he'd trust Anna Wintour's opinion on what constitutes high style. But Vitalii Seduik—a former TV journalist whose Wikipedia page lists his occupation as "stalker"—insists that Gigi Hadid has "nothing to do with high fashion."
After he assaulted Gigi in Milan on Thursday, the dubious personality explained why he rattled the model by grabbing her and lifting her to the ground. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Vitalii said:
"While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner have nothing to do with high fashion. By doing this, I encourage the fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram. You can call it a manifest or a protest. This is also a wake-up call for Anna Wintour, who turned Vogue into a tabloid by putting Kardashians and other similar celebrities on a cover of a well respected magazine."
Though it does make logical sense that by lifting Gigi off the ground, he'd encourage the fashion industry to change—kidding!—we're not so sure Anna will take his feedback to heart. But chances are, Vitalii won't swing by the Conde Nast offices try to pick her up: the stalker was banned from the U.S. after a bizarre stunt he pulled on Brad Pitt in 2014.
