Bella Hadid strips off for French Vogue
Bella Hadid is “freeing the nipple” in the September issue of French Vogue.
The 19-year-old model and Victoria’s Secret beauty Taylor Hill were recently unveiled as the cover stars of the prestigious publication, with the pair posing in matching modest black jumpsuits.
Things unravel inside the magazine though as Bella removes her top in the photoshoot by famous photographer duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, facing the camera front on in one shot while in another she looks over her shoulder.
Sharing the second on Instagram, Bella gushed about what an experience it was to work with the lensmen.
“#Freeingthenipple for our French Vogue cover with my brothers @mertalas & @macpiggottThank you for opening my eyes to a new art form I love You! Thank you for the opportunity and [email protected] @vogueparis and everyone for your support#LoveYourBody (sic)” she captioned the racy shot, carefully placing flowers over her nipple to ensure the snap wouldn’t be banned from Instagram.
Bella’s revealing poses follow in the footsteps of her older sister Gigi, who previously posed naked on the cover of Vogue Paris, with Mario Testino at the helm of the shoot. Both girls ooze sex appeal with their striking figures, but their fame hasn’t gone without people criticising their bodies.
Gigi, 21, has had to defend herself on countless occasions in the past against insults over her curves, however her latest defense is against someone shaming her for being too thin. The blonde beauty is currently on vacation and has been posing in an array on swimsuits, with one Instagram user pointing out she’s lost weight.
“It’s called growing up,” she responded. “I loved my body as a 17-year-old athlete and I love my body now. Yes, I’ve lost some ‘baby fat,’ but muscle mass from my intensive volleyball training in high school has changed over the years into lean muscle from boxing, and work stress can have its affect sic, but purposefully changing my body has never been my thing. I still eat what I want, I’m still strong, and I’m still healthy.”
