Models Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid have graced the cover of V magazine. The sisters are pictured in bondage-inspired lingerie -- and matching banged haircuts. They teased their photoshoot with Steven Klein on Instagram last week, sprawled out on a colorful fur (on the street) in matching thigh-high boots.
The magazine unveiled the full cover today, with the duo posing in provocative bodysuits, see-through stockings and cropped fur jackets, with the coverline, “No, you’re not seeing double! Just trouble!” Both sisters sizzled on the cover in matching lingerie and showed lots of skin, while posing with different backdrops. They are almost unrecognizable on the cover, with choppy bangs and dramatic makeup.
Bella and Gigi were interviewed by legendary model China Machado for the cover story, according to People. They talked about the complexities of working in the industry, the "mean girl" model stereotype and, of course, their sisterly bond. As for any sister fights, the Hadids agreed that they would never argue over the same guy. Gigi explained that she follows a three-step motto in her life and career: Be kind, work hard and make a friend. Bella, on the other hand, said one should be generous to everyone, even though some people think it is bizarre to be nice.
While the modeling industry has its “mean girl” connotation, the sisters explained that the tide is actually changing in their favor. They said that models are increasingly supporting each other and forging friendships. Gigi added that the new generation doesn't think it is cool to fight among themselves.
The Hadid sisters are quick to credit Taylor Swift for changing the dynamic. Gigi said she did Swift’s music video “Bad Blood,” in which there were around 20 successful women from the industry. She said she felt lucky to have appeared in the video, adding that it showed a collective willingness among models to support each other and hold hands along the way.
