W0T DA FUQ: Gigi and Bella Hadid’s Naked Photo Shoot Has People Confused
Fact: Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are stunners and it’s fair-nuff that British Vogue thought that it was a good idea for the ‘it-sisters’ to star in their new edition. A+ for reading the crowd’s interests on that front fam.
However what’s not cool is the photo they decided to run with. It’s weirdly sexualised and kind of misses the mark of what the fans want to see. Like many others, we’re totally shook.
The image sees the two sisters stark naked, straddling each other in a weirdly erotic way. WOT DA FUQ M8S!!? WHY?
The publication proudly tweeted out the image to their followers to promote the feature, saying:
We’re more familiar seeing @gigihadid and @bellahadid apart than together. However, the sisters unite for the March 2018 issue of #NewVogue,
By ‘unite’, what they actually mean is ‘get naked, wrap their legs around each other and suggestively stare at the camera.’ It’s like they thought they were doing us all some kinda favour that we all asked for (we didn’t).
Here’s the pic in question:

On this front, Vogue gets a big phat F- for reading the crowd.
Fans are responding with total confusion and outrage. They’re calling it “creepy”, “sexualised” and “crossing a borderline” – and we back’em 100%. Heres what fans had to say:
really disappointed with @BritishVogue 's uncomfortable image of @GiGiHadid and @bellahadid. These sisters are doing so well in their careers only for Vogue to sexualise a sibling relationship in the most creepy and non-artistic way. Would you ever put two famous brothers naked..

This photo is not only creepy and unnecessary , it brings shame to not only the Hadid sisters and Vogue. Forcing women to do photos like this for a fashion magazine defies logic.

What are people on at British Vogue?! Why would you even think of this shot let alone carry it out?! This is just weird and creepy! Why would the EIC or @CondeNast allow this?!

Promoting porn or just objectifying themselves?

Meanwhile, others reckon the publication has photoshopped the shit out of the girls and have totally disregarded their push for more realistic beauty standards.
Bella is unrecognisable. “New Vogue” same old beauty standards.

gross that their faces were photoshopped to this extent. super gross that two siblings were asked to pose like this.

Then there’s the minority who leapt to Vogue’s defence, claiming they were being all artisticn’shit:
You feel this is disgusting? It’s ART! Get a life! pic.twitter.com/EwvjAPzdIf

The image is weird and disturbing and we now need to go for a long walk and think about things. Okay, bye.
