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 in one shot while in another she looks over her shoulder.
Sharing the second image on Instagram, Bella gushed about what an experience it was to work with the lensmen.
Bella’s revealing poses follow those 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 Gigi, 21, has had to defend herself on countless occasions against insults about her curves, and her latest defense came against comments 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 had 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.”
