Victoria’s Secret’ angel Gigi Hadid once again debuts her flawless body in a bold photo shoot for the December issue of Allure magazine. The 21-year-old supermodel not only gives herself the freedom of posing completely nude on the back of a black horse, but she also allows readers the opportunity to see a bit into her private life.
“She beams. She mounts him [the horse] and guides him easily. At one point, lying naked on his glossy bare back, Hadid looks as comfortable and happy as if she were lying in her own bed,” read the magazine article.
Hadid told Allure, “I always want to prove myself and to let people know I’m a good person. A lot of people don’t realise they’re typing this stuff, and that’s a lot of negative energy — regardless of whether we see it or not.”
“People just don’t realise the power of their judgement,” she expressed.
Part of her struggle with the public has been the ongoing idea that she became a successful model because she has famous parents Yolanda Hadid and Mohammed Hadid, and not because of her talent. However, the women’s beauty magazine compares the young model to ‘shapelier supermodels’ from the 1990s to justify she has all that is required of a successful person.
“Hadid is 5’10” and in person has the build of a hot praying mantis,” it wrote.
“But in the fun house mirror of high fashion, she has been deemed “curvy”, and with her full cheeks and honey-coloured skin, the happy result of her Dutch/Palestinian heritage, she hearkens back to the shapelier supermodels of the ’90s — the Naomis and Cindys and Christys,” it added.
Asked how it is to have former One Direction singer Zayn Malik crooning to her with his shirt off (as he frequently appears on Instagram), she answered, “Yeah, that’s not hard to look at” and that it was something she would “never complain” about.
