The days of teasing and sneak peaks are finally over. For the first time, model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid are sharing a cover for V Magazine’s upcoming fall issue.
The siblings are almost unrecognizable on the cover, wearing lingerie and fur coats (staying warm is sexy!) paired with some choppy bangs and dramatic makeup.
Patti Wilson styled the edgy, leather-clad looks, which were were shot by Steven Klein, marking the first time the Hadid sisters have been photographed together, presumably outside of family photos, etc.
They were also interviewed by model China Machado where they talked about their careers, Instagram and what it’s like to be a model in today’s industry.
“There are some people who are mean at times, but I think generally we are in a generation of models where it’s becoming normal to support each other, and I think it’s really different,” said Gigi. “We’re lucky to be in that generation of girls where we’re really pushing for girl power and supporting each other and being friends with everyone. And I think it’s becoming less cool to be like the catty models that we’ve all heard the stories about.”
Gigi cited Taylor’s Swift’s recent “Bad Blood” video as an example saying, “She put something like twenty successful women in the industry in her video. I felt so lucky to do that because I felt like it was really a sign of our collective willingness to support each other and have each other’s backs and kind of hold hands along the way.”
Bella shares the same attitude as her sister telling the mag, “No matter if they’re working next to you, below you, or above you, be kind and generous to everyone you meet. Yeah, it’s bizarre because it’s weird for people to be nice these days.”
