The cover will be released on February 2, 2018.
My @BritishVogue cover! 🌟🌟🌟All my love to you sweet, sweet @edward_enninful and all at @britishvogue for having my beautiful sissy @gigihadid and I share the March cover showing how similar we really are 👯♂️😝🦋Shot by our beloved and adored #SteveMeisel wearing @versace_official Thank you @patmcgrathreal @guidopalau for your unwavering attention on set and #JoeMckenna for always perfecting the look. ❤️Thank you xx (Out on stands Feb 2nd!)
Both are obliviously proud of their cover story for British Vogue.
However, the issue lies with the comment section of Edward Enninful, Editer-in-Chief of British Vogue, Instagram where he posted a photo of the sister’s naked together, which is said to be inside the magazine.
Sisters reunited. As the most in-demand sisters in the fashion industry, it's more common to see @bellahadid and @gigihadid apart. However, the sisters reunited for the March 2018 issue of @britishvogue cover story. On sale this Friday. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements. Photographed by #StevenMeisel
The caption says “Sisters reunited”.
A few Instagram users found this a bid “weird” or “uncomfortable”. Yes they are sisters, but did they cross a line? Some seem to think so.
“This is a bad look”, continues one user, “These two young women are sisters, not lovers. Sexualizing a familial relationship is pretty off the mark. Would two brothers pose this way?…Let’s try to not make women into such sexualized objects so much; maybe portray strong and independent subjects instead.”
Another says “…They [British Vogue] needs to be more considerate moving forward to NOT Make this kind of crass decision again. Just because this type of feature has been done before it does not mean that us women like or enjoy this so called arty-farty ideas. This nonsense has got to stop in the Western World.”
Another says “…I would be glad to know what was the goal of putting two naked sisters on a cover. Is there a way of showing women as [only] sexual beings? Why naked?”
Another user saying “Playboy or Vogue?”
We don’t know what their intentions were creating this cover, but we do know that the public construed how it was presented, and they should have been more careful with how they present their models.
