They’re two supermodels joined at the hip, so it’s no surprise Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have teamed up for LOVE magazine’s latest shoot.
Gigi Hadid, girlfriend of Zayn Malik, teasingly stares down the camera lens as she poses for the spring/summer issue of the magazine. And, never a shrinking violet, Jenner hops into bed wearing little more than a pink wig and a pair of sandals for her photograph.
The models were both captured by photographer Carin Backofff for the shoot, with Hadid telling LOVE what it takes to become a modern day supermodel.
She says: “I was always told as a kid that you need five Vogue covers to be a supermodel. I don’t know if I consider myself a supermodel, but that was what I was told you need to do. There was Italy, Netherlands, Brazil, Spain and another one. I’m forgetting. I think I got six, as I’m shooting another tomorrow, another comes out in a couple of weeks in the UK. Crazy, right?”
And Hadid added that being best friends with Jenner helps her to survive in the modelling world.
“When people are really harsh? I live with my best friend from high school, but usually I’m going to call Kendall because Kendall’s the one who will always be like ‘You don’t need that, just let it go’.
“And I know that if that’s working for her then it can work for me.”
The edition also features images from actresses Emily Ratajkowski and Selena Gomez.
New York photographer Backoff is also known for her work with model Othilla Simon and Norwegian catwalk star Frida Aasen as well as Girls creator Lena Dunham.
