Gigi and Bella posed nude together and people are weirded out
A mere two covers into British Vogue and chill and things have gotten…weird.
Yesterday, sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid unveiled their dual covers for next month’s British Vogue via Instagram.

The duo have individual covers, as well as a shared one. The shared cover, shown above, shows the sisters embracing one another. Both girls look beautiful and regal, as per usual. However, we (“we” being the entirety of the Internet as well as everyone else ever) couldn’t help but notice that the sisters are both in the nude.
It’s hard for me to pinpoint exactly why this is so strange. The nudity itself is not quite it necessarily, and it isn’t the fact that the sisters are posing together (family first, after all…) but yes, perhaps the combination of the two is a bit… forced.
Here’s what the Twittersphere had to say about it:
really disappointed with @BritishVogue ‘s uncomfortable image of @GiGiHadid and @bellahadid. These sisters are doing so well in their careers only for Vogue to sexualise a sibling relationship in the most creepy and non-artistic way. Would you ever put two famous brothers naked..

Does Bella and Gigi Hadid doing that naked photo shoot together not seem a little weird to anyone?

Other users pointed out that the extent of the photoshop used here makes Bella almost unrecognizable:
Did Bella get more work done or is it photoshop? Doesn’t even look like her. https://t.co/KJNnddf7Gs

They went overboard with the photoshop on Bella’s face. She is naturally gorgeous there is no need for editing :/ https://t.co/obK6qDL1tc

There’s definitely something artful about the cover, and about using nudity to display a sort of natural, pure type of love between sisters, and we’re not trying to sexualize this. We have the people of the world defending this as well:
people r weird for sexualizing that pic of gigi and bella. like theyre literally sisters??? its just nude photography dont be weird????

But… I don’t know. Some things just don’t quite go together. Alcohol and cell phones, nudity and siblings, pineapple and pizza (don’t fight me on that one).
