Is that you, Gigi? Model in a mask on magazine cover

  • The supermodel donned a gold necklace emblazoned with the One Direction star’s first name
  • In May this year, Vogue Italia was attacked by fans over its cover featuring Hadid whose skin was a darker tone

JEDDAH: Even when she is not strutting her stuff on the catwalk, Gigi Hadid knows a thing or two about staying in the limelight.
The American-Palestinian model’s latest magazine cover is causing quite the stir on social media, thanks to the scary evil bunny mask superimposed on Hadid’s beautiful face.
It wasn’t the first time Hadid’s face was obscured for a cover shoot. The inaugural print edition of Vogue Arabia back in March 2017 featured Hadid on the cover, wearing what appeared to be a veil, and as a result the model was accused of cultural appropriation.
To celebrate its 10-year anniversary and 20th issue, the British magazine Love released a series of September covers, including a suggestive and frightening shot of Hadid wearing a demonic “Donnie Darko”-style bunny mask while grabbing at a small white dog.
Her fans were less than amused.
User @jenbunniIs said: “What ... is wrong with people in this world?”
And @itsjielsanchez chimed in: “I love my queen, but this is a no-no and I’m not even blaming her.”
Love magazine posted the cover shot, photographed by Mikael Jansson and styled bye Katie Grand, alongside the caption: “The golden hare in the golden hour: @gigihadid as you’ve never seen her before.”
Earlier, Hadid posted a less scary image from the magazine shoot. She wrote: “Played dress-up for @thelovemagazine’s 10th birthday cover by the amazing @mikaeljansson and @kegrand. Thank you! I can’t wait to share this story.”
On Tuesday, the 23-year-old model shared three more images from the shoot.
The special 10th anniversary issue of the magazine also features Kendall Jenner and a photo of Hadid without the animal mask.
Hadid is not new to magazine cover controversies. In May this year, Vogue Italia was attacked by fans over its cover featuring Hadid whose skin was a darker tone, with some accusing the publication of altering the image.
The 23-year-old supermodel took to Instagram to apologize for the cover, saying she had “no control” over the creative vision for the shoot.
Meanwhile, Hadid, a favorite of paparazzi, was spotted on Monday with her on-again, off-again beau Zayn Malik, as they stepped out for a low-key stroll in New York.
The supermodel donned a gold necklace emblazoned with the One Direction star’s first name.
The couple had announced a brief split in March but were later spotted together in public just a few weeks later. They first started dating in 2015 and even appeared on the cover of Vogue together in 2017.

Bella Hadid marches to the beat as Cavalli unveils its latest line

MILAN: On a frosty day in Milan, US-Palestinian model Bella Hadid caused the crowd to hold their smartphones a little higher when she took to the runway at Roberto Cavalli’s Fall/Winter 2019 show during Milan Fashion Week.
The show, which kicked off to thumping music at close to 1pm local time on Saturday, took place in a white tent in the unassuming Giardini Indro Montanelli park, a 20-minute walk from the fashion capital’s central hub.
As children played in the park outside — and bemused parents asked what all the photographers and fuss was all about — the Italian label showed off a decidedly more subdued collection inside.

Fans of the flamboyant label, headed by designer Paul Surridge, should prepare themselves for a little less animal print than usual in the label’s latest outing.
It’s far from boring, however. The tired leopard print has been retired in favor of a slinky snakeskin, zebra print and fresh take on camouflage print — in a palette of blue, teal and crystal white.

Both womenswear and menswear items featured the print on pieces ranging from bulky jackets to form-fitting, glittering dresses with keyhole backs.
A luscious teal shade is visible throughout the line, with men’s blazers and cropped snakeskin jackets for women boasting variants of the color.
Pleats also seem to be in this season, as the designer showed off a fair few creations with tightly pleated, yet flowing, skirts — including a magenta dress with a deep V-neck and mid-length skirt that stood out.

Other pops of color included an ochre yellow minidress showed off by the Hadid sibling — with its ribbed bodice and flowing, schoolgirl-style skirt, it’s a creative take on the standard winter jumper dress.
Crystallized trousers and form-fitting minidresses featured throughout the collection, with the menswear adopting the bling, albeit with more boxy cuts.

Keyhole openings placed at the front of some dresses, rather than at the back, and one tight number which flared into a skirt of material swatches and Bella’s jumper dress were the only real experiments in terms of cut.
However, the icy collection, with its frosty shades and cool blend of colors will no doubt go down a treat.
