Gender Fluid with Gigi and Zayn

July 14, 2017 - 6:30am

The always compelling couple Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik grace the cover of Vogue's August issue. In a nod to "gender fluidity," they are both wearing what was once considered menswear: button up collared shirts and blazers.

The pair spoke out about the fashion choices for the shoot, saying it reflects more than just a trend for them, but their perpetual approach to fashion.

  • “I shop in your closet all the time, don't I?” Hadid asks Malik. “Yeah, but same,” Malik says, bringing up an Anna Sui shirt he borrowed. “I like that shirt,” he says. “And if it's tight on me, so what? It doesn't matter if it was made for a girl.”
  • Hadid agrees, according to Vogue. “Totally. It's not about gender. It's about, like, shapes. And what feels good on you that day. And anyway, it's fun to experiment. . .”
  • Malik acknowledges that this is bigger than just them and pegs some of the changes in the world’s approach to gender and fashion to social media, which has made the world "very small."
  • Hadid explains that their rejection of gender norms isn't confined to the closet.
  • Apparently, Malik loves cooking. His chicken and sweet corn recipe is "like a hug," she says.
