A photo of sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid nude together may have crossed the line with their fans on Instagram.
On Wednesday, E! News shared the racy image of the sisters, sitting together in the buff, legs intertwined. The publication captioned the black and white shot, “Why have one nude Hadid sister on the cover of British Vogue when you could have two?” adding photo credit to photographer Steven Meisel.
Followers of the account were quick to flood the comments’ section with their disapproval of the photo.
“Disgusting! That’s just very wrong.🤢👎🏼,” one follower wrote.
A second added, “What kind of message are you trying to send Vogue???? Disgusting.”
Many commentors stated that the photo was “inappropriate” especially because the two sisters were nude in the photo together. One follower said that while she is close with her sisters, “that will be a polite pass for me.”
British Vogue also shared the image on their own Instagram on Jan. 29 and stated that the sisters will be featured in their upcoming March 2018 issue of New Vogue, out on newsstands Feb. 2.
Followers of the magazine were not as vocal about their disgust of the image but a few said the photo was “crossing the line.”
“No imagination. No style . Just fakery & No Art . What a big disappointment after the sublime December cover,” one follower wrote in reference to the December 2017 cover which featured British fashion model Adwoa Aboah.
Aside from the bizarre imagery of two nude sisters on the cover together, one Instagram commentor pointed out the most obvious thing that was wrong with the photo.
“Why not just not have any clothes on a fashion magazine either ?” the follower wrote.
Despite the backlash, both sisters were proud of their upcoming Vogue cover and took to their own Instagram accounts to share the news.
