Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson Pose Nearly Naked For Towel Photo
Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson bare quite a bit in a newly released picture from famed photographer Mario Testino’s so-called “Towel Series.” In the black-and-white shot, shared by Testino on Instagram, the model and the singer are seen wearing nothing but towels.
The picture is the 69th installment in Testino’s “Towel Series,” which he described to Vogue as a “private club.” Testino began the series when he saw Kate Moss in her dressing room following a shower and snapped a picture for social media. He’s followed up that original Instagram post with images of Miranda Kerr, Kate Upton and others. Now, on-again couple Hadid and Simpson have been added to the mix.
“I think girls and guys feel this freedom at being able to express themselves,” says Testino of the project. “There is no predetermined way of how you put the towel on. You can do anything you want — wear it however you want. I have always treasured this kind of freedom: it’s rare.” Indeed. Hadid and Simpson, meanwhile, have reconciled and seem to be doing well, despite tabloid scrutiny. Last weekend, gossip sites posted video allegedly showing Hadid snorting cocaine at a party in Miami; she immediately slammed the rumor, saying she was “insulted” by the accusation.
