Millennial power couple Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik fronts Vogue‘s latest issue. And in case you haven’t seen it, they looked stunning, as always. On the cover, both stars posed in eclectic mixed-print Gucci pantsuits. But much to our surprise, people weren’t too happy about these glorious stills.
With the stylish duo either swapping on clothes (think Gigi in suits and Zayn in a embroidered fitted top) or wearing the same pantsuit style, Vogue aims to promote ‘Gender fluidity’ in fashion, calling the duo as a “New generation embracing gender fluidity”.
In Vogue’s interview with the couple, Gigi and Zayn shared that in real life, they also borrow clothes from each other.
“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” shares Gigi.
“Yeah, but same,” replies Zayn.
The only problem? Sharing clothes do not equate to being gender fluid. In fact, it goes a lot deeper than exchanging clothes.
The gender fluid community normally shun out the idea of ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ labels–they consider themselves having no fixed gender. It’s not only about the way they dress but it’s more on how they feel, and accurately representing this identity is crucial–especially when its a personal matter for many.
So are Gigi and Zayn really the perfect models to represent a gender fluid generation?
