Gigi Hadid Opens Up About Posing Nude in Skin-Baring New Photoshoot

With more industry buzz than a beekeepers convention, Gigi Hadid has officially become fashion’s hottest face of the summer. Yolanda Foster’s daughter is proving once again why she’s the one to watch in a sexy new photoshoot for The Daily Front Row.

Accompanying the skin-baring shoot is a rather frank interview, in which the 19-year-old model opens up about her infamous nude photoshoot for V Man magazine.

“The story behind it was beautiful, actually. They wanted to put me on a train as a metaphor for my journey into adulthood. It wasn’t supposed to be provocative or anything. [...] That shoot was a lot more to me than just taking my clothes off. It was about acceptance. Nudity is so frowned upon these days. If you look at sculptures from hundreds of years ago, everyone’s naked. It’s not a bad thing.”

While many mothers might not love the idea of their barely-legal daughter posing naked, Beverly Hills star Yolanda doesn’t seem to mind. “My mom understands because she was in fashion,” Gigi explains. “A lot of media and blogs attacked her for it, which kind of pissed me off. I’m 19 years old. It’s me and my manager guiding my career, not my mom.”
