Bella Hadid frees the nipple as she goes naked in Vogue Paris


Bella Hadid's star is on the rise in a huge way, and she is competing with her big sister Gigi in the modelling world.

The stunning US model, 19, has posed nude in the September issue of Vogue Paris, the French edition of the international fashion tome, in a bid to "free the nipple".

She is also the cover star of the new issue, along with Taylor Hill, and the two models are donning super-chic figure-hugging black ensembles.

But it's the pictures inside that have really made a statement, as Bella is stripped completely bare in the stunning black and white images taken by famed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

She teased a couple on her Instagram page for her 5.8 million followers, protecting her modesty with carefully-placed flowers so as not to reveal too much on social media.

Bella wrote: "#Freeingthenipple for our French Vogue cover with my brothers @mertalas & @macpiggott Thank you for opening my eyes to a new art form I love You! Thank you for the opportunity and experience @emmanuellealt @vogueparis and everyone for your support #LoveYourBody."

Another image posted by the brunette beauty shows her wearing a jacket but with her enviably long, endless legs on display.

She gushed: "A shot from my @vogueparis cover shoot by my brothers @mertalas and @macpiggott and the great @emmanuellealt."

Bella's sister Gigi, 21, recently landed her first cover for American Vogue after going naked for Vogue Paris earlier this year, and was also shot by Mert and Marcus.

Bella, who is dating top music artist The Weeknd, has made a name for herself in the modelling industry over the last few years, and has walked in catwalk shows for fashion labels including Chanel, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Balmain and Moschino.
