Gigi Hadid Talks Naked VMan Shoot with 'Daily Front Row'

Gigi Hadid puts some volume back into her blonde hair in this new shot from Daily Front Row.

Here’s what the 19-year-old model had to share:

On her naked shoot in VMan: “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. It was just about a natural acceptance of myself. That’s how I was thinking about it, anyway. I think a lot of girls are able to relate to me because I’m not two pounds soaking wet. I like that about myself. 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. We’re all naked at least twice a day.”

On what her family thought of it: “My mom understands because she was in fashion, but she didn’t know about it before it came out. 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. I don’t know if my dad’s seen it. My family doesn’t really talk about my work. They love me for who I am.”

On her Memorial Day weekend plans: “Before I moved to New York I always spent it on the beach in Malibu with my friends. We’d have a big barbecue and everyone would bring food, and we’d have a volleyball tournament. Not sure what I’ll get up to this year.”

    Keep your clothes on in public, girl. Yes we are naked maybe twice a day, BUT IN THE PRIVACY OF OUR OWN HOMES!

    You look cheap. You hair looks cheap like that. Those earrings look cheap, and that outfit looks tacky and trashy.

    Keep telling that to yourself.

    Stop trying to make this girl “happen” Just Jared.
    She is NEVER going to “happen.”

    Another child of well known parents. Given opportunities because of the family name. Gigi is on the right track regarding body image and not caving in to the pressures to be rail thin. However, she’s cheapening herself with the provacative photos. Christy Turlington would not have posed in such cheap looking shots in the beginning of her career.
    I just find both Gigi and Ireland to be way to public with their private lives.
    Lastly, am I the only one who doesn’t find her very interesting. She has one look and it’s very Guess Jeans and not much else.

    I think Gigi’s an amazing model. And if you want to be a successful model, you’re supposed to be able to take risks and explore out of your comfort zone, or else you’ll just be stagnant and not go anywhere. I feel like that’s why she agreed to the naked photoshoot. to prove in a way that she’s grown up and that she has what it takes to be a great model. Kate moss, Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova are just a few good examples of amazing supermodels who took risks in their modeling career and really became big. if they stayed in their comfort zone and refused to do any risky shoots, do you think they would have been as successful as they were?

    Gigi does not have what it takes to be a supermodel. Not a pretty face and an awkward body
