Vogue Apologizes for Gender Fluidity Remarks on Gigi & Zayn Cover

Vogue is speaking out after receiving backlash for some statements made on its August 2017 cover, featuring real-life couple Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik.

The cover highlights a “new generation embracing gender fluidity,” and the author writes that Gigi and Zayn have a “blasé attitude toward gender codes” because they share each other’s clothes.

Many readers were quick to point out that just because the couple shops in each other’s closets doesn’t mean they are gender fluid.

Gigi Hadid wore pants last week and now vogue is calling her a gender fluid icon,” one Twitter user wrote.

“The story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture,” a spokeswoman for Vogue told BuzzFeed in a statement on Friday (July 14). “We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit – we missed the mark. We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity.”
