You can't get anything past web-savvy teens these days, especially when Gigi Hadid and/or Zayn Malik is involved. In fact, super-fans sometimes manage to unearth upcoming editorials and cover shoots weeks before they're officially released to the public.
A perfect example of this took place on Monday evening, when a selection of very convincing photo proofs began circulating The Fashion Spot and Twitter. The shots feature Hadid and her newly minted solo artist beau posing together for a sexy spread, presumably for a future issue of Vogue. The images' aesthetic suggests that they were captured by one of the magazine's favorite photographers, Mario Testino, with a European backdrop. (Some eagle-eyed fans noticed that Gigi and Zayn were spotted together in Naples in early March, which would further corroborate this theory.) To go along with the setting, the Instagirl is styled in romantic, glamorous looks like a high-waisted gingham bikini and body-con dresses, complete with a beehive updo. As for Zayn, he looks dapper as hell in slim suiting and leather jackets, with equally enviable hair. Of course, this isn't the first time the pair has shot together: They already proved they have chemistry in front of the camera in Malik's "Pillowtalk" video.
Hadid has racked up an impressive number of international Vogue covers, but the American version has eluded her thus far. Considering May is often a big month for summer movie promos, it's highly probable that this would be just an inside spread, but if this "It" couple does land the cover instead of a big-name actress, we're expecting Kimye levels of hysteria to ensue.
We've reached out to Vogue for comment and will update as soon as we hear back.
UPDATE, 4/5: Gotta love the internet, folks. On Tuesday, Vogue published a preview of a May issue spread, entitled "Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik's Wanton Weekend in Naples," on its website. The images, shot by Mario Testino, are super-retro — with Hadid styled in Miu Miu, Dolce and Gabbana, Prada and more — and unbelievably adorable. Honestly, these two are too gorgeous for their own good. See the whole thing here.
