Gigi Hadid, Zayn speak to the gender fluidity of fashion: ‘It’s fun to experiment’

Covering Vogue’s August issue, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik don what was once thought of as menswear — button-up, collared shirts underneath blazers.

But members of the power couple, who previously posed for the magazine in Naples, believe clothes don’t have a gender.

“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Hadid asks her singer boyfriend, according to the fashion magazine. “Yeah, but same,” Malik acknowledges before bringing up an Anna Sui shirt he borrowed. “I like that shirt,” he says. “And if it’s tight on me, so what? It doesn’t matter if it was made for a girl.”

His supermodel girlfriend concurs. “Totally. It’s not about gender. It’s about, like, shapes. And what feels good on you that day. And anyway, it’s fun to experiment. . .”

She adds, “It’s just about, ‘Do the clothes feel right on you?’”

“With social media, the world’s gotten very small,” says Malik, “and it can seem like everyone’s doing the same thing. Gender, whatever — you want to make your own statement.”

Hadid also opened up about her relationship with Malik while fielding Vogue’s “73 Questions,” describing his most romantic gesture. “A couple years ago on Valentine’s Day we went on a boat trip,” she said, “and it was really nice.”

She also confirmed her beau also spends time in the kitchen, defying archaic gender norms. She says his chicken and sweet corn recipe is “like a hug.”
