Now that’s what you call a power couple.

Alongside model, designer and entrepreneur, it seems Gigi Hadid can now add the title ‘photographer’ to her already-impressive résumé. Joining the likes of Kendall Jenner—who has also lensed a couple of editorial lately—Gigi went from in front of the camera to behind for the latest Versus Versace campaign, starring her own boyfriend, Zayn Malik.
Gigi took up the camera to shoot Zayn and model Adwoa Aboah for the Spring 2017 campaign.
In the campaign, Zayn and Adwoa are seen lounging about a suite in the Chateau Marmont, surrounded by electric guitars, chess boards, and other cool young-people paraphernalia. This was seemingly the inspiration behind the campaign. Donatella Versace said of the vision: “They are young people who define the mood of their generation with their honesty, energy and their love.”
Former One Direction star Zayn didn’t have too much to say about the shoot, other than that it was “extra special that Gigi shot the campaign.”
The campaign follows the news that Zayn will be designing his own capsule collection with Versus, which is expected to release in June.
Zayn said of the collaboration, “I’ve always wanted to design clothes and there’s no brand I’d rather design for than Versus.”
