Another day, another cover for supermodels, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid! Their latest cover is for ‘W’ magazine’s 10th Anniversary Art Issue, and the BFFs look adorable together in orange cutout dresses! We love these two beauties so much and their latest cover is absolutely flawless. What do you guys think of the cover?
Kendall, 20, and Gigi, 21, are the hottest supermodels of the moment and they have been dominating all of the magazine covers. We love that they shared the cover for W mag and posed in matching patterned Louis Vuitton orange dresses with slits on the front showing off their long, amazing legs, as well as the same pair of Louis Vuitton sandals.
For the 10th Anniversary Art Issue, the girls were transformed by artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin, where they produced a bunch of photos of the girls with morphed faces to look like animals.
Separately from this project, W magazine produced a performance art video with Kendall and Gigi, with an intro by RoseLee Goldberg. “In the video, Kendall recreates four iconic performance art pieces—covering herself in blue body paint à la Yves Klein, having her tulle evening gown cut off in homage to Yoko Ono, crashing through paper walls like Saburo Murakami, and conjoined-twinning with Gigi as Marina Abramovic and Ulay.“
Ok, so W’s Art Issue, titled “Placebo Pets,” is a little hard to understand. The project is described as, “supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid appear as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets. The idea grew out of the artists wondering: ‘Who would survive if a superior alien humanoid species came to Earth?’ Their answer: ‘The friendliest.’ Fitch and Trecartin see in our relationship to pets a parallel with our relationship to technology, in the way that we’ve been trained to adapt our behavior, our language, and the images we choose to present our changing selves.”
Ryan Trecartin explains, “There’s a certain power that animals have over us when they respond to us in unexpected, friendly ways and it’s really them domesticating us almost more than us domesticating them, because they’re training us to want them. Training and taming something is not one-sided. We created social media, but then it changed us because we interacted with it. It transforms us and transforms the next thing that happens just by existing. You can’t really avoid being trained.”
Lizzie Fitch explained her side of the project, “we were also intrigued by the friendship between Jenner and Hadid, and the way their identities have morphed into a combined idea of friendship, known as ‘KenGi.’ The millennial offspring of reality-TV momagers literally grew up onscreen — Jenner beginning at 11 in the Kardashian family saga, Hadid as a toddler in Baby Guess ads. It’s both a friendship and a public commodity to be consumed.
We are loving Kendall and Gigi’s latest magazine cover because it’s totally different from anything they’ve ever done! What do you guys think of their cover?
