2016 is truly the year of Bella Hadid. At the beginning of the summer, she was ranked as one of the top 50 models in the world by Models.com at the tender age of 19. And just a few weeks ago, she was seen fronting the campaign for J.W.Anderson’s upcoming FW16 collection.

She has now followed these impressive feats up with an accomplishment of Herculean proportions: covering not one nor two but three separate September issues this season. One of these includes a shoot for Vogue China shot by the one and only Mario Testino.

But the most recent of these is literally her most revealing yet, as the supermodel went topless for a NSFW shoot for Vogue Paris, teased through an Instagram image with the caption, “#Freeingthenipple for our French Vogue cover with my brothers @mertalas & @macpiggottThank you for opening my eyes to a new art form I love You! Thank you for the opportunity and [email protected] @vogueparis and everyone for your support#LoveYourBody (sic).”

Though she is joined on the magazine’s cover by fellow it-girl Taylor Hill, the shoot inside the pages belongs to Bella and Bella alone.

It was shot by the photography duo of Mert Alas and Marcus Pigott, and is an exercise in tasteful nudity. Comprised almost entirely from black and white shots, the shoot sees Bella Hadid in a mixture of designer clothes from the likes of Armani and Saint Laurent and shots that feature nothing but her birthday suit. The full shoot will be revealed when the issue hits stands sometime next month. The Weeknd seems like one lucky man.

Stay tuned to Vogue Paris online for more information on the upcoming issue.
