Star couple set pulses racing with nude portrait after controversy


They are one of the hottest couples around right now, and it seems as though model Gigi Hadid and singer Cody Simpson are keen to prove it, if this latest photo is anything to go by.

Fresh from her amazing success during Fashion Month, 19-year-old Gigi followed in the footsteps of fellow models Kendall Jenner, Lily Aldridge and Georgia May Jagger by posing for a racy image for 'The Towel Series'.

Just as it sounds, the beautiful black-and-white photos, shot by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino, feature a number of stars posing in nothing but their bath towels.

In a departure from the norm, however, Gigi was joined by her Australian beau Cody for the first ever couple shot in the series.

Sharing the stunning picture on her Instagram account, the beautiful Gigi thanked Testino and sent the couple's love for taking the shot.

While the couple certainly seem very loved-up, it has been a controversial few weeks for them, after Gigi was accused of taking drugs during a Spring Break party for Victoria's Secret.

A furious Gigi took to her social media channels to blast the report, saying that she would not stand back while someone attempted to tarnish her good name.

She tweeted: "I lead a healthy life. I'm a good, hardworking, responsible person. If you don't want to give me the benefit of the doubt that's fine, but I know that this situation will not change my reputation within my industry [because] the people that know & work [with] me know that the person some are trying to make me out to be is NOT who I am or who I'll ever be."

Good for you, Gigi! Looking fantastic, as ever.
