The two, who first started dating a year and a half ago, made their comments to Vogue, which features them on the cover of its August 2017 issue, with both stars wearing colorful Gucci suits. The magazine talked to them about their personal fashion styles, noting that Hadid and Malik are “part of a generation embracing gender fluidity.”
“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” asked Hadid, 22.
“Yeah, but same,” replied Malik, 24. “What was that T-shirt I borrowed the other day?”
“The Anna Sui?” asked Hadid.
“Yeah,” Malik said. “I like that shirt. And if it’s tight on me, so what? It doesn’t matter if it was made for a girl.”
“Totally,” Hadid said. “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.”
Vogue also showcases Hadid and Malik in more of what it calls “gender-bending looks,” such as tan, corduroy Prada suits and colorful Gucci and Marc Jacobs tracksuits.
“With social media, the world’s gotten very small,” Malik later added. “And it can seem like everyone’s doing the same thing. Gender, whatever—you want to make your own statement. You know? You want to feel distinct.”
