She is currently pregnant with her first child, and rumored to be due in September.
But Gigi Hadid is currently still in supermodel mode, as on Monday, the 25-year-old took to Instagram to share some very racy snaps from a recent fashion shoot.
The girlfriend of Zayn Malik posed topless to appear in Chaos SixtyNine’s Chanel issue – the 5th Posterbook edition of the publication, that’s dedicated to the French fashion house – though it is unclear exactly when Gigi took part in the risqué spread.

There are 13 covers to choose from of the special issue, featuring her sister Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Adut Akech, Ever Anderson, Fran Summers, Imaan Hammam, Lila Moss and Stella Jones, Margaret Qualley, Mona Tougaard, Natasha Poly, and Vittoria Ceretti.
Meanwhile, despite a fiery relationship with her ex-One Direction star boyfriend Zayn, 27, recent reports have suggested that the couple are now closer than ever.
An insider told Us Weekly magazine: ‘[They are] closer than ever. Gigi has been living at her mom’s farm with Zayn. She came back to NYC recently but she plans to spend most of her pregnancy there at the farm.’

Gigi confirmed her pregnancy in April, after ‘family sources’ first revealed the news.
She said at the time: ‘Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support. Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.’
And the model later said she hopes to emulate the parenting style of her own mother, Yolanda Hadid.

Yolanda – who is also mother to models Bella and Anwar Hadid – has also expressed her excitement at becoming a grandmother for the first time.
Speaking a few days before Gigi confirmed her pregnancy, Yolanda said: ‘Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press. Of course we are so excited.’

‘I’m excited to become Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.’
However, Gigi has remained tight-lipped about the pregnancy since first acknowledging the news, saying she thinks it’s ‘not the most important thing going on in the world.’
‘That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to [the] coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening,’ she said.
‘And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.
