It turns out that Kaia Gerber's modeling talents go beyond that stunning face of hers. She has also lent her photogenic skills to boyfriend and Elvis star Austin Butler's V-Man cover shoot with a sneaky, blink-and-you'll-miss-it sexy cameo. One black-and-white photo shows the leading man in a black muscle tee with his back to the camera, and a pair of disembodied woman's arms wrapped around his neck. You wouldn't know the arms were Gerber's unless you peeped her tiny wrist tattoo of lettering reading, “I know.”
The shoot was photographed by Collier Schorr and styled in a 21st-century take on the King's signature looks by Gro Curtis. Butler is pictured in a variety of leather jackets, including one white bedazzled number straight from Elvis Presley's Vegas era.
"His mother passed away when he was 23, and my mother passed away when I was 23,” Butler told V-Man. “And I thought to myself, That's the trajectory of being human and living your life. My mom was my best friend, and his mom was his best friend. I know what that felt like losing my best friend and my mother at that particular time in my life, so that really connected me to him and made me just feel so much love for him.”
Butler and Gerber made their first public appearance as a couple at W Magazine's annual Best Performances party in March, according to People, three months after they were first spotted together. The couple are (clearly) happy to be photographed together, but that doesn't mean they're willing to share the details of their relationship with the general public. Asked about his relationship with Kaia Gerber in a GQ profile, Austin Butler said only, politely, “I don’t think there’s anything I want to share about that. But thank you for providing the space.”
