For Allure’s December 2016 issue, Gigi Hadid posed naked on a horse. The model, who grew up riding (her sister Bella Hadid even had dreams of becoming an Olympic equestrian), rode bareback — quite literally — for photographer Patrick Demarchelier, with her blond curls perfectly tousled and her stark white skin offering a striking juxtaposition in a beautiful series of images.
Yet Gigi’s far from the only celebrity to pose with a horse. In fact, there are so many models and celebrities to have done so, it seems that fashion has an interesting obsession with the beautiful animals. Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, and more have all gone riding with equines while wearing couture. Models Gisele Bündchen and Christie Brinkley have also posed nude on horses — because sure, why not?
