Gigi Hadid’s friend Leah McCarthy has been serving as her fashion photographer during the coronavirus lockdown.

The 25-year-old model, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, has been self-isolating at her farm in Pennsylvania with the One Direction singer, her mother Yolanda, sister Bella, and her good friend Leah – who she turned to for help when editors from fashion magazines started asking if she could pose for photoshoots in her home.

“My friend Leah, who has been quarantined with us from the beginning because she was working in New York when it happened, she’s like the photographer,” Gigi said via videolink on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday. “So, she’s got a really easy fast route to photography stardom and now has two Vogue shoots under her belt.”

Jimmy then asked the model if Leah knows what she’s doing, and she replied, “No, but she’s like, ‘I don’t know what’s so hard about this.'”

The catwalk beauty revealed that magazine editors started reaching out to her for DIY photoshoots as soon as the lockdown began. She’s done one for Vogue Italia, in which she played video game Mario Kart while wearing a red Chanel ensemble they sent her, and another for U.S. Vogue’s Postcards From Home series in which she wore her own clothes and posed with Bella and some farm animals.

“It kind of started the first week we were in it, I was already getting calls like, ‘Hey, these magazines want you to shoot yourself at home,'” she explained. “I did one for Italian Vogue where they sent a Chanel look and I kind of made it a quarantine fantasy scene, but American Vogue wanted it to have clothes that were meaningful and told a story.”

Models Eva Herzigova and Imaan Hammam recently posed for home photoshoots for Vogue Arabia, while pregnant actress Chloe Sevigny staged a nude photoshoot over video conferencing site Zoom for The Cut.

Eva Herzigova and Imaan Hammam have been tapped to star on the cover of Vogue Arabia’s Do It Yourself issue.

As millions of people around the world are practicing social distancing and staying at home due to the coronavirus crisis, the publication’s editor-in-chief Manuel Arnaut decided to hand over the reins of the May 2020 issue to four top models, each of whom photographed and creative directed their own cover photoshoots.

“If the world is practicing new skills and we are invited to do more and more with our own hands, why not ask our cover stars to produce, style, and photograph their cover shoots?” he said of the concept for the Do It Yourself issue. “I was completely blown away by the quality of the images that we received from our fantastic casting. They also did their own make-up and wore their own clothes.”

For her cover, Czech supermodel Herzigova was snapped by her partner Gregorio Marsiaj while posing in a grassy field while wearing a green Alessandro Dell’Acqua dress and necklace from Dolce & Gabbana.

“I dedicate this very special cover @voguearabia to my longtime friend @alessandrodellacqua… For this out of ordinary DOITYOURSELF issue I have chosen his dress that I have kept and treasured in my closet for over 20 years. I have been a huge fan and supporter of his work since the beginning. His talent is boundless and his heart is the biggest,” the 47-year-old posted alongside an image of her cover on her Instagram page.

Meanwhile, Hammam shared an image of herself sitting in her New York City apartment, with a dark blue painted wall serving as the backdrop.

“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to be creative at home! I had soooo much fun shooting this. Shot at home on iPhone,” she added.

Models Constance Jablonski and Nora Attal also have their own individual covers.

Naomi Campbell closed Saint Laurent’s spring/summer 2020 Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday night.

The iconic supermodel wowed the crowd, which included models Kate Moss, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, and Amber Valletta as well as celebrities like Salma Hayek, Rami Malek, Andie MacDowell, and Ezra Miller, as she closed creative director Anthony Vaccarello’s latest presentation.

She strutted down the long runway in front of the Eiffel Tower wearing a black sequinned blazer jacket and matching trousers – a nod to the French fashion house’s famous Le Smoking suit – and black pointed ankle strap pumps with gold tips.

The 49-year-old shared footage of herself walking in the shimmering suit and wrote on Instagram, “Closing @ysl Spring Summer 2020 tonight was an honour! Thank you @anthonyvaccarello & @pg_dmcasting.”

Naomi had hinted at her appearance earlier in the day by sharing throwback footage of herself walking the YSL runway for the Couture Spring 2002 show and another snap of herself on the runway with Yves Saint Laurent himself.

“Mr. Yves Saint Laurent, you believed in me and stood by my side when I needed it most! Grateful for you and for all the memories we’ve made together over the years. Kind-hearted, creative genius and fashion visionary! We miss you dearly,” she wrote in the caption.

The show marked Naomi’s first appearance for a fashion house for spring/summer 2020. Earlier this month, she walked the runway for her annual charity event, Fashion for Relief, during London Fashion Week.

For his spring/summer 2020 collection, Vaccarello channelled rocker chic, festival style, and bohemian looks, with the collection featuring gold paisley embroidered dresses, chiffon blouses, and peasant-style smocks.

The models, which included Kaia Gerber and Stella Tennant, also donned micro shorts, cut-off jeans, waistcoats, cowboy boots, and tuxedo ensembles.

Christy Turlington has been tapped to appear opposite Marc Jacobs in the fall 2019 campaign for his high-end clothing brand.

In recent years, the supermodel has taken a step away from the fashion world to focus on her family and charity projects, but she came out of retirement to close Jacobs’s fall/winter 2019 show held during New York Fashion Week in February.

Following the runway show, Turlington posed with Jacobs for photographer Steven Meisel, and the designer has now used those black-and-white images for his new marketing imagery.

“My friendship with Christy began in 1987. Over these past decades she has always shown up for me. Always. After closing our RUNWAY FALL 2019 MARC JACOBS show, Christy agreed to be photographed for our campaign,” he wrote on his Instagram page alongside a snap of Turlington standing in a ballgown while he reclines on the ground. “The results are stunning and the day in the studio with her, Steven and the crew was a day I will always cherish. It is a great gift to continue to create new memories with her.”

Katie Grand styled the photoshoot, while Pat McGrath was in charge of make-up and Guido Palau did the hair. Another image posted online shows Turlington and Jacobs standing side-by-side, which the 56-year-old captioned: “Christy and me by Steven. What more could I dream of?”

And Turlington, 50, appeared to be pleased with the results too, as she uploaded two of the photos to her Instagram page and commented, “Anything for Marc, always…So excited to see the first of these images taken by #stevenmeisel with @themarcjacobs.”

A number of the mother-of-two’s celebrity pals praised the photos as well, with Rachel Zoe, Eva Herzigova, Niki Taylor, Naomi Campbell, and Anna Sui all leaving messages in the comments section.

Thank you, Gigi for inviting me to your magical farm allowing for me to capture a very intimate side of you.”

One photo depicts Gigi holding a giant bouquet of colourful wild flowers, while a second sepia-toned image sees her posing on a farm while sporting a cowboy hat, and a third shows a close-up of her face.

The shoot was styled by creative director Jan Kralicek, with the 23-year-old’s beauty look completed by her go-to make-up artist Erin Parsons.

Gigi also uploaded some pictures from the shoot and shared that she was thrilled with the final result.
