Gigi and Bella Hadid for British Vogue

Vogue have been accused of "crossing a borderline" with their latest cover.

Gigi and Bella Hadid have posed together for the March cover of British Vogue, but it's received some negative feedback.

The supermodel siblings, referred to by the publication as the fashion industry's most in-demand sisters, can be seen intertwined intimately in the image, completely naked.

While the sisters undeniably look beautiful, fans of the magazine claim that the image - in which Gigi rests her hand on Bella's chest while Bella's is on Gigi's leg - made them "uncomfortable".

Many suggested that the controversial image was taken purely to drive publicity to the magazine, while others complained that the photo was "inappropriate".

The image was also posted on the official Instagram page of British Vogue, where some commenters branded the image as "incest".

"This is horrible and incest. It’s not art or fashion." wrote one fan.

"This feels inappropriate ... like they wanted to push the boundaries and get everyone talking." suggested another.

"Tasteless! I’m disappointed. It seems absurd and disturbing." said one user, while another added "Why do women still have to this? And these are even sisters! Very disturbing."

In addition to the joint cover, both Gigi and Bella appeared on their own solo covers for the issue.

The daughters of Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid can be seen wearing the same gold metallic dress in the images, which are set to feature on the Spring Fashion issue.

However, fans soon took to social media to slam the publication by accusing them of over-Photoshopping Bella's face.

"Bella doesn’t even look like herself lol" wrote one user of The Weeknd's ex-girlfriend.

Both British Vogue and the Hadid sisters are yet to comment on the controversy.
