Through the Lens: Gigi Hadid + Zayn Malik in Naples

La Dolce Vita: Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid bring real-life romance to Naples. Photo by Mario Testino.

Gigi Hadid is one of those faces you not only see everywhere, but a name you hear continually whether you know about her or care about her or not. Completely unavoidable. I know the basics about Gigi, but admittedly even less about Zayn Malik. What I do know is that their photo shoot in Naples with Mario Testino for Vogue is a beautiful throwback to the glam of 1960s Italy (La Dolce Vita! Roman Holiday! 8 1/2!).

He's all Marcello Mastroianni in his perfectly fitted suits and she's all Monica Vitti in her hourglass silhouettes and gingham and tartan.

 Here's an inspiration board of 1960s Italian bombshells that may have inspired Gigi's looks for this retro editorial.
