Gigi Hadid is on the cover of the December issue of Allure magazine. In a bold move, the Victoria's Secret model is seen naked on the back of a horse in the photoshoot.

During the interview, the 20-year-old model talked about her love for horses. She said: "We were living in Aspen, and my first pony, Rocky Daddy, was a rescue from a farmer next door. The farmer was kind of old and couldn't take care of him, so my mom asked if we could, and that's the pony I started riding.

"Every morning, I'd feed him, and Mom would let me dress myself, so I'd put my rain boots on backward, which I thought was really funny. I never really had a great sense of style. I was wearing what I wanted to wear. I don't really know what my style is," she added.

Zayn Malik's girlfriend also dished about her modelling career. She said: "I don't know why, but I just knew."

"I knew I wanted to make pictures better.I was obsessed with photographers and where models were supposed to fit in. Obviously, I'm not taking iconic pictures as a six-year-old, but I studied models as part of an image, not just as a model, if that makes sense."

"I first got inspiration for energy in a photo looking at those Tommy Hilfiger family-picture ads, where there were so many people and it looked like so much fun. I guess I saw what a lot of people don't see in models, which is that it's hard work, and you're not just another object in the photo. I don't know if I got it from riding or school or volleyball or my mom or all of them. But I've always been the person to self-alarm at 4 a.m. to finish a school project," Hadid said.
