LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Bella Hadid recently went nude for Vogue Paris magazine.
The 19-year-old American model landed the publication's September cover and stripped down for the inside spread. Hadid gave a shoutout to the Free the Nipple movement while sharing photos from the issue Tuesday on Instagram.
"#FreeingtheNipple for our French Vogue cover with my brothers @mertalas & @macpiggott," she wrote of photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, aka Mert and Marcus. "Thank you for opening my eyes to a new art form."
"Thank you for the opportunity and experience @emmanuellealt @vogueparis and everyone for your support," she added of Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt. "#LoveYourBody."
"I'm really proud to be a woman," she told the magazine. "I love that women can be feminine but also powerful. You know, free the nipple!"
"I mean, my mom is European," the star added of mom Yolanda Hadid. "We were always very comfortable with our bodies. It's fine if you don't want to show your body like that. But if a woman wants to show her body, I'm all for it."
Free the Nipple in part protests Instagram's strict ban on female nipples in photos. Chrissy Teigen, Chelsea Handler, Naomi Campbell and Ireland Baldwin are among the other celebrities who support the campaign.
