Supermodel Bella Hadid has posed nude in a sexy shoot for French Vogue.

The US model, 19, posted a censored version of the image on Instagram, voicing her support for the #freethenipple movement by strategically concealing her breasts with a red rose superimposed on the naked photo.

Hadid, who is dating hip hop star The Weeknd, appears on the cover of French Vogue's September issue, with fellow model Taylor Hill.

But the cover image, which features Hill and Hadid completely covered up in black Dior high-neck tops teamed with high-waisted trousers, is a far cry from the provocative nude pose Hadid strikes inside the magazine.

The models were photographed by duo Mert Alas and Marcus Pigott.
