Supermodel besties Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are the epitome of high fashion glamour… but not this time!

Their latest fashion shoot is undoubtedly bizarre, undergoing a dramatic transformation while going “Wild” for W Magazine‘s 10th Anniversary Art Issue.

Transformed by artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin, Kendall and Gigi take on an entirely new look (and face) for the cover and inside spread.

In the project titled “Placebo Pets,” KenGi appear as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets. The idea grew out of the artists wondering: “Who would survive if a superior alien humanoid species came to Earth?” Their answer: “The friendliest,” the magazine reveals.

The supermodel duo showcased their modelling prowess – proving they can make even the weirdest and wackiest of shoots look flawless!

Dramatic transformation: Kendall and Gigi as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets

 Photoshopped much?! Gigi is barely recognisable!

Looking virtually unrecognisable, Kendall’s nose was photoshopped beyond recognition – giving her animal like qualities.

Well, the duo can say they’ve really done it all now!!

Check out more pics from the weird and wacky shoot below!

Artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin explore how cameras, social media, and reality TV have changed the way we engage with the world and with one another. In this project for W’s Art Issue, titled “placebo pets,” supermodels @KendallJenner and @GigiHadid appear as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets. Fitch and Trecartin see in our relationship to pets a parallel with our relationship to technology, in the way that we’ve been trained to adapt our behavior, our language, and the images we choose to present our changing selves. “There’s a certain power that animals have over us when they respond to us in unexpected, friendly ways,” says Trecartin. “And it’s really them domesticating us almost more than us domesticating them, because they’re training us to want them. Training and taming something is not one-sided. We created social media, but then it changed us because we interacted with it.” Read more in an interview with @DianeSolway on wmag.com.
