Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge have bared all for a revealing new ad for top footwear designer Stuart Weitzman.

The leggy stunners, who both appeared in Taylor Swift's Bad Blood video, have teamed up with Joan Smalls for the Weitzman Spring 2016 campaign. Top photographer Mario Testino captured the trio wearing nothing but high heels for the eye-popping ad.

Announcing the new campaign on Tuesday, a Weitzman spokesman said, "The fact that the girls are friends made them the ideal casting choice for the campaign, as Stuart Weitzman has always been a common thread in bringing girlfriends together, from shoe shopping to shoe sharing to shoe closet envy."

In the shot, Gigi and Joan are seen standing face to face, with Gigi's arm protecting the pair's modesty. Lily is then seen leaning against Gigi's back, with Joan's arm around her waist.

The trio's nudity means focus is entirely on Weitzman's $398 Nearlynude block heel sandal - a new version of the celebrity favourite Nudist sandal, worn by stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift and the Kardashians.

"So excited to be a part of the @StuartWeitzman SS16 campaign," a clearly thrilled Gigi wrote alongside the shot on Instagram. "Best shoes, best team, best day - clearly NOTHING else is needed."

"These Shoes were made for Walking...Naked", Joan wrote on her own Instagram page.

The campaign, entitled Nearly Nude, will be featured on billboards around the world including Los Angeles, Paris, Hong Kong, Milan and New York. Gigi has quickly become a fashionista favourite over the past few months. In November, she walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - fulfilling a lifetime ambition in the process.

Her personal life has also seen her hit headlines, with relationships with singers Cody Simpson and Joe Jonas under her belt. Most recently she has been romantically linked to former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, with the pair seen leaving a restaurant hand-in-hand last weekend.
