W Magazine succeeded in making ultra-familiar supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid utterly unrecognizable for their 10th-anniversary art issue editorial. In a photo series titled "placebo pets," the duo have been transformed into humanoid creatures by artists Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch. Described as "Snapchat animal filters come to life," Jenner and Hadid are "super-friendly, highly adaptive domesticated animals in a humanoid zoo." The idea grew out of the artists wondering “Who would survive if a superior alien humanoid species came to Earth?” Their answer: “the friendliest.”

In addition to the photo series, Jenner also stars in an accompanying video as she reinterprets four iconic pieces of performance art (including heavy doses of tongue-in-cheek). Hadid joins her friend for one of these "performances," and the BTS footage of the girls goofing off during the shoot is pretty darn cute.

Check out the videos below and head over to W's website to read the feature in full.
