1. Gigi Hadid is the cover model for the first ever issue of Vogue Arabia.
Hadid posted the photo to her Instagram where she praised the magazine.
In full her caption said:
“I think the beautiful thing about there being international Vogue’s is that, as a fashion community, we are able to celebrate, and share with the world, different cultures. Being half-Palestinian, it means the world to me to be on the first-ever cover(s) of @voguearabia, and I hope that this magazine will show another layer of the fashion industry’s desire to continue to accept, celebrate, and incorporate all people & customs and make everyone feel like they have fashion images and moments they can relate to… & learn and grow in doing so. Thank you @deenathe1st for your vision and for having me on this cover… by the incredible @inezandvinoodh - so much love.”
2. The photos were shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and have been described as being styled in a “uniquely Arabian way”.
Vogue Arabia’s editor-in-chief said “…there’s no better first ‘face’ to lead the charge for Vogue Arabia than Gigi.”
