Gigi Hadid Slays on the Cover on Vogue Arabia
Top model and bestie to Kendall Jenner, looked stunning on the cover of Vogue Arabia. For many people who were surprised that the model was chosen as the cover girl, were even more shocked to discover that the model is actually half-palestinian.
And when she posted the cover to her Instagram, the model penned a response to any impending controversy that awaited her cover. “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,” she wrote.
“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.” Hadid’s caption is well-aligned with the theme of the issue, “Reorienting Perceptions.”
