Gigi Hadid Is The Featured Model Of The First Issue Of ‘Vogue’ Arabia

Half-Palestinian Supermodel, Gigi Hadid, Is The Cover Model Of ‘Vogue’ Arabia

The beautiful Gigi Hadid has been featured on the covers of 17 international Vogue magazines, and now the Arabia issue can be added to her list. Vogue Arabia was a groundbreaking issue due to the fact that it was the first Vogue to be published online before print, and that the issue is targeted towards an entire region versus a specific community of people. The audience is ginormous. Editor-in-Chief Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz chose very wisely in selecting the issue’s first cover girl. You can’t go wrong with Gigi Hadid, period.

With any magazine issue release, negativity is bound to surface online. Haters took to Vogue Arabia’s Instagram, demanding as to why Hadid was given this honour instead of a more “suitable” choice to graze the cover. The magazine attempted to calm the storm with reminding followers that Hadid has an Arabian background for the supermodel is half-Palestinian.

Aside from disappointed viewers, Hadid is thrilled to have received this incredible opportunity. The supermodel wrote a heartfelt speech on her Instagram, explaining how grateful she is to have been a part of a magazine that’s taken steps towards expanding the boundaries of the international fashion world. Hadid 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.”
