Whether she is walking the runway for top fashion houses such as Versace and Tommy Hilfiger, or covering various magazines around the world, Gigi Hadid, has officially landed her first American Vogue cover alongside Ashton Eaton, who is the face for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
The social media “it” girl obviously took it to Instagram to share the cover photo and wrote, “An ultimate dream come true, I am beyond humbled. Shooting my first American @voguemagazine cover, in my hometown, was so surreal. And to be able to share it with Olympic Gold Medalist and my new friend #AshtonEaton is such an honor.”
The cover was shot by no other than fashion photographer, Mario Testino, who also shot the romantic spread between Hadid and her current boyfriend, Zayn Malik. Judging by the photos, it is clear that there was a friendly atmosphere between Hadid and Eaton as they both looked fashionable and fit while striking athletic poses.
Hadid is not the only one of her siblings making moves in the fashion industry. Let’s not forget about her nineteen-year-old sister, Bella Hadid, who has also been walking the runway for various designers such as Givenchy and Fendi, and recently was on the cover of Vogue Japan. Likewise, her seventeen-year-old brother, Anwar Hadid, was freshly on the cover of Teen Vogue’s June/July issue.
