     Gigi Hadid has never belied her Middle Eastern heritage.  The daughter of Palestenian immigrant, Mohamed Hadid, has been unveiled as the cover star of the first print edition of Vogue Arabia.  “In one poised photograph, she communicates a thousand words to a region that’s been waiting far too long for its Vogue voice to speak,” says the Editor-in-Chief, Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz.  On Instagram, Gigi shared, “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.”  “The collage of countries across the Arab world are long-deserving of a place in fashion history,” declares Abdulaziz, “and there’s no better first ‘face’ to lead the charge for Vogue Arabia than Gigi, a model who defines tomorrow’s entrepreneurial and dynamic generation.”  Available on March 5 across the MENA region and international locations such as London, Paris, and Milan.

Honoring a more inclusive idea of beautyVogue Paris will feature Brazilian model, Valentina Sampaio, on the cover of its March issue.  With the caption, “Transgender beauty:  How they are shaking up the world,” this is the first time a transgender model has appeared on the cover of Vogue.  Emmanuelle Alt, Editor-In-Chief of the publication, shares with American Vogue, “This cover is about the importance of [human] rights, and that we still need to make progress on an awful lot of stuff.” Sampaio, however, is no newcomer to the fashion world — she is currently a brand ambassador to L’Oréal Paris and has already covered Elle Brasil — nor is she fashion’s only transgender superstar:  Hari Nef, Lea T, Andreja Pejic, and Geena Rocero have already been rising in the world of modeling.  According to Alt, there is really no difference between the emergence of Sampaio and models, Daria Werbowy or Anna Ewers; “it’s just that she happened to be born a boy.”
