Vogue’s 22nd international edition, Vogue Arabia, debuted online this fall, and Wednesday marks the launch of its first-ever print issue. Who got the honor of being the mag’s first ever cover model? Gigi Hadid, of course.

The 21-year-old model, who is half Palestinian and half Dutch, was chosen by Vogue Arabia editor-in-chief Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz because, as she states on the title’s new website, Hadid “defines tomorrow’s entrepreneurial and dynamic generation.”

The cover was photographed by Inez and Vinoodh and styled by Brandon Maxwell, three industry heavyweights, and features Hadid wearing a beautiful jeweled veil with nothing else on other than some very sparkly jewelry and mega-glamorous eye makeup. One cover features Hadid’s face demurely covered, while the other shows it peeking out from beneath the veil.

The model shared the latter cover on Instagram this morning, explaining how much the honor meant to her and thanking those involved. She also championed Vogue’s decision to launch the title, saying, “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.”

On March 5, Vogue Arabia will begin to be distributed across the Middle East and North African region in countries like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

With this latest cover, Hadid officially has 21 cover of international Vogue editions—one for every year she’s been alive—including the current issue of American Vogue, alongside Kendall Jenner, Ashley Graham, Vittoria Ceretti, Adwoah Aboa, Imaan Hammam, and Liu Wen. Most recently, the model held her second Tommy x Gigi runway show-meets-extravaganza to kick off fashion month, and has since gone on to walk the runway at Jeremy Scott, Versace, Max Mara, Fendi, and Anna Sui, among others, often times alongside little sister Bella. It’s a Hadid’s world and we’re just living in it.
