Bella Hadid landed her first Vogue cover with the May issue of Vogue Turkey, followed by a star turn for the Vogue Japan September issue. She scored her second Vogue China cover in April – which she announced via her Instagram, to rapturous social media applause, of course – and in late August, it was revealed that she is also the publication’s September 2017 cover star. The runway star, model of the moment, and street style hero features on the cover of the first September issue of Vogue Arabia, photographed by the legendary Karl Lagerfeld.
The American model, whose father is Palestinian real-estate mogul Mohamed Hadid, ranked as one of the most booked models during the couture shows last July, closing Fendi’s Haute Fourrure show at the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Her runway CV has since rocketed, with the model walking for major fashion houses Alexander Wang, Anna Sui, Chanel, and Lanvin in the Fall 2017 show season in February 2017.
While Bella may have initially been referred to as “Gigi Hadid’s little sister,” her mysterious look, coupled with her social media status, have made her a star in her own right. The Dior Beauty ambassador is expected to grace many more covers – here, Vogue Arabia spotlights her cover status so far.
