Gigi Ha­did’s first Vogue Aus­tralia shoot was a hint at what was com­ing.

VOGUE Australia - - CONTENTS -

Gigi Ha­did was only just start­ing to catch the eye of the in­ter­na­tional fash­ion scene when she cov­ered our June 2015 is­sue. Not yet a house­hold name, and def­i­nitely not the force of na­ture she is at pre­sent, the then 20-year-old model was on her way to big things. Fast-for­ward three years and Ha­did is per­haps the big­gest name in the fash­ion world. But even in 2015, the model wasn’t im­mune to the al­lure of In­sta­gram fame. Speak­ing to Vogue’s Zara Wong (who also in­ter­viewed her for this is­sue’s cover), Ha­did was aware of her so­cial pull, re­veal­ing that be­ing a role model was one of her top pri­or­i­ties: “I feel like be­ing true to the peo­ple who fol­low you is be­ing a good role model, be­cause they are fol­low­ing you for a rea­son, and I think that’s what you should stick to.” Now, with more than 40 mil­lion fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram, Ha­did is back for an­other round, def­i­nitely all grown up this time.
