American model Gigi Hadid took part in the shooting for the cover of the Arabic version of Vogue magazine. Images from the model's photo shoot were published on the Instargam social media page of the publication.
Photos, for which Hadid put a headscarf on her head, scored more than nine thousand likes each. The shooting was conducted by New York photographer Inez van Lamsweerde. She also posted other pictures of Hadid wearing a headscarf on her personal Instagram page.
The first issue of Vogue Arabia with Hadid, who has Palestinian roots, came out in March. The publication will be marketed in the Middle East, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
In the comments to the photo with Gigi, posted on the Instgaram account of Vogue Arabia, many users expressed their dissatisfaction with the choice of the model. The panellists suggested that a female celebrity from an Arab country rather than a US citizen would be the best choice.
In February, it became known that Hadid, who mimicked the expression on the face of the Buddha or the samurai depicted on the cookie, was accused of racism. In the video, which was published in Instargam, 21-year-old Gigi parodies the narrow cut of the eyes, which was depicted on the dessert.
