Vogue Arabia launches this month - and Gigi Hadid has been revealed as its first cover star.
Axar.az reports that, writing on her Instagram page, the model said: "Being half-Palestinian, it means the world to me to be on the first-ever cover(s) of Vogue Arabia."
Two different editions of the magazine's first issue have been produced - one in English and one in Arabic.
"I think the beautiful thing about there being international Vogues is that, as a fashion community, we are able to celebrate, and share with the world, different cultures," Hadid said.
Saudi princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz has been appointed the editor-in-chief of the new magazine by its publisher Conde Nast International.
The reaction to the covers has been broadly supportive - but some Instagram users left comments encouraging the publication to use Arabian models for their future issues.
Hadid has mixed heritage - her mother is a Dutch-born American while her father is Palestinian-American.
