Gigi Hadid Covers Vogue Australia July 2018, Reflecting On Privilege And Social Media

Supermodel Gigi Hadid covers the July 2018 issue of Vogue Australia, lensed by Giampaolo Sgura.

"There is no handbook for being in the spotlight."

Interviewed by Zara Wong, Gigi Hadid channels the same self-reflective thoughts expressed by Kendall Jenner. As a fast-rise Instagirls, Hadid knows that she is the product of a love/hate social media echo chamber, one "as unreal as Donald Trump's hair",  wrote VICE.

Hadid has learned that this echo chamber can turn on a girl quickly -- like when a 3 second video of Gigi doing what models, assuming the pose in eating a fortune cookie sent the Internet into apoplexy, got her condemned as a racist and the subject of demands that she be banned from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai.
