Supermodel Gigi Hadid appears in her first ever ELLE US cover triad, taking us to Rio de Janeiro in an issue that confronts the “allure of dangerous women”. Chris Colls captures the American all star posing in Cynthia Rowley pink, Balmain, Hermes, Valentino and more styled by Ilona Hamer.
In her interview ‘All Eyes on Gigi Hadid”, the supermodel responds to the ongoing attacks against the insta girls that she is a woman of privilege. In reality, these women are damned if they do and damned if they don’t, but Gigi does address her privilege in an honest and thoughtful way:
"I mean, I understand it. I come from privilege, and I recognize my privilege. But because my mom was on a TV show [Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills], people think that my whole childhood was fame. It absolutely was not. My mom was a model. She moved to the States when she was 16 to send money back to her family in Holland. My dad was a refugee and worked his way up in every way. I work hard to honor my parents."

Arizona explains the sustainability credentials behind Mango's Committed Collection:
“I love the MANGO committed collection. I am so excited to be here wearing it. This is my passion and MANGO came to me and said “Oh we would like to have you in our collection because of your interest in sustainability”. People are starting to see that this is my real interest and passion and I am really honored. I love it because the fabrics feel great, I know a lot about where the fabrics come from and I know how much better they are for our environment, our world and us. The fabrics that you use are really high quality like, Tencel, which is made from trees that were raised to be cut, so has never deforested anything and also the chemicals used in the process are never wasted, they reuse 99.7 % of the chemicals that they use for processing. And also you have chosen organic cotton, which is a totally different way of growing cotton. From my personal point of view, my decision to wear organic cotton comes from the way the farm is run, an organic farm for cotton is a totally different organization and that’s really important to the health of our environment.” – Muse for Vogue Paris on MANGO committed collection.
