Fashion meets fitness in Gigi Hadid’s cover of the August issue of Vogue.
The supermodel donned a wetsuit and wielded a javelin to grace the athletes’ issue of Vogue alongside American decathlete and Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton. It was a sort of homecoming for the Santa Barbara native, who shot the cover photoshoot in her sunny California hometown.
“I couldn’t think of a cover I’d rather be on than the one celebrating athletes,” Hadid wrote in her Instagram post sharing the Vogue cover. “Being an athlete has brought so much pride and joy to my life and has instilled the work ethic that still drives me every day.”
Hadid and Eaton bonded over their shared hometown of Santa Barbara and Hadid’s Olympic skier dad, Mohamed Hadid, who represented Jordan in France in 1992.
