Congratulations are in order for Gigi Hadid, who landed her first ever American Vogue cover! The model graces the magazine’s August 2016 issue, alongside Olympic decathlete Ashton Eaton. Though Gigi may not be an official Olympic athlete, judging from these photos, she’s definitely fierce and spirited like a true competitor.
Wearing a Versace turtleneck and Salvatore Ferragamo dress, Gigi successfully performs a high jump — all while wearing high heels. We’re pretty sure even Ashton was impressed by the model’s athletic prowess. “She has a natural ability,” he said to Vogue. And in the spirit of being an athlete, Gigi showed her humbleness with a grateful note on Instagram.
“I couldn’t think of a cover I’d rather be on than the one celebrating athletes,” she wrote. “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.” Read on to see more photos of Gigi in her element and watch a BTS video, then check out all the times she nailed the athleisure trend.
