It’s Official: Gigi Hadid Replaces Sister Bella as the Top Cover Model for 2018

Anything Bella Hadid can do, Gigi Hadid can do better — or at least that’s how it came across these past 12 months as Gigi slowly climbed the ranks to be crowned the top cover model for 2018 by snatching the title from her younger sibling. It has been an incredible year for the 23-year-old model — and not just on the magazine cover front.

While BFF Kendall Jenner may have trumped her peers as 2018’s highest-paid model, Gigi has undoubtedly had the most exposure. In addition to scoring 11 major worldwide fashion covers, she landed the most ad campaigns for Spring 2018, booking everyone from Versace to Stuart Weitzman. Gigi also came in third for the Fall 2018 ad season.

To celebrate Gigi and her achievement, we’re taking a look back at 10 times she dominated newsstands during 2018.
