The 21-year-old model took to her Instagram to unveil the cover as her speech read : “I couldn’t think of a cover I’d rather be on than the one celebrating athletes. 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,” the 21-year-old model wrote. “To Anna, @mariotestino, @tonnegood & everyone at Vogue —thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in me, teaching me, showing me the world, and being such a pleasure to work with. To @luizmattos1906 and my @imgmodels family, I don’t think you guys enough—I appreciate you so much.”

Hadid really looks implausible in the ensuing spread, photographed by Mario Testino. Inside the magazine, we see some images of her in a Fenty by Rihanna for Puma high-heeled sneakers doing hurdles over some kind of public sculpture, a feat of achieved by both athleticism and photoshop along side Ashton.
