Another day, another major Gigi Hadid cover, right? Nope, that’s not the case for the model’s latest milestone. Instead, Hadid finds herself on the moon—okay NASA, but close enough—for the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
Naturally, the styling lends itself to all kinds of out-of-this-world trends we saw last fashion week, including Chanel’s version of a space suit and the Saint Laurent sparkly boots that everyone was talking about. But what’s perhaps even more impressive is not Hadid’s faux space travel, but the feature that highlights how down-to-earth the 22-year-old is. In fact, one particular quote from her close friend, Taylor Swift, made us realize that Hadid is just like some of our own BFFs.
“As a friend, Gigi is one of the first people I go to for advice,” Swift, who’s been relatively silent in the media since the beginning of the year, tells Harper’s Bazaar. “Gigi’s #1 rule is to treat people the way she’d want to be treated, so she’s on time (or early) to work, says hello to everyone on set, asks them how they are, and actually listens to their response. She is an innately kind and inclusive person who has managed to become a huge power player and businesswoman without ever compromising that.”
For further proof of this power player’s work, look no further than the rest of the images from the Harper’s Bazaar shoot. Take a peek below, and then click over for the full feature.
