Gigi Hadid cements It Girl status with Vogue cover

Gigi Hadid has landed her 12th cover for Vogue magazine.

The American model was chosen to star on American Vogue's "Special Edition It Girl" issue, which also spotlights fellow stars including Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Zendaya, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner, as well as men-of-the-moment Tom Hiddleston and Frank Ocean.

According to the special issue's listing on Amazon, where it is being sold for $12.99 (£10.60), "It Girl Style celebrates the women who translate fashion from the runway to the red carpet to the street."

For the cover shoot, Gigi was photographed by Gregory Harris on Atlanta Beach in New York, wearing a sparkling sequin Altuzarra dress while she smiles for the camera.

"I'm so honored to be on the cover of @VogueMagazine's Special Edition issue & to be joined by so many It-Girl Style icons & friends !!!!!!!!" wrote Gigi on Instagram of the issue.

Photographed outdoors in the sunlight, the image seems to reference the 2014 September issue, which dubbed Cara, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls the "Instagirls”.

Her latest shoot follows just three months after the release her first-ever American Vogue cover, which she shared with U.S. Olympian Ashton Eaton.

The 21-year-old's first Vogue cover was for Vogue Spain’s March 2015 issue, and she’s since graced the front of the Australian, Brazilian, British, Parisian, and German editions, among others.

At this point, the blonde beauty’s career shows no signs of slowing down. In addition to launching her Tommy x Gigi collection in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger last month (Sep16), she also revealed that she was designing boots for Stuart Weitzman and was recently named the face of Reebok.

American Vogue's Special Edition It Girl issue is available now on Amazon and on newsstands on 18 October (16).
