Vogue Arabia kicked off its first-ever print edition with Gigi Hadid featured on the cover. 

The half Palestinian model appeared on both the English and Arabic covers under the theme "reorienting perceptions" ... as she dressed in an embellished veil and a hot pink headscarf. 

She's been featured on the cover of 16 issues of Vogue worldwide, and now has become the first face of Vogue Arabia

"Being half-Palestinian, it means the world to me to be on the first-ever cover(s) of Vogue Arabia," Gigi Hadid writes in an Instagram caption.

"I hope that this magazine will show another layer of the fashion industry's desire to continue to accept, celebrate, and incorporate all people and customs." 

The magazine first launched online in October, under the direction of Saudi fashionista and princess, Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz, as founding editor-in-chief. 

If you didn't already know, Gigi Hadid's father is Palestinian

Gigi Hadid's father, Mohamad Hadid, is Palestinian. His family moved to Syria after fleeing Palestine when he was just 18 months old. They eventually resettled in Jordan before moving to the United States when he was 18 years old. 

Her father represented Jordan at the 1992 Winter Olympics. 

Despite these facts, people have mixed feelings about Gigi Hadid's appearance on the cover of Vogue Arabia

Some are claiming that she is only pandering to Arabs with her Instagram caption. Of course, others are ecstatic to see her as the face of Vogue Arabia. 

Others are arguing that she is genuinely and openly proud of her origins

Some want to know why Vogue didn't feature a Muslim model?

Suggestions soon followed ...

But Egyptian/Moroccan model Iman Hammam is beyond proud!

"Are you ever gonna use your platform to actually help Palestinian people?"

Others are beyond shook ... in a good way

Some are just loving her look ...

Tears. A lot of them
