V114: THE FEARLESS ISSUE
On the set of our V114’s cover shoot in Miami, Gigi Hadid was busy executing her own stunts, which ranged from catching air on a Sea-Doo to piloting a dune buggy. But in between her high-flying acrobatics, the supermodel managed to drop some wisdom on us: “Pressure is a privilege,” she said, quoting her good friend Serena Williams, who also interviewed her for this issue.
It’s with that game spirit that we look forward to fall. While the end of summer may mean less fun in the sun, it also means a new chapter is on the horizon. No one better embodies the kinetic energy of the fast-approaching autumn season than Gigi, whose athletic vigor jumps off the page thanks to our most ambitious cover story to date, shot by Mario Sorrenti and styled by George Cortina. In conversation with Williams, Hadid opens up about fearlessness, competitiveness, perfectionism, and sister-sister dynamics. It’s a rare moment between two remarkable women.
So buckle up for an action-packed issue–and an exhilarating fashion season ahead–because as our cover star proves, a little bit of added pressure is always good luck.
