Gigi Hadid has covered countless international issues of Vogue magazine over the years, but the model has revealed that her very first appearance in the French version of the publication happened by accident — when she was just five years old.
The 22-year-old daughter of reality star and former model Yolanda Hadid took to Twitter on Thursday to ask her 6.9 million followers to help her find an image of herself photobombing a Vogue Paris shoot that appeared in the magazine sometime during the early 2000s.
‘SOS! Looking for that photo of me when I’m really young (5 maybe?) when I got caught in a French vogue photo shoot .. any1 have it?’ she tweeted.
