GIGI HADID is British Vogue's January cover star.Making her debut for the magazine, Hadid wears a jumper by British high-street brand Topshop on the cover, along with a Bally leather jacket, while inside the issue she talks candidly about her meteoric rise - which many attribute to her success on social media.

"I don't change anything about myself - what I post just works," she told us."When people are different on social media than they are in real life, it becomes forced.Cara Delevingne was never scared of being weird.She opened that door for me.But I don't think I just get hired because I have Instagram followers.My jobs are also what gets me followers."
Kendall Jenner, another model whose 2015 has been unprecedentedly successful, is a close friend of Hadid's and - although many people compare them, having both first found fame on reality television shows - Hadid revealed that they are actually quite different as people.

"Kendall's more guarded.I'm more feisty," she said."I don't want to say outgoing, because she is really outgoing once you get to know her.And when we're both having fun, she makes me a lot more spontaneous.It's a good balance.But neither of us likes to stay out past 11."
Hadid - who made her Victoria's Secret show debut last month[/link] -recently made headlines for taking on online bullies who were criticising her figure and claiming she was curvier than her catwalk contemporaries.Feisty as she claims to be, Hadid continues to show her detractors that their comments have no impact on the way she feels about herself or how she conducts her career.

"Yeah, I'm an athletic person.But I love my body because I know what it's been through to be what it is, and honestly I'm not going to change for someone that is depressed about their life," she said."The Victoria's Secret Angels aren't going anywhere; I'm not going anywhere; plus-sized models aren't going anywhere."
