Gigi Hadid declines magazine covers in order to give other models more opportunities.

The model has made appearances on the front of numerous publications, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle.

But during an interview for the March 2022 issue of InStyle, Hadid revealed that she has reached the point in her career where she would rather offer the chance to up-and-coming fashion stars.

"It's getting to this point in my career where I don't only have to take the jobs where I'm just selling clothes. Now I get to be like, 'What have I not done?' There are magazines I say no to because I'd rather another girl have an opportunity to get that cover," she shared. "I don't need to do the same cover again if someone else's career could skyrocket because of it."

Elsewhere in the chat, Hadid waded into the debate over the use of filters on social media. The blonde insisted she can understand why young girls want to appear flawless on camera, as they have been brought up seeing airbrushed photoshoots online and in magazines.

"People think that models are always going for perfection, but when I look at the computer screen, I don't check to see if I look good. I look at myself as part of the image. I think that a good model has to take her own opinion of how she looks out of the equation, because every photographer, stylist, and makeup artist is going to see what's beautiful differently. It's not authentic if you're trying to control the creative so much that you always look the same," the 26-year-old added.
