According to Gigi ‘I have Palestinian and Muslim roots only when it benefits me’. She posted a photo to her Instagram where she acclaimed the cover of the first ever edition of Vogue Arabia.
In addition to her caption of the photo she said,

There’s no better first ‘face’ to lead the charge for Vogue Arabia than Gigi.” Stated by Vogue Arabia editor in chief
