Carine Roitfield's no stranger to snapping up reality stars to cover her CR Fashion Book. The last issue was fronted by the queen of scripted-reality herself - Kim Kardashian. The Fashion Ed's dipped her toe in the real-life pool again to find her latest star. 

The just-announced Issue 4 cover girl is an athletic blonde 18-year-old you might recognise from reality TV show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Gigi Hadid is the daughter of Dutch model Yolanda Foster and has appeared in the programme alongside siblings Bella and Anwar and step-dad music producer David Foster. She's actually an up-and-coming fashion model, with a number of campaigns under her belt. With curly golden hair and a curvaceous figure - she also bears a striking similarity to current model fave Kate Upton.

In the CR Fashion Book shoot called 'American Fairy Tale', photographed by Bruce Weber, Gigi's seen rolling around on hay bails with hot denim-clad men as well as riding horses.

"Wow. Still feels unreal to have worked with such legends, genius photographer Bruce Weber and celebrated editor @CarineRoitfeld," posted Gigi on Instagram. "The fact that they'd shoot me for the cover of CR is beyond me. I'm so grateful. Thank you to @crfashionbook and to my team at @imgmodels for continuing to make my dreams a reality. @luizmattosimg."
