“I want the magazine to be a love letter to Arabia … I want to give the reader images to be inspired, beauty, well-being and lifestyle. The world is saturated with information and publications are weaker Due to this problem […] ‘Vogue’ Arabia is going to be very strong. It is scary and exciting at the same time. My life is going to change as a publisher, maybe I can not travel as much as before because my new job entails an important Responsibility, but it will be magnificent. ”
Married to sultan bin Fahad bin Nasser, 42 years old, with three children, Deena Aljuhani has become the first director of Vogue Arabia, and has chosen Gigi Hadid to be the protagonist of the first issue of the magazine because the model represents the dynamic and entrepreneurial generation of tomorrow.
On the cover, we can see Gigi behind a beautiful veil that covers part of her face and part of her makeup face.

The number of the magazine of Vogue Arabia is epic. It represents multiculturalism and tries to expose creativity and to present a different part of the world together with its constant evolution.
