There are few models in recent years whose careers have taken off as quickly as Gigi Hadid's — whether it's due to her masterful use of social media, her cameos on her mother's reality show "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," or her near-flawless looks, the 19-year-old model has accomplished more in a year than many do in a lifetime. (In case you missed her last major coup, she was one of the 12 women featured in the 2015 Pirelli calendar.)

Now, it looks like the Hadid family has another supermodel on the rise in the form of Gigi's 18-year-old sister, Bella, who signed with IMG models (the same agency as her sibling) earlier this year. While she's recently moved to New York for college and has become a fixture on the fashion scene — you may remember she hit up Alexander Wang's secret Fashion Week after-party with her pals Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin — things are starting to get serious on the career front. 

In addition to being featured in the new issue of Vogue (which Hadid teased on her Instagram), she's scored her first fashion magazine cover. The December/January issue of hip French glossy Jalouse, which is known for spotting cool, up-and-coming talents, stars Hadid wearing head-to-toe Moschino by Jeremy Scott, which seems more than appropriate for the California-born girl. We're thinking this is just the beginning of very big things for Bella — she's on the very top of our "ones to watch" list.

Read on for a preview of Hadid's issue and for some behind-the-scenes snaps from her shoot.
