Hailey Baldwin is having a pretty great month: The model and celebrity offspring (redundant, we know) signed with IMG in March and released a cool, '90s-inspired campaign for Tommy Hilfiger just last week. Now Baldwin has taken the next step in model ascendancy — her first major U.S. magazine cover. She's one of five "fresh faces" featured on Marie Claire's May 2016 issue, alongside ladies who are no longer exactly up-and-coming: Kylie JennerZendaya, Ellie Goulding and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. (While Mbatha-Raw is not a quite a household name like the other women, the respected actress has already appeared on the covers of Elle and Town & Country.) It seems like "fresh" is a flexible term for the magazine: Last year's edition included Iggy Azalea, Felicity Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Hailee Steinfeld and Kate Upton, all of whom were already well-established in both their careers and pop culture.

Baldwin shines on the new cover in Tommy Hilfiger (of course) and chats inside about her high-profile are-they-or-aren't-they relationship with a certain young Canadian. Meanwhile, Jenner shows off a more natural makeup look than we're used to seeing from her and wears a Hugo Boss dress — which explains why she was sitting front row at the fall show next to Marie Claire's Creative Director Nina Garcia in February.
