Bella Hadid and Taylor Hill Are 'Instagirls' on 'Vogue' Paris's September Cover

This comes two years after American "Vogue" employed the same cover line.

If you're anything like us, you've probably been keeping up with all the September covers to hit the Internet, and so far we've seen everything from a Gucci-clad Kendall Jenner on American Vogue to a very embellished RiRi on W. However, Vogue Paris's September 2016 "Génération Instagirls" issue — which the book revealed Saturday on Instagram — was an instant throwback. 

If you remember, American Vogue utilized this exact theme two years ago on its September 2014 cover, starring not two, but nine Instagirls, including Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls and more.

This September's American Vogue cover with Jenner again continues the predictable trend of casting models with large social media followings. To give you an idea of the digital influence that Jenner (and this group of Instagirls) have, keep this in mind: at the time this post was written, American Vogue's September cover garnered 145,000 Instagram likes on its own account. Jenner's post of the cover has 1.4 million.

But as far as Vogue Paris's September issue is concerned, it's worth noting that this marks Hadid's fourth international Vogue this year alone. At 19, Hadid has graced the Turkish edition's May issue, followed by a one-two punch of Vogue China's August cover and Vogue Japan's September spot. (Oh, and Glamour's September cover, too.)

Hill's not far behind, either. The Victoria's Secret Angel has walked high-fashion runways, nabbed campaigns for Juicy Couture, Versus Versace and Miu Miu and most recently became the latest face for Topshop. The bottom line? Both Hadid and Hill are hardworking mannequins du moment and are wholly deserving of this achievement. Carry on, ladies.
