Kaia Gerber has landed her first U.S Vogue cover photoshoot.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, has been tapped to appear alongside Adut Akech and Ugbad Abdi on the front of the April 2020 issue of the publication.

Titled Beauty without Borders, the edition is focused on celebrating models from 26 different nations, including Fran Summers, Anok Yai, Liu Wen, and Vittoria Ceretti, and accordingly, Kaia could not be more thrilled to be in the mix.

"My first american vogue cover!" she captioned a photo of the cover on her Instagram page. "@voguemagazine april issue by the endlessly inspiring @tylersphotos. words cannot describe what this moment means to me, and to share it with women who empower me every day makes it even more special @iamugbad @adutakech I feel so lucky! thank you to everyone who made this happen! girl power (sic)."

Previously, Kaia appeared on the cover of the April 2016 issue of Paris Vogue alongside her supermodel mother and fronted the October 2019 cover of British Vogue.

The new photoshoot was helmed by Tyler Mitchell, with the models styled by Camilla Nickerson.

And in an accompanying article, the brunette beauty opened up about how she wants to use her public platform and large social media following to inspire young people to educate themselves about politics.

"With all the information that's out there, we can't claim ignorance anymore," the 18-year-old insisted. "My generation sees it as their duty to educate themselves, to speak up - we won't be silenced by anyone.

"When you have a big platform, it seems irresponsible not to use it for good."
