Gigi Hadid, you are just too beautiful.

The young supermodel has always been one to make us stop and stare with her unreal gorgeousness, and her latest photo spread for Elle Canada continues to prove just how mesmerizing the 20-year-old star truly is.

The photographs, shot by Max Abadian, vary from futuristic to fun to minimalist, but all of the snapshots are absolutely flawless. With very little makeup, the prime focus of the shots seem to be Hadid's aquamarine eyes, which instantly steal all of the attention.

A few photos also flaunt Gigi's personality, one that we've all come to admire over the years, and one that her mom (and former model) Yolanda Hadid advised would help set her apart from the other models in the industry.

"I told her, 'The industry is full of the most beautiful girls in the world who deserve the job as much as you do,'" Foster told the magazine.

"To stand apart, Gigi would need to share her heart and be authentic, honest, kind, humble—and, most importantly, always be grateful to be chosen. People won't remember what you look like or what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel."

And while Gigi has definitely shown off her goofy side, she recently took a stance against cyber bullies and body-shamers.

Ahead of Paris Fashion Week, the took to Instagram to defend herself against people who have criticized her figure online.

"So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month. Yes, judgment on social media comes from people who, 99% of the time, have no idea what they're talking about, but I'm human, and I'm not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little," the blond bombshell wrote in an open letter. "I came to a realization that when one gets to this point, it's important to rethink why you're doing what you do. What your message is. What you have to say."

She continued, "No, I don't have the same body type as other models in shows. No, I don't think I'm the best at any given shows. Yes, I want to have a unique walk but I also know I have to improve. No, I'm not the first or the last model of my type in this industry

"You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I'm a hard worker that's confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change."

Foster reiterates that fact, noting that she took Gigi out of modeling as a young kid, and instead enrolled her in volleyball and horseback riding. Yolanda credits this as the reason for her daughter remaining so humble and grounded.

"It made her a hard-working competitor," the reality star told the mag, "so now when she puts her mind to something, she won't let go until she gets it."

Foster also finds it "hurtful" when people chalk up her daughter's success simply to privilege. "She has tenacity and great integrity, and she works hard to be the successful and financially independent young woman she is."

Gigi is famously friends with other high-profile celebs, including Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift, Cara Delevingne and more, and the young star explains that her "squad," as the Internet loves to call it, is mainly young women rooting for each other.

And she hopes other people follow suit.

"We talk about it a lot; it's a conversation we often have," Hadid explains to Elle.

"We want to be the generation and the group of friends known for supporting each other. 'Squad Goals' is a big social-media thing right now, and that's what we want to inspire in other groups of friends—to be proud of the power you all have when you're together, which can be amplified so much by each person. That's what has been cool about everyone's willingness to be there for each other, and we don't want to be like other generations who are infamous for their cattiness. That was cool and it worked for them and they were great. We just want to be the new generation."
