The artfully directed mini-movies place a spotlight on a noteworthy beauty and allow us to experience the world of Wang from a new perspective. This season’s star, the always engaging Liberty Ross gives a candid look at her career, from her first cover fori-D Magazine, to her stint playing Ozzy Osbourne’s bride on an LP, and of course her memorable trip down Alexander’s runway.
Combine the model star power of Storm Model Management, the cutting-edge art direction of Plus Agency and what do you get?

The resplendent Kate Moss graces the cover and oozes aloof sex appeal like in Venetia Scott‘s editorial, while Cindy Crawford looks better than ever in classic black and white images. The fun doesn’t stop there of course, everyone from Andrej Pejic, Liberty Ross to Lily Cole, Jourdan Dunn, Eva Herzigova and Cara Delevingne has a chance to shine.
