Fearless and Fashionable

March 6th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Supermodel Jacquetta Wheeler plays a bold and stylish journalist for the latest Vogue Portugal. The cinematic cover story shot by Frederico Martins imagines the English model equipped with a camera documenting the front lines. For the period-portrayal Ana Campos outfits the heroine in the latest Givenchy, Salvatore Feragamo, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Gucci–all aptly in shades of army green. Accompanied by stone-faced infantrymen, Jacquetta’s willowy hair and sharp timeless features romance the images (Lagerfeld once described her face as a Roman vase). On the pages her poses capture the air of a woman who is determined, fearless and fashionable– even in the dismalness of wartime. Now 33, Jacquetta is no novice when it comes to Vogue or the modeling industry. Discovered in 1998 at the age of seventeen by Mario Testino, she quickly found herself in French Vogue and in 1999 was on the cover of The Face naming her “Model of the Millennium.” From there she became the repeated face of Gucci, then Givenchy, landed the cover of Vogue Italia and a cover for British Vogue. With the word “Feminismo” printed across the cover in bold font the veteran shows she can easily exemplify the strong and beautiful woman now more than ever.

A Singular Beauty

April 9th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

It’s always a thrill to see a fresh face land her first major cover. Nominating Maria Borges for the May 2014 cover, Vogue Portugal takes a minimal approach and lets the rising model’s incredible features stand out. Following up back-to-back knockout turns on the Fall RTW and Spring Couture runways, Maria embodies demure elegance in a pared down cover shoot by photographer Rui Aguiar. Styled by Paulo Macedo in looks from Prada, Alaia, and Maison Martin Margiela, Maria shows off the singular grace that’s already made her a favorite at Dior, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. Adding this stunning series to her growing repertoire, this Angolan beauty is sure to have a bright future ahead of her.
