Summer is in full swing so it’s hard to think of dreadful, chiller temps. Miuccia Prada keeps it cheery for the upcoming season of Miu Miu going to the bayous of New Orleans for an Indian Summer setting for her latest campaign shot by Alasdair McLellan. Actress Naomie Harris joins the legendary Kate Moss, along with sisters Adwoa and Kesewa Aboah, Missy Rayder, Jean Campbell, Eliza Cummings, Jasmine Daniels, Rose Daniels, and Lily Nova to capture the feel good vibes of the collection. Styled by Katie Grand in kitschy furs and 40s style printed frocks while audience to the Preservation Hall Brass Band’s spirited tunes, collaged imagery conjures uncanny feelings of the past as we look towards fashion’s (and the World’s) future.
This is the editorial by Bettina Rheims with Stella Lucia, looking nothing but luscious as a steely, red-lipped blonde bomb for Dazed Magazine. Styled by Charlotte Collet the looks are so half-way barely there and excessive still, perhaps it’s Stella’s end-all pout or Rheims’ direction bent on bad manners. Bad, but so good–and hard to look away. Preview it below.
V Magazine wears their heart on their sleeve in the latest issue, singing the praises of gorgeous Grace Elizabeth, heralding her as “the next supermodel of the world”. Not a stretch considering she has her own brand of dazzle that’s landed her in endless top tier bookings. The Florida-girl’s career has got legs, strutting her onto the Hot List with her demand showing no signs of slowing and, well, why would it? She’s got just the combination of charm and downright beauty that makes a model major–maybe super. V solidifies their statement with black and white visuals by Nathaniel Goldberg, styled by Tom Van Dorpe in fall’s best. Point taken. Exclusively preview the editorial below. The issue V 108 will hit newsstand on July 6th.

After a stellar start on the runways last February, Somali-American Halima Aden has shattered conventional beauty standards while winning the hearts of the fashion elite. The 19-year-old new face has made history being the first model to wear hijab for the covers of Allure Magazine, Vogue Arabia, and CR Fashion Book. Breaking barriers is nothing new to the Gen-Z teen who wore hijab and a burkini during the Miss Minnesota pageant before getting signed to a major agency. Diversity is beauty and with Aden’s stellar looks and charming smile she’s sure to go far!
Brazil is a country of many facets, many of them largely unknown to the wider world, and Made in Brazil Magazine is taking the opportunity with its eleventh issue to spotlight a city that has long been in the shadow of international hotspots like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Shot entirely in Salvador, a city in the coastal Bahia region which served as the country’s first capital, the new edition features—with the exception of the recognizable cover star Marlon Teixeira—exclusively models from the city itself. Newcomer Pietro Baltazar makes his mark with his buzzed and bleached hairstyle, photographed by Philippe Vogelenzang and styled by David Vandewal, who also shot most of the rest issue. Rising photographer Akira Cravo shares a portfolio of recent snapshots from the city, offering a more candid view on the vibrant metropolis. Capturing Salvador’s many sides, from its cobblestone streets to the sun-soaked beach to striking architecture, Made in Brazil takes the opportunity to showcase a less prominent but equally vibrant corner of its native land to a global audience always in search of the new and unexplored.
