Ironic title notwithstanding, Sara Grace Wallerstedt is downright angelic in this Vogue Italia beauty feature shot by Karim Sadli. The ethereal Hot List stunner is both glam and natural, graphically bold and softly pure in Chanel Beauty as she joins Leonard Mushiete in images crafted by master face painter Lucia Pica. Whether it’s a soft orange-red lip or gilded lids outlined in white, the freckled beauty carries each look with grace. And can you be surprised? It’s in her name.

Take a peek at some of the looks below in the January issue.

Assa continues her streak in Vogue Italia

Remember when we first saw Assa Baradji on Balenciaga’s runway just a few months ago? The feline beauty has since been bagging a number of cool castings and it’s certainly easing the 16-year-old into model-ready shape. We saw her in Jacquemus‘ campaign just a minute ago and now she’s between the pages of Vogue Italia photographed looking her best self by Harley Weir, alongside fellow potential-packed newcomer Dorit Revelis. Beginner’s luck?–Doubt it. Check out the editorial below.

If anyone is going to make florals in Spring groundbreaking it’s Jeremy Scott for Moschino. For the Spring 2018 campaign shot and styled by Steven Meisel and Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele respectively, the American designer makes sure the Moschino woman gets her flowers while she can still smell them. Naomi Campbell‘s black panther moves and Liya Kebede‘s stunning presence lead the way on the catwalk as new-gen leaders Adut Akech, Aube Jolicoeur, and Yasmin Wijnaldum try not to skip a beat. With a beauty assist from Guido and Pat, the delightfully camp advertising brings the fun back to fashion the way only Meisel can.

An Experimental City Sets The Stage for Miu Miu’s Latest Campaign

What is fashion but a grand ole experiment to see what sticks? The brutalist architecture of the experimental city of Arcosanti sets the scene for the new Miu Miu campaign for Spring 2018. Shot by Alasdair McLellan in Arizona, Miuccia Prada calls the usual model suspects Elle Fanning, Adwoa Aboah, Olivia Anakwe, Edie Campbell, Oumie Jammeh, Faith Lynch, Rianne van Rompaey, and Cameron Russell for a collection that is naughtily proper. What is notable is outside of their sheer beauty, many of the talent have used social media to promote progressive platforms whether it’s Aboah’s progress with mental health media platform, Gurls Talk or Fanning’s active status in gender equality-promoting program, REALgirl or Russell and Campbell’s whistleblowing on the rampant sexual abuse in fashion. It seems the Miu Miu girl has taken a stand.

Vogue Germany’s cover girls Anna, Raquel, Grace and Faretta face off

Vogue Germany‘s multiple February covers features a mega-beauty foursome to marvel at–It’s also a welcome departure from the glossy’s usual more-polished covers. Model’s models Anna Ewers, Raquel Zimmermann, Grace Elizabeth and Faretta effortlessly command Daniel Jackson‘s lens looking their most natural selves with deliberately untouched-looking beauty by Ward Stegerhoek and Romy Soleimani. Some might say stripping it down leaves it shy of being eye-catching, but when you have four of the most natural glamorous faces to work with let their looks do the heavy lifting. The many-paged inside editorial styled by Julia von Boehm adds any wanted drama. So who did less best?
