An Ounce of Faith

Art Director Christopher Sollinger has said that nearly every major fashion publication rejected his latest creative endeavor, which illuminates nine model beauties for an authentic, straightforward, and virtuous visual moment inspired by the first female transgender fashion model of the 70s, Tracey ‘Africa’ Norman. Norman along with Geena Rocero, Tyra Banks, Cora Emmanuel, Hind Sahli, Soo Joo Park, Emanuela de Paula, Pyper America, and Hannelore Knuts are “The 9 Wonders of the World,” photographed by Stockton Johnson, for a special issue for Harper’s Bazaar India.

An impressive 44 designers are orchestrated by stylist Kisha C. Jones to include Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Roberto Cavalli, Victoria Beckham, Naeem Khan, Sonia Rykiel, and Christian Siriano — designers often associated with today’s most progressive movements. Sina Velke, Stoj, and Vincent Oquendo tease out the all-star cast’s natural glamour for a new dawn sensation.

In the exclusive preview below, check out Norman and Rocero as the first transgender models to front any edition of Harper’s Bazaar, ever. See all the covers here.

First Look: ODDA on Location

ODDA Magazine goes all out for Fall with a jam-packed new issue featuring eight epic covers starring Hanne Gaby Odiele, Peyton Knight, Aline Weber, Presley Gerber, Madison Stubbington, Ville Sydfors, Kasia Struss, and former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell. Working off a theme of spaces—both real and fantasy, physical and imagined—the latest edition ranges far and wide around the world in search of the new and the fascinating. Weber’s cover story takes her to the Prada store-art installation in Marfa, Texas, while Raúl Hidalgo and Marta Regidor capture Maja Salamon among the swirling curves of Gaudí’s La Pedrera in Barcelona. Gerber looks Los Angeles cool in a feature by Taylor Tupy and Lisa Jarvis, and Taylor Freeman offers some candid Polaroids of the legendary Pat Cleveland in Flatbush, Brooklyn. As ODDA proves, there is so much of the world left to explore.

Take an exclusive first look at the new issue, launching tomorrow at 10 Corso Como in Milan, below.
