Inside the issue, the 29-year-old works her best model poses in Louis Vuitton, Burberry Prorsum, Carolina Herrera, Chanel and more high-fashion looks curated by Style Director Melissa Rubini. Behind-the-scenes, it was all about creating, as our star called it, “a futuristic Katharine Hepburn look,” with a dazzling mix of elegance and embellishment using statement coats, handbags, and dresses in an array of rich textures including calfskin, silk, crocodile, tweed, python. “The shoot was a collaboration,” said makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis, who along with hairstylist Ben Skervin, created her effortless beauty looks snapped by photographer Giampaolo Sgura.
