Sasha Pivovarova Vogue Paris
Holy monkeys. How unbelievable does Sasha Pivovarova (The Universe’s Next Top Model, to be real) look on the October 2011 cover of Vogue Paris? She is glowing in a Marilyn Monroe-feeling Atelier Versace number; props to photographer geniuses Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Joan Smalls Grafitti
I absolutely adore this vivacious October 2011 cover of Elle UK. “The Model Issue“, as it is otherwise being offered, is fronted by the always-effortless Joan Smalls who appears to have graffitied “Girl Power” onto the wall in one way or another. Her Alexei Hay-lensed, velvet-heeled stance just screams all the sorts of fierce that Tyra Banks tries to drill into the Next Top Model wannabes.

Nargis Fakhri
If you’re a fan of America’s Next Top Model (which I, sadly, am), you have more of a chance of recognizing Vogue India‘s latest cover model than anyone in the industry. It’s Season 2‘s Pakistani/Czech beauty, Nargis Fakhri. Though she didn’t fare well in the reality show (see below), she is about to make quite a name for herself in Bollywood as Ranbir Kapoor‘s romantic interest/female lead in “Rockstar“. I adore colouring of the cover and love that nothing is in place to distract from her ethnic beauty. Wishing her a Freida Pinto-esque rise to success.
