South Sudanese model Adut Akech Bior certainly seems to be the girl of the moment. Having closed the Chanel Haute Couture show earlier this year, now she is revealed as Vogue’s December cover girl.
This young, baby-faced, stunning model has also been nominated for Model of the Year at the 2018 Fashion Awards. It’s no surprise that Edward Enninful, the new leader behind British Vogue and the man crediting with revamping its entire image would choose Adut to close out what has been a year full of incredible covers.
After being confirmed as the new editor-in-chief of British Vogue in April, the Ghanaian-bornEdward Enninful unveiled his first cover which featured British- Ghanaian supermodel and activist Adwoa Aboah as the cover girl. Since then, Edward has constantly committed himself to promoting diversity and progressiveness at the magazine
Adut also became the second black model, ever, to close a Chanel Haute Couture show. The statuesque model stepped out in Paris to close the show and make history in such a short career span
Adut’s cover gives off a vintage 80’s vibe as the model is pictured wearing a green and black hat with a green veil. Just pictured is the model’s shoulders clad in a dusty pink jacket with mint green ruffle detailing.
Adut’s stunning cover is one of 4 special covers commissioned for Edward Enninful’s first ever Vogue UK December issue. The other models include veteran British supermodel, Stella Tennant, Saffron Vadher and Primrose Archer.
