Not every woman is capable of portraying both graceful femininity and cool androgyny with the required amount of poise and elegance. Reserving separate parts of herself as to fully indulge in each of the conflicting aesthetics, Anissa makes the transition appear effortless, managing to look splendid when rocking a deep plunge and a thigh high split, and equally beautiful when epitomizing timeless class in a pair of wide-leg pants and a tuxedo jacket.
Photographed by Peter Steele in a breathtaking location, the two worlds appear to collide in complete harmony.
Heavy cat eyes, occasionally dipped in an oasis of bright blues, are being used to emphasize the air of sophistication veiling each of the inspiring outfits put together by Shannon Meddings. Strapless dresses and fur wraps, floor sweeping tulle skirts and structured blazers, wrap dresses and wide-brimmed hats, they all strive to define elegance while still looking modern, and preserving a distinctive edge.
