Unless she’s Coco Rocha doing an Irish jig down the Jean Paul Gaultier runway, a model’s talents beyond being physically beautiful can often go unrecognised. But when Maayan Ziv photographed fresh-faced beauty Isabella, signed to Ford models, he wanted to capture her dual talents as both a model and a professional ballerina.

The result is a hybrid of classical costume and contemporary fashion. Stylist Valeria Vald adds ballet slippers to denim shorts, or pairs converse all-stars with a tulle tutu. Natalie Ventola adds soft makeup and topknots-gone-messy in Ziv’s delicately beautiful portrait.
