“I was really happy to
work with Ella Balinska,”
says Grace Coddington,
who styled the actor for Ella
Enchanted on page 184.
“When I discovered she was the
daughter of the beautiful
model Lorraine Pascale – who
I worked with in the ’90s –
I was even happier. She
didn’t disappoint me.”



or A Certain Romance, on
page 206, Vogue convened an
epic coterie of models to wear
the most spectacular new-
season couture. Cover star Jourdan
Dunn was a vision in Iris van Herpen;
Winnie Harlow (left) and Anok Yai
dazzled in Valentino; while Joan Smalls
and Ugbad Abdi were no less the
spectacle in Givenchy. Lineisy Montero
sparkled in show-stopping Armani
Privé; Tami Williams wore Dolce &
Gabbana; Adwoa Aboah looked divine
in Dior. Shanelle Nyasiase in Maison
Margiela Artisanal (below

Schiaparelli completed the
set, shot in the lush surrounds
of Richmond Park. “I have
always been enamoured with
18th-century British portrait
and landscape painters, and
how their work defined what
England looked like,” says
photographer Nick Knight
of his shoot. “I wanted to
redefine that with a modern
vision of Britain.”

“How can we be individuals and still be
united?” That’s the question producer, actor
and TV writer Lena Waithe poses on page 97

  • ahead of the cinema release of Queen & Slim,
    her first script for a feature film.

In Labour of
Love, on page 112,
Rachel Chavkin

  • the Tony Award-
    winning director
    of Hadestown –
    shares her moving
    experience of being
    a surrogate mother,
    and how she made
    the decision to
    give her two best
    friends a baby.

Journalist Yomi Adegoke
met Jourdan Dunn in
her west London home
for this month’s cover
interview (page 202).
“As someone who has
watched her fight
tirelessly for diversity
in fashion over the years,
it was amazing to talk
to Jourdan about the
progress that’s been
made,” says Adegoke.
“She has always fought
for what’s right, without
any of the piousness.”
