emanuela de paula for vogue brazil
by Jeremy Danté
represented by marilyn management, emanuela de paula appears at the top of the year for for her native of brazil, for their division of vogue. shot by jacques dequker, the cover draws focus on de paula’s beautiful brown complexion & is well balanced with white fashion pieces contrasted to clean teal text. natural, relaxed & stylishly appropriate as a representation of brazil; the cover is a winner as is emanuela. i have very high expectations for models of color this year & have observed a greater presence in high fashion since last year. the words “black is beautiful” on this cover make me smile.
