rose cordero for arise

by Jeremy Danté

as one of the most stunning covers i’ve seen upon entering the new year, rose cordero of ford models appears radiantly on the cover of arise magazine. shot by john-paul pietrus, with styling by sabrina henry, cordero killed this cover entirely. with perfected cosmetic accents, beautiful bold color & immaculate bone structure- this is what a fashion cover looks like. as an african publication of style & culture, arise magazine has been in existence since their soft launch in october of 2008. with this cover, the arise team demonstrates apt ability at breaking new ground. as a publication solely focused on highlighting the achievements & happenings in africa, i applaud the team that has produced this cover. rose is one of my favorite editorial models & im always very inspired by her photographic performance. of dominican decent, rose hit the scene in 2009 & is just coming off an extremely successful runway show season. rose is a developing force as a new model, working in fashion.
