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.
