Is it any wonder Adut Akech is shortlisted to become the British Fashion Council’s Model of the Year? She has captivated us ever since she made her exclusive debut on Saint Laurent’s Spring 2017 catwalk, moving on to cover Vogue Italia, i-D and Edward Enninful’s first-anniversary issue of British Vogue. Not to mention, becoming the face of mega brands Moschino, Zara and Valentino. So we certainly can’t blame Vogue Australia for giving the December 2018 cover to the Sudan-born beauty. The magazine profiles Adut as she returns to her family home in the city of Adelaide, photographed by Charlie Dennington and styled by Jillian Davison. Dressed in a vibrant Schiaparelli number, Adut is joined by her adorable baby sister Akuol for the sweet cover, which is sure to brighten your day.

“This cover made me smile. It looks and feels so pure,” MON said.
Benn98,agreed commenting, “Ultimately it’s a beautiful cover and definitely a winner for Adut and VA. Miles ahead of the [Steven] Meisel cover. I like the bright and positive vibes, definitely very summery, and it should look unique on the Australian newsstand.”
“Love everything about this cover – Adut, her baby sister, even the flowers seem suitable here. Very bright and summery. So happy for Adut, she is having such a great year!” applauded Tauriel.
