Divine Intervention

French beauty Anais Mali has confirmed her status as one of Anna Wintour's staple models, scoring her first only-girl editorial for US Vogue captured by Raymond Meier. Mali has a look that transcends race, being of African and Polish heritage, and of French nationality. Mali is a versatile beauty, capable of alternating with ease between haute couture looks whilst posing for Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, to sporting more consumer-friendly attire for commercial end clients like the GAP, Levis and J Crew.

I recall being transfixed the first time I laid eyes on Mali during the Spring/Summer 2011 collections. Mali's crescent shaped eyes, luminous skin, impossibly divine bone structure and engaging personality have landed her a slew of editorial appearances in V, i-D Magazine, Vogue Italia, US Harpers Bazaar, Interview and US Vogue. In an interview with Bethann Hardison conducted back in July 2010 for Vogue.it, Mali forecasts the future, "I would love to work with photographers like Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Stevn Klein, all these people that you dream of because they are such big photographers for the likes of Vogue magazine." Mali is well on her way to achieving her goals and her innate love for fashion and chic sensibility make her an attractive proposition for many designers.
