Beautiful Stranger - Grace Mahary

The Fall/Winter 2013 issue of Bon Magazine showcases the hypnotic beauty of Eritrean model Grace Mahary on the teeming streets of New York City. Photographer Ward Ivan Rafik captures Mahary's otherworldly presence in spite of her futile attempts to blend in with the chaotic urban surrounds. Mahary's lithe 180 cm frame and exquisite caramel skin tone provide the perfect canvas for a selection of pristine white ensembles styled by Zara Zachrisson from the Fall/Winter 2013 collections of Alexander Wang, Celine, Proenza Schouler, Stella McCartney, and 3.1 Phillip Lim. The serene almost somnambulant beauty of Mahary is in stark contrast to the frenetic action that pervades the urban backdrop of each image. IMA had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Mahary last year during the Spring/Summer 2013 show season, and is delighted to see the IMG repped beauty converting her runway traction to substantial blue chip editorial bookings. Mahary is off to a blistering pace at the Spring/Summer 2014 collections having appeared in 19 shows in New York, and looks set to continue her dream run in London walking for J.W. Anderson, Richard Nicoll, Preen, Matthew Williamson, Erdem, Jonathan Saunders, and L'Wren Scott.
