The Element of Surprise - Kayla Scott

Vogue Italia and photographer Steven Meisel deliver the standout cover reveal of 2015 with an unexpected choice of cover subject African-American newcomer Kayla Scott for its May 2015 issue. Meisel captures a softer feminine side of the androgynous beauty with Scott reclining in a serene pose on a bed while decked out in a delicately beaded beige dress. The Ford Model Management newbie headlines a cast of modelling's most original faces including platinum blondes Eilika Meckbach and Julia Cumming, the other-worldly Cierra Skye and Molly Bair, baby-faced Damaris Goddrie and Willow Hand, and the fearless Tamy Glauser. 'Food for Thought' encapsulates modelling's recent predilection for an unconventional beauty that bucks industry norms. With the continual flow of new faces infiltrating modelling's ranks each season, modelling trends appear to have come full circle with standout faces being championed by designers and casting directors. Scott's mesmerising Vogue Italia cover appearance will no doubt raise her modelling stakes following recent editorial bookings for Interview, Love, V Magazine, and AFL not too mention a stunning Fall/Winter 2014 campaign debut for Balmain. With her cool tough androgyny, towering frame, and striking chiselled profile, Scott is likely to remain prescient in the minds of the fashion folk for some time to come.
