Damaris Goddrie flies the flag on our April cover for women everywhere, both as a representative of diversity within the industry and as a reflection of effortless cool, proving all that matters this season is to do your thing and own it. Since debuting in 2014 for J.W.Anderson's pre-Fall collection, the 19-year-old Dutch model has fronted campaigns for Zara, Versus, Coach, Kenzo and Topshop. In AW16 alone, she walked for 40 designers. As the fashion industry begins to truly celebrate individuality and greater diversity in its casting, Damaris – with her fresh face and short curly hair – has come along at just the right time.
Anne Vyalitsyna, known to all as Anne V, is a 5'10" Russian supermodel who once posed for the cover of Vogue. She’s a woman with a face so coveted—by the likes of Chanel and Calvin Klein—that she fronted a reality series called The Face. Anne V, who has been a staple of high fashion magazines, is in the midst of a reemergence. The proof is in the pages—captured here by Gilles Bensimon on a boat in Saint-Tropez.

If you happen to be one of Barbara Palvin's 4.2 million Instagram followers, you might imagine that her days off are spent perfecting her enviable pout in a series of luxury hotel suites, flying in helicopters, or taking romantic trips by vaporetto across the Venice lagoon. Indeed, the 23-year-old model has had a particularly glamorous year: The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue's 2016 Rookie of the Year and face of Armani’s Acqua di Gioia stunned on red carpets at the Venice Film Festival; she's shot a number of top secret campaigns and posed for L’Oréal Paris, where she's the beauty brand's youngest-ever spokesperson.
Gracing the pages of Vogue China’s January 2016 issue, Ming Xi heads to a dreamy outdoors setting for this fashion editorial. Photographer Gilles Bensimon captures the Chinese model in a mix of knitwear and elegant dresses styled by Gillian Wilkins. For beauty, Ming Xi keeps it natural wearing her hair in a loose ponytail thanks to hairstylist Mark Hampton with a barely there makeup look courtesy of Justine Purdue.
Get to know model Ginta Lapina. Nineties nostalgia is in the air. Kick it old school with logo vest tops, rave-ready trainers and rainbow bright swimwear. And the one must-have beach accessory for SS16? Bucket hats.
Jasmine Tookes has spent a good portion of the last year draped in $3 million worth of diamonds and emeralds, trailed by a security guard, and jetting from New York to Paris and back again. Christened a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2015, last year she rocketed to the pinnacle of lingerie model-dom when she was chosen by the brand to don its jeweled "Fantasy Bra"—which is a very big deal, thank you very much. It's like going from rookie to MVP in just two seasons, and Tookes is elated. The fact that she's only the third black model to score that honor—after Tyra Banks and Selita Ebanks—is icing on the cake.
Andreea Diaconu is one of those chameleon-like models who defies type-casting. In Chloé's fall campaign, she plays a gypset Thelma to Sasha Pivovarova’s Louise wearing a decadent mixed-fur coat; for Ralph Lauren Collection, she’s to the manor born in a dove-gray turtleneck and languid floor-length skirt. The 23-year-old Romanian beauty—who, in a sure sign of her broad-reaching crossover appeal, has also added the cover of Vogue to her fast-growing resume.
