W Korea pulled out all of the stops for its March 2012 issue which marks the magazine’s seventh anniversary. Keeping in theme with the number seven, the magazine shot seven covers with seven models. W Korea typically puts one girl on the cover but this time around they went for something slightly different. Two covers include four girls, one of those ensemble covers including a Black model. This is another milestone for the publication as a Black model has never appeared on a cover before!
Anais Mali is the history making model and she is joined by Crystal Renn, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Hyoni Kang, Maryna Linchuk, Julia Nobis and Valerija Kelava all of Ford Models.
Photographer Jang Hyun Hong shot both the cover and editorial story which was produced by Pier 59 Studios Korea. Karina Givargisoff, stylist, had the pleasure of working with the candy-colored Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Set designer Donnie Myers was able to mirror the collection with an equally delicate color story of tulle set in the middle of a room of beautiful destruction. Both group covers and the editorial were retouched by our 59 Still + Motion team.
