Liya Kebede for Elle Italia
Ethiopian supermodel Liya Kebede is the cover girl for January 2010 Elle Italia. Photographed by Alexei Hay, Liya is styled in a crazy mix of gowns and rollerblades. I'm not sure about the rollerblades, but overall this editorial so works. The styling, hair and makeup--so over the top and awesome. The touch of colors in her hair and the colors in the dresses = killing me. The tough edge to these shots is great too, even as Liya's wearing haute couture gowns.
