Shanelle Nyasiase Is Green Goddess Elegance By Txema Yeste For Vogue Spain

The high impact of Sudanese and South Sundanese models — and African-born women generally — has been breathtaking over the last year. Recent editorials suggest that no one — least of all great beauties like Shanelle Nyasiase — is taking his or her foot off the gas pedal. It’s as if the fashion industry has finally had a moment of long overdue reckoning, and the results are just magnificent.

Shanelle is styled by Juan Cebrián in haute couture from Valentino — the two-page appliqued halter dress; Givenchy — the blue sparkling cape; Dior — the green pleated dress above and much more holiday magnificence. Photographer Txema Yeste captures the extraordinary visual elegance in Paris — where else — as ‘Verde que te quiero verde’ for Vogue Spain December 2018./ Hair by Karim B; makeup by Tatsu Yamanaka
