Noted fashion photographer David Bellemere was behind the lens for the shoot, described as a meeting between “grown-up sophistication” and “cheeky chic” framed by lots of “diaphanous lace and chiffon.”
Palvin, 19, broke into the line up of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last year, and has been on the rise ever since. She started modeling at the tender age of 13, and spent a few years in the Orient to get some experience.
She exploded on the fashion scene in 2010 with her runway debut during Milan Fashion Week, exclusively for Prada. In a major coup, she also opened the pre-Fall 2011 Chanel show.
She has since walked for a number of top brands including Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Emanuel Ungaro, Christopher Kane, Julien MacDonald, Jeremy Scott, Vivienne Westwood and Etro.
In the Elle shoot, she wears dresses by Jonathan Saunders, Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Tom Ford, Bottega Veneta and Altuzarra.
