So, without further a do let me introduce this months Model of the Month, Nia @ Select. Now I do have a small confession to make (for which I have already said my 3 'hail coco's). Nia is a very close friend of mine and so I do have a slight underlying personal interest in making her my MotM. However, I thought what better way to kick of a new feature than with a close friend, bros before hoes after all!
Personal friendship aside, I really do believe that Nia is one of the HOTTEST new faces to hit the industry. But don't just take my word for it. Nia has featured in campaigns for Babycakes, presentations for Orla Kiely and editorials in I-D and Test magazine.
I absolutely ADORE the Test Mag editorial (photos 4-6). I'm a complete sucker vintage style and photography and from these shots it's not hard to tell why. Styled by Lyson Marchessault and photographed by Nicholas Lawn, I really believe these looks encompass the aesthetic of the era, not to mention the fact that Nia looks truly gorgeous.
As some of you may be aware, I have been known to dabble in a spot of photography myself and I've previously had the pleasure of shooting Nia for myself. Now, I'm no Marino Testino or Annie Leibovitz but here are some of the shots I've taken of Nia in the past:
