As seen in V Magazine's 128 issue, American beauty and modern muse Grace Elizabeth takes center stage, showcasing how to use minimal pieces for maximum impact.

After grace-ing the cover of V125’s supermodel summer issue, top model Grace Elizabeth returns to V for a shoot by Max Papendieck. The Southern belle flexes her masterful posing skills in understated pieces styled by Ary Lappin, from an array of designers such as Chanel, Givenchy, and Emporio Armani.  

In a previous interview with V, Elizabeth articulated her ease in front of the camera, clearly evident in her latest editorial. Despite her poised appearance, the Florida native is anything but pretentious, reminiscing on childhood summers spent canoeing with her family. She made waves working with Guess and Victoria’s Secret, and has since become a Fashion Week regular — most recently Jacquemus, Michael Kors, and Jason Wu. 

For V, Elizabeth brings each simple piece to life, channeling Marilyn Monroe’s infamous skirt shot in a minimalist Tom Ford dress. There’s an intangible freshness to Elizabeth's classically beautiful face, working in harmony with her inventive body language. The 23-year-old takes advantage of her delicate bone structure and expressive eyes, giving an authentic presence to each image.
