We are in an era where Celebrities are the new models, especially when it comes to magazine covers. Well yes, magazines sell quicker when Celebs are on the cover. But don’t you miss the days when the Naomi Campbell’s, the Tyra Banks’ and the Cindy Crawford’s where just slaying the covers (Hopefully I’m not the only one).
The February 2015 issue of South Africa’s Elle Magazine features these gorgeous twin models named Suzane and Suzana Massena. As we all know February is the month of “Love” and Elle Magazine SA is celebrating love but not as cliche as we know it. The Sisterhood Issue is to commemorate the most sacred bond i.e sisterhood.
The twins were dressed in South African Designer Laduma Ngxokolo’s Autumn/Winter 2014 MBO collection. This is the first 2015 local shoot for Elle and according to Emilie Gambade (Elle’s Editor):
“When I joined ELLE in August, I had a long discussion with the team and we decided that we would definitely shoot more covers in South Africa. We have incredible talents here, excellent photographers, make-up and hair artists, and designers, and I trust my team to be able to create the most incredible covers ever. Our country is also famous for welcoming models from around the globe who come here because so many photo shoots are done with our breathtaking landscapes as a backdrop. We didn’t push anything, it happened because it was all here, available for us to shoot and share”
I couldn’t agree more, Africa is definitely blessed with diverse talent and resources. Catch the behind scenes action below:
