In its November 2014 issue W eschews the elaborate and the ornate and instead goes big on beauty. “Born beautiful,” the three-panel cover boldly declares and it is difficult to argue otherwise, what with Suvi Koponen and co looking all blue steel. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the cover puts an emphasis on natural beauty complemented, but never upstaged by unfussy styling by Edward Enninful. Suvi for her part wears little more than a Levi’s denim top and a Charlie by Matthew Zink bikini bottom. Dior makeup provides the polish and the rest is left of Suvi and her wonderfully designer genes.
