The April 2015 issue of W does not parse its words and in fact is committed to answering who is next and what is next. For reasons that have everything to do with the trademark held by the company whose logo sits atop this page, the question of what is next or rather, #WhatsNext, has long been of particular interest. What is next in this regard concerns decisions about what to wear this spring. Enter Grace Hartzel, who stars in a 12-page story photographed by Mario Sorrenti. Styled by Melanie Ward, the story titled “Out of Uniform” pays tribute to this season in jackets and leaves the rest open to interpretation. The 1970s rocker chic vibe almost immediately takes root with Grace wearing a wide-brimmed leather hat, trench coat, and boots, all with plenty of embellishments that make this and nearly every other look unmistakably Grace. #WhatsNext? Grace is, Grace always is.
