As ever the details tend to take a backseat to when the story involves Grace Hartzel and photographer Patrick Demarchelier and this feature for the May 2015 issue of Vogue China is no exception. Yes, it is true, the leading fashion glossy in the People’s Republic boasts a half dozen or so pages with Grace on them, but revel in the moment over the simplicity and out-and-out beauty of this story. If the Proenza Schouler top (pictured) looks familiar, then it is because Binx wore it down the runway in September of last year, but on the page Grace with those eyes of hers makes it look all the more #musthave. Never mind the pace of economic growth in China or for that matter any other details not germane to these pages, this is Grace Hartzel.
