The theme unusual beauty is unlikely the first to come to mind when one imagines an editorial meeting at Vogue, but then again such a potentially volatile theme could not be in better hands than it is in the May 2016 issue of Vogue Italia in a story by photographer Richard Burbridge featuring natural beauty Julie Hoomans. Titled “Beauty Limits,” the Robbie Spencer-styled story certainly pushes the envelope without getting too silly. Case in point, Julie (pictured) is shown wearing a strapless sheath dress by Marni and sporting hair that has been treated by Recine with shampoo and conditioner by Medavita ß-Refibre. There is nothing unusual about Julie, save for her unusually perfect measurements and flawless skin.
