“What’s it feel like—you walk into a room, it’s like in the middle of winter, and you’re the sun?” Though Abbey Lee is the one questioning Elle Fanning midway through the forthcoming feature film The Neon Demon (2016), viewers with even a cursory knowledge of fashion will know the female actor herself knows what it feels like. Abbey Lee for any unfamiliar readers reading this has been the very sun she speaks for the better part of her illustrious modeling career. Abbey Lee’s twin professions of modeling and film acting come together in director Nicolas Winding Refn’s thriller and are at their glossy best for the cover of V102 photographed by Steven Klein and styled by Patti Wilson. Abbey Lee is pictured wearing Calvin Klein Collection and assuming a pose that looks positively lethal. The Neon Demon opens in cinemas Friday, 24 June 2016.
