Speaking of Lineisy Montero…any excuse to see her smile will do for this page. The Winter 2016 issue of Dazed serves up the grinning Dominican in a story by photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby and stylist Robbier Spencer. “My Funny Valentine,” as the story is called of course calls to mind a certain Frank Sinatra song that Ella Fitzgerald transformed into something altogether more evocative and profound. The clothes are all drawn from the closets of Emporio Armani, which when worn by Lineisy with her hair cornrow braids work not unlike Lady Ella to make the looks something altogether more beautiful, more deeply resonant.
