NEW YORK — Modeling has always been about transformation. It’s just what models do and Sedona Legge is no exception in the Gucci Fall 2017 global advertising campaign by Glen Luchford. Last week when first glimpses of the high-fashion-meets-science-fiction campaign became public, the range of that transformation was also made plain. “Being turned into something different every day was just so unique. Who can say they were a green alien, a pink alien, a tan glamour girl…” asked Sedona, the answer of course being her. “So I would say I’m a bit of a Gucci girl. I am really excited about it and so eternally grateful.” The myriad roles Sedona plays in the campaign, whether being cradled in the arms of the Creature from the Black Lagoon or beamed in the iconic transporter from the original Star Trek TV series, were no doubt wide ranging, but for the same part looked effortless by this model and actress with a bona fide IMDb profile.

A year ago Sedona starred in the feature film The Shallows (2016) and months later in the beginning of this year made her runway debut as a worldwide Gucci exclusive. In May, Sedona followed up her debut with a further appearance on the runway for Gucci in Alessandro Michele’s resort show. Fast forward to last week and there she is in what is shaping up to be the campaign hit of the season. The Gucci Girl title is not unwarranted, in fact it was rather well earned someone as committed to her twin crafts of modeling and acting as Sedona is.

In addition to otherworldly beauty, Sedona is thoughtful and compassionate, two qualities that belie her young age. Born in the seaside community of La Jolla, California, Sedona’s outlook has always been global thanks in part to her dual American and Australian nationality. She channels this genuine concern and empathy into her daily life as a practicing vegan. Lover of animals that she is, Sedona proudly welcomed a new kitten named Poseidon into her life for her 18th birthday in January of this year. The world is Sedona’s, who reminds us all of the immense possibility of transformation.
