That festive time of year has arrived and with it come obligations. Gifts, dinners, and no shortage of celebrations. In keeping with the season the December 2017 issue of Vogue Italia has devoted its sprawling cover story to a celebration to end all celebrations. Enlisting photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, a pair who know a thing are two about parties, the two wade into the deep end of a party well under way. Amongst the invited guests, Caroline de Maigret, Kennah Lau, Binx Walton, and Aube Jolicoeur make this a social occasion worth attending. The story really picks up when Caroline (pictured) makes her entrance, temptress that she is holding an apple, and wearing a suit by Céline. Off to the left, that is Kennah sipping on a drink and wearing a single-shouldered ruffle dress by MSGM. As life-affirming as these pictures are, it is the subjects who cut across a wide and glittering swath of the modeling world who are worthy of celebration. Raise those glasses high.

Also in the cover story from across the Next global network are Anja Rubik and Jamie Bochert. Visit vogue.it to see more about this story.
