Leave it to print to call forth spring, when forecasts have not quite caught up with the calendar. Sounding the clarion call for the season is none other than Anok Yai, who appears in the latest issue of V in a story styled by Nicola Formichetti. Since making her viral splash late last autumn, Anok has consolidated that wellspring of interest to sign with Next, star in advertising campaigns for Prada, and eventually become the first model of color to open the Prada runway show in more than 20 years. It is difficult to overstate the significance of these achievements, but rest assured this is no fluke. Her command of the page in V112 is remarkable and yet not surprising, Anok was made for this. When spring finally does take flight, it will do so on the wings of Anok Yai.
