“Discover the true passions and secrets of the Spanish top model Blanca Padilla,” promises the Instagram caption for the April 2018 cover of Harper’s Bazaar México. That sounds likes a mountain to climb, but in the editorial hands of one of Latin America’s leading publications it is but a hop, skip, and jump to the summit. Photographed by Carlos Ruizc and styled by fashion editor Gerard Angulo, the cover takes the verdant jungles of México’s Yucatán Peninsula as its backdrop. With little distraction but for the sounds of regional fauna, the location is sure to have made inroads with Blanca, her true passions, and secrets.

This is one of two covers of Blanca’s for the issue. Visit harpersbazaar.mx to see more.
