Climate change is very much now. As temperatures climb year after year, regions of the planet are likely going to be uninhabitable. MIT has predicted as much for South Asia by the year 2100. A full third of earth’s landmass is already desert, however not all of which is the post-apocalyptic hellscape of the future. Namibia in fact is one such place situated along the southern Africa’s Atlantic coast. The country is breathtaking and is given its due in the 11 May 2018 issue of ELLE France in a story starring Spanish stunner Lucia Lopez. Swedish photographer Åsa Tällgård and stylist Hortense Manga join forces to create a fashion editorial for spring that aspires to equal Lucia’s natural beauty. Namibia, known for its fairy circles, arid grass formations native to the Namib Desert, is no stranger to awe-inspiring beauty. Throw in Lucia dressed in a flowing silk dress by Alberta Ferretti (pictured) stood amongst the sweeping desert sands and splendor knows no bounds. One day in the near future it will be too hot for life, but today anyway there is another “Danse de Voiles” to behold.
