Thanksgiving is less than 10 days away in the United States, which means the precipitous slide toward the festive season is only going to accelerate with every passing hour. The December 2018 issue of Vogue is wasting no time in showing its way forward with an editorial by photographer Daniel Jackson starring none other than Next’s own Grace Elizabeth and Abby Champion. Depending on the circles in which readers circulate in New York, glamour is of supreme importance. If the term sounds a bit stuffy in this day and age, then in the hands of stylist Jorden Bickham it is anything but. Sure, this story has its jewelry that comes with its own 24-hour security detail, but when paired with tank tops and microminis the ensembles read current. Compelling as all this is, see Grace and Abby on the same page make the entire endeavor not simply believable, but worthy of the holiday season itself.
