And breathe. Fashion Week in New York has given way to its London counterpart, which in turn gives this page an opportunity to check in on one of the late stars of last season, Ambar Cristal. Readers will no doubt remember her debut in October for Louis Vuitton, the runway show she opened as worldwide exclusive and later in December followed up with an appearance in the corresponding advertising campaign by Collier Schorr. Indeed, that Ambar Cristal. This week’s cover story of The Edit features the Dominican beauty, model of the moment that she is, in a spring preview story by photographer Leon Mark and stylist Morgan Pilcher. If she looks like a natural, then it is because she is. “When I walked the runway for the first time – opening the Louis Vuitton show – I felt as if I was born to do it! It was such an incredible experience.”
