Best of 2019? Must we deign? Seeing as it is the time of year when traditionally the year in superlatives is hauled out, eyes could fair worse than training their focus on the forthcoming issue of V for a four-page feature by photographer Nathaniel Goldberg and stylist George Cortina featuring Ugbad Abdi, Abby Champion, Lineisy Montero. The trio of portraits is worth the price of admission, but also readers learn amongst other things that Ugbad fancies watching Euphoria, Abby’s smitten with Kelly Clarkson’s “Broken & Beautiful,” and shocker amongst shockers, Lineisy loses it over Korean boy band BTS. Hell of a year this has proven, 2020 could well be something.
