As the world temperatures increase up under the stresses of climate change so too does the frequency and voracity of wildfires. The Kincade and Getty Fires in San Francisco and Los Angeles in late October are but the latest to rage and release yet more carbon into the atmosphere and exacerbate an already precarious climate warming cycle. It is against this smoldering backdrop that ELLE Russia releases its December 2019 issue replete with a flaming cover featuring the incandescent Emi Red. Photographed by David Bellemère, this cover is a first for Emi, one which she takes like a seasoned professional or career pyromaniac, whichever. Emi wears a red Gucci dress and pretty much red everything else in the corresponding cover story. With so much red it is small wonder the girl from Alabama who so ignited New York Fashion Week is cast in this role. All told, the match could not have been struck better than it is here.
