Ali Stephens, Cover Virgin No More

Korean magazine Photo: Elite Model Management

After she opened Calvin Klein and closed Balenciaga, it was anyone’s guess what Ali Stephens’s first cover would be. After walking 46 shows this past season, she must have made an impression on the front-row biggies. We suspected Teen Vogue since she’s just a smiley 16-year-old herself and doesn’t do racy swimwear or lingerie shoots yet. But we were totally wrong. Korean W booked her first. (Side note: Interesting how much English text is on the cover, no?) Shot by David Byun, Stephens wears a sleeveless, peach blouse and floral skirt, with her hair piled in a large bun atop her head. Though the foreign publication doesn’t have a huge following here, Stephens will also appear in a David Sims–photographed Italian Vogue editorial come April. That one’s surely worth the hefty exchange rate. —Kendall Herbst
