British model Adwoa Aboah has been unveiled as the next cover star of Vogue Arabia, stealing the spotlight in the April edition in a show stopping Alexander McQueen dress.
The model and women’s rights activist hails from an influential family in the British fashion industry — her mother, Camilla Lowther, founded photography agency CLM while her father, Charles Aboah, is a sought-after location scout.
The 25-year-old model was interviewed by Dior’s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri in the issue, who says, “Adwoa may be young, but she has made clear choices, and her engagement is genuine and incredibly powerful.”
This is not, however, Aboah’s first high fashion rodeo — she has landed several coveted covers in the past, including Vogue’s Italian, Mexican, US, Spanish and British editions.
The model’s stunning pictures were shot by New York-based artist and photographer Cass Bird in a session directed by Vogue Arabia’s Katie Trotter.
She has joined the hallowed ranks of international beauties who have lent their star power to the cover of Vogue Arabia, including Gigi Hadid, Halima Aden, Nancy Ajram and modeling legend Iman.
Apart from modeling, Aboah, who previously suffered from a drug addiction and depression, is also the founder of Gurls Talk, a platform that encourages young women to share their stories on social media and at planned events.
