In Vogue: Chrystal Copland

Another week, another Perth model lands a magazine cover. First, Tom Bull cracks his first cover with The Australian's Wish magazine, for April. And now Chrystal Copland has landed her first international cover - no less than Vogue Italia, also for April. Copland is part of an ensemble cast posing in the magazine's 'Prom Night' cover story, shot, as always, by the inimitable Steven Meisel. There are two covers; one, complete with freakish masks. So far no good highres versions have appeared, but above is an out-take and below are both versions of the final cover in lowres. And Australia's other Vogue Italia covergirls. 

Copland, as you may recall, first popped up on the international radar in September last year, when she joined the Australian model pack on the Spring/Summer 2012 runways in New York and Europe. Most notably, opening the Louis Vuitton show on the final day of the Paris shows. 

Vogue Italia is one of the world's most prestigious fashion magazines and making its cover is a major coup for any model. A number of Australian models have appeared in editorials inside the magazine at various times, but only four, by frockwriter's count, have made the Vogue Italia cover: Gemma Ward (April 2005), Miranda Kerr (September 2010), Robyn Lawley (June 2011) and now Copland.
