In front of the lens of Andreas Ortner, model Vanessa Axente graces the September 2023 cover of ELLE Germany in a fashion-forward shot. Dressed in a strappy top, loose-fitting shimmering pants, and lace-up shoes, she brings an elegant flair to the cover that is hard to ignore.
Inside the magazine, she models sophisticated ensembles that range from lace-adorned tops to sequined dresses and embroidered coats. These outfits were all styled by Pia Leonie Knoll. Dark eye makeup expertly applied by makeup artist Sina Stoelzle and spiky buns crafted by hairstylist Georgio Stsiogkas channel a retro-inspired style.
Ortner’s previous work includes capturing Leni Klum in Dior Beauty looks for the fashion publication.
