Leading models Imaan Hammam, Taylor Hill and Anna Ewers are all smiles on Vogue UK’s February 2017 cover. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, the trio shines in looks from Saint Laurent’s spring collection designed by Anthony Vaccarello. Imaan sports a black and gold polka dot dress, Taylor shines in a wrap dress and Anna models chic separates. In the accompanying spread, the trio poses naked in a stunning black and white photograph.
In an interview, Taylor talks about her rise to Victoria’s Secret Angel stardom. “There’s always going to be that part of me that’s the girl who got scouted at 14. I was, like, the opposite of cool. Obsessed with Harry Potter. I had all this frizzy hair I didn’t know what to do with.”

Taylor continues, “I wore my sisters’ hand-me-downs, which I was too tall for, so nothing ever fitted. When this photographer saw me and told me I should model it wasn’t just me who was like, um, really? Even my parents thought – that guy’s insane.”
Imaan Hammam also shares the secret behind her success–her signature natural curly hair! “For years, I was trying to please everyone, starting with the fact that I was constantly straightening my hair,” she reveals. “Well, that was super-damaging, and after a while, I was like, ‘Uccch, I’ve got to chill out with this.’ So I started going to castings with my hair natural – big and frizzy. And that was when my career blew up.”
