Rose Cordero in Vogue Paris March 2010

Vogue Paris continues to break the mold, its March cover features an arresting shot of Rose Cordero, looking absolutely regal in Vuitton. The cover is a great tribute to Spring’s military inspired looks and Rose oozes strength and confidence in these Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott’s stylized images. In addition, Rose is also the first black model to get a solo cover of Vogue Paris since Liya Kebede back in 2002, which makes this cover a landmark.

The stunning 18-year old’s strength and confidence bring the pieces to life, which include a snakeskin belt around her neck, a navy blue jumpsuit and half-corset around her waist. It is with no surprise that this incredible model and cover are already making waves in the blogosphere.

The young Domincan’s time in the industry has been relatively short as she started her modeling career walking for the 2008 Dominican Republic Fashion Week. Soon after she was signed to Wilhelmina Models in New York. Now she is currently signed with Supreme Management in New York and Women Management in Milan. Indeed she continues to make great gains gracing the cover of V magazine and appearing in editorials for American Vogue, Teen Vogue, Italian Vogue and W Magazine to name a few.

Since her debut at the fall Burberry Show in Milan (Feb 2009) she has also walked for MaxMara, Francesco Scognamiglio, and Louis Vuitton in Milan and Paris. Since then her star has only continued to shine brighter as she also Walked the spring 3.1 phillip lim, Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Louis Vuitton shows in New York and Paris (Sep 2009).
