This bright, sunlit cover features the famous Estonian model in a low-cut black top from Alexandre Vauthier, with a silk flower in her hair.

This is the first Vogue cover for the 23-year-old Pedaru, who, as we speak, happens to be ranked #6 in Models.com Top 50 Models list. The young and married (!) model grew up having a keen interest for sports -and even acted as a goalkeeper on the Estonian national football team for a year- before pursuing amodelling career, when she made her debut walking for Christopher Kane’s Spring 2007 collection.

Since then several other shows followed and her enviable resume includes collaborations with many top fashion designers, like Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Christian Dior, D&G, Diane von Furstenberg, Versace and Yves Saint Laurent.

Her flawless looks have also adorned many beautiful editorials for Numéro, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, V Magazine, W Magazine, Dazed & Confused and numerous editions of Vogue worldwide.

Her editorial inside the latest issue of German Vogue is a real eye catcher, getting us in a absolutely summer mood already!
