Supermodel Adut Akech is the stunning cover girl for Elle USA‘s August 2021 issue.

For the accompanying story, Akech spoke to the publication about her childhood as a South Sudanese refugee, the bullying and racism she endured after emigrating to Australia as a child and much more.

For the feature, Akech was styled by the talented Alex White, and for the cover, the star wore a purple-and-green sequin dress from Prada’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection. For beauty, the model opted for a bold lip and muted eye makeup look, complemented by a stunning braided updo. The entire look worked perfectly, matching the aesthetics of the cover.
