With her exquisite china-doll complexion, commanding bone structure and strong but feminine stature, American supermodel Guinevere Van Seenus has an enchanting and distinctive beauty. Now 36 years old, she has enjoyed almost two decades in the spotlight, notching up global advertising campaigns for fashion powerhouses, including Prada, Kenzo and Miu Miu, as well as countless magazine covers. She is a long-term muse and confidante to the pioneering Italian photographer Paolo Roversi. And, with even her name evoking long-ago legends of the Queen of Camelot, she is the perfect ethereal yet modern muse for our exclusive fairy-tale shoot.
