Daria Strokous Gives Numéro Its Best Black and White Cover to Date (Forum Buzz)

The French edition of Numéro solidifies its return to form with the release of the September cover. Out is Karl Lagerfeld, who has shot Numéro‘s big March and September covers since forever, and in comes photographer Nathaniel Goldberg like a breath of fresh air. Goldberg captured model Daria Strokous on location in the streets of Paris at night wearing Chanel Haute Couture. The overall look of the image may still resemble Lagerfeld’s signature black and white aesthetic but we’re just loving Numero‘s elegant new offering.
