      Is she channelling her inner Janelle Monae with that hair? Otherwise, pretty.

      • RedRaven617

        That was my first thought too!

        • NOLA_gal

          Right? I saw the photo, and thought, “She stole Janelle’s hair!” She looks great, though.

      • musicandmochi

        I’m more miffed at the vapid headlines and the awkward cover outfit. Those granny panties make me weep.

        But yes, she looks great, and I actually really like that hair on her.

    • MilaXX

      I like how lanky and bendy her limbs seem to be.My fav is the last pose.

      • barbarienne

        OT1H, I agree with you. OTOH, it’s as if the photographer just kept shouting, “Give me marionette with the strings cut!” over and over. I think I like the last pose best because that and the 1st after the cover shot are the only ones where she’s not positioned at the whim of gravity.

        That last pose shows the difference between “languid” and “limp.” Beautiful, indeed.

        • CakesOnAPlane

          I keep imagining Tyra producing this shoot with all her “broken down doll” directives.

      • Sobaika

        I’m pretty sure she’s a former ballerina. That kind of awareness of your body must be part of why she can work a camera.

        • luluransom

          She is. She was in “Center Stage” when she was a teenager. Worth a watch if you’re into that ‘teen dancers and their struggles’ sort of thing. Which I so am.

          • fursa_saida

            That movie is classic.

    • Laura Renee

      Maybe this is the wrong site for this comment, but I am dying for someone to Hawkeye Initiative that second-to-last one of her in the light blue dress. Please.

      • musicandmochi

        I FLOVE Hawkeye Initiative! You get an emphatic thumbs-up from me :)

        • Laura Renee

          Hee, yay. The Hawkeye Initiative is great for so many reasons, but especially because it opens your eyes to how STUPID (and helpless, submissive, male-gazy) women’s poses are in so many photoshoots.

    • Danielle

      I really dig the second shot. She’s a tall drink of water.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Cover shot is a no, everything inside absolutely makes up for it.

    • hughman

      Honey, just hold tight one sec. Yeah, your dress is caught on the chair. Be still and I’ll just work it out.

    • Diego!

      I love her last picture. It’s a piece of art. Amazing!

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      The editorial knows what to do for the beautiful angles of her body.

    • maretha2

      I feel like her right arm looks strange in all of these shots. Overall she looks gorgeous but that arm is distracting me.

      • Trickytrisha

        Dunno if her arms were ‘shopped to look slimmer or they are naturally that way, but the effect here seems to make her hands look overly large. Other than that, these are stunning.

      • housefulofboys

        The first three pictures, especially, I thought she had broken her arm…?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      Second time recently that I have noticed bare feet in a spread. I kind of like it. Better than looking at tortured feet crammed into high heels.

    • Tatiana Luján

      She looks like Nefertiti in the last picture.

    • ashtangajunkie

      She’s a real beauty.

    • lalahartma

      She is not a model, however!

    • marcia miller

      I really hate the second to last pose. She looks like a broken doll. And the cover is hiddy – all of it – the clothes and the pose. But I do love that last shot!

    • nyazgirl

      I may be the odd one out, but I positively hate the campaign. She’s gorgeous….and maybe they’re going for that 70’s retro vibe. But I think it’s all just trite and derivative.

    • Glam Dixie

      That last shot is lovely but in most of these I don’t think she is looking her best, or even that close to it.

    • Milos Mom

      Wow. Best I have ever seen her look. She needs to steal that stylist and lock her away in her closet!

    • Imasewsure

      Love the fierce shots at the beginning… meh on the broken doll stuff.

      Luv huh though…

    • marlie

      Miss Zoe has been missing the mark on the red carpet lately, so it nice to see a return to her proper fashionista form here.

    • quiltrx

      Love the second picture

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Don’t love the confused puppy pose, but my LORD is she gorgeous.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Can she and Ashley Madekwe do something together please? The thing I like most about these, is that with the exception of the cover, all the clothes look really comfy.

    • decormaven

      Last shot is gorgeous; others, not so much.

    • Kathy

      Wow, is she beautiful. She’s got a gorgeous face and figure. Her skin, hands, feet–well, everything really–are perfect. The fashions in these shots are more complimentary than what she’s been wearing on the RC. The poses are a little odd, but overall, this is great.

    • lifeisastory

      I hate that hair so much, I can’t focus on anything else.

    • NMMagpie

      Beautiful images. Clearly, she is still dancing.

      On an editorial note, I am surprised her neck was not photoshopped smooth in that second shot.

      LOVE this.
