Out Of Africa 

Isabel Lucas becomes wild at heart for Vogue Australia’s December issue.

Meerkats and bunnies get me every time for their adorable sweetness. It was the above shot of Isabel Lucus surrounded by meerkat cuteness that first captured my attention. Her wardrobe mix of ladylike chic and electric prints kept me hooked.

Shot in the Kalahari Desert by Max Doyle, Isabel Lucas shines in looks from Prada, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Tommy Hilfiger and more. With a slight 60’s edge, I adore the Prada cotton blend coat and sweet check dress (pictured below). I especially adore the Louis Vuitton hatbox! Timeless perfection!

p.s. Now planning a trip to Africa just to sit amongst those adorable meerkats!

Happy Sunday! xx
