With exciting interviews, backstage reportages and glamorous shoots, STERN FASHION magazine conveys plenty of fascination – and informs readers entirely en passant about the latest trends. The mix is a big success among designers and brands alike, just as much as among its readers. And due to this great success, the STERN supplement has expanded its coverage : Since spring 2021, each supplement also presents topics in the areas of beauty, watches and jewelry.

Ralph Mecke photographed the cover spread for FRENCH magazine with enchanting Chloé Anaïs Lopes, with creative retouch by RECOM POST. Production was taken care of by Frédéric Bidoyet, with styling by Ingo Nahrwold c/o BIGOUDI, hair by Hauke Krause and make-up by Jochen Pahs.

Chloé Lopes Gomes from Nice, France, is the first black student from France to study at the renowned Bolshoï Ballet Academy in Moscow and was the first and only black ballerina in the Berlin Ballet. When her contract was not extended last year, she went public with claims of racism and sparked discussions about ballet, traditions, institutions and skin color around the world. Since August, she has been dancing for the Opéra national du Rhin (OnR). On the cover motif, Chloé is wearing Kim Jones’ first collection for Fendi.
