Nick Knight has shot Anok Yai and Bella Hadid for the August issue of British Vogue, in an editorial called Up in the Clouds as styled by contributing fashion editor Kate Phelan. Plot twist? It was all shot through Zoom. As Knight noted to Vogue of the logistical challenges the shoot presented: 'Nothing worthwhile is easy.'

As Vogue's Instagram notes, 'BellaHadid’s vivid Valentino gown was shipped to Pennsylvania, where she hiked up her fuchsia layers to climb trees on the family farm, all while desperately trying to maintain her 4G connection.' As for Anok Yai, she wore a 'fantastical feather-trimmed minidress' from Yves Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, and the image was taken in her apartment.

Knight also shot one of 14 landscape covers for the August 2020 issue of British Vogue - get your hands on a copy to see the full editorial, which is available on newsstands now.
