Liya Kebede by Ángel Hernández

"This was a very daring outfit [Proenza Schouler A/W 15]. I took a lot of risks choosing it. It was so unconventional and everyone I showed it to was very skeptical of my choice, especially for a red carpet in Cannes! But I just trusted my guts and insisted on wearing it. And when we finally pulled the look together and figured out the hair and makeup, I knew I was right to trust myself. I felt like a superhero in this outfit, it was empowering.”
