Black #15: Arthur Belebeau and Vittoria Cerciello shoot Michelle Buswell's 25 money girl ranking is the list of the biggest earning models currently working and we're proud to say that we've had two Black cover girls - Valentina Zelyaeva and Rosie Huntington-Whitely - who are currently ensconced on that list. With the publication of Black #15 a third "money girl" will grace our pages. Michelle Buswell has walked for LouisVuitton, Chanel, Gucci, YSL, Valentino, Fendi and Stella McCartney to name but a few. She's shot with almost every major magazine and a who's who of photographers. Her numerous campaigns include Chanel, Dior, Prada, Oscar de la Renta, Versace and many more. She's been a Victoria's Secret angel, appeared in the 2005 Pirelli calendar and is the famous face of the Classique fragrance campaign by Jean Paul Gaultier.

For issue #15 of Black, New York-based photographer Arthur Belebeau returns, in partnership with Flair Magazine fashion editor Vittoria Cerciello, hair maestro Leon Gorman and Black's Valery Gherman to deliver a sumptuous editorial featuring Michelle gambling with the perception that her cutting-edge days are behind her. Vittoria has delivered phenomenal work at Flair for some time now only occasionally deviating to work with the likes of Ponytail, Leon's name will be familiar to many in the hair trade and New York editor Valery Gherman has stepped up to the next level with his make-up artistry.
