i-D’s new More Than A Model video series unlocks a side of supermodels that’s rarely captured on camera… their secret passions. For our first episode, Lily Loves Yoga, we filmed Lily McMenamy - the nineteen-year-old daughter of supermodel Kristen McMenamy, who’s currently enjoying her second i-D magazine cover as well as starring in Marc Jacobs’ autumn/winter campaign - showing off her astounding yoga asanas, from the upside-down Urdhva Dhanurasana to the sideways Utthita Parsvakonasana. Directed by ill-Studio and styled by Erika Kurihara, it will transport you into a world of inner peace and transcendental calm!
Future episodes of our weekly More Than A Model series will star Abbey Lee Kershaw showing off her acting skills in LA, Sigrid Agren playing what may well be the sexiest game of tennis ever seen, and a whole host of other secret stars! Come with i-D as we open a window into our favourite supermodels’ secret worlds…
Special for her website.

Reclined in the twilight of an anti-paradise, the stars of Prada's resort campaign fix us with a seductive stare. At first glance they could be mistaken for angelic beauties, immaculate in a sea of luminous floral prints and jeweled accessories. But there is a darker more powerful side to these women and this story, a twist in the tale that is quintessentially Prada.
The pale lighting that illuminates their faces like moonbeams extracts all natural colour and form from their features and re-paints it onto the clothes, bags and jewellery.
The practicality of a khaki sunbed and simplicity of grey slate flagging provide a stone-cold contrast to the tropical prints and bold colours of the collection. In this nocturnal utopia, the feminine power and strength of the models takes over, as if the force of the moon itself was propelling their steady, sensual pose.
