Hello and welcome to the future, humans.
Gemma Ward has put that ethereal face of hers — hovering somewhere between angelic and alien — to good use on the space travel-inspired December cover of Vogue Australia. Set against backgrounds designed by Animal Logic, an Australian visual effects studio that's worked on movies like "The Great Gatsby" and "Happy Feet," Ward floats around in zero gravity and wears Dior Couture like some beautiful extraterrestrial queen.
This also happens to be the magazine's 55th anniversary issue, which would explain the futuristic vibe (you know: celebrate the past, keep looking forward). More important, it's the latest development in what increasingly feels like a true comeback campaign for the supermodel, who disappeared from the fashion world after cementing herself as the biggest face of the '00s. In September, she made fashion followers do a figurative (maybe literal) spit take when she walked the Prada show and has been picking up jobs since.
With a major magazine cover under her belt, we're hopeful that we'll be seeing much, much more of Ward soon.
