Steven Klein's Surrealist City Aliens

The last W Magazine editorial photographed by Steven Klein and styled Edward Enninful featured African models Maria Borges and Ajak Deng.

'Warrior Stance,' despite the predictable name you'd never imaging what's unleashed in this March editorial from W Magazine. Photographed by Steven Klein and styled by W Magazine's Ghanaian/British Fashion Director Edward Enninful, the editorial lives between the surreal and fantastic, in a drifting universe where the extraordinary fits perfectly alongside the cartoon inspiration for these city aliens. Angolan Maria Borges and South Sudanese Ajak Deng, two of the featured models, make us think of edgy superheroes saving the world.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.
