Ataui Deng x French Elle Magazine In 'Grand Bleu'

South Sudanese model Ataui Deng for French Elle Magazine's May 2014 Issue, photographed by Alex Franco.

This May, France's Elle Magazine released their 'Grand Bleu' editorial, a likely reference to French director Luc Besson's 1988 film of the same name. Featuring South Sudanese model Ataui Deng, the editorial highlights top tier labels like Alexander McQueen, Dior , Fendi, Prada, Paco Rabanne, Navy, and H&M, amongst others brands. Stylist Jeanne Le Bault rounded up all kinds of dark blue garments for the shoot, while photographer Alex Franco accentuated Deng's beautiful skin tone exceptionally in the photographs. The result is simply astounding and Deng shines with her glowing presence. Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #atauideng.
