In 2013 we ran down our Top 12 African Models and Faces. Included on the list was South Sudanese model Grace Bol, who we couldn't help but note "always gets mistaken for Alek Wek." Bol, who grew up in Kansas City and relocated to New York five years ago, is now the second face to adorn the cover of Archetype, a new bi-annual print magazine dedicated to fashion, art, design and photography. For their Autumn/Winter 2014 issue, Archetype features a stunning Bol against a brightly lit backdrop in their "Power Ne-on" editorial. Styled by the publication's fashion director, Shan Temuri, Bol wears a quilted dress from Issey Miyake, a Marie Francesca Pepe necklace, and shoes by Jamie Wei Huang. See the photos, shot by Greg Swales, in the gallery above, and follow Grace Bol on instagram here.
