Ghanaian-British model, Adwoa Aboah has landed herself on the covers of Vogue as its April star for the second consecutive time.
The rising model and feminist was an epitome of strength, grace and glamour as she posed for the double covers a blue Versace trench court and a Mexican wide-brimmed hat.
She was shot by fashion photographer Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Patrick Mackie for the new issue which is also Latin America’s biggest publication. On the second cover, she wore a Proenza Schouler cross-over crop top with a pleated skirt. Her face was painted by beauty artist Benjamin Puckey, and hair styling by Ward Stegerhoek.
24-year old Adwoa is the daughter of Ghanaian scout, Charles Aboah and Camilla Lowther, owner of the CLM agency that represents photographers, stylists, makeup artists, hairstylists and manicurists across the fashion industry.

The Gurls Talk founder has also been vocal about her personal struggles with suicide, depression, self-esteem and drug abuse after she checked out of rehab. She told Vogue "losing out on jobs and being judged on your appearance. I definitely grew a second skin and got used to it but more so now I realise that it definitely contributed to a lot of the things I feel about myself.
Adwoa Aboah is also big sister to model Kessewa Aboah who admits that their Ghanaian heritage has had a huge influence on their modelling career.
“My Ghanaian heritage means a lot to me and plays a big part in my life because it’s part of who I am” adds Kessewa.
