The ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ star was photographed by Mikael Jansson and styled by Vogue senior contributing fashion editor, Kate Phelan. She is wearing Valentino on the cover. Her makeup features a brown smokey eye (so on trend!) and a rusty red lip. It was done by Hannah Murray.
The editorial is equally as beautiful. Mbatha-Raw wears a metallic silver Dior pyjama suit paired with Ferragamo sandals. In the article the actress talks about her career trajectory, conversations with Oprah, and more.
