A stately location; clothes from reputed heritage houses; a top model looking regal and with a commanding presence... The stars aligned for our October cover shoot with Valentina Sampaio, who cut an aristocratic figure in Loewe gowns shipped in from Madrid and a rack of Burberry dresses dashed in from the brand’s Horseferry HQ.
