Aminata Niaria Pose with Boyfriend in US Vogue February 2011
With Valentine’s Day slowly approaching, the February 2011 edition of Vogue decided to do a feature photoshoot with models and their significant others. Among them were Sengealese model Aminata Niara and her boyfriend Laurence Dennis. The photogenic pair both wore trench coats for the photo shoot as it was the theme directed by fashion editor Tabitha Simmons and photographer Patrick Demarchelier.What a cute way of showing that models do work hard and play even harder!
The couple met five years ago at a Halloween party that Dennis – who works at the British Embassy in Paris – was hosting. “He was wrapped from head to toe in toilet paper as a mummy,” Niara, who went as Catwoman, recalls. “I think it’s the best look I’ve seen him in date!” Joking aside, the Senegalese model admits. “I love having his opinion, so we always do shopping together. But the trips must be quick, as his attention span maxes out after two hours.” US VOGUE FEBRUARY 2011
As for the fashion details, Aminata, a Victoria’s Secret model, wore a blue and white polka dot Max Mara Spring 2011 trench coat as you can see in the photo collage below. I like how Aminata repeated the runway look by rocking the trench coat as a dress.
