UK ELLE Names Damaris Goddrie Model of the Year

April is shaping up to be a decent month for diversity, first with Allure embracing three models of color on its diversity issue and now ELLE UK names Damaris Goddrie “model of the year.” After a string of less than impressive covers this year, UK ELLE regains our attention with the beautiful Dutch native. Photographed by Gilles Bensimon on the idyllic island of Saint Lucia, Damaris looks like a natural wearing yellow Chanel amongst the lush surroundings.
