Maya Jama is the It Girl of the moment. Photographed by the legendary Steven Meisel in New York, she reflects on her ascent from charmingly relatable girl about town, presenter and social media figure, to representing the institution that is Love Island. As she prepares to go global, she looks back on her years in the spotlight - the loves, the losses, the parties - tracing the qualities that enable her to embody Britain as it is. As editor-in-chief Edward Enniniful notes, 'her mixed heritage, her humour, her kindness and her ability to connect with women and men or indeed anyone who comes into her orbit is a joy to behold.' As August's issue relishes in the heat of the summer, it looks ahead to the fast-approaching Autumn season, giddy for the trends to come.
