Between helping out at production company PrettyBird and attending UCLA Zoom classes, Isabella Massenet has just been signed globally as a new face at IMG Models. For our Summer 2020 issue, she shoots her first cover to celebrate, photographed at home by her stepfather Erik Torstensson, for which she styled herself in Celine and did her own hair and makeup.
Catching up with her friend Henry Petrillo, Isabella speaks on her dynamic family and her experience of lockdown with them, giving us all her film and TV recommendations from Fleabag to Reese Witherspoon’s Big Little Lies and The Morning Show. As both a photographer and a model she ruminates on stepping in front of the camera, sharing the advice that helped her overcome her mental blocks when modelling from Gisele’s book Lessons: My Path To a Meaningful Life. Looking to the future, Isabella also talks about her dedication to climate change and her dreams of writing and directing films — but first, to finally get her driver’s license.
