Old school magic with our ‘Majestic’ cover star, Blésnya Minher

Blésnya Minher cover star

Blésnya Minher is not a face you forget. It’s in the way she looks at you. Always present – eyes locked firmly down the barrel of the camera. Her energy. Electric. Our 'Majestic' cover star is old-school magic. The Angolan-born and raised model knows it, believing that true glamour is simple; a timeless dress, high heels and a show-stopping red lip.

First drawing our attention starring alongside Christy Turlington Burns and Liya Kebede in an unforgettable Valentino campaign; Minher was immediately recognised as a hot commodity. Before long, we saw her walking down the runway of Calvin Klein's fall 2017 show, donning a wispy, feather see-through dress. A favourite of Chanel and Louis Vuitton, it's clear that Minher is no stranger to the runway; though her lesser-known self appears after hours.

I start my day by ... Having a very good breakfast. I can’t have a good day without a good breakfast. It’s impossible for me.

When my imagination runs free it ... Makes me feel like I have control over my whole life, especially my future; because most of what I imagine is what I aspire to attract.

As Minher tells us, some of her fondest childhood memories lie in nights spent running away from her home and going to dangerous rivers without her parent’s permission. As she would later learn, with such risk comes a reciprocal dose of consequence. Her penchant for pushing boundaries speaks to her deepest desires. The perfect potion of curiosity, rebellion and a ‘life is too short’ attitude, Minher ushers in a new age of supermodel. Unafraid, self-aware and destined for greatness. She’s an Aquarius, after all.

I am a music lover and I can listen to a little bit of everything. It really depends on my mood, so I can’t say for sure one song that fortifies me. But I have to say that one that I really love is Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins, just because I think it has a good message for the world.
