Channeling her modeling roots, the actress poses it up in a slew of high fashion pieces from Michael Kors, Hermès and Oscar de la Renta.

Inside the issue, Yara opens up about her off- duty style and the lack of inclusivity in the beauty industry.

On her off-duty style:

“By not showing skin, I’m making a statement.” she tells the mag. “My clothes need to have movement. For me, fashion is all about joy.” 

On the lack of inclusivity in the beauty industry:

“I love that more beauty brands are doing this,” she shares about Bobbi Brown Cosmetics expanding their already extensive shade range. “There have been times when I got out of the makeup chair and my skin looked gray. It’s why I think every single person of color usually brings their own makeup kit to set.”
