Watch Now: Go Behind-The-Scenes On Our June Issue Cover Shoot

BY Harper's Bazaar Arabia / Jun 7 2017 / 21:42 PM

An intoxicating hybrid of strength, artfulness and feminity, Bazaar's Emily Baxter meets Sofia Boutella, one of the Arab world's most enchanting exports.

Rich olive skin, a razor-edged fringe that exaggerates sharp cheekbones, deep brown eyes framed by thick brows, and a mellifluous French accent... Sofia is an editorial dream – a beautiful blank canvas on which to play out fashion’s greatest fantasies. Go behind the scenes on our cover shoot with the 35-year-old Algerian artiste, who is pictured here wearing Chanel haute couture.
