Editor-at-large to Pop Magazine, Shala Monroque has landed the January 2012 cover of Town & Country. Though she is not a household name, the St. Lucian has been featured in several notable publications including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Huffington Post. She has so many great pics and is such a trendsetter, I really don’t think the cover does her justice at all.
Many have credited her rise from obscurity (working in a fancy restaurant) to her romantic relationship with well-connected art dealer Larry Gagosian , who is 34 years her senior.

Shala was featured in the December 2011 issue of Vogue Japan. The photospread was shot in St. Lucia by Tommy Ton with styling by Aurora Sansone, hair by Tetsuya Yamakata and make up by Serge Hodonou. See the full spread below:
She calls herself a “Writer, Traveler, Fashion Enthusiast and Consultant”. Follwo Shalas’s musings and interesting links on her blog Shalasrabbithole.
