The Elle Germany June 2012 Ilva Hetmann photoshoot accentuates the atypical allure of the German model. Hetmann's deep red tresses and light skin make for an interesting contrast with the barren desert backdrop. Her piercing gaze echoes the trials of a lonesome traveler, and a rather stylish one at that.

Hetmann's solo desert appearance was captured for Elle Magazine by photographer Sam Bisso. Bisso's playing up on the editorial's desolate undertones is readily apparent, evinced by way of his capture of long eerie shadows and Hetmann's haunting footprints. The wanderer emphasis is also made apparent via the production's apparel choices, opting for purses with long straps, airy sarongs and chic turbans. These are the very pieces that are often worn by desert tribes, albeit without chunky haute couture heels.
