Next face Chris Hermann stars "Being Extraordinary", an editorial featured in The Ground Magazine's latest issue. The fringe-haired beauty is captured by photographer Ryan Yoon's lens while channeling a girl from the 60s.

Embracing surrealist imagery, this editorial pays homage to the work of legendary artist Salvador Dali. Whether looking to the artist's painted works or conceptual films for inspiration, photographer Ryan Yoon creates visual compositions that are reflective of the icon's aesthetic.

Styling for The Ground Magazine's artful exclusive is courtesy of its photographer who works alongside makeup artist Manami Ishikawa to transform Chris into a MOD goddess from another era. The model pulls off Twiggy-inspired lashes along with exaggerated brows and illustrated body art that fits in with the story's surreal theme.
