It's a well known fact that black and white shots can produce some of the most stunning and dramatic imagery you'll ever see, and the Ilva Heitmann by Markus Pritzi for Sleek Magazine editorial shoot is a great example of the powers of monochromatic tones.

The 19-year-old model from Hamburg, Germany, is a show-stopper in the editorial spread for Sleek Magazine's high/low issue. Shot by Markus Pritzi, who plays with different angles and approaches to shooting the red-headed beauty, Heitmann shows off her "it" feature: her freckles, with slicked back hair and minimal makeup.

Styled by Isabelle Thiry, the Ilva Heitmann by Markus Pritzi for Sleek Magazine photo shoot features outerwear from the likes of Burberry Prorsum, Louis Vuitton, Celine and Miu Miu. If only the cure to every dreary, rainy day was a dose of designer clothing.
