Appearing in the magazine's May 2012 issue, the Plaza Kivinna Western Dolly cover shoot was shot by photographer Christopher Schmidt. Stylist Christian Classen clads Valimaki in sexy and sparkling looks from the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Derek Lam, Gucci, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino.

Instead of strictly adhering to the Western theme, the Plaza Kivinna 'Western Dolly' cover shoot plays with it in such a way that it almost appears as though model Julia Valimaki has somehow been transported through time from a modern era to an old world one. The dirt roads and dilapidated buildings of a Latin town may provide the perfect cowboy setting, but the clothes the Finnish beauty dons is contemporary and couture, not something a person would typically find in such a place.
