Shala Monroque is the editor-at-large of Pop Magazine, but the stunning photos in the Shala Monroque Vogue Japan December 2011 editorial demonstrate that the editor also has some great modeling skills.

The photo shoot, called 'Island in the Sun,' is shot by famed photographer Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil blog, and features some amazing colors and patterns that are bright and bold enough to lighten up any rainy day.

Styled by Aurora Sansone, the shoot is perfect if you need a bit of a pick-me-up when temperatures start to drop and the weather gets a little dreary. The Shala Monroque Vogue Japan December 2011 photo shoot demonstrates that just because it's gray outside does not mean your wardrobe has to follow suit.
