Emily Taylor, Editor, InStyle

In May, we celebrated the ninth annual InStyle and Audi Women of Style Awards with a gala dinner. The team set up a pop-up photo studio backstage to capture candid portraits of attendees.

There were countless lovely moments, from an embrace between celebrated film directors Gillian Armstrong and Rachel Perkins to a fun family portrait of Layne Beachley and husband Kirk Pengilly. But when model Jesinta Franklin stepped in front of photographer Harold David’s camera, magic happened: one striking, powerful image that really spoke to me.

With a little last-minute negotiation and a very quick turnaround, Franklin became our July cover girl – no location, no editorial hair and makeup, no hours of prep and days of styling, just one amazing shot.
