Meet Kat, Sam, Devin, Verity and Natasha, all college students, not professional models. In the magazine’s long tradition of college pictorials, this one represents many firsts. It’s the first time we’ve brought all the models together for the photo shoot, the first time the women spent days getting to know one another before stepping into the studio and the first time the pictorial was cast via social media, without middlemen of any kind. Out of a deluge of applications, we selected just five undergraduates, all as ambitious and intelligent as they are beautiful. All studying different fields, these women have many things in common: they’re intelligent, hard-working, sexy, and chasing their goals. They’re something else too: complete naturals in front of the camera.
