You may know FKA Twigs as Robert Pattinson's new girlfriend, but if her recent string of magazine covers isn't already an indication, Twigs is a star in and of herself. She's a talented musician, and you may have heard her song "Two Weeks" or — if we're going back even further — seen her as a backup dancer for people like Jessie J or Kylie Minogue. It may seem like Twigs is quietly and confidently securing a place for herself in Hollywood, but the truth is that she's been there for kind of a long time already. So, magazine covers? No big deal. This month, FKA Twigs is the makeup-less cover girl for Yen magazine and she looks stunning.
The lack of makeup on a magazine cover star probably shouldn't be big news—we're better than all that, right? But the fact of the matter is that FKA Twigs is a different kind of cover star. You don't see the cover of Yen and think that she is trying to prove something or make a statement or send a message, but the image definitely makes you look twice. As The Gloss pointed out, she has an expressive and striking quality about her — the characteristics of a truly remarkable model. Pretty impressive for what some consider a newcomer on the music scene.
A quick glance at her Instagram and it would seem that Twigs is probably going to be on many, many magazine covers after this one. Not sure what I mean? See for yourself.
