Globetrotting musical artist Angel-Ho is the January cover star of edgy new publication The Lake magazine, and once again breaks all the expectations we have of the Cape Town-based queer creative.
It's the first time that the genre-defying, gender-bending performer, who calls themself Angel-Ho, has appeared on the cover of a magazine.
Taking to Instagram, the artist said, "I can officially say I am my deepest cover gal fantasy!" and added, "Watch me strike high fash-AWN modall [sic]."
The editorial photographs, which feature clothing by designers like Thierry Mugler and Selfi, were taken by photographer Oliver Kruger, who specialises in this sort of creative portraiture.
Watch & enjoy all the innocent pleasures I present to you 💎 Watch me strike high fash-AWN modall @angel_h0 X @the_lake_magazine Wearing an amazing jacket from SELFI X RHARHA @____laloba's collaborative capsule collection.
