Welcome to STYLE’s glossy play on Fashion Week starring model-on-the-rise Bentley. The spread is one part fuzzy glam rock á la Queen—luxe leather and sharp boots—one part classic romance. We track back to the Renaissance with a nod to the original queen of high-neck haughtiness herself, Catherine de Medici. Rock and rule in brocade, lace and leather.
