“I don’t like standard beauty - there is no beauty without strangeness.” (Karl Lagerfeld)

editor’s letter Dear readers, in a few days the Summer will start! Here in Sicily, Summer means sun, sea, warm ... and we at La +Plus Belle Magazine decided to celebrate the start of warm weather with this issue, which is also our first themed Special Edition. Thanks to the precious contribution of photographers and models, some of them are already our dear friends, others just met, and together we realized this really extraordinary issue. Editorials made for this number are in fact, in our opinion, more beautiful than the others. Among all, however, we want to point out first of all the cover story, realized by Virginia Di Mauro (now in her second consecutive cover) together with the Brazilian model Daniele Moraes, our gorgeous cover girl. You can read a short presentation of Daniele on page 56 and, from page 58, you can admire the beautiful pictures of the editorial exclusively shot for La +Plus Belle. Then, we are very honored to have once again on our pages Jen Republic, stunning American model, Playboy model and previously our cover girl (see The Crossing Issue # 3) In the shots of the photographer Romen Cole, she played superbly our theme giving us a beautiful editorial that you can find on page 10. Last but not least, another dear friend, the US photographer Brad Olson, always careful in the choice of beautiful models. He made for us some wonderful shots. The full editorial can be found on page 94. And while you are browsing this issue, we are already working on the next one, due out in early July. It will be a little different than usual, less fashion but more creative and artistic! Follow us on facebook and instagram to stay tuned. Enjoy reading! Gaetano Pavano

Cover Girl

Daniele Moraes The Brazilian model Daniele Moraes was born in Sao Paulo but lives in Italy for five years. She works as a professional model for major magazines (like Vogue, GQ, Playboy) gaining many covers and editorials. She also plays in many television commercials (Italians surely remember of her in the Durex advertising with Rocco Siffredi). Daniele posed for many great international photographers; among others, Settimio Benedusi, Aldo Fallai, and the unforgettable, Lucien Clergue and Giovanni Cozzi. Magnetic eyes and breathtaking curves... Sensuality mixed with a strong and determined personality... Here are the credentials of Daniele Moraes, the beautiful Brazilian that seduced the Italian rappers which are competing to have her in their videoclips. The muse of rap is the role she plays alongside the major rapper artists of the moment: Fedez, Gue Pequeno, Clementino and many others. A big passion for sport and fitness; she has worked hard to achieve the certification for the training of Tacfit, an extremely hard discipline, developed by Scott Sonnon and adopted by the NY Police and by Israelis special corps. Daniele appears in many covers of fitness magazines as a symbol of beauty and health. In Italy she gained the cover of Olympia’s magazine. “At present I’m following a new functional training with my personal trainer and osteopath Michele Simone; it’s necessary for my next work engagement as an actress in a reality”. “I’m very creative: I like to write projects, coordinate my team of photographers, stylists, hairdressers... I’m also very meticulous in studying the characters I play as an actress in music videos”. “I feel Brazilian deep in my heart but I think to have a German mind: I love to search and find new challenges in everything I do”. “I love the Nature and I’m a vegetarian since I was a child. For me is essential the contact with the Nature; I find energy and inspiration into it, and with the right inspiration I hope to complete the novel that I’m writing, speaking of my story, my Brazil and the destiny that brought me to Italy”. Daniele Moraes
