You've got to hand it to Stella Maxwell - she knows how to command attention.

The Irish supermodel (26), whose parents hail from Belfast, was recently hailed the Model of the Year at the LA Fashion Awards and she has landed yet another coup - her fourth international Vogue cover.

Maxwell, who is dating American actress Kristen Stewart, appears on the latest edition of Vogue Brasil entirely nude, save for her strategically placed hands.

She previously appeared alongside fellow models-of-the-moment Taylor Hill, Martha Hunt and Jasmine Tookes for Vogue Spain last year, a solo cover for Vogue Germany and in January, she starred on the latest issue of Vogue Japan.

Her rise in the fashion world has been a meteoric one, while some of her peers might have better mainstream name recognition, she has been busy with numerous runway shows and campaigns and became a Victoria's Secret Angel  alongside a crop of fresh faces in 2015.

While we might claim as her our own, she was raised in Australia, Belgium and New Zealand, but Ireland holds a special place in her heart.

"My parents are both from Belfast. I have an Irish passport and a British passport, and I go back every summer and every Christmas, and sometimes I pop over during the year to say hi, and, of course, celebrate St Patrick's Day," she told Life magazine.

"All my family look Irish. They act Irish. My sister even has red hair... it's crazy. I'm the one that doesn't seem Irish. None of the kids in my family, my siblings, speak with an Irish accent… we've never lived there full-time, we weren't born there, we just go there once or twice a year. It's weird. Our parents sound Irish, but we don't."

And while she might be in a relationship with one of the most famous women in Hollywood, you'd be hard pressed to find her or Stewart courting publicity - only a seemingly endless array of paparazzi shots of them.
