Fluvia Lacerda once again makes a big splash as she covers the Autumn 2011 issue of Beautiful magazine. The cover image was photographed by Andre Schneider, styled by Gabi Gregg and designed by Kevin Gilmour.

Beautiful is a relatively new glossy print publication from the UK.  According to Beautiful Magazine Editor in Chief  Sue Thomason, “At Beautiful we are a magazine for real women, to us this means Beautiful is for ALL women, thin, fat, tall, petite, athletic, curvy.”  Beautiful also has a policy of only using models size 12 and up, no diet/weight loss ads, and several others designed to make the reader have a more pleasant experience than some other magazines.
