For its September fall fashion issue, Marie Claire enlisted fine artist Dan Estabrook to create portraits of IMG mod and actress Hari Nef. Famous for his take on daguerreotype photography, Estabrook portrays 24-year-old Nef in the vintage-style photography with a watercolor-like element and a touch of what resembles a Snapchat or Insta filter (that flower crown!). Inside, Nef dishes on the essentials. Get to know the mod and actress!
