Hari Nef has had a very good year: After graduating in theater from Columbia University last May, she became the first American trans woman to sign with IMG, made her acting debut in Transparent’s second season, and has walked for the likes of Gucci and H&M. Today, the 23-year-old model-writer-actress adds one more item to her post-grad résumé: She’s the new face of cult brand Mansur Gavriel.

Designers Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel cast Nef (their first high-profile model) in the brand’s latest ad campaign, Fashionista reports. Shot by sisters Tanya and Zhenya Posternak, the summery blue-skied photographs feature Nef with Mansur Gavriel’s new Sun bag (a top-handled caramel tote from New York Fashion Week) and another mini–bucket bag in eye-popping red.
