Mica Arganaraz is the best friend you've always wanted but were never cool enough to have. She's funny, intelligent, beautiful, and effortlessly cool. But who needs friends when you've got family? Especially when it includes Mica. Kicking off 2017 with a bang, see Mica shine on our first cover of the year, for none other than The Family Values Issue. Of course, this isn't the Argentinean beauty's first rodeo; back in 2014 she fronted The Beautiful Issue, looking every inch a kween. Here we meet the brains behind the beauty with our very own i-Q.
