editorialesque » freja beha erichsen for vogue japan beauty

through the lens of alasdair mclellan, freja beha erichsen appears for the june issue of vogue japan, for the publication’s beauty supplement. styled by george cortina, the spread focuses on fashion pieces that  serve well in a beach setting. through make-up done by jeanine lobell, the spread focuses on more subdued elements of cosmetics as freja is seen with a soft pink lip & bronzed shadow. laurent philippon allowed the greater feel of ocean side chic as freja appropriately sports the wet look. overall, the spread is a good addition to freja’s portfolio. much like the post previous, freja is of the new school as well & represents high fashion’s obsession with the androgynous. represented by IMG & as a known favorite of karl lagerfeld, freja steadily remains on top in the fashion game. freja has also cast to appear for chanel’s FW12 campaign, which will debut soon.

british vogue’s royal wedding issue

what yo’ name iz? natalia vodianova, lara stone, freja beha erichsen

for their first ever cover series, vogue UK takes part in celebrating the royal wedding by enlisting mario testino to shoot three stunning covers of three of fashion’s supermodels- two of which are british themselves. represented by DNA models, natalia vodianova appears in the first cover while both lara stone & freja beha erichsen of IMG appear in the following. an aesthetic relativity is seen in all three covers, as the theme of romance is well translated with words floating about; “catherine middleton: the making of a modern princess”, “fashion to fall in love with”, “true romance”. from vision to styling, quintessential wedding elements are combined perfectly & with the royal wedding just weeks away; it’s safe to say that the world is watching britain right now. poetic, soft & ultra feminine- the covers & cast are both equally as lovely. this is so fucking lovely, isn’t it?

freja beha erichsen for vogue brazil

shot by henrique gendre, with chic styling by luis fiod, freja beha erichsen lands the march cover of vogue brazil. showcasing that much more versatility in photographic performance, erichsen is transformed into a more feminine image with a classic cat eye & soft pink lip. with a masthead to match, the cover is beautifully done & freja proves her skill of chameleon capabilities. represented by IMG, freja has appeared for a slew of spring campaigns including cameos for chanel, valentino, louis vuitton & H&M. in addition to killing it on the campaign tip, freja further slays in editorial, having appeared for american, italian, british & french vogue all this year, only three months into the new year. much like last year, it seems to be another year of freja.

arizona muse + freja beha erichsen for numéro

through the lens of karl lagerfeld, freja beha erichsen & arizona muse appear together again for the march cover of numéro. shot in black & white, a style favored by largerfeld, the two are a fashion publication favorite this year. seen previously for italian vogue, im wondering when arizona will grace her own cover, without the assistance or company of freja. muse is a very interesting case of rising models. debuting this past spring, muse exploded on the runway as an exclusive for prada & walked for 23 others shows during her debut. shortly after, muse debuted as the face of yves saint laurent’s spring campaign & booked italian vogue january of this year. in an upward shift, arizona appears on this cover & has come off another explosive show season. an american female & resident of brooklyn, where she resides with her son, arizona is represented by next models ny. as for freja, she continues to slay editorially, on the runway & in advertising campaigns as a favorite & regular in american & british vogue. as a known favorite of karl lagerfeld, freja holds the rank as fashion’s no. 2 female model & is represented by IMG. her look of androgyny & versatility has allowed her to break barriers & represent a new form of modern beauty.

spring couture collections: chanel

with a rich heritage that has seared through time, with highs & lows, the house of chanel was established in 1909. in 1981, karl lagerfeld left his post at chloé & took the helm of chanel as creative director. in resurrecting the label after the death of coco chanel herself, karl has continued to revive the brand with a modernized signature as well as a powerful sensibility to marketing, beauty & fragrance. one of the most iconic womenswear labels in history, we see the SS11 haute couture collection tap into the rich history of the label, as only lagerfeld could create. playfully entering the SS11 couture season, the palette of this collection matches that of it’s model cast, pale, soft & feminine. while the lack of color is mirrored from the clothes to the women that are wearing them, the collection thrives in details that are more greatly appreciated when felt & seen off-screen, in real life. the attention to silhouette is interesting for the set, as elongated design lines seem to lean more toward an aesthetic & image karl has been adopting for the past few seasons. while other designers are focusing on curve hugging gowns & drastically draped necklines, karl assumes his position in oppostion. overall, the collection is a fitting addition for the house of chanel but in my opinion is lacking a true sense of progression & forward thinking. that said, lagerfeld is a genius in what he does & has done with the house of chanel. with sales of couture on the upshift, im sure chanel clientele will be nothing more than pleased with what has been created. icons, stella tennant opened & kristen mcmenamy closed.

shot by david sims, entirely in black & white with a beautiful cast of females; the house of valentino hits the nail on the head with their summer/spring 2011 campaign. styled by visionary genius, karl templer; julia stegner & caroline brasche nielsen are seen alongside freja beha erichsen for this full force embodiment of the new era in valentino design. what i loved most about this collection was the feel of delicacy & femininity; now in looking at the complete campaign, that vision & feel are represented incredibly well. with natural light, wood grain furnishings & beauty shots with white backdrops- the campaign is refined & sophisticated while still capturing the essence of what the new valentino era embodies while respecting the labels history.
