If you read Freja's blog yesterday you probably caught this little bit of info:
After a couple of beautiful relaxing days by the saltwater pool in Monaco, I have now moved on to London for a few days off and also a few days of work.
Wonder what she could be working on over there? I was thinking about this (probably way too much) and I really hope she shot an editorial for Vogue UK because her past work with the magazine is simply outstanding and it aptly showcases her versatility and skill as a model. Take a look at what I mean:

Going back to Freja's early days in 2005 with a colorfully vibrant, Moroccan-themed shot, she's strong enough not to be overshadowed by the clothes and setting.

Then in 2006 she exudes a very appealing and soft femininity.

As we move into 2008, in a complete 180 degree turnaround, Freja delivers her famous androgynous charm with two editorials in the same issue.

And the most recent editorial Freja shot for them in August of 2008 displays a mixture of both androgyny and femininity, coupled with fantastic interplay between her and Lily.

If Freja is indeed working with Vogue UK again I can't wait to see what the final product will look like. I love the range that they have allowed to her thus far, unlike for example Vogue Nippon and their androgynous, black and white eds.

I should reiterate that I do not know if Freja is indeed shooting an editorial for Vogue UK. This is just my hope and the result of my deductive reasoning. Why else would she be working in London? Most of this season's ad campaigns have already been shot so it's safe to assume that she's not shooting an ad. I'm not sure about foreign brands, but I figured those would most likely shoot in their own respective countries or in NY.

I could be wrong, but NY is a more well-known city on the international fashion scene. You have lots of photographers and creative, industry types based in the city. So if a brand like Moiselle was going to shot anywhere beside Hong Kong, I would place my bets on NY over London. Same goes for the foreign versions of Vogue and Numero. So unless Freja is shooting in London on a specific location instead of in a studio, it makes sense to conclude that she's shooting for Vogue UK. I guess I'll just have to wait a few more months to find out if I'm right. :)

Did you also catch this other little tid-bit from her blog post?
packed for 4 days in Monaco and now have to do a bigger roundtrip to Paris and then New York
Trips to Paris and NY for more work? I think the timing of this is good as we are in between seasons so a busy schedule during the off months hopefully means a busy schedule come runway time. Also, aren't couture shows coming up!?
