Who Wore It Better?

Well, scans are already out of the new editorial. That was super fast, especially compared to last time and the days it took to see scans of the Vogue Nippon editorial. Credit goes to tFS member chanelnumber5 for scanning so quickly. It's a studio editorial showcasing the complete looks of designers from Milan. So this means that Freja shot another editorial with Sasha that we'll see somewhere else!

The editorial is quite beautiful in it's simplicity. No jumping to be seen anywhere, and there is some variation in the perspective instead of only full-body shots. There are no shots of Freja and Sasha together, and the rest of the issue's editorials concentrate on the other cities that comprise the fashion catwalk season. Patrick shot all the city editorials, as well as the cover with Sasha. (Side note: does anyone else think it's time for Vogue UK to give Freja a cover already? She's always in their eds, but never on the cover.)

I think that two veteran models like Freja and Sasha really show how crucial it is to have strong models for a simple studio shoot. Otherwise, the images will be flat and lifeless. As trite as it sounds, you need good models to bring the clothes and images alive.

Since there are only six shots with Freja, and they're all basically full runway looks, I thought it would be fun to play "who wore it better?"

lol, if you're going to be biased, a Freja Beha blog is definitely the place to do it. :)
