More Fans

We have another Freja fan to add to the list. Irish photographer Boo George, who recently shot Freja for Twin Magazine, joins the likes of Stella, Alex and the boys of Rag & Bone in proclaiming his fondness for our favorite androgynous ingenue.
Q: Who are your favourite models?
A: Freja Beha Erichesen, Hannah Holman, Eliza Cummings.
I really don't know why I'm keeping track of stuff like this. In the grand scheme of things it seems kind of trivial and petty, no? But I guess I just find it interesting to see who's a fan of whom within the industry. I also feel like my own fandom is validated when I hear about these actual fashion insiders who are fans--makes me feel like less of a weirdo for having this blog and writing endlessly about someone I don't know. (Although, writing it out like that just now brought the weirdness back.)

Anyway, it's always nice to hear about new fans because it really reinforces all the good things we've heard about Freja over the years; how she's nice, professional, easy to work with and just an all around cool girl. If she were a huge bitch I don't think she'd be around as long as she has been, with the fan base she does have both within and outside of the industry. In all my years of following her career I have not once heard anything bad about her. We're talking countless encounter stories from fans, first hand accounts backstage, casual run-ins, published experiences, etc... And lest you think I'm uber biased, it's not like I have blinders on or anything; I always make it a point to take in the bad with the good. What I'm trying to say is that this is just another reason why Freja has me hooked. Nice people can finish first.

I don't think this blog is weird. If I could write as eloquently as you I'd probably start a blog on someone I admired as well.
