Femininity's Triumphal Return

After months of complaining, the fashion gods have heard my cries. Freja is finally moving away from the androgyny that has defined her for so long, and into a femininity that was more characteristic of her early modeling days. I couldn't be happier right now. Yes, she is more than just the tough girl. Yes, she is more than just androgyny. Yes, she can look like a woman. Finally, people are starting to see what we've known all along. And here's the proof:





She walked on the runways of Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta and Anna Sui; three designers best known for their feminine frocks. A change has come and I'm so very excited to see how it all plays out for the European shows!

Oh, and two shows on the schedule for today. Isaac Mizrahi for sure, as Cameo tells me, and another one....probably Tommy. So Freja will be present for the last day of New York shows, but her London prospects are still uncertain. Even without a showcard, I have my fingers crossed for an appearance at Burberry.

Also, here are some more lovely candid shots courtesy of Cameo, who has been so wonderful and gracious this season. Thanks once again for being our eyes and ears at the tents! (As usual, please remember to credit her if you're going to repost these pictures anywhere. These candids are a perk and not a right so please don't abuse them. Thanks!)

Big thank you to Cameo, so lucky.

i'm not terribly knowledgeable about the fashion scene - but let me know your opinion on this: perhaps freja's return to these more feminine fashion houses has to do with her involvement with chanel HC? she's able to embody the modern chanel woman there, so maybe other designers were able to see her flexibility. what do you think?

Rrose Sélavy said...

@JC: It's a good thought, but she's been doing Chanel HC for a while now. I think it has more to do with her working with Meisel and perhaps her recent move to NY. Who knows...maybe she just wants to work more? Or maybe IMG is pushing her on clients harder? It could be any number of different reasons. Some we can guess at, others we probably have no idea about. :)
