Freja by Meisel for US Vogue

Yes, you read that right. Pigs are flying, hell has frozen over, the fat lady has sung; employ whatever other cliche you can muster up to describe the situation because it's happening. Freja is in the March 2010 issue of American Vogue, shot by Steven Meisel. It's a studio shoot also featuring Lara, Liya, Karlie, Mirte and Rianne. (What a cast!) The biggest surprise of fashion week (for me) isn't happening at all on the runways, but in the pages of magazines.

I guess it was a matter of time before this happened though. We had inklings that more could come when Freja worked with Meisel twice in a row for Vogue Italia at the beginning of the year. And some of us knew an upcoming collaboration was imminent. Thanks to the excellent sleuthing by commentator Amber in the comments section of this old post, we saw this tweet nearly a week ago from a "model mole."



I didn't want to believe it at first because anyone can say anything on the internet. But they were spot on about the March collaboration. About the zero beef? Well, I don't know if I buy that part yet. But that's all water under the bridge now.

Maybe this editorial is the stepping stone to an only-girl editorial? A vogue Italia cover? A Meisel lensed ad campaign? The possibilities seem endless now, don't they?

I am very happy about Freisel!lol
I can't wait for this ed and above everything else I can't wait to see if we are right and if we will have a Vogue Italia cover...

Hey, I have been reading your blog for a while now and I feel I need to comment on your insightful comments and views on both Freja's work and the industry. I like how I may view an ed and try to analyze the different concepts and come on here and sometimes read a contrasting view that just trumps my own :)

Sorry for not commenting previously - I wouldn't go into a bookshop and read a story without paying for it. So this is a thanks of sorts, so thank you very much!

Since I've subscribed to your blog via RSS feed, even when I saw the title of the post "Freja by Meisel for US Vogue" my eyes doubled in size and were probably as wide as saucers. (That's my cliche for you).

Just pure "wow." What can this mean? At any rate, I am definitely going to buy this issue when it hits the stands...

@ in pain: Means he had nothing against her and didn't dislike her or anything like that.

@anonymous: Thank you so much! And thanks for commenting. I really do appreciate it! And your views are just as valid as mine. Mine may just seem more valid because they tend to be very wordy, but they're just my own opinion. :) Yours means as much as mine do!

@Miranda: Love your cliche. :) I don't know what this means, but hopefully its not the end of their collaboration.

This is ten kinds of exciting. I am so psyched for her. Although the bit about them having zero beef is a little hard to believe. At this moment, it may be non existent but something definitely happened early on causing her to completely ignore her for so long. Either way, this is going to be EPIC.

I had no idea it was American Vogue! That's huge!

And thanks for the mention! I love sharing tidbits when I can :)
