Burberry Prorsum - 3 Looks
Jaeger London - 2 Looks
Jonathan Saunders (C) - 2 Looks

Pringle of Scotland (C) - 3 Looks

Whoa, is it just me, or did London seem to fly by in the blink of an eye? I know it's not completely over yet, with today being the last day of shows. Buy with all the big names having already showed, you can bet most of the fashion flock have packed up for Milan. Anyway, Freja continued her great season by walking for only the second time ever in London. If she keeps up her pace for all four cities, she could fool me into thinking that she's the new "it" girl and not a veteran of 11 runway seasons dating back five years to 2005.

Her first appearance came on Sunday at Julien MacDonald, followed by a runway debut for label Acquascutum.

Monday came Jaeger London and Pringle of Scotland. The later show in which Freja had three looks and closed.

On Tuesday, Freja walked for Jonathan Saunders (who doesn't seem to be going anywhere after moving his show from NY to London last season). She closed that show as well, and if she continues with this opening and closing rate in Milan and Paris she'll be top three for sure.

Later during the day Freja walked in Burberry Prorsum as expected. It was a great show for those that got to watch it streaming live. The over sized shearling coats and biker boots and booties definitely had me lusting. And it was also great to see Karmen Pedaru, as a London exclusive, open the show. She's such a great model who has been flying under the radar up until now. And as we all know, she's a good friend of Freja's.

Milan starts today, but the shows that everyone are looking forward to start tomorrow with Fendi and Prada. If things go according to expectations, we'll see Freja at both. And aren't you just dying to see who the Prada exclusives will be this year? Miuccia always has something interesting up her sleeve.

fingers crossed that freja will be at the prada show cuz i heard the casting is all about sexy body and anti-size zero. the VS girls will be walking for the show too...

I heard the same thing and I am not excited. I'm not really a big fan of VS at all *sigh* Hopefully they have some of the Prada girls like Freja, Natasha, Nimue and others *crossing fingers*

has anyone else noticed that she has gotten alarmingly skinny lately? or is it just me?

Anne, I agree with you. There is a noticeable change in her face from ss10.

I actually think she's looking better than she was looking in SS10, but yes, still very thin.

Her face looked fuller. I am unsure whether it is the make-up or lighting but her face does look extremely thinner. Especially around her jaw line and cheekbones. The poor girl looked tired from the first day in New York.
