If you've been reading this blog, you've probably noticed that a huge theme for this season has been surprises. Freja getting photographed by Meisel for US Vogue. Freja walking in Anna Sui for the first time ever. Freja opening and closing Oscar de la Renta. Well, surprises aren't always so pleasant and we had our first taste of the other side of things today.
Freja didn't walk for Prada, the show at which she made her world wide runway debut back during the FW0506 season. She's missed the show twice before (SS08 and SS09) but she left Milan early both those times. This is the first time where she's been in the city but hasn't walked for the show, meaning she did not get cast for whatever reason. So, surprise indeed.
On a positive note, she was at Fendi earlier today. So at least we know she's doing Milan! I'm still disappointed to say the least. Freja and Prada just go so well together in my mind, but after seeing the styling of the show I can understand why she wasn't the best fit for it. Nevertheless, it still sucks. It sucks about as much as when Elise Crombez stopped walking for Prada. :(
