First Face Countdown

For those who haven't seen it yet:



Priceless, witty, comedy gold. I love that Karmen is standing there laughing her ass off during the entire interview. And maybe it's just me, but I feel like her dry humor is rubbing off on Freja here. Compare the above interview to this one from just last season and the difference is palpable, at least to me:



Gotta love FTV for these interviews. And huge thanks to tFS member Medicine Man for capturing and sharing the video in the first place, and for user T Dot at vimeo for uploading it with sound.

Freja has always been pretty sarcastic, I think Karmen was there to egg it on this time.

Oh and liking snakes is weird sorry to say Freja. lol

I thought Freja had a chance of being one of the casts for the Balenciaga campaign. But I heard Balenciaga and the Pirelli calendar were both shot at the same time (last week). The lcoation was totaly different, one was in NY and the other one was in Europe. She probably had to choose one....

^Probably not....Balenciaga is mostly newer girls this season from what I heard. So I don't think she was ever an option.

Just because Meisel is shooting with her now doesn't mean she's guaranteed a campaign by him this season. I just want to keep expectations tempered. :)

Maybe it's just me, but Freja seems comparably more at ease? And lively? And (as always) lovely? Haha. It's so funny to hear her make those animal sound effects, hahaha!

On a totally different note, I really like the songs...would you happen to know that last song--the one during Chanel?

She's too funny. Her and Karmen are adorable.
The songs for this are awesome, too. Does anyone know what the song that starts playing at 7:28 is?

About the Balenciaga campaign, Karen Elson was just casted and she's pretty established so IDK...I don't want to get my hopes up but still, there might be a teeeny chance.
And oh random, I was looking through my Elle Collections and there's a little article about Freja :)

The article says
"Our girl crush of the season was the amazing Freja Beha Erichsen. The striking, feisty 22-year-old Danish model - whose ad campaigns include Gucci, Chanel, Chloe, Balenciaga and Balmain - walked the runways at Hermes, Valentino, Celine, and Stella McCartney, among others. Plus she brought raw unadulterated sex to the show finale at Chanel with her part in that menage a trois. So why does Freja make our hearts beat faster? It's that cool, androgynous look and that proper attitude"

Like I said, it's tiny, but pretty cool.

@ Valeria: Thanks for sharing that! It's always nice to see Freja getting recognition somewhere, no matter how small. :)
