It's Going to be a Good Year

No time for excessive words, other than to say that we're being spoiled with a wonderful start to the new year:



The new model of the moment and the veteran model of the moment, together on the cover of Vogue Italia shot by Steven Meisel. Old school, vintage, and nostalgia are just some of the words that come to mind. So how perfect to combine those ideas with two models whose features stand out for their modern sensibilities.

Anyway, no time for over analysis today! Just enjoy the cover and the feeling that Freja isn't going to fade away anytime soon. And enjoy your New Year celebrations! It's the last time to let loose before real life and real responsibilities return on Monday.

Saw it on fashin, absolutely loved it (but to be fair it is tough to dislike anything involving Freja). Great start to the new year. Hope Miesel's fascination with Freja is a longterm phenomenon. Some of my favorite Freja covers have come from him. Do you suppose American Vogue is considering another "model" issue this year considering there is generally a two year gap between such issues and the last on was in May 2009 (correct me if I am wrong). Since Freja is in Miesel's good books and is having such an amazing run, hopefully that will translate into a a spot on the cover for such an issue. She absolutely deserves one at this point. Also, a very happy new year to everyone!

^I've been thinking about that too. But at the same time, I don't want to get my hopes up because even this past year, despite ALL her success, Anna W only featured her in one multi girl ed. I have a feeling someone at US Vogue doesn't like her very much. But maybe with Meisel behind her she'll have a better chance showing up on that cover.

New Year's Eve has been great so far, VI cover, Chanel ads, LV ads!
Freja is really spoiling us. lol

Another great year has past, and, once again, thank you for all of your hard work in bringing us this terrific blog.

Happy New Year!

Niandra said...

Agreed, Rrose, she deserves such a cover! And I do have to wonder about US Vogue...hmmmm... Oh well, happy to see more Freja as always, especially in something so good!

Anyway I'd like to thank you for the blog! It's been really the only fashion blog with substance I've read and I really appreciate your dedication and wonderful writing! Cheers to a new year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! and what a wonderful start from Italian Vogue. However, i dont really like Arizona Muse. She looks alright on this cover, but she doesn't look like a standout girl to me. yet?

Adriana said...

I think Arizona is alright, but of course Freja is my all time-favorite model. For example, in this picture I think that Freja just has more of a strong presence than Arizona: http://intothegloss.com/2010/10/tete-a-tete/

P.S. I don't like seeing Arizona and Freja being put within the context of "new star vs. veteran" because I feel like it gives a sense of Arizona replacing Freja (or maybe I'm just paranoid?)

Happy new year everyone!

OMG Gabrielle you're so right!! She looks GORGEOUS in the Chanel campaign, it's my favorite out of the two! I like seeing Freja styled more naturally :)

Much of the people from TFS said the chanel ad were boring,but i still love them ,freja in the ad is very gorgeous.What's more, in the lv ad,she is very sexy and beautiful,i can't move my eyes away for her.Great!For the VI ,although it seem that the leading role is miss muse,but freja still charming and honorable.I want th kown what's your point about that.

and sorry for my poor english

i don't think freja will have a chance showing up on the USA vogue,because Anna W doesn't love her,thanks to steven ,she has a chance to shot a ed for USA vogue,but the cover ,i think Anna will not permit it.
What's more,carrie left VP,nobody can divine who'will be the editor and who is the favour of the new editor.so maybe freja will have a big challenge in 2011.But i wish she still to be a fashion darling to all the photographers and the designers.if she will be the top 1 in MDC ,i will feel very happy.how about you?
