Random Bits: Hello Holidays!

Instead of being stuck in the cold east coast snow, I managed to escape for the holidays just in time. Woot! But that doesn't mean I've completely checked out.....yet. So here a few news bits to get you through the rest of the week, until you make it home for the holidays. :)

-Freja just wrapped up shooting in São Paulo for the Brazilian shoe brand Santa Lolla. The shoot took place today and yesterday, and she was shot by Henrique Gendre. Any Brazilians out there with encounter stories to share? (Thanks to reader Gabriela for the tip!)

Behind the scenes at Santa Lolla

-It's the end of the year and you know what that means....lists. Freja's made it onto Vogue UK's Best Dressed List of 2010, accompanied by a quote from uber talented and revered stylist Lucinda Chambers:
"Freja is the ultimate in boy/girl cool. She’s so down-played but everything she wears is exquisite. Every girls wants to look like Freja.”
That's quite an endorsement coming from Lucinda. Freja is 1 out of the 6 models featured on the 20 person list. The others are Edie Campbell, Elisa Sednaoui, Kate Moss, Lara Stone, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. (Hmmm, does anyone else think that Vogue UK is determined to make Edie the next big British model export? They put her in December's Star Girls ed, and now they feature her here again, when I can think of lots of other girls more deserving.) Now we wait and see if Freja will show up on any other lists. With the year she had, I'm kind of expecting it to be honest. But we'll see.

-Remember this twitpic that was burning up the blogs and forums a while ago? I got a tip from lovely reader Kate, letting us know that it's for the campaign of a Scandinavian based, fast fashion chain store with a predilection for designer collaborations. But shhhhhhhh, you didn't read it here.

-Lastly, thanks for the shout outs and Unique Denmark! It's quite humbling, and also a bit embarrassing to know that this blog is being visited (and maybe even being read....ha!) by people who actually work in the industry. So thank you for that recognition. I guess it means that I must be doing something right. But all the credit of course goes to Freja for keeping all of us enthralled with her work, and to all you out there for your constant input, encouragement, tips and well wishes. I would have given up a long time ago if it wasn't for you amazing and passionate fellow fans. So thanks most of all, to you!

Pssshh Rrose, you're such a great writer! Why else would we all keep coming back? Congrats on getting major recognition -- you deserve it!

Karmen shined in the fall 2010 campaign, it's only apropos that Freja would, too! Very exciting & major visibility! And that floral dress can't be explained any other way :)

did you read this??????
“Yes, the rumours are true, I’m homosexual” Freja Beha recently confirmed in an online interview with Runway Magazine.
To the question why she has chosen to come out in this very moment, she replied: “It’s very important for celebrities to come out of the closet. Coming out is a political statement, I finally realized that.”

Hiii. My english is not so good, and you asked a long long time ago. One correction, she didn't stay at São Paulo city, she was here in Rio de Janeiro at Hotel Fasano. And the neighborhood that she was is know here like a gay neighborhood. HAHAHA She gaves a short[?] interview to a magazine. But you probably isn't isterested anymore. But that's it.

You had solid ideas there. Nice to see there are still some interesting blogs around that are worthy reading.
