Coincidence?

Soooo, after finally getting some time to catch up on all the fashion news I missed after a busy week, I came across a few interesting news bits that got the gears in my mind turning. Maybe I'm making something out of nothing, but the following bits of info are interesting nonetheless:

First comes news from tFS that Mert & Marcus were in London this past week shooting the Versace ad campaign.

Second comes a great tip from thoughtful reader Lita Larkin on this old post about seeing Freja in London last week on April 6th.

Now, if you can remember back to this past runway season, Freja walked the Hakaan show for the first time ever, and she showed up at Givenchy again after a long absence. I thought it was interesting back then, but in light of recent events, it seems even more interesting and telling now. Which two photographers have close ties to both brand? Yes, that's right....the same two photographers who just shot the Versace campaign in London....the very same city where Freja was just spotted.

Could it just be a coincidence? Yes. Lots of things are shot in London, and Freja could have just been stopping over on her way to Monaco. On the other hand, Could it mean that she shot the campaign? Possibly. She's always been a Donatella fav and now that she seems to have entered into the good graces of Mert & Marcus and revamped her image into a feminine sexpot, Freja doesn't seem like a far-fetched choice for the campaign. I guess we'll find out for sure when campaign news is officially released. ;)

Sean O'Pry was in London same time period - met him outside a club - I know it is a bit of a stretch, but may be a campaign with him and Freja coming up... ?

Hi, what a cute blog. I have a blog with Freja too, but it is polish blog. Do you want to look at it?

Oh...Freja might be doing other things else...not Versace...

Versace, like Donna Karan, is also switching up photographers ... ...Originally, the Versace campaign, like Vuitton, was reportedly supposed to feature six models, including Candice Swanepoel and Groeneveld, but the photographers are rumored to have settled instead on one girl with "short dark hair" who is a "cover star." Some are thinking that might indicate Saskia de Brauw as Versace's new girl.

And since the fashionspotters are hissing way why should TI continue to hold his tongue. Fashionologie is on the case re: Versace and Vuitton . Regarding the latter, of the cast of six at LV only two in fact are Top 50... And at Gucci of the four girls on call two are repeat offenders and another two are first time at the Gucci disco ball. Including that one stunning Top 10 Newcomer who all the key clients had to have. Meanwhile over at Dolce we spot two make-up contract queens and one iconic face. It may not be a blockbuster for the first season girls but a lot of recent stars are been giving a chance for continued relevancy. And that is good news!

maybe freja was in Gucci!!!!!
