Random Bits: Royal Wedding Edition

-I know this isn't Freja related, but damn! How beautiful was that dress? And how absolutely, stunningly, breathtakingly gorgeous did TRH Catherine look!? I'm not one to buy into wedding hype at all, but I couldn't help but to get swept away in the emotion and significance of it all. Yes, I got up early to watch. Yes, I teared up a bit (much to my surprise). Yes, I'm ready for a nap.


-More details about Freja's second consecutive Harry Winston campaign have surfaced. According to WWD:
"In May, Harry Winston is set to launch a new diamond, platinum and yellow gold collection, Lily Cluster, inspired by a Forties floral motif pulled from the company’s own archives. The news here: It’s the first time the company has offered designs in flaxen hues — aside from the occasional special request — since the Nineties...........The Lily Cluster ad campaign, shot by Patrick Demarchelier, will feature Freja Beha Erichsen."
You can see these new jewelry designs in the campaign shot I posted here.


-Freja will be part of the grand, multi-girl editorial for VP's August photographed by Inez and Vinoodh. The week long shoot is taking place in Los Angeles right now, and Inez and Vinoodh have been tumblr-ing candid shots of models all week long. However, the candid of Freja comes from another source (by way of 50mmf12l.tumblr.com):


So far the model lineup for this shoot includes: Lara Stone, Anja Rubik, Arizona Muse, Isabeli Fontana, and Raquel Zimmermann. So basically, all the big guns. If you'll recall, Freja was also included in the editorial for last year's August issue shot by David Sims. She also happened to land that cover. So maybe she'll get a cover shot once again? (Though I think it's high time for a cover to go to Raquel.) In any case, it seems like Alt isn't straying out of her comfort zone in terms of model choice. That's a good thing if your favorites happen to be her favorites. It's not such a good thing if you were hoping to see new and fresh faces (cough Aymeline cough) in the pages of VP.


Now off I go to find super HQ detail shots of that dress.....!

oh that dress was gorgeous!And I guess it right, it is designed by Sarah...Lace has two role in this dress:1.trendy 2.the element of Will and Kate first meet(that black lace see-through dress!)
Anyway, I can't wait to see the HW ads and Valentino fragrance campaign. I am so delight to see Freja can handle the feeling of both gender amazingly.

More praise for Freja from MARKI SHKREL, stylist.

PR: Out of all the big model names such as Anja, Freja etc, that you simply can't miss specially at Balmain... who's attitude and presence do you like?

MARKI SHKRELI: I love Freja. To me she is the definition of a Balmain girl. Effortlessly sexy, strong and beautiful.

Oh my god, I didn't know that Inez & Vinoodh had a Tumblr. This is great news (both the fact that they're working with Freja on an editorial for Vogue Paris and have a Tumblr). I'm hoping for the best with this match between Freja and Inez/Vinoodh.
