Freja Beha Erichsen by Alasdair McLellan for Vogue Nippon July 2011

Freja is having a bit of a moment in fashion right now.  And very much deserved I must say.  I love that she’s getting so much work lately.  She brings a unique look to this industry and always produces excellent work.  She even managed to win over the Kaiser himself (who famously dislikes tattoos) who has called her a muse of the present.  I think sometimes we forget just how pretty Freja is.  I am so used to her androgynous look and tom-boyish edge that I forget how very gorgeous she is.  The angles to her face are shown very nicely in this beauty shoot for Vogue Nippon.  And I love the use of shadow and light to enhance the hollows of her cheekbones.  Moreover, I love how she has shaped the industry’s view of tattoos.  She continually gets work for high profile campaigns and books numerous runways all while having very visible tattoos.  Her body is a canvas just as much as models are a canvas for designers.  I love that they have just embraced the ink right along with it.  She may not be doing much in this particular shoot, but Alasdair does a great job of showcasing her beauty.
