Miss Anne-Catherine Frey for my Girl Next Door feature on Grazia.it. Something for the weekend.....a girl who needs no introduction to regular blog readers, Anne-Catherine. You can find the interview with her on Grazia.it here and her own personal blog here. Apologies in advance for the number of photos*- I gave up trying to decide which ones to include so kind of just included a truck load of them ;)A few snippets about Miss Anne-Catherine:
*She is from Luxembourg but lives in Paris where she studies fashion design at ESMOD;
*Has the perfect face for short hair (although secretly and selfishly I want her to grow it so I can photograph her with looong hair;)
*We met at fashion week in Paris in March 2010 in the Tuileries;
*She loves pretty much anything from The Kooples (are you hearing this Messrs Kooples?! Her boyfriend is super good looking as well just in case you wanted to cast them in one of those couples adverts!);
*She has the most awesome cat called Molly (who is a boy!) whose best friend is a chihuahua called Speedy. You can find a photo of Molly disguised as a sushi roll somewhere on my blog;
*She looks good even in 38 degree heat (we shot this on the Monday after men's fashion week in June which I think was one of the hottest days so far this year) while I just look flushed, sweaty and generally a mess;
*She ♥'s PS1 bags, OPI nail polishes; Alexander Wang backpacks; Elly Jackson from La Roux; Coco Sumner; the new Balenciaga flats for winter.
What was Anne-Catherine wearing for our shoot? White t-shirt (T by Alexander Wang); grey blazer (The Kooples); green jeans (Topshop); Alexandre Herchcovitch for Melissa shoes; Hermès Collier de Chien bracelet and Swarovski white bracelet. The little coloured, woven cross bracelets are from Colette-each colour means something different.
Grey backless t-shirt (Maison Martin Margiela) ; floral skirt (American Apparel); winklepickers (Luella for Underground Limited Edition).
Joy Division t-shirt from Noir Kennedy with vintage floral shorts (we did pay for the apple in the fruit shop....although I think the guy working behind the counter thought we were a little odd!)
Dress (Cos) with Vivienne Westwood for Melissa heels.
