Paris Fashion Week SS 2011....Katia

Katia, who with her lovely brother Midou, seem to be the most connected teenagers at Paris Fashion Week!
p.s. Last Friday I got to shoot a Christmas editorial feature for Despite the weather being completely awful (I said lots of pretty please's in the days leading up to it but it didn't seem to work) , I had the most amazing time with the fab team from my-wardrobe, models Danny (Select) and Jessica (FM Agency), make-up artist Andriani (Phamous) and hair stylist Takashi (Phamous). I can't tell you how exciting it is to be asked to work on these kinds of projects (okay, it is REALLY exciting!). You can take a peek at the finished feature here. Thank you so very much my-wardrobe!

London Fashion Week SS 2011....Peony

Peony, 1/3 of PRP blog (which stands for photographing real people and also Pete, Rowie and Peony, the creators behind the blog) which popped up during London Fashion Week (and who doesn't love a good pop-up?!). The blog is still up so be sure to check it out and find out what PRP got up to during the week.
I have been dithering over posting photos of Peony and Rowie (I have their outfits from each day at LFW!). I think once someone I have photographed becomes a friend, I find it more difficult to choose photos....I never want to disappoint or have them hate their photos! So I just procrastinate and procrastinate...
p.s. I was over at Peony's house last week for afternoon tea (homemade Ottolenghi carrot cake, and cupcakes-helllllllllllloooooooooo!) and was lamenting the current state of my hair (which ever so slightly currently resembles a blonde birds nest). Peony swears by Philip Kingsley products (which I already use) but insists that the way to get gorgeous hair (and hello, look at hers!) that I MUST start brushing my hair twice a day. Um, I have to confess that I haven't brushed my hair twice a day since high school. I am a once a day girl. Anyone else just brush once or am I just horrifically lazy?!

Paris Fashion Week SS 2011....Anne-Catherine

Funny, gorgeous, generous and oh-so-photogenic (and not afraid of looking a little bit silly posing for me with her eyes closed outside Chanel!) friend Anne-Catherine*.

p.s. love Anne-Catherine's tick-tock Hermes around her neck (only a fashion student would think of that!) and her giant vintage doctor's bag (which belonged to her boyfriend's grandfather who was a doctor). I took the cutest photo of Hanneli (who was carrying the world's tiniest bag!) and Anne-Catherine together with their respective handbags but I sort of stuffed up the focus so I can't post it :(((

*Nope, she doesn't have a blog....yet! Will let y'all know if she makes one :)

Paris Fashion Week SS 2011...Alix

Y'all know Alix: adore that See by Chloe tweedly skirt....and the fur trimmed parka. Check out Alix's latest Halloween inspired shoot with Louise: amazing!!

Paris Fashion Week SS 2011....Rianne

Rianne ten Haken after Emanuel Ungaro. Her cute little motorcycle helmet reminds me of the flying helmet in the current Rolex oyster adverts.

Paris Fashion Week SS 2011....Marie

I am absolutely positive that I wrote down her name and the magazine she works for but I can't find it anywhere :( But I am sure it was for a magazine in Norway....let me know if I am not correct! Or you know who she is :)

Edit: thanks so much everyone! So, this is Marie from A Fashion Tale in Denmark.

Elena Perminova who always looks utterly breathtaking.

New York Fashion Week SS 2011....Hannah

London and Paris Fashion Week 2011....Lindsey

Lindsey Wixson in Paris (above) and London (below). I absolutely LOVE the Hans Feurer shoot with Lindsey in the 30th Anniversary Special of i-D magazine: her hair (masses of gorgeous blonde afro-esque curls) and the lighting were both sublime.

And I like that she likes mint flavoured lip gloss, donuts, chocolate malts and shopping in thrift stores.... reassuringly teenage.
