The Softer Side

July 6th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (28)

Freja Beha Erichsen, proves she can do more than cool nonchalance with a fresh faced turn on the cover of Vogue UK. Sporting the very popular golden Miu Miu mini (bonus points if you can tell us which other fashion cover this dress was just seen on) and a great big smile, Freja looks sweet and completely deserving of the “fashion’s coolest covergirl” title. Fear not fans of the Freja’s edgier side; the Danish beauty is featured in a suitably offbeat editorial by Josh Olins inside the issue.

    Don’t get me wrong– I’m all about a model being on the cover of a major fashion magazine. While I can appreciate what Freja brings to fashion, editorial and runway, (and has for many years, talk about longevity!) I don’t see her as the right girl for a UK Vogue cover. This particular cover, especially, has a disconnect between her expression, hair, makeup, styling and photography– she just isn’t the girl to book for this kind of fresh-cum-sexy summer look.

    If this photo was in any other venue it would been seen as sub-standard, but because it is on the cover of Vogue it is seemed as good.. go figure.

    I am in love with this side of her.
    It’s great to see that she finally gets the chance to show her diversatility!

  4. Josh says:

    Wow. What a face! I’m not a big Freja fan usually, but this cover – her expression, her intelligent look – is just fantastic.

  5. Josh says:

    She looks like she is about 35 on the cover, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Their is warmth and meaning behind her eyes in this shot. Its like she has a story to tell. (Didn’t mean to get all Dr. Phil on ya) :)

  6. Chungkit says:

    I agree with J’adore. Am a huge fan of Freja and Josh Ollin’s work, but something doesn’t add up on the cover… that said, I do like the inside editorial much more, and yes, it’s great to see a model on the cover…

    I don’t like it, she doesn’t have a cover nor summery girl looks.

  8. jason kanner says:

    Just love it

  9. carola says:

    For those who don’t like it, I guess that’s exactly the point, making this very cool, edgy, tomboyish girl look soft and “classically pretty”. Those who aren’t familiar with Freja’s work would never guess she’s known for her edgy photographs.

  10. modelobssesed says:

    i love the cover, and i’m loving the styling can’t wait to see more of this editorial.

  11. Sheila says:

    I think what bothers me the most here is the cover. Her mouth looks so tense to me…

  12. Alegra says:

    British Vogue always do this, one month, an actor/singer/presenter and the next a model.

    this year (including the december issue) it has literally gone:

    Dec: Lara Stone model
    Jan: Rachel Weisz actress
    Feb: Natalia Vodianova model
    March: Alexa Chung presenter
    April: Kate Moss model
    May: Gwyenth Paldrow actress
    June: Angela Lindvall model
    July: Cameron Diaz actress

    and now for august freja!

    British Elle has only used actresses for the past year !!!

    I love how Freja is showing her elegant and delicate side in the editorial, but the cover is just not flattering at all, there is just something weird about how her face are presented on the cover, it’s like she aged up more than 10 years, and it somehow makes me not want to look at the cover.
    I much prefer the editorial than the cover..

    the dress was also on the cover of W …Eva Mendes :))

  15. edward says:

    she reminds me of hilary swank, always did but she’s more mature here. Love the look in her eyes.

  16. Karine says:

    I love the cover! :D

  17. ff says:

    One word……… FRESH she looks so beautiful,it’s amazing, I loved it

  18. Yu Hang says:

    I found it Freja has so many fans

  19. Hollywood Sentinel says:

    top shot is great, hot legs and killer shoes, great clothes, hair, and look

  20. GP says:

    I like Freja of her young fresh face but she look old on this cover. She looks like Diane Lane has been photoshoped. Don’t you think so?

  21. Dalia says:

    she’s sooo good looking
    i love FREJA <3

  22. lulu says:

    Fans forgive me but I’ve never understood the allure of Freja. She’s so very plain to me…

  23. Andrew Diego says:

    very pretty girl… though I’d hardly call it a “great big smile” there on the cover.

  24. MissB says:

    The first photo is great- the cover? Not so much.

  25. nik says:

    I think people are just weird out because we never seen Freja do anything like this. UK Vogue wanted to give us something different and they did a great job!

  26. Diegoo says:

    Great Magazine cover!!

  27. b says:

    really GOOD she looks amazing.

  28. Jessie says:

    not a typical modelish cover. she looks mature, but I think it’s a nice change.
