|It started as a flicker in NY. Louise Pedersen, a
quiet girl from Denmark with a cupid bow pout and downcast eyes that
gives this kind of...disdainful edge to her classic Nordic beauty
is making her round of show castings. This is her first NY season.
She's on the mega-wattage board of Women
but no one's ever heard of, much less glimpsed this girl before. Louise
has never set foot on a major runway before, has very little in her
book (one test and a few Polaroids) yet here she is nestling in the
package amidst Isabeli and Frankie and Carmen. Every time she leaves
a casting however, something funny happens. Yet another client calls
up to testify to the totality of Louise's effortless cool. And to
confirm her. For Calvin. For Marc. For DKNY. One after the other.
It's a respectable start.
