Freja Beha has that incredible ability to switch between being the most elegant woman (or “Valentina” if you wish) and the most “laid-back-you’re-horizontal” guy. I wouldn’t be surprised if you looked up the word androgynous and found a picture of Freja Beha Erichsen underneath, because she’s essentially a mix of both genders. Incredibly lanky and tall, but with delicate facial features, Freja’s the ideal runway model, which makes her so popular amongst designers. She has done pretty much everything from Couture shows at Chanel to H&M advertisements (going back to her Scandinavian roots). If you thought it was only Alexa Chung who had bags named after her, then you’d be surprised to find out that Freja Beha has as well, by the likes of Jill Stewart and Chloé…in addition to a pair of lace-up Alexander Wang boots. This model preaches tough tomboy at almost every angle taking the fashion world by storm, floating through life and rewriting all the rules.
