One of the coolest girls of fashion week because of both her personality and her own sense of style, Nadia Sarwar aka FrouFrouu is always under the camera radar. Following the beat of her own drum, Nadia has an eye for what she loves and wears it well. Bright orange is not an easy color, and even less when it’s a long gown. Yet no matter that, Nadia always finds a way to make her clothing suit her. With that vintage gown, a twist in the choice of Dr Martens shoes, the hat, and her distinctive nose rings, Nadia is that unique girl and a constant beautiful sight for the eye.
When Valentino Garavani showed his last collection, the fashion industry looked on to his successor. After Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli took their stand in the iconic brand, the classic elegance of Valentino prevailed. Yet a new youthful twist was added to the mix. Attracting younger generations and prevailing its’ traditional nature. Valentino has stood its ground as one of the major labels in the industry. Who better to embody that new Valentino woman than Hanneli Mustaparta. Her innovative way to look at her own style made her stand out as a girl to watch. Seasons later, she has risen to the challenge and always shines throughout fashion week. Although not obligatory to wear the same brand to the fashion show, Hanneli is stunning and effortless on this Jardin des Tuileries moment, in this Valentino ensemble. Because any woman can buy design clothes, but there are few women who don’t let the clothes wear them, but the other way around. Hanneli is one of those few women.
I might be biased being part Scandinavian, but sometimes, it goes beyond that point. With an avant grade, visionary magazine under her arm, a relaxed yet chic sense of style, and an ever cool attitude to her, the lovely Lisa Corneliusson (Editor in Chief of Rodeo Magazine) is always a delight to snap. In a delightful short summer gown, a tribal printed blazer and colorful heels, Lisa shines under the NY sun. Catching a quick smirking moment with her after Diesel Black Gold, outside the Piers, during New York Fashion Week and exchanging a few Swedish words, Lisa caught my eye and has been under my radar ever since. A definite up-and-coming.

As one of the most prstine and most beautiful faces of the industry, Andreea Diaconu (@ IMG Worldwide) has walked most of the coveted runways, graced some of the glossiest magazines and posed for several blue-chip campaigns. Meeting her for the first time, her recent June/JUly 2014 Vogue Paris in mind, it is no wonder why she has charmed the industry throughout. With that exotic, natural beauty and a radiant personality, a dazzling moment of true essence with the lovely Andreea after Hervé Léger by Maz Azria show in New York. Can honestly say, I’m still in awe.
There is something quite genuine to love about Elin Kling. No matter how big her hype has become, how far she has come within her career, nor how better known inside and outside the industry she is, this is a woman who doesn’t compromise herself or her image. Always wearing her own version of Elin Kling simplicity, she always shines as that same girl that entered the industry some years ago. Here in denim pieces from her own Guess line, before Isabel Marant, Elin simply is that effortless girl.
The all black leather look is not a simple one at hand, yet some people are better at it than others. With a stunning face and an equally detailed sense of style, the lovely Camilla Abry is a perfect combination of both. In a playful leather ensemble through overalls, a chic leather jacket, some open high-heeled sandals and that hat, Camilla proves that sometimes a little bit of play goes that extra mile. Certainly a girl to watch in my radar!
Always youthful and with a great sense of that inner persona on her style, the lovely Elena Perminova steps in a series of everlasting blue into the Valentino white catwalk, outside the Tuileries. With her long legs complimented by those off white trousers and that bright blue popping against her blond self, Elena proves that a diamond suits everything. And with her keen sense of style, Elena has proven herself to be more than an it girl, but a beautiful fashion diamond, walking on into the industry.
With that impeccable sense of style catered exactly to her persona, a moment in time with the wonderful Anya Ziourova (Fashion Director @ Tatler Russia & Creative Consultant @ Allure Russia), outside of Ralph Lauren, during New York Fashion Week. The contrast between the lines on the background and the ones from her blouse are a simple image compliment, yet that keen eye for color and detail, never seems to fail her. It truly is about going that extra mile to get that perfect look and reading beyond and in between the lines.

It is one of the last days of the entire season and most models have gone through long days of casting, fittings and shows. Stepping out of Miu Miu, the stunning Anais Pouliot (@ Folio Montreal, Elite Paris & The Society Mgmt NY) took some moments to smile and get snapped. With a face made for beauty, as it already is for Lancome, and the show’s cat-eye make-up, Anais is that perfect combination between feminine and youth. A simple, casual ensemble for a one of a kind girl.
