how absolutely shocking! (lost in translation)



I don't have a clue what shocking news this model received on Day One @ London Fashion Week, but whatever it was, it sure got her up & running. Would love to hear your guesses. Be creative : )



Don't you love her hound's tooth cardigan and black thigh high suede boots? And she's got a little polka dot frock hiding underneath. (Don't you just love how the Brits call it 'dog's tooth' - everything gets lost in translation over the pond).




Oh and by the way re: the back to school special quiz, I haven't forgot you still need the answer. I'll be posting on it soon, I promise!

That girl isn't a model...she's Jameela Jamil...a presenter from T4 :)

Oh, could her ensemble be anymore darling? I want every last bit of it. And her hair - too cute! :)

I'm wondering if she didn't just receive word that she was late for a very important date! :)

I've just spent ages looking through all your LFW posts.. Just amazing! I think you really captured a lot of very stylish people. This is the only time of year when I really really wish that I lived in London..
But you've definitely made the best of it!
And I'm so sorry I didn't send those photos. We had a very impromptu trip to Wales, and there was no interenet there, so I couldn't send the images. They will be sent off tonight though, just need to compress the files :)
Brilliant post.

Thank you all for your lovely lovely comments and especially Anonymous, if you're reading this, thank you for identifying her! I knew she looked familiar & just assumed she was a model. Just goes to show: never assume.

Kristina, thanks so much for getting in touch! I've just looked quickly @ your blog & I remember you: I've been shooting you a lot yesterday it turns out. Actually will put a comment on YOUR blog..

I think she must have seen one of the models eating...

No! I SAW one of the models eating!! I can't say who: she was leaving after a show, poor thing, it was hotter than hell, hotter than TEXAS even, and I was starving & exhausted & could only imagine how she felt. Anyway she was running out through the entrance arch stuffing a chocolate croissant in her mouth. I asked if I could shoot her and she said, oh, no, please don't shoot me eating. I misunderstood at first and thought she meant no more shots, but she was fine with that part.

She did give me the most lovely shots. Just not eating. I wonder if that's in her contract: no one must ever, at any point, catch you getting sustenance from actual food, like other mortal beings. Those girls work so hard, and burn up so much energy running around - literally - that they need to constantly eat to stay alive. I have so much respect for them after this week.
