girls just wanna have fun









During one of the days of London Fashion Week, while I was taking photos of my friends, I realised I was in the middle of a fun little shoot so started snapping them, too. I know that the taller girl in the gorgeous grey and nude leather dress is Poppy Delevingne, but I was busy shooting my friends and didn't ask who the other girl was. And now I can't get that Cyndi Lauper song out of my head. The Killers did a cover of it, but call me old fashioned: I feel the original is the best.

p.s. Well what do you know! My 'anonymous' source came thru in a matter of hours. First Almina tipped me off that she's done some modelling for ASOS. Then Anonymous filled in the missing puzzle piece: they are, indeed, sisters! I just think it's so cute to see a sister, who model, shooting her younger sister, who also models (both for Storm btw) at fashion week. Just being normal girls. Read all about it here on Vogue.com: Sister Act. Which is what, had I known, I've have called this post..

I love the boots too - but where I knew the girl from was driving me nuts until it just clicked. She's an asos girl! Yey me! Hope you're well! x

Anonymous!! Who ARE you!? You're right - and Almina, thank you, so are you - Cara, it turns out, IS Poppy's little sister, AND a model, and taht definitely looks like her on the ASOS site. Will update now.

This is such fun. All the answers, they're out there. All you've got to do is ask.
