Frida Gustavsson – Swedish Model

10 01 2010

She is young, born 1993. She’s got an gorgeous face. She’s known for her eyes and her fgustavsson_09octbs_valentino height. And we are both Swedes. I’m talking about Frida Gustavsson as the headline says.

 

Her career has grown really fast. She started her modeling career in Stockholm 2008. Later that year she moved to Japan to grow bigger which she succeeded to do. In 2009, one year later Frida signs a contract with IMG. In July the very same year she opens the fall Valentino couture show in Paris. The rest is history. She has opened shows for Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren.

Gustavsson also appeared in Vogue and Crash.

 

I believe she’s going to grow very big since she’s only 16 years old. But the modeling world is a  hard business and I hope she’ll keep up with it because I love her style. I think she is going to be the next big Swedish supermodel.

Five ways to…

3 05 2009

…Put color into your outfit!

A outfit can sometimes feel boring, uninspired and not so very colorful. I’ll show how to change that even if you’re not into bright colors or colors at all.

Sunglasses

Those purple sunglasses a la Ray Ban wayfarer ( which are cooler than fake but an awful lot more expensive) are a good safe choise if you’re looking for a new pair. They are timeless and this color will lively things up but arn’t too tacky.

Sunglasses from www.delias.com for $12.50

 

Bandana

Rihanna wears a gorgeous pink bandana with black dots. A bandana is useful when your hair is messy or unwashed but it still looks freaking good. Rihanna has a wounderful style and I’m jealous of her. In my opinion she has the coolest style of all celebs.

 

Belt

If you wear a high-waisted skirt, pant or a dress you can wear this red belt. If you have low-waisted garments the bely won’t usually show under the top. It might just be me… If you match a red belt with a black dress you’ll have a salsa-style but that’s only stylish.

Bag/clutch

A bag or a clutch is a good way to put color into a outfit. This bag’s from Marc Jacobs but I prefer to buy cheaper one in color so I can buy many and match them with different garments and outfits. A good tip when you buy a designerbag is to choose a timeless one. Like in black or brown leather so you don’t buy a cobaltblue so it’ll be out the very next season.

Shoes/Ballerinas

Another good way to wear a color is on shoes. I like ballerina in the summer and noone who reads this blog can have missed that I’m in love with coral. I like those leather ballerinas even if I always buy fakeleather because I wear them one summer and then they’re broken/smells like monkeys/dirty.

I <3 Yellow!

21 01 2009

Yellow is one of my favorite colors. I like yellow accessoaries because I don’t dress very well in yellow garments. I look too pale 😉 (the only yellow thing I can wear is bikinis and swimsuits.) But to have a yellow bag, shoes or earrings can make a whole outfit look much better!

Marc Jacobs

19 01 2009

I was looking at Asos.com and I found a dress that looks kind of  the Marc Jacobs dress Victoria Beckham wore a couple of months ago. I love the one shoulder off thing and the hearts. I’m definitely gonna buy it!
