Antonina “Tonya” Vasylchenko @IMGModels after Yigal Azrouel FW13
It was snowing/hailing so hard that day it actually hurt … love the makeup here! Not sure who did it, Francelle Daly did SS13.
Marie (マリエ) after @DieselBlackGold SS13
I love how loose, soft, and comfortable her outfit yet has a little bost from her booties. The pink is adorable and girly too. I really like how her outfit’s structure holds up. She’s an actress/model/blogger and also studying fashion at Parsons. I believe this is her fashion blog, “My Tiny Dancers” this is her food blog, there’s a page you can click to with her updates/news/etc. I don’t fully understand because it is Japanese : ) Also please let me know if she Twitter/Japanese Twitter/a way to send this to her. Thank you! Arigato!

See the shows she walked at Wilhelmina’s News blog here.
She is super nice! : )

I saw an elderly woman watching the sunset on the High Line today … I didn’t see her family but I hope they were around. I wish I had given her a hug, I was too absorbed in the light …
Frida Gustavsson (IMG Models) on West 13th Street
Frida is 18 years old and from Stockholm, Sweden. She’s currently #20 on models.com but I’m sure she will rise! She is currently in the SS12 Mulberry campaign with Lindsey Wixson (Marilyn). The campaign is very colorful (pastels?) and I like the two young faces together. I tend to like baby-faced models.
She is quite tall (180-184 cm / 5’11”-6’?) and I was instantly reminded me of how she she towered (in a good way!) in the Christian Dior SS12 Haute Couture show. Her gown’s pattern wasn’t one of my favorites but I’m sure it will grow on me. I do like the shape of the Dior gowns, only tall models could pull it off.
On the more commercial side, Frida is the face for her home country’s H&M Summer 2012 collection. Remember how I mentioned she and Caroline Brasch Nielsen (Marilyn, my go-see photo of her jumping here!) are in the H&M Fall 2011 Consious Campaign together as well? You can see it here. I’m so glad and thankful that I’m seeing a lot of my favorite models over and over again and often working together! Small fashion world!
Last year Frida was a street style star utside of Valentino. Everyone loved her outfit. See one version here on Gastro Chic.
Frida has tons of other work out right now. Check out her models.com page, Fashion Gone Rogue and this fan site for more detailed information.
Last notes: Frida was wearing a Swedish Fjallraven book bag, it was quite cold that day, and she is very nice and polite.
Matching purses, orange, and my own shadow in the Meatpacking District.
