Jenna Sauers’ primary complaint about Freja Beha Ericson’s editorial was that it was super boring. We just get VOGUE for the pictures anyhow: It’s an article that could be submitted to win Ladymag Editorial Cliché Bingo: the endless discussion of the subject’s looks and her style, the series of fashion brand names that resounds like a bass line through the piece, the one-line quotes from industry sources, the report from the front lines of the photo shoot. If you Google her, one of the first things that comes up is a big picture of her kissing a chick, for God’s sake.“She has laid roots in Denmark, where she recently bought a home in which her best friend lives. We read about gay people all day and therefore know, KNOW like you KNOW that you’re gay, that “not living in the closet” does not a lesbian make. If had dropped the L-Bomb, it’d be all anyone was talking about, and Freja would lose her chance to come out spectacularly on the cover of People Magazine in 2015. KILL ALL HUMANS is actually Autostraddle’s motto, just a fun fact! ” The Westboro people stood across the street with their own signs.
The photographer and What Vogue can’t or won’t say, but what is totally obvious to anyone actually interested in this woman and her life, is that Freja Beha Erichsen is an extremely successful model and she dates women. Freja hopes to return there, and maybe one day raise a family, but she is a long way from settling down.” Here’s the thing: Freja has not yet “officially” come out. Jenna’s argument is totally logical/sensical for anyone less-attuned to the GLBT media machine than the GLBT media, we’re not faulting her for writing something that makes sense. A collection of Jedi Knights, anime girls, and others were lined up on the street when the Westboro protesters arrived. Besides the aforementioned Obama poster, they also held slogans like “Inconvenient Truth: God Hates Divorce” and “God Hates You” (guess these fire-and-brimstone types missed the “loving God” day of Sunday school, huh? The coverage of the WBC’s kind of bizarre protest of Comic Con makes us question their strategy even more seriously than before, and also appreciate the geeks and nerds of the world even more than we did previously, which is saying a lot, because I mean have you ever met Taylor?
Actually, Freja Beha Erichsen’s life has been a big deal to us forever.
I mean look at her: This month, she’s on the cover of W Korea: And on the cover of Vogue Paris: And in an editorial for Interview Magazine with Dan Kling, which is the gayest straightest editorial of all time: But most importantly, she’s on the cover of British Jenna Sauers at Jezebel points out that despite last month’s engaging profile of Lara Stone, there’s something lacking in Freja’s editorial and she suggests that British Vogue is afraid of the word “lesbian.” Yes, somehow managed to write like 1,200 words on Freja Beha without mentioning her sexual orientation!
In case you missed our late night couture story last night, there are some interesting rumors floating around the couture shows.
The 13-year-old looked model ready at her sister's wedding last weekend in a white dress, ballet flats and flower crown.
Muse is a model-mommy, and Freja's a notorious modelizer (she's been linked to Catherine Mcneil and Irina Lazareanu).
Rumors of the coupling date back to October 2010 in forums, when Muse began her meteoric rise into supermodeldom.
Erichsen made her debut as a model in 2005 at the fall Paris and Milan shows of Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Miu Miu (which she opened).
She continues to walk the runways of New York, Paris, Milan and also London, both in the Ready-to-wear and Haute Couture seasons.
