Judging by her off-duty model looks, Frida Gustavsson has always had a sense of style that’s sophisticated beyond her years. In this downtime between shows in Paris, she had all the classic yet casual glamour of Katharine Hepburn circa The African Queen, right down to the side parted waves and safari-style jacket.

You can’t fault the beauty of Frida Gustavsson: even when she’s having her hair tugged in every direction she manages to look a picture of serene elegance and grace. It was hard to believe the transformation – this was backstage at Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2013 show after all – that soon occurred from classic beauty to ’80s Madonna.

You wouldn’t call Ola Rindal’s shoot for Purple Fashion glossy or over-produced. There’s no heavy-handed photoshopping or complex studio lighting. You might even call it raw and natural-feeling. But it’s not the kind or raw you’d most commonly associate with Purple Fashion because it’s not the Terry Richardson kind. It’s got a hint of sensuality, a dabble of nudity, yes – but it’s executed with…
Effortless, and yet refined. That would be one way to describe Frida Gustavsson’s off-duty style. A clash of print on pants, shoes and bag turned this outfit into something eye-catching while the half tucked-in tee and messy hair added that air of ease.
