The September issues are generally considered to be of particular significance, and Elle Sweden patriotically chose a Swedish national for theirs. Frida Gustavsson features, wearing the season’s trend towards baroque inspired embroidery.

Frida Gustavsson’s off-duty style is elegant beyond her years. Here she was spotted after the Christian Dior show in Paris wearing a ladylike chocolate brown coat over a grey knit and shirt; but the twist of an embellished choker with leather fastenings gives the outfit the sparkle it needs to keep it from feeling corporate. A studded leather clutch adds the element of youth.

Frida Gustavsson‘s sunflower yellow shift dress is an inspiration from the 1950s, while her bumblebee sunglasses take us to the Swinging Sixties. The motorcycle leather jacket and suede boots contribute more fuel to the burning style fire.
See the words ‘casting call’ in a video title and you expect some fairly inane content of models saying their names, their agencies, and maybe walking back and forth a few times. I know that’s what I was expecting of this Rodarte casting call video. But I was pleasantly surprised, not to mention highly entertained. Who would have thought that asking models some simple questions…
With dramatic makeup against Frida Gustavsson‘s porcelain skin and equally dramatic outfits from Jean Paul Gaultier’s archive, there was no need for decorative backdrops in this editorial for Stil Magazine. Instead, the utter starkness of the white background is the perfect compliment. Against it Frida can traverse the eras; moving from glamorous dress to glamorous dress, from echoes of the 1920s to the type of…
