The Guardian Saturday interview: Jean Shrimpton

5feet12inches:

Jean Shrimpton was the world’s first supermodel and one of the defining faces of the 60s, but gave it all up and became a recluse. She talks to Alex Wade

It’s hypocritical to pretend that fashion is normal, that people in it are role models’ … Jean Shrimpton

Jean Shrimpton is nonplussed. She has just discovered that Karen Gillan, of Doctor Who fame, is to play her in a forthcoming BBC4 drama about her love affair with photographer David Bailey. Filming of We’ll Take Manhattan, which reprises a heady Vogue photoshoot in 1962, is due to start next month, but the world’s first supermodel could hardly be less interested.

Liu Wen, Tao Okamoto & Others by Terry Tsiolis for V #71

It’s been a while. I guess many Asian girls are hoping to look like European, Amerian or anyone not Asian.

But I find Asian girls very beautiful and sophisticated. I don’t get amused by those massive makeups that japanese girls usually put on their faces and stupidly huge fake eyelashes.

These are my favorite Asian models.

William Klein

Fashion photographer William Klein is one of my favorite photographers. He was originally a painter, but soon became a photographer in the fashion world during the fifties through his unique and unusual photographic techniques he revolutionized the fashion world. 


Klein’s work was considered revolutionary for its “ambivalent and ironic approach to the world of fashion”, its “uncompromising rejection of the then prevailing rules of photography” and for his extensive use of wide angle and telephoto lenses, natural lighting and motion blur. At the time, these techniques were considered too avant-garde for the mainstream and high-brow fashion world. Klein did not only introduce these techniques, he made them the standard.

(- Audrey Hepburn by William Klein)

Klein tends to be cited in photography books along with Robert Frank as among the fathers of street photography, one of those mixed compliments that classifies a man who is hard to classify.

Frida and Jac

It’s been a while. I haven’t taken any pictures lately so I’m gonna write about models again.

Jac and Frida.

They are very nice friends each other. Even when one of them is taking an interview, the other one tries to be in the behind of the video in a funny way. I love to see them being together.

Freja Beha is one of my favorite models as I wrote in my previous post. She inspires me a lot.

Abbey Lee said, ” Freja inspires me as a model. She is so strong and calm even when everything around her is going crazy.”

I think people like Freja can be successful. Insecure people can’t.

I wanna be a strong woman.

Well, I will for sure.
