I still have to pinch myself everytime I spot myself in a magazine. Here I am shot for ELLE China’s August 2017 issue in collaboration with Marisfrolg. It’s amazing getting to feature the very contemporary and modern-chic style of designer label, Marisfrolg for ELLE China, all while twisting in the best of my bustling city, New York City. It was all about oversize everything and really eclectic layers like dresses over lace pants…belted and boxy cropped jackets… and extra wide-leg trousers that hit the floor. Talk about cool. It’s this fall that I can really play with interesting structures, shapes, and layers. Elegant. Marisfrolg is the master at elegance. I took my super chic looks and sashayed around the Lower East Side…hopping on top of cars and singing on rooftops. I hope you love this editorial as much as I do.
