Freja’s New Job
Freja Beha Erichsen has been signed as the latest face of Maybelline New York, joining Erin Wasson, Christy Turlington and Charlotte Free.
“I’m so honoured to be representing such a daring, trendsetting brand, and I’m looking forward to this new and exciting chapter in my modelling career,” Freja said. “I was introduced to Maybelline New York products with Volum’ Express The Falsies mascara. It worked really well, and I loved the instant effect… I’m very grateful to be given this opportunity and it’s a pleasure to be working with the talented creative team at Maybelline New York. [Beauty] is hard to define. You can notice it in an instant with just a glance, or it can be deeper, like when [a woman] opens herself up and shares something very personal or inspiring.”
The Danish model - whose first advertising campaigns for the brand will launch later this year - also revealed that it was her mother who taught her the value of a good diet.
“My mother taught me the beauty of a well-balanced diet. She raised me to eat a lot of organic fruits and vegetables,” she said. “But [my favourite food] depends on the meal. For brunch, I usually order eggs benedict. And for dinner, I enjoy a good steak cooked medium-well.”
With her edgy beauty and her ability to carry off lashings of black liner with aplomb, it’s certain that Freja will make a fiercely cool addition to Maybelline’s stellar model line-up - as well as providing her with an opportunity to pursue her love of travelling.
“I’ve always wanted to travel to Iceland. I can imagine myself exploring the island, taking long walks around the volcanoes, relaxing in the hot springs, and perhaps becoming friends with a sweet little horse,” she said.
