God Save Iekeliene


After a short absense (where was she?), everyone's favourite Dutch funnygirl is back on top form. Spring 2008 sees her as the face of Topshop, looking gorgeously chisseled in those floral minis that are now guaranteed to be selling like hot cakes now since everyone has copped a look at her legs in the adverts.

A must see is a feature in the latest issue of tank magazine, with her Iek at her home. The typically Stange-esque picture showing her in her candy coloured knick-knack frenzied bedroom surrounded by her collection of My Little Ponies has to be the highlight.

She reminds me of a cute little animated Julie Delpy

Many have drooled over snaps of her outstanding street style in the past, but it's been a while, so here's a recap on the girl who must be rewarded with the title Eyecandy of the Moment.

Nice to have you back, Missy, and get yourself in some more spring editorials, please.

I was wondering where she went.
She really knows how to make a come back...even if she wasn't gone for that long.
The photos are gorgeous from what i can see. I can't make them enlarge though.

Love her! How can a face that is essentially made up of sharp planes and angles still look so femme and pretty? Too too gorge.

I love her hair

did you know that she only accepted friends on livejournal that gave her a Little Pony? it is a curious fact about her, and I think it's true

discothequechic said...

Nice anecdote, Susie!
And that's very interesting, MATP, kind of want to know more.

Anyone else really want to start collecting My Little Ponys now?
Or rather carry on where they left off.

I'm such a natural hoarder that collecting things really appeals, but my sensible head says no, sadly.

The Clothes Horse said...

I love her so much--she is so crazy and adventurous with her style (more groundbreaking than Irina or Kate!). And I still hold that she should change her last name to "Strange." It would be too perfect.

I just love her, my favourite model by far, just so much character in both her appearance and personality not to mention her amazing fashion sense.

Fashion's Darling said...
