LFW 2010 - Hanneli Hanneli

Lets get one thing straight - at fashion week you either dress to shoot or to be shot. If you somehow magically managed to combine the two then.. well, you must be amazing! Those who dress to shoot opt for keds.. Those who dress to be shot - no limits there!

And then there is Hanneli... the rare breed of 'amazing' who manages to do both...  As a Vogue 'accredited' blogger Hanneli can hold her head higher than  all the other bloggers.. She gets invited to all the major shows and gets to shoot whatever 'real' photographers shoot.. And yet she is as humble and nice as a first timer..

It is really weird to see people that you have been 'virtually following' (yes, its legit and not a form of net-stalking) for months in flesh. The last thing you want to do is run up to them, introduce yourself and act all excited (well.. actually thats exactly what I did to some bloggers.. sorry - you know who you are :)

I guess what makes it weird is that you feel like you know them because, literally on daily basis, you get to read their thoughts on life/love/fashion/travel/[insert as appropriate] ... So naturally, when you see them you feel it only appropriate to pick up the real conversation right where the virtual one left off.

She is definitely humble and lovely. I shot her too at NYFW and she was so nice and patient . . . allowing me the time I needed to get shots of her.

Great analysis about the virtual meeting the reality.
Hanneli is one of the best.
