Icelandic Cool

A few months ago my dear Icelandic friend Berglind, alerted me to the attention of a new model from her homeland by the name of Kolfinna Kristofersdottir. Pint-sized Kristofersdottir was indeed the surprise package of the Fall/Winter 2012 shows where she stood out in the line-ups at Prada, Versace, Emilio Pucci and Fendi amongst others with her pixie-like haircut, delicate features and eclectic sensibility. Nineteen year old Kristofferdottir has since parlayed that quirky insouciance into a most coveted status as the go to editorial it girl of the season with appearances in German and Italian Vogue, Dossier, Metal, Pop, and most recently Russh Magazine. Photographed by Alex Franco for the June/July 2012 issue of the Australian publication, Kristofersdottir displays the gnarly cool girl vibes that will augment her long-term career prospects in an industry otherwise overrun by pretty, vacant faces.
