An American in Paris - Athena Wilson

American ingenue Athena Wilson plays tourist on the streets of Paris for Russh's October 2013 issue. Photographed by Alex Franco, Wilson takes in the obligatory local sights including les Jardins Tuileries, the Eiffel Tower, l'Arc de Triomphe, and Montmartre. With a little help from stylist Gillian Wilkins, Wilson demonstrates that comfort does not have to come at the expense of style and elegance. Wilson is the embodiment of Parisian chic as she dashes from one end of the city to the other in ensembles from the Fall/Winter 2013 collection of Hermés paired with Converse footwear. Nineteen year old Wilson has been one of IMA's firm favourites since she emerged on the modelling scene during the Spring/Summer 2013 collections. Wilson's effortless cool, versatile beauty, and totally rad twenties style bob have since graced the pages of American Elle, French Revue des Modes, Dazed & Confused, Glass, Twin Magazine, Pop, and the British, Turkish, Russian, Chinese, and Ukrainian editions of Vogue. At first glance, Wilson's short hair and nonchalance may be mistake for a distinctly androgynous zeal however on closer inspection of her sultry runway swagger and delicate beauty, it becomes patently clear that there is a lot more to Wilson than meets the eye.
