Edie Campbell - New Face from London to watch.....









If you know your fashion history this new young model's look is an enigmatic mixture of Penelope Tree, Marion faithful and Jean Shrimpton all rolled into one fabulous and unique face.
However I get the feeling from the way she projects herself in these images that she is not just a pretty face. She connects well with the camera lens and transmits intelligence in the same way Jean Shrimpton did. I would love to know what Bailey thinks of her! 

I see nothing of the waif in her a la Kate Moss thank goodness.

Eddie Campbell 19 went to St Pauls school. She is dating Johnny Borrell of band Razor light (who has a talent for dating successful girls), Kirsten Dunst being one he has ticked off his list in the past.

Her mother is architect Sophie Hicks a former Vogue fashion editor! her father Roddy Campbell a fund Manager. 

She was photographed with her mother for Vogue by Arthur Elgort aged 5 in a feature about her mother's architectural practice.

Burberry were the first to see her fashion potential and of course pedigree, Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney were tipped off and have also used her recently, clever things!

In December she will feature as one of Vogue top 20 favourite models.
