who's that girl: mystery british muse



There's this girl - I never met her, we never spoke - who keeps cropping up in all my LFW photos (September, too). It's like how Hitchcock always did a little cameo in his films.. she's brilliantly creative, there's always something ironic & clever (like wrapping the iconic Burberry check scarf round her grey/white hair), and yet no one seemed to ever take her photo. She's like a figment of my overactive imagination. I haven't seen her on other blogs. I don't know what she does, but she seems to know people & when she's alone, she's hard at work.. I've seen her at all the shows.. I could do a whole series on the shots I've got of her. In fact, I think I will.

Think of this as the first in yet another series. I bet I get an Anonymous tip off soon who she is. Meanwhile, I'll find you more shots.

She looks like Gala, fromhttp://galadarling.com/

I could almost bet its her? Though I don't think she's british AND her hair is slightly lighter. If I'm wrong, she has a mad clone over there.

Hi Miss Launderette, I've looked and having seen Mystery Girl a lot, I don't think it's her.. but very good guess. Must be a mad clone. Will find more shots, that might help.. thank you!!

I know "Mystery Girl" I met her and spent about a month with her. She is one of the best people I have ever met, hugely interesting, spontaneous, a right laugh and yes she is one of a kind. She likes what she likes and no one tells her otherwise. I'm not gonna disclose any details, but she is amazing x
