The effervescent Freja Beha Erichsen shines on the cover of British Vogue‘s September 2011 issue, marking her third cover for Vogue’s posher partner.

Vogue Italia is starting the new year with an absolutely stellar cover. You’re seeing it right, that’s Freja Beha Erichsen and Arizona Muse working as streamlined bombshells. This January 2011 issue shot was photographed by Steven Meisel in an 80’s-style Chanel ad, calling for Erichsen and Muse to wear the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 looks they debuted on Karl Lagerfeld‘s impeccable runway.
