Washing the fashion world's face with cold water

Helsinki, 4 degrees.
Yesterday's news was the fact that a Finnish model had managed to be on the cover of the Italian Vogue at the age of merely 16. As soon as I heard this on the radio, I had to check out what the fuzz was all about. This young Helsinkiana called Kirsi Pyrhönen has indeed done what many girls only dream of. After seeing the picture though, I was a little bit disappointed because her unique looks were not at their best in the picture. I was surprised to notice that in her so called normal pictures she looks very typical Finnish. Sometimes it's funny how something ordinary in one country can be considered so different in another one. Nevertheless she's stunning, I don't deny that. I especially like her eyes, I think they show her soul. When I said she's ordinary, I just mean that I believe we have many girls with similar, not identical but similar looks, here in Finland. Anyway well done Kirsi and thank you for putting Finland and Helsinki on the fashion map again! Some intreresting sites about her are:
