Andreea

Andreea is as comfortable behind the lens as she is in front. She wears pants as much as pink. She’s low maintenance and doesn’t carry a bag when she’s out – just her phone and her ID in her back pocket. She’s a no-makeup makeup lady – though probably not a lady at all.

Andreea has of those rare faces from another time, and yet somehow, equally ahead of her time. There’s a no-nonsense boyish charm that somehow increases her disarming degree of allure. There’s a casual disinclination towards taking herself too seriously. And there you have the French girl (or in this case, Romanian supermodel) effortlessness we all aspire to: to be simultaneously done and undone, charming and aloof, feminine and tomboyish. Once masters, you can pull off just about anything – and pull together a fairly disparately styled story. Admittedly, my only threads of consistency here were A) layering spaghetti straps over shirts and B) Andreea.

But you know, we could do a lot worse for a half day churning through looks on this kick-ass rooftop that the owner boasted as hosting Lenny Kravitz jumping off ladders, John Legend crooning at screaming women, and Rihanna and her wine glass.

Andreea didn’t really care.

The Studio W dream girl is not scared of heights. She’s as comfortable behind the lens as she is in front. She wears pants as much as pink. She’s low maintenance and doesn’t carry a bag when she’s out – just her phone and her ID in her back pocket. She’s a no-makeup makeup lady – though probably not a lady at all.

And I guess you could say Andreea is a perfect fit.
