Fashion tends to get painted as a cutthroat world full of editors who rule with an iron fist and cranky models in dire need of some calories. But fashion is also (loads of) fun, and there’s as much downtime on photo shoots as at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Not to mention, have you ever had to wait for a fashion show to start in a room without wifi? The only thing to do is chat with your neighbour. So, fashion friendships blossom rather quickly. Just look at Kate Moss and Stella McCartney, who have been working and hanging together for two decades without a problem. In fact, it was just announced this week that La Moss will star in her seventh advertising campaign for Stella McCartney. If all of that sounds somewhat giddy and loved-up for an industry that brought us the likes of Anna “Nuclear” Wintour, here are a few sets of fashion besties that might just change your mind.
Supermodel pals Delevingne and Dunn have an Instagram-ready connection cemented by dozens of Fashion Weeks walking the same runways, not to mention their latest turn modeling together for Balmain’s fall advertising campaign. And, while friendships between models are nothing new, Cara and Jourdan manage to set themselves apart with their level of commitment. The girls are almost literally joined at the hip - by the matching “DD” tattoos they got etched on their sides.
