Freja Beha Erichsen gets all dolled up for the Pop Magazine A/W 2011 cover. The issue was released with four different cover images, three of them featuring the work of performance artist Marina Abramovic.
Supermodel Freja Beha Erichsen poses with a marionette created by (and modeled after) Abramovic, holding the puppet's hand in hers, making for an eerie and haunting cover image. The artist herself appears in the two other images, once with the doll and in the other, made up to mimic a porcelain doll's face.
As a huge fan of Freja's work, it's awesome to see her shot in such an artistic and creepily captivating way. The Pop Magazine A/W 2011 cover shows how versatile the young model is, making the work look like child's play.
