Models Off Duty*

Zlata Mangafic and Larissa Hofmann.

Le Grand Palais, Paris

Here are two supremely gorgeous ladies (not a term a usually attribute to models given their obvious position), Zlata Mangafic and Larissa Hofmann hanging out after the Chanel SS15 show during Paris Fashion Week. Zlata was an early favourite of mine when I first started covering Fashion Week, and whenever I’m in Paris I’m always on the lookout to get at least one or two great portraits of her… which I did and will put up in a separate post later today. As for Ms. Hofmann… what can I say? Her presence in front of the camera is so uniquely bold that it’s no wonder most photographers in my field love her so much. Personally, I love the rapport we have, and the fact that she’s completely open and spontaneous when I see her backstage before shows. One day I’ll probably have enough frames to make a book and call it The Life of Larry (like on Instagram!). They’re both a complete joy to photograph, really, and at the shows at least, they make my job very easy.
