ModelCrushMonday: Jamie Bochert
Jamie Bochert is my #ModelCrushMonday because she’s so COOL!
She basically radiates everything I’ve never been able to, namely ‘I could be having more fun elsewhere’ and ‘whatever, modelling pays the bills but I’d rather be doing my music, supporting Patti Smith’ and ‘Yeah the fashion world loves me – whatever’.
Scouted in LA working as a waitress, Jamie seems to dip in and out of modelling as she pleases. Whenever she returns she’ll immediately be landing catwalks for high fashion brands, cover shoots for editorials and highly paid campaigns. On the other side of the spectrum, I’m someone who always has my phone within arm’s reach *just in case* Igor rings with a casting – so I’m jealous of this devil-may-care attitude. Fashion loves reluctant and cool people like Jamie, and baulks at eager beavers like me who turn up fifteen minutes early and offer to make everyone tea.
But it’s also her look – she really stands out on the catwalk thanks to her long face, unfeasibly high cheekbones and that cool, boho hair fringe that I can never quite achieve – I either look like Cousin It or Cherie Lunghi.
Jamie isn’t stereotypically beautiful by any means, but striking she is, and she adds an edge to any outfit on the catwalk. I like the fact that she is never really transformed – no matter what she’s dressed in, you can’t take away her Jamie-ness.
And that’s why she’s today’s #ModelCrushMonday!
