With her caramel freckles and cloud of coiled brunette curls, model Chanelle Coleman Törnqvist stands out from the crowd of blonde-and-blue-eyed beauties at Fashion Week Stockholm. And not just because of her soft and sultry look. The 25-year-old Swedish-American is a model, blogger, and assistant fashion buyer at H&M.
“I’m working from Monday to Monday,”
she says of the weekly grind, which takes her from the office to the studio, often donning “sporty chic” ensembles that she pairs with black Timberland boots and little to no makeup. Instead, she’s armed with hydrating creams by the likes of Swedish brand Björk & Berries , Clinique, and Kiehl’s, and sheer products such as Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat highlighter for glow. It’s a minimal recipe that allows for her greatest accessory, her freckles, to shine through.
“I never thought of them so much,”
says Törnqvist of her natural embellishments,
“until people came up to me and asked if I had drawn them on . . .”
