"It's 10 years old now, and I still use it."
Mona Johannesson is the horse girl who by chance ended up in the modeling industry. Her appearance has often been compared that of the iconic Kate Moss, and being called ”Baby Kate” is something she has become used to. Among the brands she has worked with are Chanel, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Rodebjer, Nina Ricci and Miu Miu and she’s modelled for magazines such as Elle, Vogue and Numéro. Today she combines a modelling career with a life on the Swedish country side, where she is accompanied by several horses.
Her Eternal Flame is a true classic – which reminds her of one of her achievements as a model.
“This leather jacket from Acne Studios was given to me when I won the price as the model of the year at ELLE magazine gala 2005. I think it’s a great looking jacket that fit me well, its timeless and it’s now 10 years old and I still use it. But it also reminds me of a great achievement in my career as a model.”
