Jordan is the ultimate guy: hot, 20, borderline pro sportsman & there’s two! He shares his career with model twin brother, Zac. Together they’ve done Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Abercrombie & Fitch plus Tom Ford has flown them over for a meet and greet.


Guess Who: Marthe Wiggers

This week SMR will be previewing the hottest up and coming models.
Model No. 1 Marthe Wiggers (IMG Australia).

Photographer: Marnie Haddad for StyleMeRomy
Styling: Romy Frydman Hair: Jenny Kim Make-up: Claire Thomson
Marthe wears James Perse and Kirstin Ash necklace.

If you’ve been following Elle Japan or Madame Figaro you might have guessed it was Marthe Wiggers from Holland, who we’ve been lucky enough to have here for four years. Not for long, she loves modelling & is hitting Europe next.


Benah Be Mine

I shot the home of Brenda (Benah) and Ben Briand (Director of the Sarah Snook ‘Dance‘ clip). Super talented Ben is working on a feature film and his amazing wife Brenda is getting ready for Benah Be Mine, bringing fine jewellery into her range of accessories, which launches in August.

Brenda (with  daughter Milla) wears Benah scarf that’s being re-released for Winter 2012 in different colours.

Brenda designs by reflecting where she is in her life and what’s going on.

Their biggest inspiration, daughter & babycakes lover, Milla who has her own instagram.

Alex iPad case from my SUNSHADOWS collection this SS12 and books that Ben bought me for my birthday. We display our most recent buys.” BB

“We got some records as a wedding present a few months ago, we thought we’d keep the collection going and get a record player eventually.” BB

“Romy & Milla think this painting looks like me.” BB

“We try to have fresh flowers all the time, the size and frequency depends on our budget!” BB

“One of Ben’s old posters from his collection.” BB

“The beginning of a memory wall we’re working on.” BB

“Milla is less about the cake, more about the sprinkles.” BB


Not Suitable For Children

At the NIDA gala last year, friend & publicist Jess Carrera organised a very impromptu afterparty where I witnessed the brilliance of Sarah Snook’s dancing 1st hand. So this is where the idea was born to shoot this video, exactly a year ago!

Chatting with Sarah Snook…

SS: Hi Romy! How are you?

SMR: Just got back from Paris & I’ve already booked my next flight! You seem to be busy, what are you up to right now?

SS: I’ve been running around doing publicity for my first feature film Not Suitable For Children, which has just been released in cinemas. It’s pretty exciting! And I finished filming my first US feature in May, a horror flick called Jessabelle.

SMR: We both danced the night away at the NIDA gala, what did you wear?

SS: I wore Thurley and the Peeptoe shoes you gave me from the shoot. Labels I also love are Mrs Press, Watson x Watson, Friend of Mine, Gary Bigeni & Magdalena Velevska.

SMR: Where and when do you dance?

SS: Wherever and whenever I can. I’ve been known to throw in a few hop-skip-and-a-jumps on a run, when I thought no one was watching! Do you dance Romy?

SMR: Normally only at the disco but if DJ Zen is playing, anywhere! What’s the best song to dance to?

SS: I think the best song to get me razzed up is probably Call Me, by Blondie. I think because if I could fly, I’d choose that as my flying song.

SMR: Sweet!
