About Edie Campbell



Vogue, December 2010

Best Dressed List
“She’s not a label queen. She wears clothes that you’re not sure where they came from and puts her individual stamp on what she’s wearing.”
– Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director


Elle, September 2011

Most promising new models to hit the spring 2012 runways
“This girl is a future muse to designers because of her strong sense of style, as well as her well-defined sense of self. She has a look that combines beauty with a little character quirk as well. She reminds me of Jane Birkin.”
– Jennifer Venditti, JV8INC casting director



“Edie has the kind of quirky beauty that fashion types can’t help loving. And I won’t be at all surprised if she has a career like Stella Tennant’s — someone whose looks and intelligence keep the industry enthralled for a long time to come.”
– Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue


Refinery29, 17 September 2013

Who are some of your favorite models working today?
“I love Edie Campbell. I’ve worked with her quite a number of times, on a Meisel shoot, and another really awesome shoot with Tim Walker. She’s just really cool, really easygoing, and really nice, too.”
– Karen Elson, model


Elle France, 1 April 2014

“Edie went from this baby blonde to jet-black hair but she had been playing with this idea of chopping her hair for quite some time. Yet we waited until a punk-inspired shoot to take the plunge. This transformation triggered a tremendous boost of confidence, and while she was already successful, the edgy cut got the work flooding in as designers understood what she really was about.”
Natalie Hand, director of Viva London


June 2014

“Elegant, cultivated, spirited, she is a model with attitude.”
– Stephan Bezy, international general manager of YSL


19 June 2015

“I enjoy Edie’s Instagram account. She makes fun of “Instagram ethics” and of celebrity life(style). She is everything but that herself. She’s smart and very funny. I enjoy her slightly cynical sense of humour very much.”
– Saskia de Brauw, Dutch artist and model


Phaidon, 27 August 2015

What makes for a good model?
“Models have to be brave. You also have to have your wits about you, to have energy, and to try things. For instance, when I first started working with Edie Campbell, she had long hair down to her waist, and we wanted to do a punk story with her. We said, ‘Would you be willing to cut your hair off and dye it black?’ She immediately said yes. That’s what I like in a girl. I think particularly the English girls are daring and willing to try.”
– Grace Coddington, creative director of Vogue


Vogue Italia, 24 September 2015

Your icon?
Edie Campbell”
– Sunniva Vaatevik, Norwegian model


W magazine, 28 January 2016

What models do you admire most?
“Edie Campbell is unbelievable. She inspires me because she completed a degree while modeling at the same time and it gives me the confidence that I can balance both.”
– Alice Buckingham, model

“My bro Daragh Soden took photos of Edie for holiday magazine — only good things to say about her!”
Amerie Sodie, sister of Daragh Soden


CR Fashion Book, 12 April 2019

How has the definition of feminism evolved for you?
“There’s something about my job where you always feel you have to apologize for standing up for something. I really admire model Edie Campbell because she really has a point of view and she’s not afraid to speak out.”
– Karen Elson, model


Dazed & Confused, 12 July 2019

“I met Edie eight years ago while assisting. She’s one of the most beautiful, intelligent and funny women I’ve had the pleasure to work with.”
Susie Sobol, make-up artist

The Age of Personality: 25 Models Who Defined the 2010s
The 2010s will be remembered as the decade in which a new movement towards inclusivity, acceptance, and fluidity began. The model/slash concept ceded via digital platforms like Instagram to an age of personality, giving birth to the “Instagirls,” as Vogue dubbed them on the cover of its September 2014 issue.

Fringe hairstyles from choppy to side-swept bangs
The mullet cut isn’t for everyone, but if you’ve got the face (and fashion forward attitude) of Edie Campbell, why not play copycat with her super choppy fringe? dyed black mullet in 2013

One of our favourite fringes belongs to the stunning Edie Campbell, who always looks like the ultimate rock chick. Her gorgeously tousled short bob and full fringe make for hairstyle perfection. – blonde grown-out mullet in 2015

Edie Campbell’s fringe should be considered national treasure. The beauty stepped out with slightly blonder hair and soft waves (so gorge!) – signature delicate fringe in 2016

“The women of @agnonaofficial:
I had met @ediebcampbell when she walked for our show, and asked @ezrapetronio to photograph her in my collection for Agnona. I admire her intellect, her activism and I was charmed by her wicked sense of humour. I love how she always looks ever so slightly pissed off in photos but is, in reality, so good natured.”
Simon Holloway, Creative Director of Agnona

“One of the final things I commissioned was @ediebcampbell personal modelling memoir… having watched Edie grow up over the years in the world of modelling it is refreshing to see a sensible attitude prevails. She was once very kind to my pony mad daughter in her early teens at the @gucci horse show in Paris (what a sentence!) … my daughter was sat next to Bruce Springsteen (“he is some kind of singer mum” ) at the event but dumped him to get to the animals so Edie showed her round the stable.”
Lorraine Candy, former Editor-in-Chief of The Sunday Times Style
