Codie Young nails casual cool in perhaps the chicest capital of the world--Paris. Far too cool for the tourist pics in front of the Eiffel tower or even a cliche walk along the Seine, this fair-headed model somehow still makes light wash jeans and white sneakers look enviably stylish. When I dress uber casual I feel somewhere between invisible and a slob, but miss Young is a land-locked mermaid still deserving to grace the pages of a fashion magazine in her most casual duds. It's a definitely a shoot that conveys much more cool than glamour and sometimes that's exactly what we want.
