Monday Muse: What to Know About Iris Law

Iris Law for Burberry 2017.
Burberry's new girl.

Two weeks ago, Burberry dropped a campaign video for their newest beauty launch - the Liquid Lipstick.  In classic Burberry fashion (considering this is the brand that launched the careers of Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse), they tapped one of British fashion's most promising new muses to front the ad - Iris Law, teenage daughter of Jude Law and Sadie Frost.  But Iris is proving to be more than another celeb-daughter-turned-model; a creative in her own right with a strong sense of personal style and artistry, Iris is poised to take on the fashion world in a major way.  Get to know the new it-Brit with these 10 facts.

1. Iris is 16 years old, born on October 25, 2000.

2. She calls London home.

3. Her older brother Rafferty (aged 20) is also a model with a well-established career, having
 walked for Dolce&Gabanna and DKNY.

4. Her favourite photographer is Rankin, and she told ELLE that she has his photo book in her kitchen.

5. Kate Moss is her Godmother.

6.  Prior to landing a Burberry cosmetics deal (at 16, may we reiterate), Iris starred in a lookbook for Miu Miu.

7. She told W last year that she's dying to work with Gucci (we feel you, girl).

8.  The first fashion show that Iris attended was Vivienne Westwood, aged 10.

9.  She's a painter, studying for her GSCE art exam.  Iris also told W that she dabbles in photography too.

10.  Iris loves vintage shopping, telling TeenVogue, "I really like vintage blouses with feminine lace detailing — I’ll usually wear them with black trousers and trainers ... growing up [I] did quite creative things with how I dressed myself."

I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
