Knowing Galadriel is to know that she might just meet you for coffee in ‘cat face.’ If you hang out with Galadriel and her friends contrarian behavior is to be expected and adored.
Galadriel’s introduces the M.O. of her gang of ‘untouchabelles’ on her blog.
‘We draw cat faces on our faces and laugh too loudly in libraries. We have business cards and spikes on our shoes and jackets. A good pun will make us love you forever. A cheesy come-on and you’re done.
We read, of course.
We have our own places.
We have our own projects and our own goals and our own lives.
We are not your girlfriends.’
While that short-form manifesto may seem slightly intimidating, Galadriel is anything but. Her easy-going and free-spirited demeanor is reflected in her sense of style. For this shoot I lent Galadriel a couple button-downs that she absolutely fell in love with. ”

I asked Galadriel to share her personal sentiments on style.
“Caring about what you wear is not a vanity thing, it’s a creative thing.”

“I don’t care to amaze people or to intimidate people. I want my outfits to endear me to people.”
