My First Job @britishvogue 💓🍦scroll down to read my interview by @osman_ahmed_ 🍦🍨💕 Leaning elegantly on the Neapolitan-style counter of an ice-cream parlour, Saffron Vadher looks every inch the supermodel as she navigates Balenciaga’s hooped neckline to sip a milkshake. There’s no mistaking her for a waitress now, but not long before Saffron glided down the catwalks of Burberry, Chanel and Alexander McQueen - and appeared on the cover of the December issue of British Vogue last year - she was working behind the counter at a now-defunct milkshake bar in North Harrow, the London suburb where she grew up and still lives with her parents. Back then, the sort of drinks preferred by the fashion set - dairy-free smoothies packed with antioxidants - were not on the menu. “I don’t like juices, I want full-fat!” she grins. With a super fast metabolism, she’d down a couple of Aero Peppermint milkshakes every shift. “We had every chocolate bar under the sun; you’d throw one in, add some milk and ice cream, and Bob’s your uncle,” she says. “If someone ordered a medium, I’d always make it a large, so I could have what was left.” Despite the wealth of confectionary, the sweetest thing about her days as a milkshake “barista” was that she fell in love while on shift. “He’d always buy a canned drink for £1.50, when the cornershop next door sold them for half the price,” Saffron recalls of the boyfriend she’s been with for six years. “I’d always point it out to him, until one of the girls said that he fancied me. He would conveniently turn up at the end of my shift, so he could drive me home.” Photos by Paul Wetherell. Styling by Gianluca Longo.
In honour of #worldwishday, I am so proud to announce that I am working with @makeawishuk 💙 I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia just before my 4th birthday and have been in remission ever since my 7th birthday. My wish was to meet Barbie and I was lucky enough to meet her twice! I’m so excited to be able to make other children’s wishes come true. 💫
