Secret Couple.

Cairo regulars/babe couple Matt Lawson and Liz Pffffffriem (no P sound, thank you) are featured in this week's post of Cairo fashion mania!
Matt (Secret Colors) currently works at the Boys & Girls Club and has played with bands like Stephanie, Solar Master, Yellow Rabbit, and The Rain Drops. Liz now works for the super-glamorous Grammy Awards, and has worked for The Vera Project, Rainy Dawg Radio, and SIFF.

Liz also has a mixtape series with Kari Odegaard, called Voodoo Reverb.

Hanging out with Matt & Liz for the afternoon was awesome, although we did have a few set problems. Below is a photo of Matt raising the white backdrop, which was too short (ha!).
I know they get shit about their height all the time but it just makes them so damn cute.

Also, we had guest appearance by Beth Corry and Marius Mazilu (the first ever interviewee) during our photo shoot, so they helped us out a little. Thanks guys!
