I became quietly obsessed with Kristen Mcmenamy after reading an article by the amazing fashion journalist Holly Brubach. The article, 'The Eye Of the Beholder', gives an inspiring account of Kristen in amongst the chaos surrounding the Amazonian supermodels of the the 1990s.
Kristen was the polar opposite to the preferred look of that era. Red hair, pale skin, gaunt alien features, some thought of her as ugly, some thought of her as beautiful, some as interesting. Some say she is legendary Steven Meisel captured this for Vogue Italia July 2009. Simply stunning.
Heres a peak enjoy.
