There’s definitely something grey in the air as we approach the fall days! Take for instance the August 2010 issue of Dazed and Confused with Kristen Mcmenamy and the August 2010 issue of Vogue Italy (with the same Kristen McMenamy).
As hard to believe as it may be for the fashpopulation out there (and more), Kristen’s grey hair is the result of her normal aging process. No wig (Lady Gaga, anyone?), no fancy dying (Tavi looks familiar, right?), just plain ol’ Kristen thinking that growing old can also be rock’n’roll without layering makeup and disguises. If early on I wished I followed Natalia Vodianova’s fountain of youth policy, now I have to state, in a more realistic note, that I wish I’d be like Kristen Mcmenamy when I grow old and grey. And beautiful. And fashionable. Aaand… I should stop, right? (more images right after the jump, click here for the gallery! Don’t miss the Vogue Italy video!)
But not before I’d take Vogue Italy for a fancy talk ride too! I could go both ways with Kristen’s pictorial – I could take it down just like I did with Abbey Lee Kershaw commercial just the other day, or… However, seeing the behind the scenes footage with such a song (Smoke City’s Underwater Love) I find it hard to look at things from a deathly perspective. I’ll just make it about a siren. Or about the massive oil spill. Anything but Abbey Lee’s Lewitt abomination. Clear as day, the pictorial is all about “Water and Oil” – though it comes a bit late, given that the leaking oil pipe was sealed as of soon. Let’s move on to fashion: what say you? Growing old will now become growing fashionable?
i love Kristen she is one of my all time favourites!
She still has it.
Both shoots are rather nifty but her Italia Vogue shoot is getting a lot of noise due to the subject of the shoot.
I am of two minds of this actually.
I am delighted to see Kristen’s long silver hair. I am a mature model and I too have very long silver/gray hair which I would not dye for the world. It is wonderful that top publications are willing to embrace the naturalness and the beauty of gray hair
