“Kristen” by Beatrice Brandini

I love women beauty particular, irregular, “different” faces that are able to pass something …, it is called class, style, personality. Features that despite the passage of time remain intact, making these women, as in the case of Kristen McMenamy, women definitely fascinating.

American beauty, a model of great success, the star of the fashion system at least three decades. Talented and histrionic muse of photographers and stylists, woman of great class, recognizable in editorial or press campaigns around the world.

She started with long hair, then moved to a more image “grunge”, with short hair, but even if she is often “transformed” (black onyx, strawberry blonde, red, eyebrows shaved, or thin … ), she has always retained her charisma.

Among her most famous campaign for Versace Atelier, along with Nadja Auermann photographed by the great Richard Avedon in 1994; an editorial in which a creative and visionary Tim Walker transforms into a mermaid; many services at the hands of talented and investigator Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue, where from time to time makes a lady nineteenth century, an American high society, a romantic girl for Haute Couture, a lady of gothic rock dream….

The McManamy has also starred in a memorable Pirelli calendar signed by Peter Lindbergh, 1996. Made in California, specifically in El Mirage, the bed of a salty lake , where Lindbergh, probably the first to break with the past and make calendar really contemporary, photographed women “special and personal,” as opposed to what was the trend of the time, models stars and perfect (they were called Linda, Cindy, Claudia, Christy ….).

Even when married, pregnant with a dress from Chanel, alongside Karl Lagerfeld, his best man, like something out of a painting by Alma-Tadema, definitely fantastic.

Always elegant, although rarely “bon ton”, chic and stylish. In other women her sometimes eccentric combinations, her long white hair and her statuesque and “nervous” body would create questionable results and perhaps even to the limit of good taste, but Kristen does not, she is unique and chic.
