Model Stella Tennant: Forty & Fabulous!
Age 40 never looked so fantastic! And, that is EXACTLY what supermodel, Stella Tennant is—forty and fabulous! For the most part, Tennant was said to have retired from modeling, but recently she has made quite the comeback in ad campaigns, editorials AND on the runways. During Paris Fashion Week Tennant strutted her stuff for both, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. You can also see her beautiful face and black pixie-cut hair in the current Chanel, Reed Krakoff, and Céline S/S 2011 ad campaigns. Dare I say that Tennant may be more wanted than Freja Beha Erichsen or Bambi Northwood-Blyth? Perhaps! And can I just say…YOU GO GIRL!
As mentioned above, Tennant is quite the experienced model. Her career began back in 1993 when she was photographed by Steven Meisel, and featured in Vogue British. Tennant has been photographed by world renowned photographers ever since, including Mario Testino and Patrick Demarchelier. She has also been featured in a multitude of world renowned fashion magazines, and walked the runways for top-of-the-line fashion designers. Not to mention, she is one of Karl Lagerfeld’s beloved muses. According to New York Magazine, Claudia Schiffer was awfully mad when replaced by Tennant at Chanel back in the day.
Do you want to know more fun facts about Mrs. Stella Tennant? Good, here it goes! She is married to French photographer David Lasnet, and together they have four children. Tennant is most known in the fashion industry for her androgynous look, her cute short hair, her lengthy height, and her septum ring (no longer in use, except to scare her kids). In her free time, Tennant likes to embroider, sculpt and garden. She sounds like an overall interesting person and an amazingly cool mother, especially since she incorporated her children into the H&M Fall/Winter 2010 ad campaign she modeled in below.
