Kristen McMenamy’s Second Wind

Aug 22, 2011 By Vaneza

Flipping through the latest issue of LOVE, I couldn’t help but be captured by model Kristen McMenamy…I don’t know if it was her amazing grey flowing hair or her somber yet androgynous look, but I was intrigued! So I present to you our latest Model Monday, Kristen McMenamy, 46 (yes, 46, you read right! Stella Tennant, eat your heart out!), who made her modeling debut in 1985 in campaigns for Jil Sander and Gerard Darel. From that point, she went on to graces several covers and runways while also becoming the face of luxury brands such as Chanel, Versace, and Fendi until around the beginning of 1998.

Perhaps what made McMenamy take a break was motherhood? She married photographer Miles Aldridge and had two children together…but that didn’t stop her from making a return to the world of modeling in 2004. Most recently, she’s received a fair amount of attention for not being ashamed to rock her beautiful grey locks. This season, she is the face of Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier, and we couldn’t be more excited!
