Daily Style Phile: Kristen McMenamy, A Timeless Beauty

by Georgia Bobley · March 1, 2012

American model Kristen McMenamy first made a name for herself in the late 80's when she worked at top fashion houses like Chanel, Valentino and Versace. It was during her early years as a model that she developed a relationship with Karl Lagerfeld, and once he adopted her as his muse, her career quickly took off. Known for her androgynous look and her ever-changing hair styles, McMenamy has been a style star both on and off the runway for over two decades. This super-busy supermodel is a mom to four children and also does work as an actress, but based on her most recent appearance--walking in the finale of the McQ Alexander McQueen runway show at London Fashion Week-- she shows no signs of slowing down.
