She looks like a drag queen in the GIF.

That looks completely planned.

Also, those shoes are ugly.

And her ass looks large.

And this was 25 years plus years ago. Kristin McManface was hot for like 2 years ago in the mid 90's.

R4 It's from Valentino's spring 2023 haute couture show, like it says in the article that you can't read.

Big model feet crammed into too-small heels — she probably lost circulation. Look at the way her feet flop around like dead fish after she peels those pumps off her big flippers.

by Anonymousreply 9January 27, 2023 1:31 PM

Kristen is a legend and still working at her age. She's the Top Jolie Laide of all time. The dress is not cut to allow her to walk normally. Thus, the trip. Poor Kristen. I have always liked her.

Sure, laugh! Hardee har har! What fun! R12 shattered her coccyx and crushed nerves, and has hobbled with a cane ever since. R13 fractured both wrists and broke her nose, and had a concussion. Fortunately, her nose was repaired and more beautiful, but she had PTSD and fled modeling. Works the food bar at a Gold's Gym in flyoverstan. Do you see the way R18 keeps sinking. In fact there was a 15 foot drop under the catwalk into the cellar, which was a rattlesnake den.

Years ago there was an article about Kristen McMenamy in the New Yorker or someplace where they talked about how she was turned down by every major agency but she was so determined to be a model and so persistent that she managed to do pretty well for a couple of years.

Naomi is 52 and Christy is 54 and you will see Naomi on runways every year, and Christy very occasionally. They both do print work.

It was explained to you above that Kristen was the TOP Jolie Laide model. She was very hot in the early 90s for that. Very glamorous and edgy and high fashion. She took a break to have kids. Then she came back as a mature model and has walked TONS of couture shows ever since.

Isn't that what it looks like, r43? She isn't modeling and takes that little bow like the designer would. It looks like the center strip is illuminated from below and covered with translucent material that isn't meant to be walked on.

The woman at R18 was K. Morgan, a boutique owner. She missed the rehearsal walk the day before and so she didn’t know the middle part of the runway was sheer fabric.

by Anonymousreply 47January 28, 2023 6:53 PM

R18 shows CS Lewis is really reaching for ways to get to Narnia. "In the 1990's, Hillary Hogbottom was a well-regarded designer of women's attire. One day, at a fashion show highlighting her upcoming line of ladies' apparel for spring, she fell through the catwalk and right into Narnia she went!"

R35 - Janice Dickinson turns 68 in a couple of weeks, and would like to remind you that she is the original SUPERmodel, and is still very much in demand, even though she's never working very much, thank you. How dare anyone forgets the orignal model who put 'SUPER' into "SUPERmodel" !

At the 02:30 mark in the r34 video Mcmenamy gives a little hop, perhaps to avoid a fall (?)

She probably stayed there until after the audience filed out.

Thank you R34. I went to high school with Kristen, spent a little time with her after graduation. She had a pudgy boyfriend and a very conventional 70s/80s shag. She wanted to be model but was so generic and clueless that seemed unlikely.

I heard a lot about her from friends in the fashion industry over the years. But I never actually saw her work as a runway model. I saw a few photos and that was it.

I had been baffled by her success, but I get it now.

Here's a longer video of the incident at R18.

Almost nobody does anything to try to help her. The last model looks back and sees what happened, but just keeps walking. Finally, three guys try to rescue her, but one of them tumbles into the abyss himself.

I did notice that too R68. The last lady sort of turned her head, and she didn't try to help her at all. Then I thought maybe she really didn't see what happened from her point of view.

The fabulous thing about your classmate (!) Kristen McMenamy is her features were BIG. Symmetrical but almost ungainly. They could be manipulated to look grotesque.

That’s a good contrast to the pretty princess types like Niki Taylor and Christy Turlington, who are kind of interchangeable when you get right downtown it.
