MODEL CITIZENS: ANN + KIRBY KENNY




I first caught wind of these two bewitchingly beautiful twin models on the first of March three months ago, when esteemed blogger and casting director Douglas Perett of COACD posted two polaroids (pictured above and below) of Ann and Kirby Kenny @ DNA in New York. Twenty-four days later, Perett posted his  "Top Ten Faces of Fall/Winter 2010" piece, and sure enough, there were the Kenny twins at number one. Indubitably, you can count on the highly reputable Douglas Perett to select the best, and it is nothing short of evident that these two are headed straight to the top. 


I figured that much when an image of the Kenny sisters filled my screen while visiting the Hedi Slimane Fashion Diary. Now we all know the stature of Hedi Slimane, the photography mastermind behind the Dior Homme line, who has shot the likes of Kate Moss, Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Love, Robert Pattinson, and plenty of others. Not to mention his countless contributions to distinguished magazines such as Dazed, Another, V Magazine, and multiple Vogues.

It is with that knowledge that I am rather certain of the fate that the two darling Kenny girls have awaiting them. With their piercing blue, alien-like eyes and porcelain doll features, it is quite clear-cut why these two have caught the eye of someone such as Hedi Slimane. I expect it's only a matter of time before these two are gracing covers and campaigns from coast to coast.

Check out Hedi's shots below.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Kirby twins. In my opinion, they aren't very pretty. Also, they need to fix their runway walks.....it's so hard to watch them in the shows!

But, I do like how their agents chose to give them opposite hair colors...and I like their eyes.
