Jenny Brunt always had the best short hair and going by her Instagram, she still has.
My friend Magazine Fan alerted me to Iconic Focus (what a great name), the model agency that now represents one of my favourite 90s models and others of a similar life stage. This Gap shot (above) was always a favourite. And here she is now…
When I think back to why I always gravitated towards a ‘garçonne’ style (a bit boyish but not totally unisex), it’s because I was a skinny kid growing up during a big 50s revival. We were all obsessed with Marilyn Monroe and vintage 50s dresses, but that look didn’t suit my body shape.
So instead I was drawn to the androgynous Buffalo look in The Face and i-D which was more about mixing things up. Pretty boys in pinstripe Jean-Paul Gaultier skirts or crop-haired girls in bondage trousers and a Ralph Lauren Victoriana shirt. Jeny Howorth and Jean Seberg in Breathless turned me onto the idea of short hair and a few years later I went to Buffalo hairdressers CUTS to get my bob chopped to a crop. I’ve been going there ever since – after all, why mess with a classic?
