Kristen McMenemy attended the pre-launch party at the Double Club in Angel, created by Fondazione Prada, in London on November 21st in all of her grey glory.  The former 80′s/90′s supermodel was known for her androgynous aesthetic and unconventional beauty.  Juergen Teller photographed her under unflattering conditions in 1996 wearing only the name Versace scrawled across her chest in lipstick for a project commenting on the oppressive standards upheld by the fashion industry.  Today she embraces what many consider to be a stigma; grey hair and wears it long and natural.  Other famous women who have opted to embrace stigma are Emmylou Harris, Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren.  Where do you stand?  To dye or not to dye?
