Introducing Abbey Lee Kershaw
The rake thin model with multiple piercings and as many tattoos has raised many eyebrows for more than just that video. Her doll-like face gives her a childlike quality which contrasts starkly with her rocker girl reality. Many were quick to condemn photographer Terry Richardson for exploiting her in racy photoshoots, when Abbey herself claims to be completely cool with it. What makes us more uncomfortable, the thought of a sleazy older photographer exploiting a young model, or a young model being so confident in her experimental sexuality?
Either way, she makes headlines. She is much sought after for runway despite falling once at Rodarte, and fainting at Alexander McQueen due to a too tight corset. She missed a season of runway due to a broken ankle, and yet when she was able to, she raked in $100,000 just to grace the Gucci catwalk. Obviously there's something about Abbey. Let me know what you think of her.
