I Adore Hannelore

Hannelore Knuts

Hannelore Knuts is one of the most memorable faces of modeling from the past decade.  Although she didn’t have the mass-market ad appeal of many of her contemporaries, designers couldn’t get enough of the model’s androgynous runway persona.

In his recent retrospective, Jean Paul Gaultier included Hannelore in his star-studded lineup.  I hadn’t seen much of her since then.  For that reason, I was thrilled to see her on a runway again while I was clicking through the Milan shows.  It seems as if the thirty-year-old model just won’t go away, and for that I’m grateful.

Kudos to Francesco Scognamiglio for casting Hannelore, and kudos to the designer for putting on a another intriguing, yet not-so-subtle show.  Now if he could only learn a lesson from the model — to let talent and hard work speak for itself — he’ll be around for a long time, too.
