Where have all the red heads gone?

Has anyone noticed the absense of redheads recently? It seems that many of the orginals have converted and infamous redhead Miss Cole is the only one left to hold the title. Take a look at the runways and most of the models will vary between platinum (agyness, georgia) faithful brunette (bette, freja) and glossy blacks (irina, hye) with very little representation from fiery haired models.


Elise Crombez, Anja Rubik and Stammy all began their careers a redheads, but have since changed and now seem to blend in more with the rest of the clotheshorses. Personallty, I prefer Jessicas present look, as I think she looks older, though maybe this is simply because I'm used to it. In terms of Elise, along with her redhair her radient complexion has disappeared and I'm missing both. And as for Anna, well put your hands up if you would have known about her "ginger past"?

Lets hope that the likes of Lily Cole and Cintia Dicker stay true to their (ahem), roots.

great post
i really like red hair, i think its stunning (on everyone but me - my hair decides to turn red however dyes it or whatever colour it it is dyed)
i love kate walsh from greys anatomys hair
and i much prefer cintia dicker to lily cole
i find lily a bit strange looking and not in a quirky model way, just in a not very attractive way
but each to their own and all i gues....

glad the redheads are getting some recognition, but you always see more of them in the winter anyway...for some reason this is when fashion loves those fiery tresses.
and agreed with coco; much prefer cintia dicker to lily cole aswell, she is a hot redhead, not an ugly ginger.

elise crombez looks hot in the red! i wish she would've stuck to her natural. though stam and anja actually look a whole lot better in blonde. i can't imagine lily cole in any other color than red, it's what make up her look! and of course her gorgeous eyes and thoes freckles of hers.

Great post and cool pictures!!

Even though she's old, don't forget Karen Elson...her vibrant red hair is the best thing ever.

i can see lily changing her hair colour, but i doubt cintia will, as she has recieved much praise about her hair.

I think Jessica Stam can wear any color hair but I think I prefer her as a red head.
I've also noticed that Stam looks a bit older or worn down recently.

I love red hair on Lily and Cintia. Ihope they never change.

I didn't know that Jessica Stam was redhead but I think that I prefer her in blond .
